Katie and Roy :: Gainesville, VA Wedding
The day Katie and I met in person to discuss her vision for wedding photography, I knew we would be a good match--not only in terms of style, but also in terms of organization! Katie was on top of her game! She had questions answered before I asked them, lists made before I needed them and a very clear picture of how she wanted her wedding day to look. She was calm, cool and collected! When the wedding day arrived I sensed no nervousness, no stress, just love--from their families and their friends and best of all, love between Katie and her groom, Roy! And this amazing group of supportive people made me feel welcome and at ease. I was absolutely honored to be a part of this special wedding day and I'm happy now to share with you a few of my favorite photos from the occasion.
Katie and Roy were married at Virginia Oaks Country Club. This venue is right in my back yard, but I had not been there prior to the wedding day. It's a beautiful location and we could not have asked for better weather, or a more inviting sky!
Katie's dress was timeless, with gorgeous beading. Her bouquet was full of colorful roses, and she carried her Grandmother's rosary around the base. It was a lovely touch!
Katie, you were so easy to photograph. Your fun loving attitude and inner beauty shine through in all of the photos!
The ceremony was held in front of the lake on the golf course. It was a gorgeous setting!
Katie and Roy's friendship was so evident to me. They are definitely very in love and have a great chemistry. They are fun and so sweet to one another!
This wedding party was wonderful! They were so great to work with!
The first dance was just incredibly sweet. Despite some issues with getting their song playing, Katie and Roy were just totally into each other. I loved every single photo from that dance!
The whole reception was full of dancing and laughing and hugging. It was an absolute blast. I honestly had a hard time not putting down my camera and just joining in the fun!
Katie dancing with her Grandpa...FANTASTIC!
Katie's family has a tradition. Everyone gathers in a circle around the bride and groom and sings, "Let Me Call You Sweetheart." It was adorable!
I'll end with where the evening ended--saying goodbye to Katie and Roy with a shower of bubbles!
Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your celebration! All my best to you...
