My advice to anyone is to find your passion as a couple, share it and cherish it forever.
I really can't believe we're only a few days away from celebrating our first wedding anniversary! Matthew said last year that it felt like it took forever to get to our wedding day, and I on the other hand thought it flew by. Today I'm sharing our photos from our actual engagement in Paris captured by our amazing photographers Michael & Carina.
Rachel & Mike
This beautiful wedding day is finally on the blog today! I am beyond obsessed with all of the colors and I can't wait for you guys to see it! I've known Rachel for about 7 years, we met through friends and she is one of the sweetest people I know. When she and Mike asked me to be their wedding photographer I of course said yes, and couldn't wait for their special day! As you'll see below, they put so much time and effort into every detail ... and the FLOWERS! Omg they were absolutely gorgeous! Everything from the beautiful backdrop at Jubilee Farm, to the bridesmaids dresses and Rachel's stunning Essense of Australia gown, just had me speechless. I absolutely loved being a part of their special day and I am beyond thrilled for them. Mike and Rachel are so sweet together and they are both so deserving of every happiness that life has to offer! Revisit their engagement session and enjoy this beautiful soft palette, perfect for any wedding day!

Megan & Rocky
Megan & Rocky's wedding day was absolutely gorgeous. Perfect touches of blush and navy blue were mixed in throughout the day as well as some of the most stunning details and florals I have ever seen by Flowers by Lisa! I absolutely love working with her, she's such an amazing florist! The ladies getting ready location was the Westfields Marriott and it was perfect! The room was filled with natural light and we even did a lot of the bridal party pictures here as well. Ladies when you're planning your big day, don't forget the importance of having a room that has TONS of natural light. That's how we get these pictures!
Megan and Rocky both chose to do a reveal with her dad and his mom, and I just love moments like these. I'm secretly holding back tears and trying to maintain composure to take pictures! It gets me every single time! This wedding was so soft and romantic and Chantilly National Golf and Country Club, has the perfect backdrop for portraits. These two had one of the most fun bridal parties to date! The dance floor was packed all night long and they have such an amazing group of friends and family that love them. Megan & Rocky were such a joy to work with and I am so honored to have been a part of their wedding day! Check out their engagement session and enjoy this beautiful blush and navy blue wedding!
