Leslie & Bill – 06.20.09

It’s just a little past my bedtime, but I want to get images from Leslie and Bill’s wedding up asap! So I’m going to post the photos now and some quick words about the wedding, and I’ll fill in the rest tomorrow if needed.

Leslie and Bill were married on the day before the official start of summer at the beautiful Rust Manor in Leesburg. We weren’t quite sure what the weather would have in store for us, but it turned out to be a gorgeous day!

I love that while I was upstairs in the bridal suite with Leslie capturing this…(by the way, Leslie, you look AMAZING!)

Chris was right downstairs with the guys, capturing this…

And this! Does anyone know if rubbing a bald head really is good luck? I think it worked! The rain held off.

Since we weren’t at all sure what to expect weather-wise earlier in the day, the outdoor ceremony was moved indoors. Leslie’s dad walked her down the aisle through all of their friends and family, and then right up the grand staircase!

I actually loved the uniqueness of having the ceremony on the stairs. It’s always fun to shoot something different!

And it was easy to get a shot of so many people all at once where I was standing.

This is a random picture of Grace. 🙂

And these are obviously pictures of a really stunning couple!

While I was shooting some group portraits, Chris was on detail duty down in the tented reception area.

Leslie and Bill’s reception was the perfect way to kick off the summer.

And this was the perfect end to their wedding day!

Leslie and Bill, Chris and I are just so happy for you! We had a wonderful time spending the day with your family and friends and celebrating your marriage. We wish you both the very best!

    Looove your photos. The one by the big tree is perfect. Of course, having such a beautiful bride and handsome groom didn’t hurt either!
