I walked through the church doors and felt like I was walking back in time. The green tiled foyer, the cathedral ceilings, the mauve sanctuary pews… I grew up in this church, shot my first ever wedding here, and was now getting ready to witness an amazing Christian couple make things official and get MARRIED here. Ahhh! Dyanna & Brian’s big day was one I was looking forward to for months. I was so flattered that Dyanna contacted me and wanted to have me shoot her wedding. Her bright and joyful personality was so “on brand” with my style!! I knew she was going to have such a beautiful wedding day and I couldn’t wait to capture it. As Dyanna was getting ready, I asked her if it just felt unreal… after years of waiting and it finally being the morning of her wedding. And she just kept saying, “God, You are so faithful.” It was such a huge testimony to me and everyone around her that she was praising the Lord for bringing her here and for everything He had done and how He had fulfilled His promises to her. Moments like that are what make my job so worth the long hours and stressful days! It was such an amazing thing to witness Brian and Dyanna’s wedding day. Oh, and the gorgeous navy & coral color scheme didn’t hurt either!!! :) Their Waterford Springfield wedding reception was classic and elegant, and every single one of their guests had so much fun. Dyanna and Brian, thank you SO much for being such a sweet couple and for including me in your wedding day! I hope you love your wedding photos!!
Loved the colors of the bridesmaids’ bouquets!
She was just beaming with happiness!!!
Oh girl… you are SO beautiful!
What a gorgeous bride!!
We recreated this shot to look like one from Dyanna’s mother’s own wedding day… such a special moment.
Tears of joy…
And then began the bridal portraits… Dyanna is a natural! Just stunning!!
Brian’s groomsmen and pastor took a moment to pray over him before the ceremony… love this.
They had their ceremony at Christ Chapel of Woodbridge!
Loved the uplighting!!
Bridal party portrait time! I loved shooting under this overhang!
Dyanna and her girls… they were so full of laughter the entire day!
Bride and groom portraits with these two were so much fun. They were so into each other and I barely had to pose them… it was just the sweetest thing.
Then it was time to party!!
Dyanna and her dad had the BEST dance prepared! Haha!!
They’re truly one another’s best friend…
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Citizen!!!
