They may be subtle, but the stripes on this Hayley Paige gown are stunning. They give the classic silhouette a fun punch of pizazz and add in the pup, and this wedding is just fabulous, no doubt about it. Caroline Lima snapped up the style and the sweet fur baby – and every other pretty detail of this rustic celebration – and they’re all in our gallery, ready to be enjoyed, right this way!
From Caroline Lima… Meeting clients who dote on their animals as much as I dote on my golden retriever Ronon is always a pleasure. And that pleasure is easily doubled when the couples’ pup is included in their wedding!
I had the great good fortune to be Cara and Trey’s wedding photographer, and their black lab Luna (whom they call their “puppy-daughter”) was a huge part of the festivities on their day! What a treat for me and everyone else too! Luna is one of the sweetest, most well-behaved pups I have ever met! She walked down the aisle with Cara’s maid of honor Brittney, and got a huge dose of love from everyone present! The happy grin on Luna’s face showed all day long how full of love and life she is… but I think that’s to be expected, considering how kind and generous her parents are.
Cara is one of the most genuinely sweet brides I have ever worked with; she and Trey took the time to talk to each and every one of their guests and make them feel special. Cara’s emotion during the ceremony was so beautiful to see. And her Hayley Paige striped dress was completely unique! I am such a sucker for stripes, and this flowing gown was a great combination of elegance and fun!
The ceremony and reception took place at the Deep Run Hunt Club in Virginia, and we had the most beautiful weather for an outdoor wedding! This location was new to me, and it had some serious rustic charm. It was perfect for Cara and Trey and their puppy-daughter, just about half an hour away from where the bride and groom first met at Randolph-Macon College. I love it when couples keep their celebration in their community; it can mean so much to them and their family and friends.
