WOLF TRAP FARM WEDDING - MADALYN & BRIAN

I couldn't think of a better wedding to end the season with than Madalyn and Brian's located at Wolf Trap Farm in Gordonsville, Virginia! Talk about a BEAUTIFUL day surrounded by so much love and an abundance of support from all who attended! These two couldn't be more in love with every ounce of their wedding day showed it!

When I first arrived at the farm, I was greeted by the sweetest group of bridesmaids who made me feel right at home the minute I walked in! They were all so kind, so welcoming, and you could tell how much they adored Madalyn by the way they all interacted with her. I don't think I've heard so much laughter in one bridal suite before, so I knew I was in for a fun day! One of the sweetest moments of the girls getting dolled up was seeing Madalyn go to each one of them and make sure they felt their very best! She was helping them with their dresses, jewelry, and making sure their hair was perfect, which says a lot about the friend that she is. 

When it came time to take portraits of Brian & Madalyn, it was simply adorable to watch these two interact with each other. The way Brian looks at her, is how every girl wants a guy to look at them. He was kind, gentle, loving, and kept telling her how beautiful she looked, and she absolutely did! (Shout out to Anna Breeding for her hair & make up! www.annabreeding.com).  We couldn't have found a better time to take portraits! The sun was settling so perfectly in the background, and it turned out to be one of my favorite times with the bride & groom. 

Thank you Madalyn & Brian for letting me capture your gorgeous wedding day! Wishing you both a very happy, long marriage filled with laughter and love! 

 

CHEERS TO YOU!

REHOBOTH BEACH - TUDOR & TODD

What a way to end Summer of 2016 by traveling to a place where I have spent countless family vacations! Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has always played a special part in my childhood memories, and going back there this weekend was nothing short of amazing. My family rented out Tudor's beach house for many summers, and my brothers and I had the opportunity to get to know her and her son Keegan throughout those years. There was never a dull moment whenever we were all together, and they truly became a big part of our family traditions. 

It had been 20 years since I last saw Tudor and her contagious energy was all the same as I remembered. She and Todd we're so incredibly welcoming and truly wanted me to just relax and have a fun time, which says a lot about the people that they are. The vibe of the day was so positive, fun loving, relaxing, and completely entertaining. The amount of love that each guest brought to their wedding day was so special, and definitely didn't go unnoticed. Even though the weather decided to not cooperate during the ceremony, that didn't seem to put a damper in this couples spirits. The love that these two have for each other is so obvious, and I'm so grateful to them for welcoming me with open arms! 

Congratulations Tudor & Todd!
