Ali + GP | River Farm

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of photographing Ali and GP’s gorgeous wedding at River Farm in Alexandria. Their day was lovely and personal, and I was smitten with every perfect detail. I actually met Ali and GP a few months ago when I photographed their engagement session, and I knew then that their wedding was going to be amazing. They’re both so kind and easy going… and they’re incredibly easy to photograph! It was fun for me to reconnect with them on their wedding day surrounded by their family and friends.

Ali actually got ready at her parents’ home, and the setting was amazing! ¬†Ali was calm, gorgeous, and joyful all day… I almost could have photographed her with my eyes closed.

One of my favorite moments of the day was when Ali insisted on going into the barn (in her dress!) so that she could bring out her horse for a photo. Love it!

Before heading to the church, Ali actually changed into her grandmother’s wedding gown. This gown was worn by her grandmother, her mom, and all her mother’s sisters. Amazing! I love the tradition that Ali carried on as she walked down the aisle. The Washington Post is actually doing a story on the heirloom wedding gown, and I can’t wait to see the spread!

I’m pretty sure Ali is winking at her grandmother as she walks down the aisle.

GP was also looking quite handsome as well!

River Farm is just gorgeous, and it proved to be the perfect backdrop for all their lovely details.

After their first dance (and while their guests began to enjoy dinner) Ali changed back into her first dress, and she and GP met me outside for just a few more portraits. The light was incredible, and I loved getting a little more time with these two…

one more…
