The wedding of Jennie Bellhouse (24 and in events and development) and Patrick Stroup (33 and in sales) took us back to our school days. The couple hosted their reception at Waterford Old School, a historic schoolhouse in Waterford, Virginia. Fittingly, the couple hired a school bus to transport guests from the ceremony to the reception. To throw in a bit of geography, Jennie and Patrick had their guests sign a world map instead of a traditional guest book. And there was no lack of literature at the wedding: centerpieces at the reception were made up of roses and hypericum displayed on stacks of vintage hardcover books. These flower arrangements echoed Jennie's lush bouquet, which was made up of Sahara roses, Vendela roses, hypericum berries, pink astilbes, ferns and eucalyptus. There was no shortage of details at this playful fall wedding. As Jennie and Patrick exited John Wesley Church in Waterford, Virginia, after their ceremony, guests blew bubbles at them. And at the reception, the couple set up a fun candy bar that they called the "tuck shop." See all the great details, captured by Photo by Ganon, below.

Jennie wore a strapless, A-line Allure Romance gown in ivory lace that featured beading in the bodice and a sweetheart neckline.
The bridesmaids wore strapless, floor-length dresses in deep purple that were perfect for the fall weather and the rustic setting.
Patrick dressed in a gray tuxedo with a light gold vest and a striped black, ivory and gray tie.
