Stephanie and Matthew are two of the sweetest, FUNNIEST people I have ever met! It was such a blast working with them. Their sense of humor had me laughing through every meeting, session, and even on their wedding day. We had so much fun! Their day was certainly full of laughs but also full of so much love and joy. Their family and friends were so wonderful and clearly love them so much. The day and this couple could not be more perfect! Their wedding had the perfect backdrop for a fall wedding at Stonewall Golf Club. The leaves were at their peak and were absolutely gorgeous! The day was perfectly styled to reflect the warmth and beauty of fall!
I love that Stephanie and Matthew chose to do a first look. They were so excited to see each other. It also gave us a lot of time to do some portraits of the two of them as well as the bridal party and family prior to the ceremony.
We made sure to take a very chilly golf cart ride to hole 15, which overlooks Lake Manassas, for some portraits. It was totally worth enduring the wind chill!
Time to get married!!!
Matthew’s sister, Amanda sang the most beautiful song, but when she began singing, Christine, Stephanie’s sister just couldn’t hold back the tears. It was such a beautiful moment.
After the ceremony, we took some time to do more portraits by a beautiful bridge on the other side of the golf course. It called for, yet again, another chilly ride in the golf cart but it was so so so worth it!!!
So, when I saw this photo of Stephanie and Matthew dancing, that song from Cinderella popped into my head, “So This is Love!” Folks, this is what love looks like!
Congratulations, Stephanie and Matthew! What an amazing day this was and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!!! May your laughter and love carry you through this crazy world as you take it on together. Love you both bunches!!!
