Sunset Crest Manor Wedding | Chantilly VA | Gilroy Photography

Melissa and Peter’s Wedding at Sunset Crest Manor, in Chantilly, Virginia was a perfect mixture of casual elegance and the beautiful Virginia countryside. The gorgeous Sunset Crest Manor with it’s 82 acres was the perfect setting for their wedding. The couple’s First Look was on the garden walkway outside the barn. Melissa meandered down the winding pathway to tap her groom on the shoulder and it was a beautiful intimate moment.

There were so many special touches! The patio cocktail tables centerpieces were mason jars filled with delicate white tulips. The couples ceremony was held on the expansive patio at the crest of the hillside. Baby’s Breath gathered in ribbon decorated ceremony rows of gold Chiavari chairs. The wedding ceremony was held overlooking the breathtaking view from the atop the hill. Then there were the lovely sounds of the violin played by Melissa’s Aunt during the ceremony processional and recessional moments.

The first dance was held under the wagon wheel chandelier in the perfect rustic barn and the dance floor was full, as the music rocked into the night! At the end of the night the quests gathered full of laughter and excitement as they gave the couple a grand sparkler send off!

Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax Virginia Wedding Photographer

I loved everything about Jennifer and William’s Spring Wedding at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fairfax, Virginia. It was so gorgeous with a merlot red and gold color theme. The groom wore his dress marine corps military uniform and the bride’s wedding gown was embellished with a flowing red sash. The couple’s First Look was so intimate in the lovely courtyard as Jen tapped William on the shoulder. A sweet moment happened during the wedding ceremony when the bride and groom gave their mother’s each a single yellow rose in honor of Mother’s Day!

Craig + Michele | Morais Vineyard | Warrenton Virginia Wedding Photographer

Craig and Michele’s Morais Vineyard wedding was amazing at one of the most beautiful venues just outside of Warrenton, Virginia! I fell in love with the amazing architecture and beauty of the gorgeous Morais Vineyard venue. What a perfect setting for your special Wedding Day! The bride’s bouquet was a delightful mix of rich lavender and beautiful bright yellow sunflowers. There was an afternoon spring rain during the ceremony which miraculously lifted during the recessional as the couple stepped outside as Mr. and Mrs.! Their intimate ceremony was held in the Chapel which was full of children and laughter!

My first wedding of the year was full of joy at the beautiful Morais Vineyard! Craig and Michele are such a fun and loving couple!
