river landing country club wedding – megan & chad
OK, so this River Landing Country Club wedding is going to be the final wedding to hit the blog in 2017, and, as far as I’m concerned, it’s a great way to wrap up the year. Yes, it’s a bit of a corker!
Let’s see: Fab bride and groom? Check! Awesome wedding party? Check!! Beautiful locations? Check!!! T-Rex first dance? CHECK!!! The list goes on…
Megan and Chad were really great to work with. Megan is a photographer herself, so I was very flattered when she reached out to me to ask me to shoot her wedding. Given that she lives in VA, we pretty much planned everything via phone and email and hadn’t actually met till the wedding day itself. I met up with her and the girls in their suite at River Landing (loved the light in there!) before heading over to get together with Chad and the boys by the ceremony location. During the planning process, Megan had mentioned she wanted the surrounding woods to play a part in the vibe of the day, so we basically stepped off the road and into the trees to make the guys’ portraits right there by the parked cars. Following the ceremony, we had some fun taking photos photos with the bridal party before spending about 20 minutes exploring the location and light by the cocktail hour. From there, we hit up the Mad Boar Restaurant where the Celtic Court event space was set aside for us.
This was a beautiful day with plenty of anticipation, mood and emotion. From the getting ready, to the ceremony and the reception with the dancing, games and emotional tribute to Megan’s late dad, it was a privilege to be there to take it all in and document. So, I’ll stop waffling on and let you check out for yourselves.
Here are my picks of the pics. Merry Christmas and best wishes for a brilliant 2018 to all!
