Leesburg Virginia Wedding Photographer Lansdowne Resort
They were up on the 7th floor. Separated by a handful of doors, each surrounded by friends and family. Kathleen sat calmly as hair and makeup artists worked aroud her. Zach chatted up everyone in the room as he waited to hear “it’s time.” As Kathleen stepped into her dress and had her veil fastened, Zach’s family adjusted his tie and pinned on his boutonniere.
Seven floors below us, white chairs were set in rows and a custom made runner marking the special date was unfurled down the aisle. The music cued up, doors opened for Kathleen and her dad to begin walking, and Zach leaned forward to catch a better glimpse of his stunning bride.
Kathleen and Zach were married at Lansdowne Resort overlooking the Potomac River. Smiles, laughs, and a few tears marked a night of big celebrations. I was honored to work with the newlyweds, and enjoy a few highlights from their wedding day!
I’ll end with the one. I didn’t think too much of it when I took it. Just a photo of two people watching the reception action from the side of the dance floor. But when I really looked at it as I was editing, there was something about it that just grabbed me. I love the generations – old and young. The way they’re both just sitting in the same way that they can, and the little boy’s gaze up to Kathleen’s grandfather. So classic and reverent looking. This one just gets me!
