The Irish Wedding | Virginia Wedding Photographer

  • Patrick + Kimberly

ago, I was planning to meet Kim and Patrick for the first time.  They thought it would be nice to meet at the Cheesecake Factory and of course, I thought that was an awesome idea! …. and evidently so did Michael… because he joined us!

Well, I forgot about it until yesterday when my friend Amanda wrote on my FB wall and said “Oh hey, did you know your honeymoon is in The Knot?”.  WHAT?!! I was both confused and so excited at the same time!!
