A Science Museum of Virginia Wedding

  • Jeff + Julia

This wedding was such an amazing milestone for the Rice family. The 5th and final sibling was marrying the love of her life!! I have known the Rice family for years. Ever since I shared a house in college with Emily, I have loved getting to know the Rice family! Besides my parents, I don’t think I’ve ever seen daughters so in love with their dad and a family dynamic that is so close. I think that’s why I just adore them. Their love for one another reminds me so much of our own family… except their numbers are bigger! The Rice siblings consist of 4 sisters and 1 brother and now they are all married with 9 grandkids and two more on the way!!! Crazy right?! What a blessed family! I remember hearing about Emily’s older sister getting married while we were in college and how big of a deal that was! Emily and I would talk about our weddings and how amazing it would be to have husbands and enter that new season of life.

A Downtown Leesburg Engagement

  • Tony + Bryana | Engaged

forecast was rain-free… but it was going to be HOT. Really hot. Normally when there is a heat advisory, I will reschedule an engagement session but they had already taken off work and we had already planned out our schedule to travel up north for the day. Bokeh was at the sitter’s (Aka Grandma’s house) and so we decided to go for it. Tony and Bryana were amazing. They were such great sports and totally owned their shoot!!! They modeled like it was a beautiful 72 degrees with 0% humidity… even though that couldn’t have been further from our reality!

Doing Things Differently Has Its' Advantages

  • The Perks of a Friday Wedding

are a funny things. Sometimes traditions are started and no one knows why but we stick to them like glue because that’s just what you’re supposed to do!! Right?! Well, Michael and I did several untraditional things when we got married, one being that we had our wedding on a SUNDAY! Gasp! 4 yeas ago, there were a lot of people who had never heard of that before. Weddings are supposed to be on a Saturday, right? Not anymore! As a culture, we get so stuck in our ways but things are starting to change!!
