Alexis & Scott – 5.21.11

There may have been a little something else in the news about 5.21.11, but for Chris and me it was Alexis and Scott’s wedding day at Raspberry Plain in Leesburg, VA, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day! And I pretty much want to jump right into the photos just to show you how fun and fantastic the day was. Two of the sweetest people:

And the sweetest bunch of girls. Hi girls!

Seeing the flowers for the first time (she loves them!):

And for good reason – the flowers were beautiful!

Grandmother’s necklace, which was later wrapped around the bouquet:

I have the cooooooooolest clients!

I love this image that Chris took of Scott’s parents just before the ceremony. How cute is the MOG taking a little peek into the ceremony site?!


Lots of smiles, laughs and a few tears during the ceremony:

But mostly big smiles!

Okay, so if you know me well, you’ll realize that me getting out into the middle of this field was kind of a big deal. I think my camera instantly makes me very brave, because I’ll do pretty much anything to get a good shot. And if I wasn’t shooting, there’s usually no way I would wander into a field of tall grasses like this! Hellooooooo bugs and worst of all, ticks! I get goosebumps thinking about it.

But going out into the field was SO WORTH IT. I mean, seriously:

Love all of the fun, bright-colored details at the reception:

Photo of the new Mr. & Mrs. taken by Chris (it almost rhymes)!

Um, so yeah…this next photo that Chris took of the first dance is one of my all-time favorite images of his. Yes, I love it THAT much!

We loved the best man’s fun toast and the reactions to it:

Really sweet maid of honor toast moment:

Really proud parents:

And then it’s time to get down!

We set up the facebooth again, and again it was a big hit! There were even bubbles that made an appearance! So fun:

Hey, look! It’s Lisa, of Lisa & Dan!

Love it!

LOVE this, so much!

Best wishes and congratulations, Alexis and Scott! I can’t think of a better way to have spent 5.21.11. 🙂 We loved celebrating with you, and had such a fun time photographing you and your guests! Wishing you both all the best!
