Luis and Angela – Great Falls VA Engagement Photographer

“some day we’ll wake up
with thousands of pictures
65 years in this little house
i won’t trade for nothing, the life that we built
i’ll kiss you goodnight and say i love you still”

[…] this was such a special, unique day to get to be a part of. no big wedding party, no decked out venue… just a head-over-heels in love couple, their own back yard sanctuary, and all of their most favorite people in the world celebrating their happiness at joining their lives together. i loved every moment of their perfect day, rain and all! :) how many brides get to wear cute rain boots under their dress?! and thankfully, once we got back to their home to start photos, we didn’t see another drop of rain all evening, and the day even ended with the most gorgeous pink sunset! perfection :) angela’s daughter sabrina did her hair and makeup, and she did the most fantastic job! her mother-in-law was the master at bow tying :) love love love!they had the ceremony in their back yard, and there couldn’t have been a more perfect spot for these two to promise forever. can ya tell they were excited to officially be husband and wife? :) unknowingly, i even managed to coordinate perfectly with their wedding colors! ;) thank you both so much for allowing me to be a small part of such a special day! it was a complete honor!  Venue: The couples home, “Casa Alegre” Cake: Edibles Incredible Hotel: Hyatt Regency Reston Town Center Officiant: All Faith Weddings, Rev.
