Debbie & Adam – 10.08.11

I read a lot of wedding blog posts because I do have several friends in the wedding industry that I like to keep up with, and we all quite often say the same thing: “I have the BEST clients.” But it’s really true, I do! Chris and I are so fortunate to meet such wonderful couples, and to be brought into the folds of their lives for such a special occasion. When I stop and think about the impact of what we do, it sort of blows me away. Debbie and Adam were no exception when it comes to amazing clients. They are two of the sweetest people, and it was an absolute joy to witness their wedding and the celebration.

I started out the day by joining Debbie and her bridesmaids at the Marriott at Fair Oaks where they were getting ready.

The Bride To Be before the dress (cute tank top!) and right after.

Lots of smiles while getting dressed. No nerves here! Or at least they were happy nerves. 😉

I’m still speechless! Debbie, I’m sure every single person told you so on Saturday, but I’m going to say it one more time: you’re stunning.

Meanwhile…

Just minutes before we left for the church (P.S. Debbie, I love your laugh!):

Note: due to a minor snag, we were unable to take this car to the ceremony, but it still made for a great photo op, right?

I LOVE this photo that Chris took right before Debbie and her father walked down the aisle.

St. Timothy in Chantilly, Virginia.

Mr. & Mrs.!

Post-ceremony portraits:

One of my most favorite groomsmen shots, ever. I’m also just really happy that they didn’t fall in the creek.

Just so lovely!

A couple that has a well-planned wedding day schedule has time for a quick visit to Starbucks before the reception! And since the coffeehouse was an important part of Debbie and Adam’s dating history (with multiple visits per weekend in the early days of dating), obviously we had to take a photo or two.

Cutest couple in line at a Starbucks, ever.

And then it was back to the Marriott at Fair Oaks for the reception!

I can almost smell these tasty cupcakes courtesy of Georgetown Cupcakes just by looking at the photo.

I adore both of these first dance photos that Chris took. ADORE.

The Beltway Rockers, keeping the dance floor busy:

And we brought the facebooth, which clearly gets a thumbs-up!

“You must be *this* tall to use the facebooth…”

Cute prop, courtesy of Debbie and Adam.

And I’ll wrap it up with a delicious ring shot! (Full disclosure: we totally ate these after the shot. The cupcakes, not the rings.)

Debbie and Adam, you are both so sweet and it has been such a pleasure working with you and getting to know you. Thank you for sharing your day with us – Chris and I had a blast on Saturday, and we wish you all the best! Congratulations!

    …and this is why I don’t bother trying to shoot weddings…..simply magnificent pictures.
