Joanna + Ethan
Sometimes it is great to escape the hustle + bustle of the city. As a wedding photographer in the DMV, I love venturing out into the more rustic Virginia area for some epic greenery and open fields for those incredible vows.
This wedding literally had be smiling ALL day. I had that like “that my face hurts I’ve been smiling so much” kind of feeling the entire day. You could just feel the love and support from every single person as the two vowed their love for each other outdoors at the beautiful Rock Hill Plantation in Stafford, VA .
The couple decided on a first look before the ceremony so that they could enjoy cocktail hour with their guests. (If you have been debating on doing a first look- definitely go for it!)
Joanna had each of her ladies choose their own dress in a shade of burgundy or eggplant purple. Florals + greenery accented the space and they had a live painter capturing their ceremony. Bonus- Joanna joined the Whomp-Stompers for some tunes during the reception and after a bubble exit, each guest was sent home with a precious succulent!
