hillary + matt | merriweather manor

I first met Hillary for a glass of wine here in Warrenton about a year ago.  We met to discuss her wedding, but our conversation covered so much more than that.  I remember leaving the meeting feeling like I’d just left a night out with an old friend!  And that’s just how it is with Hillary.  She has this amazing ability to make everyone feel like an old friend.  It’s such a gift.  And it’s not hard to see why Matt loves her so much!

On Saturday, I had the privilege of photographing Hillary and Matt’s gorgeous wedding at Merriweather Manor.  The weather was unreal, and Hillary and Matt were surrounded but the most amazing group of family and friends.  I also don’t think I’ve ever been around a funnier couple.  Seriously.  I feel like I was smiling and laughing the entire evening!  Hillary and Matt’s  celebration was such a reflection of their personalities.  Every detail complimented who they are… It was just perfect.

It was hard for me to narrow down the images, but here are just a few that caught my eye…

Hillary, you’re gorgeous!

Jerry’s Flowers & Gifts did such an amazing job on the flowers!

Matt was looking pretty handsome too.

Married!

The light after the ceremony was incredible!

LOVE.

Instead of traditional wedding cake, Hillary and Matt brought in a Donut stand.  Seriously?!  Best. Idea. Ever.

one more…

Hillary and Matt: I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to capture your wedding day.  What a glorious celebration!  I hope you both are enjoying your honeymoon!
