Jennifer and Kevin took advantage of a lovely January afternoon for their historic wedding in Smithfield, Virginia. Why historic? Well, they exchanged vows inside St Luke’s Church, the oldest surviving brick church of the original thirteen colonies. Historic enough for ya’? :p
Home of the oldest Gothic architecture in America, “Historic St. Luke’s Church has persevered through war, destruction, misuse and abandonment, witnessing the great events of our nation’s history. Within its walls, echoes can still be heard of our Founding Fathers who first established a foothold in America in 1607. This house of worship welcomed New World colonists, Revolutionary War and Confederate soldiers down through the ages. Spared by time and the hands of men, this ancient church, in spite of the vicissitudes of history, has been a place of worship, refuge and ceremony.” [src]
Four hundred years later, Jennifer and Kevin called together their closest friends and family to celebrate one of the most important days in the history of their own lives. Shortly after, the celebration moved to another historic local landmark, the Planters Club of Suffolk, where the early January dusk quietly descended upon the waterfront countryside.
Thanks to everyone who made it such a special day.
