Do you remember Douglas and Marie from their engagement session last fall? Well, their big day finally arrived and they were married Saturday, June 23 at the gorgeous Plantation on Sunnybrook in Roanoke. It was my first wedding at the Plantation and oh my goodness...I fell in love with the place and hope I get to go back very soon!
After Marie and Doug booked their wedding with me, they had a change of date and venue. I will never forget when Maire contacted me about the change, she said, "Is this going to work for you, because I HAVE to have you as my wedding photographer?" I knew right then and there that they were MY perfect couple and that I would do anything possible to make the change work!
The day couldn't have been more beautiful. Only once right at ceremony time was there ever a threat of rain (I'm not gonna lie there were a few sprinkles), and just about when it was time for Marie to walk down the aisle, the clouds started to lift and the beautiful blue sky appeared! The reactions from Douglas, Brooklyn, and Landon when they saw Marie were priceless and had just about everyone in tears!
Marie and Doug, thank you so very, very much for letting me share in such a special day! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!
Grant, you never disappoint with the special photos you get with the guys before the ceremony!
The bridal suite at the Plantation was on point and Marie's details were so beautiful!
I want to live here!!!!
This was in the a.m. and you can see from the following photos how it is starting to cloud up nearing ceremony time.
And this is right at ceremony time with threatening clouds...it was sprinkling rain at this point.
OH MY WORD!! I couldn't hold back the tears!!
and BAM....blue skies!
They almost made it without smearing it on each other's faces. haha
These two have some serious moves!!
Doug and Maire, I wish you all the happiness in the world! It was a pleasure to work with you
and capture memories that I hope you will cherish for a lifetime!
Thanks so much for trusting me! Love you guys!!
