A and J contacted me last year and I still remember so clearly the first day we met... Our meeting was at a brewery in a town where I have never been before! 1) that pub IS awesome, 2) please, bring me to all new places!, 3) I just fell in love with them, because, let's be honest, when a couple tells me: "You can take all the moody, black and white photos you want, we love them"... Well, I'M ALL IN!!! :) But also, I do remember a terrible rain that day!!
When I met A for the second time, we sat and talked for a little bit, she told me about their story and I still smile thinking how sweet they are. Plus she told me J was going to wear a kilt... so at that point I was ALL-ALL IN!!
On their wedding day, the sun was shining. I took a tour of the city before going to the location. I have to say that Fredericksburg got me hooked! It might have been the love for A+J, or the sun, but I loved that town and that day even more!
Once at the location, I found a beautiful and pretty relaxed bride and a groom incredibly anxious to meet his better half! It was a super emotional wedding, full of love and hugs and kisses and happy tears (I cried too during speeches, but it's all good!)
Now I'll let you enjoy the images I created to tell their story. Turn on the music if you would like!
