Happy Sunday everyone!!!
I feel like I have waited a million years to finally write about this. Thank you to Classic Bride for featuring my gorgeous bridal session held at Gary Melcher’s Belmont in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I have waited to blog about the bridal session until now. Allie, the stunning beauty in the pictures came to me with an idea to capture some before images of her wearing her mother’s wedding dress. She had planned on wearing it for her wedding but wanted to make a few changes to it. We brainstormed the perfect location for a sunset bridal session. We met at Belmont for her session and took advantage of the gorgeous sunset in the gardens. The golden light made for perfect pictures! We really had a wonderful session. Allie and I worked on an album for her mother so she could give her the surprise photos at the reception the night before her wedding. Her mom was so touched by them and it truly meant a lot to her to have something so special. Her mother did not see the changes made to the dress until the day of the wedding. Allie looked absolutely stunning in both dresses, the before and after. Pictured below is the bridal session at Belmont and then her mother helping her with her dress on her wedding day. One of the sweetest stories ever. I am so blessed to have been a part of such a sentimental occasion and special time in their lives.
I am super excited to see the bride’s story and images featured on Classic Bride. This gorgeous bridal session would not have been possible without the trust of friend and gorgeous bride in capturing these special images for her. Thanks to her for setting us up at Belmont for her photo session and thank you Sarah at Classic Bride for sharing her story and photos.
