Chris and I enjoyed celebrating our nation’s birthday this weekend with Abby and Steve’s patriotic wedding. The weather cooperated, and it was surprisingly comfortable for July. (I think I have a habit of giving you a wedding-day weather report, but it really does set the scene sometimes.) Without further ado, here are a few of my favorites!
I started out by taking a few pictures of Abby getting ready with her girls at Abby’s house. Isn’t she gorgeous?
Take a closer look at her bouquet and you’ll see her dad’s dog tags:
And this is how the guys spent their time at the church before the ceremony:
The ceremony was held at Covenant Presbyterian Church.
Chris captured this moment during communion:
First kiss as Mr. & Mrs.!
Are you kidding me with this cuteness?! So happy and in love they can’t take their eyes off each other. Love it!
We had fun shooting the sword arch exit…
And then when we were going back inside for family photos, I grabbed this quick shot with the fun dramatic sky:
The reception was at Bristow Manor in the tent outside, which was all lit up inside with twinkle lights:
But before the reception, we took some time to do some portraits.
Sorry girls…Steve’s taken!
My view of the first dance:
And Chris’s view (love this one!):
And then everyone was out on the dance floor!
Even Grandma had to show off some moves…
I love the body language here. Abby’s all, “Yeah, that’s right…I’m your beautiful wife. Now kiss me!”
No full-on cake smooshing for these two, but Chris caught this one of Steve giving Abby just a little dab of icing on the nose.
And the sparkler exit!
Congratulations and best wishes, Steve and Abby! Chris and I enjoyed celebrating with you, and had a great time photographing your day! Hope you’re having a fabulous time on your honeymoon.
