This wedding was extremely sentimental for me. I shot my first few weddings at the Wayside Inn with my mentor Jerry Schrader. I learned recently that he passed away in October. I enjoyed many great weddings with him there and it will always hold a special place in my heart! The Wayside Inn was the where I cut my teeth in photography back in the day! The church is picturesque church in the middle of the wood – right off a post card.
Stephanie and Aaron didn’t exactly get sunshine and rainbows on their wedding day, but you would never know it! Even with the rain that seemed to be the common theme this fall, they didn’t let it phase them. We got them outside and even managed to stay dry – and got to enjoy the amazing foliage and water wheel. Instead of having their reception inside the inn, a gorgeous tent was built to accommodate their guests complete with fabulous chandeliers.
I will think fondly of Jerry whenever I am back at the Wayside Inn. Thank you, Stephanie and Aaron! Best wishes to you both 🙂
