Best Wedding Party Portraits from 2016 | Virginia Photographer

I had the honor of meeting so many friendly faces last year through my couples. Wedding parties vary in personalities, but when we come together to celebrate, there is one thing that is evident. JOY! You’ll see that as a common theme in the photos below. 😉 I love seeing the entire picture come together between the bridesmaid dresses, bouquets, boutonnieres, suits, ties, socks, hair styles, shoes and the little details. The coordination can be time-consuming, but fun!!

There are many ideas out there, especially on Pinterest! Who says you need to do things traditional nowadays? I see a lot of mix-matched dresses, whether that is through color or style, it’s an excellent way to add visual interest while still making it known who is a part of the wedding party. 🙂 I have brides who are venturing to J.Crew so the girls can wear their dresses for other occasions and even Rent the Runway for rental dresses! Endless ideas. 🙂 Check out some of my favorites below!!!

I love this idea! Attaching a jeweled initial on the bouquet to personalize it!
