A Garden Themed Bridal Shoot

  • Mandy's Bridals

it was just last month that we were shooting Jill’s Bridal session at the Farm.  It’s crazy how fast a YEAR can fly by!

I met Jess and Ken at Rebekah and Matt’s Wedding and my first thought was… “Well if they’re friends with Rebekah and Matt, they are probably awesome people!”… and I was right! We emailed back and forth and then set up a time to meet.  They came to my little office and we talked about everything under the sun…including their VA beach wedding that was coming up in June.   They booked and almost instantly, Rebekah messaged me exclaiming how excited she was that I was going to get to work with her amazing friends. You know, when your
