Y’all, Fall is finally here, and Aleah & Alex’s wedding was proof. The weather was absolutely perfect, and these two deserved that! I had been so excited to get to see them again AND shoot my first wedding at The Dominion Club in YEARS! Plus, it really made my day to walk in and see Aleah & Alex’s engagement photos framed all over the lobby. 🙂 BUT I was even more thrilled to see Aleah’s calm, smiling face. She was coloring with the flowering girl just a serene as could be!
We started out the day in The Dominion Club’s beautiful prep room that was stocked with everything the girls would need . . . meaning Cokes and mimosas. 😉
Aleah’s ring is one of my favorites to shoot!
And of course, a teal Mrs Box didn’t hurt!! 🙂
Alex seemed PRETTY excited to get to the First Look with his bride!
Little P was loving her flower girl dress with a big pink ribbon to match the girls!
And she was also happy to share her candy with Aleah. How cute is she??
Before we knew it, it was time for the best part: the First Look!
The Walking Shot is clearly one of Alex’s favorites!
I think The Dominion Club is one of the most stunning backdrops!
And Aleah is one of the most stunning brides!
My friend Christina monogrammed Aleah’s bouquet sash!
This is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.
After the ceremony and family shots, we snuck in a few more bride and groom portraits with Aleah’s veil!
Shout out to one my favorite DJs in RVA, Seth! It’s always more fun when you get to work with friends. Also, I’m obsessed with Jeremy, Amanda, and the rest of the staff at The Dominion Club. I’ve never seen a venue more on top of its game!!
I love a good cigar bar because it usually results in shots like these!
And just like that . . . it was time for everyone to send the newlyweds off to their honeymoon down South!!
Aleah & Alex,
Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your day! I can’t wait to see what adventures await you two!!
