I first worked with Holly and Chris on their engagement session. I remember walking around in Yorktown, learning about them from behind my lens. I discovered that Chris and Holly are passionate about feeding the hungry in developing countries (a cause close to my own heart), Holly also work with gender issues overseas, she is a kind, confident woman with an abundance of love and generosity. It quickly became clear that they are deeply caring individuals and completely devoted to one another as a couple. But Holly and Chris are in love with more than just each other; they’re head over heels for their beautiful children! As soon as I learned that, I sensed that their fall wedding would be about more than the two of them. I sensed that it would be about celebrating their family as a whole. 🙂
Fast forward to a beautiful, late October day. The weather was just perfect at the Bull Run Golf Club, with clear blue skies and verdant, rolling grounds. Sure enough, the bride and groom’s children were included every step of the way! Dressed in her flowing gown, Holly took extra time to help her daughter get ready before the ceremony. So beautiful and meaningful! And when the family hit the dance floor together at the reception, I couldn’t stop smiling! I watched with a full heart as Holly and Chris enjoyed everyone present to the fullest. This was a day about true, family love!
Back when we first met, Holly mentioned that the thing she and Chris enjoy most is watching their children experience new things. So how perfect that the kids were right there to witness the beginning of their mom and dad’s new adventure…the incredible adventure of becoming Husband and Wife! It was a true gift to see this beautiful family celebrating love, life and togetherness!
