The first wedding I shot last year was for my dear friends Peter & Kari. It was the PERFECT way for me to kick off my 2011 season, as it was a gorgeous outdoor event, held at the private residency of some family friends of their's, here in Virginia. It could not have been more perfect, or more perfectly suited for THEM. Kari wore her grandmother's wedding dress (which was also worn by her mother), and her great grandmother's veil. There were so many special and sentimental touches to the whole day. But enough talking about it! Why don't you just see for yourself. :)
Is this flower girl a CUTIE or what?!
Kari's mom MADE all of the jam that they gave away as favors!
One of my favorite processional images EVER:
As the sun went down, the party began! (And believe me, it was a kickin' dance partaaay :)
Was it not a truly stunning wedding? Peter and Kari worrrrked it for the camera SO well, and several of their portraits remain top favorites that I shot this year. It was just such a beautiful, fun wedding to be part of!
And in case you didn't see it, they were featured on Glamour & Grace's blog in November! :)
A huge thank you to Peter and Kari for being incredible friends, and having me alongside as such a special part of your big day. I wish much happiness on you as you approach your 1-year anniversary. :D
