Orange, Virginia Wedding Photographer | Dan and Caitlin

Sometimes during a wedding there are these effortlessly beautiful, magic moments…where time seems to stop and I have to pinch myself because it doesn’t even seem real…In the middle of Dan and Caitlin’s ceremony, a light breeze started to blow through the trees and pink petals started to rain down on them just as they were about to be pronounced husband and wife. It was so beautiful and could not have been more incredible if they had planned it to happen…They kissed as the petals fell and their guests applauded as they made their way hand in hand back down the aisle with huge smiles on their faces. The pictures don’t do it justice. You absolutely need to watch the video by the groom’s sister and my incredibly talented friend, Jill + her husband Buddy, on her blog today too!

I’d been looking forward to celebrating with Dan and Caitlin on their wedding day for a long time…the small, intimate gathering of their closest friends and family at the Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast last weekend was perfect for them. It was the most beautiful, spring day and I could not be happier for these two! They fit together so perfectly and I’m so excited for them and their new life together as a married couple! Congratulations again, Dan and Caitlin! Enjoy my favorites from the day!

*And a huge thanks to my amazing second shooter, Brittany Claud!
