It was just a few shorts months ago that Kirsten contacted me about photographing her August Wedding. We first met at Starbucks in Charlottesville, Va and talked over coffee as she shared with me her wedding plans and dreams. We had an immediate connection and had a wonderful time discussing her wedding day and all about her fiance', Dan. Who is a pretty amazing guy, I might add!

Wedding Day quickly arrived and the ceremony took place at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Richmond, Va. The cathedral is amazing! The one word I can use to describe it is Majestic! It truly is an amazing place to get married and the be inside I was in Awe.... Everything about the ceremony was like a fairytale. Speaking of fairytale Kirsten and her dad had their Father-Daughter dance to Beauty and the Beast. It magically to watch.

The whole day was a dream. Even in the midst of the heat and humidity everyone took it in stride and made the best of it.  I don't think Kirsten and Dan even noticed as they were just thrilled to be finally married as they have been apart most of their relationship.

The reception took place on the grounds of the Willow Oaks Country Club in Richmond, Va. The staff was the best. I could not get over how friendly and helpful they were throughout the day. The food, the cake from Sweet SARAndipity and the whole night was hoppin' with the help of DJ Rodney!!! 

Thank you to both Kirsten and Dan and both of their families for being so wonderful and welcoming. It was a blessing to share such special day with each and every one of you!
