Glen Foerd Mansion Wedding in the Pouring Rain – Courtney & Adam

post by nat

It all started in a Psych class at Duke, but it took Adam two years to ask her out. Clearly she said yes and things progressed from there. Once he proposed they started looking for a venue to hold their wedding in the spring or summer. As most of you know things book up pretty quickly and initially they found many places that were already taken. But Glen Foerd was just waiting for them. They found it and just loved the setting!

Glen Foerd Mansion fit their romantic, slightly vintage garden wedding perfectly. The whole place was adorned in pretty florals, with plum and lavender tones. The lavender was chosen to honor Adam’s mom, whom they lost not too long ago and it was beautiful. The day  was filled with laughter, tears and a whole lot of joy as they celebrated with their friends and family :)

Glen Foerd Mansion in all it’s glory.

Courtney requested that we take a picture of their rings on piano keys as Adam is an accomplished pianist, and I love it!

But we had to end with a shot that captured that crazy rain, I don’t think it bothered them a bit ;)
