I'm a wife, an artist, and a lover of dogs, rock music, and abstract art. I'm a Virginia girl with equal love for California sun and New York grunge. 
I see the most beauty in imperfect things. Ripped jeans. Asymmetrical art. Vintage everything. And a photo with a little girt and grain. I love things that are rugged and little bit off the beaten path.

The Lorien Hotel Wedding, Alexandria Virginia, Lindsey & Carl

5/26/2016

Lindsey & Carl’s wedding at The Lorien Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia was absolutely beautiful. I’ll be honest, I was a “blue girl” growing up (not a fan of the color pink) but something in the wedding industry has changed my heart and yes, I adore pink. Something about it is classy and timeless! I was so excited to see Lindsey’s blush and gold details because I knew it was going to be stunning, AND IT WAS. Lindsey has an eye for beauty and you could tell with her wedding. Each bridesmaid was in a different shade of pink, and her florals – – ahhhh, such a beautiful palette of springtime pastels. My favorite part of the day was seeing Lindsey. I’ve known Lindsey since high school and being asked to shoot her wedding was an honor. She has always been so sweet and down to earth! She was exactly that on her wedding day and not to mention beyond stunning!!! When I met Carl, I knew he was right for her – – The way he made her smile, the way she would radiate when she was around him. You know thats a good man! Even though it rained on their wedding day, we got to bust out the umbrellas, which is always fun! These two WANTED to go in the rain and I loved that. Who wants to play in the rain!?? THIS AWESOME COUPLE!! I don’t know about you but I think rain is romantic and what better way to seal a wedding day with rain?? It’s good luck after all!!!
