Earlier this year I met up with Paula and Pete for their engagement session in DC – since then I’ve been looking forward to their wedding day at River Farm! Paula looked stunning in her gown and custom made bolero jacket… totally enjoyed having the opportunity to witness their I DO’s!
I love moments like this, when the bride is simply in her own world as she’s got ‘all hands on deck’ getting her into her dress…those moments that are simply hers…
The groom as he patiently waits for their first look!
Their special moment together… I love the photo of her mom just standing back taking it all in!
Paula….there is that look! 🙂
The back of her dress was just as beautiful as the front!
Even with a first look there is nothing like a groom seeing his bride walking towards him….
They were great as we headed down towards the river…and were able to grab some really pretty images with all the gardens…
As we were walking back up towards the cocktail hour this is what I saw… thank you Pete for jumping into the shrubs so I could get the image and Paula, thank you for the balancing act on the hill walking up!
After dinner a quick sunset photo with the beautiful skies over the Potomac.
A few behind the scene from Carissa!
Not sure where Pete was but we did sneak one in with the bride!
Paula and Pete, thank you for sharing your day! wishing you all the happiness!!
