Jasmine + Matthew | Bristow, VA Wedding

March 7, 2023

Nothing could dampen the joy of this wedding, not even a hurricane! Jasmine and Matthew got married during Hurricane Ian. Obviously, not an ideal weather situation for a wedding, but these two made the absolute best of it and had a truly spectacular day. Their vision came together beautifully with the help of some wonderful vendors, and their family and friends! Keep scrolling to see what I mean- the tented ceremony and reception space was incredible, and set the scene for one epic party. We were fortunate to catch a small break in the rainstorm to grab all their portraits after the ceremony, and even though we were trying to beat the rain, I captured some of my favorite bride and groom portraits to date!

To Jasmine + Matthew, it was an absolute joy to work with you both. Thank you for trusting me with documenting your incredible day. It was an honor <3

Jasmine was such an iconic bride.
One of Jasmine’s bridesmaids, Carla, was also a client of mine! She got married a few years back and it is always such a treat to see my previous couples!
Their first dance was incredible!
The rain finally slowed enough and we were able to take some epic night portraits, and it was SO worth it! The guys requested a cigar photo, and this may be one of my favorite “flash” photos I have ever taken.
