I've known Kate for awhile, we have a mutual friend who was a bridesmaids in this wedding. Knowing I was in the wedding industry Kate came to me for advice on outdoor venues and I told her hands down that Oatlands Plantation was my favorite. She took my advice and booked her wedding for Labor Day weekend. I then held my breath and prayed it didn't rain for her, as this location doesn't have a good back up plan. Although it did rain a little you wouldn't know it from these photos taken by Katie Stoops.
