Shanon & Peter – 05.02.09

On Saturday I joined one of my favorite photographers, Amy Martin, to photograph the will-the-rain-hold-off wedding of Shanon and Peter in Stafford, VA. And luckily, the rain did hold off and we had a great day! We started off at Shanon’s house for a few photos of the last getting-ready moments…



…and then we were off to the church!

Shanon’s daughter Chelsea was the maid of honor – how cute is she?!



The reception was held at the beautiful Potomac Point Winery in Stafford:

The flower arrangements in the ballroom were just exquisite:



I thought this was kind of neat – Shanon and Peter chose to use a coffee table book for their guestbook:

We spent some time on the grounds doing a few romantic portraits:



And then we came back to the winery for some group photos.

Okay, and one more fun one of just Peter and Shanon…

Laura, the event coordinator at Potomac Point, did such an amazing job of setting up this next shot of Shanon and Peter stomping grapes in front of all of their guests!


Chelsea gave one of THE best toasts I’ve ever heard. She was so cute and eloquent!

Congratulations and best wishes, Shanon and Peter! And Amy, it was so great to see you!

    Love these, Susan. That shot of the cake in the distance with the floral arrangement in the foreground is killer! (You are right–the flowers were exquisite!) Her daughter is adorable–and so brave to do a toast in front of that crowd. Speaking of brave–Shannon was quite brave to stomp grapes in her wedding gown! Looks like a great day.
