Belle Haven Country Club | Julie + Davis

You know how much I adore rainy wedding days! Julie and Davis’ wedding fell on one of the few days in my memory that rained non-stop without a break all day long. And it was so much fun to celebrate with these two because the weather didn’t change a single part of our plan! We captured so many lovely images outside of both the ceremony and reception, and these two even braved the rainy streets of Old Town Alexandria for some of my favorite wedding portraits to date. It was amazing!

From the first moment that I met both Julie and Davis, I knew that their wedding day was going to be amazing. They are both incredibly sweet and laid back, and they interact easily in front of the camera. While the weather could have brought with it a great deal of stress and frustration, Julie and Davis were both just excited to get MARRIED. They were full of love and joy all day long, and that came through in all the photos! You can’t predict or control the weather, but you always have the choice to let go and enjoy your wedding day. It makes me so happy when couples are able to do just that! Julie and Davis’s amazing celebration could not have been more fun!

You guys. I was being serious about the rain– it never stopped! I can’t tell you how excited I was when these two decided to brave the streets of Alexandria for a few photos. We were probably outside for less than five minutes, but that was plenty of time to grab some of my favorite rainy day portraits!

Belle Haven looks lovely regardless of the weather. I think the rain made the inside look even more cozy!
