Tyler & Kimberly | Potomac Point Winery, Virginia Wedding Photographer

Tyler and Kimberly are truly best friends. In fact, they have known each other since they were kids! Basically dating their entire lives and FINALLLYYYYYY they got married last Thursday! I loved seeing their fun spirits during their day, from the prepping time to the reception. Sometimes plans don’t always work out but they really made the most of their day. I’m just thankful the weather held up so we were able to take portraits outside. God definitely answered my prayers … every mile of the way to the venue! 🙂

What caught me by surprise is how energized this crowd was for being a Thursday wedding!!! I have done Friday weddings before, but never on a weekday like Thursday. They partied until 11:30 p.m. celebrating this beautiful occasion! 🙂 Weekday weddings are becoming more and more popular. In fact, I have another weekday wedding tomorrow (Wednesday!). Cool to see some traditions thrown out the window and become uniquely them. Tyler and Kimberly have a sweet, young love and their wedding day was full of laughter! Their sense of humor is so effortless and fun from the vows they read during the ceremony to the cake cutting to the mother/son dance … I just loved seeing their fun spirits light up the room. Now they have a bright future ahead and I look forward to seeing where God takes their marriage!

Thank you Tyler and Kimberly for giving me the privilege of documenting this very much anticipated day!! Enjoy some of my personal favorites and have the best time in Jamaica! xoxo!
