This May gave us at Aesthetic Life Studio some beautiful weather that really made the day for Sarah and Francesco’s wedding. This beautiful couple was wed outdoors at Springfield Manor. Located in Thurmont, Maryland, Springfield Manor Winery and Distillery provides beautiful grounds and historic buildings that makes the perfect canvas for wedding portraits. The bridal party got ready on the property and while the groom took a quick shot of Bourbon with his groomsmen before heading down the aisle, the bride had a beautiful first look with her father and paternal grandmother, which included some lovely parting gifts! Check out the photos below that Rodney captured, you do not want to miss them!
At Springfield Manor, the ceremony space is outside that faces an altar and a background of continuous treetops. The day was absolutely beautiful and just a few clouds stretched the sky. The bride was absolutely stunning as she made her way down the aisle with her father. And after a hug and a kiss Sarah was placed in the hands of Francesco. They then took part in a sand mixing ceremony to signify the coming together of two people to become one. After, they shared their handwritten vows, exchanged rings and became husband and wife!
While the guests made their way into the cocktail hour the bridal party stayed behind for family formals. Once these were captured the bridal party was announced into the reception area. The reception space was decorated beautifully with large florals, personal touches throughout and even had a sweets table! Sarah and Francesco then shared their first dance as husband and wife and this was followed with their parent dances and toasts from the wedding party. Once the cake was cut and cupcakes were passed around, everyone danced the night away as this became quite the party! We had a wonderful time capturing the memories of this day and we wish the bride and groom the best!
