I had the honor of meeting Amanda and Joe last year at their engagement session at Libby Hill. They were so sweet and we hit it off immediately! We had a beautiful Fall day and I just knew then that their wedding this September was going to be amazing. And it was just that!
One thing that they and every East Coast wedding this past Labor Day weekend will probably remember is tracking Hurricane Hermine. Well, to our luck and amazement, Saturday morning came and the hurricane made a quick turn back towards the ocean. I was amazed at Amanda’s composure all day. She was calm and happy and just so ready to marry her best friend. Her friends told her jokes as little bands of rain danced around her outdoor ceremony space. As we waited, the bridal suite was filled with so much excitement and laughter. Then right as Amanda and her father walked down the aisle the rain disappeared and even a little bit of sun shined through.
They had an absolutely beautiful ceremony on the steps of the Virginia Cliffe Inn in Glen Allen, VA surrounded by their family and friends. After the ceremony there was plenty of corn hole playing, dancing, and celebrating. It was an honor to be a part of Amanda & Joe’s wedding celebration! Now please enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding day!
