Stephen & Becca | Bristow Manor, Virginia Wedding Photographer

These two should look familiar on the blog!! If you missed it the other day, Stephen and Becca’s darling engagement portraits were featured on the blog with many favorites! Today is no different. 🙂 Their joyous and oh-so-lovable personalities were evident last weekend as they promised their futures together. What an honor it was to be there by their sides and help them celebrate!

Fortunately for us, the anticipated rain on Saturday blew over, so we were able to enjoy the beautiful day! But for caution, they decided to host their wedding inside, which was smart due to the wind. It was a beautiful setup with the draping fabric across the ceiling and fairy lights so they couldn’t have gone wrong with outdoors or indoors. 🙂 It was sweet seeing Stephen’s reaction to Becca. I mean, she looked BEAUTIFUL after all!!! And actually, it wasn’t just his initial reaction in that made my heart swell, there were so many sincere little gestures that happened throughout the ceremony. Goodness, they are precious!!! As soon as they were pronounced as husband and wife, they were off to celebrate with their loved ones!

We ended up with the most gorgeous sunset! Going into the day with the expectation of rain, and then seeing the results of God’s blessing, made us soak in and appreciate the atmosphere. Plus, we had fun driving in golf carts around the property! Haha! After we were done taking photos, it was time to party!!! This group was full of enthusiasm and energy, as you will see below! 🙂 I loved running around the dance floor and spotting spontaneous, fun moves. One moment included a solo dance from the groom’s dad! He busted moves even I cannot pull off — so impressive! Haha! The night ended on a high note as Stephen and Becca said their farewells as they walked through the tunnel of sparklers. I could have easily continued photographing that night over and over again. 🙂 So happy for them!!!!

Thank you, Stephen and Becca, for asking me to be a part of this celebration! <3 I’m excited to see where your future takes you and will be thinking about you as you prepare for your big move! CONGRATS and enjoy some of my many favorites!!! XOXO!
