A week ago I traveled to Burke, Virginia to attend and document my brother’s wedding. It’s been a while since I’ve photographed a wedding, I took a break from business to have three gorgeous children. Since things have gone full swing in the past year for me I felt pretty confident in my ability to capture the couple for their official wedding day portrait, and of course all of those sweet moments, friends, and family members at the reception.
My new sister-in-law is quite lovely, and I mean that in every way possible. She is lovely right down to the bone. I am happy that they found each other and I am happy that I get to know them.
The small justice of the peace ceremony occurred at the Woods Community Center in Burke, an old house with a bit of history to it. As it turns out the Woods Community Center is also known as the Coffer House, and is a nineteenth century home that belonged to several prominent Virginian families. The bride’s family lives in the Burke area and she loves history, so it seemed a natural fit.
The wedding was more party than ceremony, and a fabulous party it was. Lots of family members, a handful of friends, and just enough kids running around to keep everyone laughing at their silliness.
It was a pretty great evening to gain a new sister.
