Leesburg Virginia Wedding Photographer Morven Park
Whenever I’ve met Patti, she’s been quick to laugh and smile. Leading up to her wedding wasn’t much different, but on that day as soon as her dress was fastened and her veil clipped in there was a change. Nervousness set in just a bit as everything came together and as she anticipated her walk to meet her groom. Everything was done and she just had to wait for the ceremony to begin.
George is much the same. He lights up around Patti and isn’t afraid to let her know he loves her. Their friends will all claim that they are “the one” for each other. I didn’t see nerves from George leading up to the ceremony, but he also kept himself busy with last minute decorating and organization and problem solving.
When Patti met George at the end of the aisle, she took his hand. With eyes focused on each other, they read the vows they each had written for the other – funny, tender, romantic, and heartfelt. They made each other laugh and any nervousness vanished like it had never even been.
After the ceremony, we were blessed with the gift of time and got to explore then extensive grounds of Morven Park for their portraits. It’s one of the most scenic and unique venues around, and it’s just perfect for wedding photos! Just look at some of those old carriages that lined their reception space! Patti and George, I wish you nothing but the best, and hope you enjoy some of the highlights from your wedding day!
George’s good friend does woodworking, so as part of his toast to Patti and George he brought in two halves of a heart that he glued together and told a really touching story about the wood and coming together and how if the wood heart ever breaks that it won’t be where it was joined and that where it was joined would be its strongest part actually. I’m totally not doing his story justice, but it was one of the nicest things I’ve heard at a wedding!
