Their's was a match made in Heaven. I don't mean to sound cliche, but when Mary met Seth, planets had to have aligned - replete with angelic singing!
There is no way that God didn't intend on these two people getting together. When we met them over a year ago, we noticed how they interacted, it was effortless...they were truly best friends. It was the same later on at their engagement session, and again on their wedding day. And not only did they plan to see each other as a First Look before the ceremony, they made a few extra minutes to have portraits taken on the Crim Dell Bridge when we were finished with the family + wedding party. The June heat was damp and stifling, but it was that
important to them.
... as they walked and talked, we hung behind clicking away. They needed very little direction, just a little nudge here or there into the best light. They were best friends, it was their wedding day, and capturing their love was effortless.
The vendors that Mary + Seth assembled were an awesome team:
Ceremony: College of William and Mary, Christopher Wren Chapel
Reception: Nancy Davis of Ford's Colony/Garden Pavilion
Hair Salon: Bubbles Hair Salon, Williamsburg
Bridal Salon: Brides by Demetrios
/ Frisco, Teas
Florals: The Flower Cupboard
Organist: Beckie Davy w/ Wren Chapel

...Mary, just seconds before she saw Seth.
their First Look...
...this can't happen down the aisle... we were in a garden close-by, and it was magical.
...a few quick portraits and we were off to their ceremony.
The Great Hall has amazing light, and I do believe Mary was radiant.
... this exit shot (taken by Grant) is magical. ;)
...a few quick portraits down at the bridge.
...Seth, I think she's a keeper.
Mary designed and decorated her tables around their World Travels. It's incredible how many places they have been.
Each table was a different country...
...three tables were here in the good ole USA. Mary + Seth's memorabilia made for great table conversation.
a quiet moment between best friends...Mary's father, Harry E. McKillop and H. Ross Perot.
Just before the skies opened it's torrent...
