It's hard to describe the feeling when you meet two people for coffee and, after 5 minutes, you just KNOW exactly how their wedding will look! Molly and Jake described their wedding vision as 'classic elegance' and boy did they attain it! After months of planning, Molly & Jake tied the knot on October 28th. The weather could not have been more perfect and the wedding hit peak fall colors for the trees!
Molly started the day at her parents home in Vienna, right down the street from St. Mark's where the two would tie the knot officially. There is something so cozy about getting ready in your childhood home. The familiarity made the bride feel at ease. She even did a first look with her dad in the back yard! Molly and Jake left the church to a bubble exit and drove down the road to Westwood Country Club. Molly has known the folks here since she was four! The whole day was filled with personal details and close friends that made their day a perfect Virginia fall wedding.
I also feel the need to add a small personal note here about how truly welcomed & valued both families made me feel! From the minute we met to this very day, Molly and Jake have been my number one fans and I am so so thankful that they came into my life. I am truly blessed to have clients like these. It was hard for me to choose but here are some of my favorite shots from the day!
