For Brides

As crazy as this year has been with all the curveballs, all of my sweet MJMP couples have taken it in stride and have been so flexible! Stephanie and Justin are no exception, deciding to change their original plan for an October wedding to a sweet and intimate elopement on October 1st and saving their big wedding and reception for October 2021!

October kicked off in the best way by me driving up to Northern Virginia where Stephanie and Justin live. I wa able to capture Stephanie getting ready with her girls at her home then after a drive through some NoVA traffic, we met at the Catholic Church where Justin, friends and family were waiting for their elopement.

Stephanie looked effortlessly chic and romantic in a midi lace dress and bold red lip (how freaking STUNNING!) and a long veil with a rose filled bouquet to add to her look. Justin of course looking as handsome as ever in a navy blue suit. Despite the clouds that rolled in and some sprinkle rain, they shared a sweet First Look before going inside to saw their vows in front of their closest friends and family.

I was so thankful to have been a part of their special day and I absolutely cannot wait for their big wedding in 2021!

But while we wait for the reception and big fun of the 2021 wedding, here are some of my favorites from this year’s romantic and intimate elopement.

What a beautiful elopement and it just makes me even more excited for their wedding October 2021! Only a little over 365 days left to go 😉
