Amelia & Kris's Intimate Engagement at Oatlands

I’ve known Amelia since high school and could not have been happier that she called me right after she got engaged so that I could take their photos for them. They even drove down from Pittsburgh, PA to Virginia in order to have their session at the gorgeous Oatlands plantation. It was my first time really getting to know Kris and I couldn’t have been happier with the match. Their silliness and youthful hearts complement each other perfectly and their joy and love overflow when they’re near each other. Check out their photos below especially the ones with her gorgeous vintage style engagement ring!

Angela and Brad's Romantic Vineyard Wedding

I just love low key, romantic weddings. Angela and Brad picked a beautiful new venue, Faithbrooke Barn and Vineyards, to celebrate their vows and it couldn’t have been more fun and filled with love. Angela’s uncle married the two under an arbor overlooking the vines and the celebration carried on into the stunning new barn made just for events. The bridal party was full of enthusiastic members who insisted on tossing our bride in the air for good luck. The food was great & the speeches sweet & heartfelt before I was able to scoop up the couple for some beautiful sunset photos with the Blue Ridge Mountains behind them. After that, I was in awe of how many people at this wedding could cut a rug! The dancing was nonstop, save for a brief song where Brad and his brothers serenaded Angela with an amazing rendition of Righteous Brothers “That Loving Feeling”.

Bridget and Brendan's Gorgeous St. Aloysius Church Wedding

Bridget and Brendan celebrated their wedding in perfect Washington, D.C. fashion. Going back to Brendan’s Gonzaga roots, they chose to get married in the gorgeous St. Aloysius Church. Bridget wore a glamorous dress that gave a nod to the classic ladies of Washington and also had a beautiful tartan scarf honoring her family’s heritage. The reception brought everyone to Georgetown’s bustling waterfront for dinner and dancing at a city mainstay, Sequoia. The simple, romantic floral decoration complimented the bright and airy space for dinner and once the sun went down, the Rita’s Ice stand came out to keep the party animals cool while they danced the night away to the sounds of one of my favorite bands, D.C. Fusion.
