ST. STEPHEN the MARTYR CATHOLIC CHURCH | MIDDLEBURG UPPERVILLE VIRGINIA | BLACKTHORNE INN | LAURA & BRIAN

We ventured out early Saturday morning to the Groom’s Family home in the picturesque polo fields of Upperville, Virginia.
We were greeted by Brian’s brother’s and family dogs….and lots of them!
Any of you who know me, know that I was in Heaven at that point as I stood there surrounded by fur-babies. haha
Brian and his brother’s were so very awesome and for sure gave us our daily dose of laughter that morning.

From there we made our way to Laura’s Mother’s home in the quaint town of Middleburg, VA
We felt at home as soon as we walked through the door! Laura’s mother Lisa, her sister Joanna, and her aunt Lisa were simply wonderful to us!
Then there was sweet Laura, she was so much fun as she fluttered around showing me all of her special wedding day trinkets.
If only I had her energy!
Then the moment had come, it was time for her to put on her dress…
we all walked out of the room to return to find Laura standing there looking oh so elegant in her Enzoani  gown.
Such a touching moment to watch her little sister Joanna’s eyes fill with tears of joy.
Then of course it’s time to “strike a snapp-pose”, Laura nailed every single shot…ahhhh so much fun!

Before we knew it, it was time! Time to head to the church.
Off we went to a beautiful ceremony where Laura and Brian said I do among friends and family.
Laura and Brian’s pictures as a couple have a very special meaning behind the location….
this awesome bridge is the exact spot where Brian asked for Laura’s hand in marriage!!! How very cool is that?:)

We ended the evening with a first for us, Laura and Brian were surprised as the skies lit up with fabulous fireworks!
It truly was a day that will always live in our hearts.
We hope to continue our new friendship with Laura, Brian, and their Family!
Big Love & Hugs to you all
