You won't even notice the rain at this fall family wedding

Wedding family
Photos by Heather Chipps Photography

Autumn weddings. Rainy day weddings. We love 'em all, and Dan and Daisy's wedding last October was both. They got married on a beautifully drizzly autumn day at a Virginia vineyard, surrounded by pumpkins, dogs, and family. (Sigh. I just love photos of mama brides getting ready with their kiddos!)

Photographer Heather Chipps estimated that Daisy thrifted or made about 70 percent of the (very lacy, very vintage-flavored, very English-cottage-tea-party) decorations herself. Keep an eye out for the assorted teacup saucers to use for dessert! Then there are the dip-dyed cloth napkins on the dinner plates. And you'll have to scroll to the end for, in my opinion, the best photo of the bunch: Embroidery meets profanity? Sounds like a match made in heaven to me.

  1. So beautiful! That first photo with the mother-daughter kiss might be the best wedding kiss photo of all times 🙂

  2. Agree! Amazing first photo with the mother-daughter kiss. Love both dresses – each is just gorgeous in its own way. Also love the embroidered message in the final picture 😉

  3. You're right this is a gorgeous rainy, autumn wedding. I'm so happy the couple felt like sharing with us.
