Saturday, I was in flower + farm + sunset HEAVEN. You will see exactly why below. I don’t think I have ever seen so many flowers in one place!!! 🙂 The reason being is that Peter’s mom does this for a living and she is SUPER talented!!! I’m still in awe… I was also in awe over the time and creativity that was put into their ceremony/reception space. A lot was built by hand (like the dance floor, bench, refreshment bar, etc.)… I guess everyone is just super talented between Peter, Stephanie and their families! I may have to hire them to do my future wedding. 😉 Along with their creativity, I want Peter and Stephanie’s luck with gorgeous sunsets! If you remember their Culpeper, Virginia farm engagement session last year, they had an incredible sunset as well! It’s a photographer’s dream to catch that beautiful glowy light. They were extremely lucky Saturday between these rainy days we have been experiencing.
Peter and Stephanie’s wedding day was nothing short of amazing. I loved their fun spirits on the dance floor, especially when we got to a special performance by Peter and his crew. Believe me, they didn’t plan to do this until probably 30 minutes before it happened. Haha! During that time, I turned around to see everyone recording it … you all might be the next bit YouTube hit! 😉 Their special moments and details were distinctive and I hope these photos allow them to relive the essence of their wedding day over and over again.
CONGRATS Peter and Stephanie!!! I wish you two the absolute best during your marriage life together!!! I am incredibly honored to have been your wedding photographer. Enjoy seeing your day through my lens! xoxo!

The guys put on a show for Stephanie! Not to mention that it was a spontaneous dancing show and even better? It was to Taylor Swift’s “Shake it off”. Lol!

The ring bearer was trying to take off the garter! Lol!
