Amanda and Amir were married at the Truro Church in Fairfax and had their reception at Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket. This was one of my favorite couples of the year. Sometimes I come across two people who simply have amazing chemistry together. The passion, love, fun, respect, and joy they hold for each other is constantly on display. It made my job easy.
Between the ceremony and reception we stopped at the historic Civil War battlefield, Bull Run. We shot some wonderful images as Amanda and Amir finally had a few moments to themselves.
The reception was crazy from the start, with the happy couple dancing into the room to the song “Jump Around” by House of Pain. The dancing never stopped for one little THREE YEAR old boy. Seriously. He danced the entire reception. He was the first one on the dance floor and he never left. He never left!!! I have never seen anything like it.
The craziness did not let up during the bouquet and garter toss. One of the bridesmaids risked injury to catch the flowers only to be rewarded by a insane/ bizarre/ hilarious/ outrageous/ unforgettable dance(?) by the guy who caught the garter. The photos hardly do it justice as he spent nearly five minutes putting the garter on her leg, and had the entire reception doubled over in laughter.
A day to remember.
