Jerome and Karissa’s wedding ceremony took place Saturday, October 11 on a beautiful family farm in Palmyra, about 20 miles southeast of Charlottesville. Karissa spent most of the early afternoon getting ready inside, while Jerome and his buds went four wheeling all over the property.
Jerome and Karissa had a simple ceremony shared with their family and closest friends. At one point in the afternoon, a team of thoroughbred horses curiously gaited by to watch the family portraits taking place. I don’t know who was more excited, the guests or the horses!
After the ceremony at the farm, everyone got in their vehicles and proceeded to the Sheraton in Richmond. Jason and I met up with photographer Rae Czekanski, who was photographing all of the wedding details there. Jerome and Karissa shared a lovely first dance, followed by an incredibly delicious dinner. The evening ended with karoake sung by Jerome and his best friend. Wow. Their karaoke numbers drew many delighted and curious hotel guests to the reception area. What a fun day!
