If you know anything about what inspires me, getting to photograph in a quaint city, and a floral paradise in one day is a DREAM. I love the energy of cities like Alexandria that are just big enough to be a city, but have the character of a small town and I'm obsessed with being in nature. So Alexandria + River Farm (The American horticulture Society's headquarters) was hands down an amazing wedding day.
Not only did this wedding make me itch to photograph again in both fabulous places ( hint-hint ;) ), but it was the perfect example of how much more beautiful a wedding day is when you throw all your worries (like makeup or running late) out the window and just FEEL every moment of the day. Emily and Ryan were so joyous and emotional all throughout their gorgeous day and that makes me love the images so SO much more.
EMOTIONS guys, that's what a wedding day is all about. Emotions, love, and being together.
Also can we just talk about how Emily's smile is just a ray of sunshine?! I think that's all Ryan noticed during the day.
