When a Horse Drawn Carriage Shows Up at a Wedding

Monday, November 25, 2019 Williamsburg, Virginia

Almost nothing represents Historic Williamsburg more than a horse-drawn carriage driven by a gentleman wearing a tricornered hat, and when that kind of magic happens in a wedding, we are smitten! Ellie and Scott fell in love at The College of William and Mary, so choosing the Williamsburg Community Building in the heart of their favorite city was an easy decision as wedding planning began. They chose a romantic theme highlighted by bright pink flowers and soft sage green bridesmaid dresses with Scott wearing in his Coast Guard dress whites. We can't help but swoon over this classic day.

Ellie and Scott's summer wedding was a showcase of the best Williamsburg has to offer and the love that has grown between these two. From timeless portraits in Wren Chapel to golden sunlit moments captured by Ryann Winn Photography, we're reliving the magic of the day right along with Scott, Ellie, and all their special guests. We can't help but smile at the fun and too cute for words personalized cake topper from the big Lego store in Manhattan to represent their move to New York City (and the groom's love for Legos!) made special for their Coast Guard wedding!

Enjoy the beauty of quaint Williamsburg and the unique love celebrated on this special day as you talk a historic scroll through one of our favorite areas in Hampton Roads.
