They actually first noticed each other when they were in 2nd grade. Unbeknowst to the other, they both had a crush on each other; perhaps their first real crush their 7-year-old selves had ever had. It wasn’t until they were in their late teens, however, that Spencer decided to reconnect with Victoria by sending her a Facebook message and asking her to accompany him as his date to his military ball. They both really hit it off that evening and soon realized that they had a lot in common… and those feelings from their childhood years just might be resurfacing. A year later, Spencer surprised Victoria with an evening at Great Falls, and got down on one knee overlooking the waterfall and asked Victoria to marry him. The following Spring, they celebrated with their closest family and friends through a beautifully traditional, classic wedding. Victoria and Spencer, your wedding day was the epitome of class and elegance, and I loved getting to be a part of and a witness to the beginning of a holy and sacred marriage. I can’t wait to have dinner with you two soon, and I hope you love and cherish these images for years to come! Xoxo
