Leslie and Stephen are one of the most sweet and kind couples I have photographed! Their winter wedding at St. Andrews Catholic Church and Charter Hall in Roanoke, Virginia was so elegant with colors of navy, gold, and pops of red. Their winter date was chosen so that Stephen’s best man and brother David could be present with military leave from his station overseas. During the ceremony, Friar Roger Lopez, a family friend, delivered a reflection and to conclude the nuptials, Stephen and Leslie ran through a cloud of bubbles blown by their guests into the Star Line Trolley. After some photographs around downtown Roanoke, everyone enjoyed the reception at Charter Hall at the top of the City Market Building. I fell in love with those gold sequin table runners and brilliant purple backlighting! The Jangling Reinharts band rocked the house and at the end of the night, Leslie and Stephen brought in a popcorn machine to enjoy their favorite snack with the guests!

These are two of the most wonderful human beings on the planet! I first met Nic in college and he has been such an amazing friend to me. Last year he met Crystal in West Chester, Pennsylvania while at a friend’s house. It was in downtown West Chester that they had their first date that ended up lasting for hours and hours! For their engagement session we started out on the patio of their first date spot so they could reminisce. Next, we walked around downtown and stopped in Carlino’s, a specialty italian grocery store, for a little shopping. The last stop was back at their home where they could play their favorite instruments and sing a few songs by the fireplace! I can’t wait for these two to get hitched!

What I loved about this session was the amount of laughter from the beginning to the end! I learned right away that Stacy and Andy have so much fun and couldn’t be more perfect together. It all started online and a first date was arranged at a middle point between Stacy’s home in Annapolis, Maryland and Andy’s home in Pennsylvania. The date went so well that shortly after Andy packed his bags and moved to Annapolis to be with Stacy and her two beautiful girls, Katelyn and Allison. Stacy and Andy love everything country and even have a farm and two horses. Their wedding will take place at the rustic Gun Club Pavilion at The Homestead Resort in the spring, the perfect venue for these two. For their engagement session, we walked around Stacy’s parents property, a place they spend a lot of time, especially in the summers. The girls even joined in for a few images!
