Winery at Bull Run Wedding | Julia + Sean


June 5, 2013

I don’t get the opportunity to shoot Monday weddings very often, but Julia and Sean’s Memorial day wedding was held on pretty much the PERFECT day for them. Sean recently graduated from West Point and both families have ties to the military. Their day was so heartfelt and full of love for these two…from the beginning of the day Julia got ready, until the very end of their fun dance party, John and I had so much fun with these two and their friends and family! They made us feel so welcome!

The day started with Julia getting dressed! Seriously, does she not have the most beautiful smile??

The toasts were the BEST! The best man had a flag flown over the state capitol in their honor! And the bridesmaids performed a song they wrote for Julia and Sean!
