It may have been threatening to rain on Lia’s wedding day, but this very calm and collected bride took everything in stride and was all smiles throughout the day… and really, this could not have been a more perfect venue for the rain — the enclosed ceiling at Gaylord National Hotel made it feel like we were outside on a bright and beautiful day no matter what! Lia’s family and I watched as she had her hair and makeup expertly done by Bridal Beauty Associates, transforming her from a gorgeous girl-next-door into a breathtaking bride, but the real smiles didn’t come until a little while later when Lia and Brian shared their First Look moment and started their wedding day together, hand in hand.
When I first met Lia and Brian for their engagement session several months ago, it was obvious that they were in love with one another… little kisses, big laughs, and the natural way that Lia just fell into his arms whenever I asked them to stand together. But a wedding day, as beautiful as it can be, is a far more stressful time than an afternoon walk along the Georgetown canal with only your photographer around. As I watched Lia and Brian say their vows and take their first steps as husband and wife, as I watched them greet family and friends lovingly and with complete sincerity, and as I noted the grace and strength with which they embraced the day fully supporting one another, I could tell that this is an enduring kind of love. Okay okay I got that lump in the throat thing. It happens in my line of work
Lia and Brian, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your big day. Congratulations and we love you!!
