An intimate, springtime Castle Hotel, New York wedding


Justin & Victoria didn’t know what to expect on their April wedding day. We all know the saying about showers… well, instead of a 45 degree drizzly day, the universe blessed them with a gorgeous 75 and sunny! They traveled from their home in North Carolina to The Castle in Tarrytown, New York outside NYC. 

A little backstory: Justin & Victoria met in the summer of 2011 while working together. Justin was entering his senior year at Clemson University, where they stayed in touch over the years, even through moves to NYC and Charlotte. He invited her to a Clemson football game and mailed her a Clemson hoodie - and three weeks later she was on a plane to see him! They started a brand new life together in North Carolina, and popped the question on a vacation to Arizona during sunset. They are utterly OBSESSED with their dog Lunabelle, love home improvement, hosting southern BBQs, and Sunday breakfast at their favorite neighborhood spot.

Victoria got ready with her mother (really, her best friend) as Justin put on his cufflinks and put on his finishing touches in their connecting suite. She wore a piece of each of her great-greatmothers' jewelry, along with a photograph of her father sentimentally wrapped around her bouquet. Their wedding was family-focused and beautifully intimate, with only 55 of their closest friends and family in attendance. They read their vows to each other underneath a blooming spring arch, sealed the deal with a kiss, and ran off for a private celebratory toast as husband and wife.

Mr. & Mrs. Brooks, may your new life together be as joyful, tearful, wonderful, SO FULL as your wedding day. XOXO!
