Matt + Carrie | Virginia Wedding Photography

Matt and Carrie’s wedding day was one of the most relaxed I have ever experienced. There was definitely excitement and a few (happy) tears but everything came together perfectly and on time, the weather was gorgeous and there was no shortage of laughter and good times. Carrie looked absolutely stunning and the bridesmaids all looked perfect in sparkly champagne dresses that they had each chosen. Matt and his groomsmen looked handsome in gray suits and striped ties and the beautiful flowers in subtle shades of cream and purple pulled it all together. Iconic Prince Street in Old Town and The Carlyle Club provided classy backdrops for photos followed by a delicious dinner and dancing (to a live band no less!). The toasts from Carrie’s dad and sister and Matt’s brother were so genuine and meaningful.

The uniting of two families who have known each other for over 20 years is something very special and unique. One of the highlights for everyone I think was a photo of Matt and Carrie at their communion confirmation standing right next to each other when they were probably 6 or 7 years old. We were able to recreate it on the same steps outside the church. Who knew then that years later they would be standing next to each other as best friends, saying their vows of love and commitment at the same church with some of the same friends and families surrounding them. Wow! Such a beautiful moment. I was so honored to be a part of Matt and Carrie’s wonderful wedding and to witness the joining of these two lovely families. Thank you to all the awesome vendors who helped to make this day such a beautiful success! It was a privilege to work with all of them.
