I shot the wedding of Daniela and Chris at Poplar Springs Inn and Spa in Warrenton, VA. This was a wedding for the ages. Easily one of the most beautiful locations I visited this season, but also one of the sweetest couples I have ever shot. My day started with the father of the bride telling me the story of how he and his daughter drove a 1932 Ford across the country. It turns out that her grandfather built the car in the 50’s and it was featured in Hot Rodder Magazine. They tracked the car down and brought it to the wedding for the newly married couple to drive off in. Great stuff! (Daniela and Chris opted for a “First Look” moment which was so moving that I am devoting next week’s blog post to it.) The ceremony went well but as we were finishing up the Bridal Party photos the bride mentioned how she needed to sit down because she hit a wall. It turned out to be food poisoning but the bride did her best to battle through the reception. The night ended in a flurry as we squeezed in the first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, best man and maid of honor speeches and some crazy electronic music dancing. As the evening ended I heard the bride say “that was the best 20 minutes of my life.” Special thanks to Emily for a great job 2nd shooting!
