Dalhousie Castle Wedding: Jada & Jon - Part II

Here's the second half of Jada & Jon's Scotland wedding, as promised. As I mentioned, there were only ten of us, the bride, groom and myself included, who attended this intimate destination wedding. As such, you'll see literally every guest (except me!) in the photos that follow.

After the ceremony, we retired to the library bar for some celebratory drinks before heading out into the fog for portraits.













It's a little bit hilarious how much Corona was consumed on this trip, despite being in Scotland. You can take the Texan out of Texas...











I couldn't ask for a better backdrop for portraits than a 13th century castle and the foggy green rolling hills we found in Midlothian, Scotland. I desperately wish we could have venues like this at home!



































After portraits, we headed back inside for the cake cutting. Jada's mom had brought along a cake cutter, but little did we know the bagpiper had other plans, accompanied by another speech.





Now that is a cake cutter. I want to say it's actually a Scottish Dirk, but I could be mixing up terms. Anyway, it's a heck of a big knife.











The piper offered some final words of wisdom and well wishes, and at that point I was relieved of my duties in order to enjoy a fantastic five course meal in the castle dungeon. Clearly I wasn't already being spoiled enough by being brought to Scotland and having the opportunity to photograph an unbelievably beautiful wedding. Thanks again to all of the Barnes/Graff crew!

I would just like to point out that in ALL of the cake cutting photos I am making funny faces trying not to laugh at the 3rd? 15 minute speech made by the bagpiper. This was too funny. Haha. Again, love all of the pictures :)

And yes, the amount of corona.....dear lord. Haha.
