I met Shannon and Ryan at their home in VA for the pair’s very intimate, low key wedding. Koa, their black lab, watched as the girls got their hair and make-up done, while the guys learned how to tie a Windsor knot. We then all headed over to Memorial Church on Fort Myer for the ceremony and portraits in the mist. (Btw… thank you to the awesome wedding party for posing in the mist for 30 minutes!) And then it was back to the house for delicious bbq foods, wine and cupcakes. What I love most about these small events is getting to know each and every family member and friend in attendance, hearing their stories and leaving the event feeling like I have 30 new friends.
