I first got to know Libby and Will earlier this year, when I had the pleasure of working on their engagement session back in March. From the first, it was clear how much these two share, and how perfect they are together! We spent a wonderful afternoon in downtown Williamsburg, and I loved getting to meet their Brittany Spaniel, Penny, such an adorable and photogenic pup! I left that engagement session feeling so excited for their July wedding…and it finally arrived! The day was every bit as wonderful as I knew it would be!
Libby and Will both come from large and loving families, to whom they are deeply devoted. Their ceremony and reception took place at Saint Bede Catholic Church in Williamsburg, VA and of the 200 guests, at least 180 were family!! It was such a joy to see how excited all of their loved ones were for them! Libby and Will also happen to both be the first sibling in each of their families to tie the knot…and their parents on both sides were absolutely ecstatic! During the ceremony, Libby’s father couldn’t hold back his emotion as his daughter walked down the aisle. So beautiful to see! But the bride’s dad wasn’t the only one with tears in his eyes…as Libby made her way to the altar, Will cried tears of joy as well. Beautiful! I love emotional weddings so much, and always feel privileged to be part of such an important moment in two peoples’ lives.
As they left the altar hand-in-hand, I remembered back to that first spring afternoon I spent with Libby and Will. The adorable, giggly couple that I first knew looked just as sweet…but now they were husband and wife! I wish them so much joy on the journey ahead. They don’t need any extra luck, they’ve got that in spades already! Their future is bright indeed, and I know that their dreams will continue to come true! Enjoy this sneak peek of their day.
Thank Raygan Michelle for shooting this wedding with me and for being wonderful to work with!
