It’s snowing as I type these words. I’d say that is pretty appropriate considering the beauty that is about to grace this site. It’s time to celebrate Olivia & Daniel’s Christmas Wedding Day! I can’t wait for you to see. I think this one is the longest I have ever posted, but I just couldn’t share any less than these 300+ (?!) photos. Can I share with you about the day too? Keep reading. 🙂
One of my favorite moments of the entire day was watching Olivia read her letter from Daniel just moments before the ceremony. It was a priceless moment. She fought back the tears, but it was a tough battle. She was about to see him for the first time that day, walking down the aisle as his bride! I love how they shared this moment in such a meaningful way. This intentionality is truly something I saw them value throughout their day – meaningful moments. The day was filled with sweet conversations, kind touches, a first dance to an eternal kind of love song…everything was meaningful. They’d been looking forward to this day and it was finally here! Surrounded by their family and friends in this little church in Upperville, Virginia with snow creating the perfect backdrop – their dreams coming true.

I know I just mentioned the snow, but it’s worth another sentence or two. We had no clue if it’d stick around for this special day, but it sure did. Maybe it was just my dream to photograph this day in snow, but Olivia was such a good sport and quickly changed into her boots for epic husband and wife portraits. I could have edited them for hours seeking the perfect colors, but then I realized that there was already perfection in them – this beautiful couple so happy to be husband and wife. It isn’t every day that Virginia is blanketed in snow, but I thought it fit this December day perfectly. A little bit of Christmas and a lotta bit of love.
Congratulations Olivia & Daniel. Praying big blessings on you two as you celebrate your marriage.
