Emily & Victor's Wedding at the Smithville Inn
Our first wedding in 2014 and I think our fingers are just now thawing out! Emily & Victor had a beautiful wedding at The Smithville Inn, and to their credit they stuck it out in the cold quite a while so we could get some photos outside.
We started the day with them at Stockton Seaview where they all got dressed and ready. Everyone was super laid back which really set the tone for the rest of the day. We could tell it was going to be a nice relaxed day. From Seaview we all went to The Smithville Inn for Emily & Victor to see each other for the first time. As soon as they could see each other they both couldn't stop smiling. All we had to do was let them be for a minute and they would almost always start laughing together, it was great to watch!
After their beautiful ceremony Emily & Victor braved the cold once again as the two of them released a Chinese Lantern into the night sky. After that it was party time. The reception looked amazing thanks to all the details put together by Val their wedding planner (who's wedding you will see right here in about a month). It was a great first wedding back for the 2014 season and we want to send a big thanks to Emily & Victor for being such a great couple and having us be a part of their special day.
We asked Emily & Victor a few questions shortly after their wedding and we are going to include a few quotes from them to help us tell the story of their wedding day on our blog. It's something new we have wanted to try and we hope you all enjoy this new addition.

"I didn't originally want to do a first look but I'm glad we did. It was great to have a special moment with just the two of us."- Emily
"It was nice having a private moment and it helped us realize we should appreciate some private time together throughout the reception as well."- Victor
"I think it's easy to get caught up in everything that's happening so it's great to have some time to take everything in."- Emily
"Our wedding party was great and happily stuck it out in the cold weather."- Emily
"My favorite was when we lit the Chinese lantern. We loved looking at the stars while we were waiting for the lantern to fill."- Victor
"Even though it started to get really cold, I think it was definitely worth it!"- Emily
"I didn't realize everyone was going to be standing up watching us and my veil was so long that every time we started to turn we would get wrapped in it!"- Emily
"Everyone seemed to dance most of the night, which was awesome!"- Victor
