Trinity United Methodist Church | Smithfield VA | Southern VA Wedding Photographer
Chris and Alisa were married on a beautifully sunny day in October. The day before Halloween to be exact. Alisa got ready with her bridesmaids in a lighthouse that has been converted into a quaint inn. Across the street was a little vineyard where Chris and Alisa shared their first look. There were smiles for days and tears of happiness. These two have a love so palpable, that you couldn't help but be pulled into their joy. Another unique aspect to this wedding, was that the lead photographer (who is AWESOME) and bride have been friends since childhood. Talk about a special honor to photograph one of your best friends weddings! Everything came together beautifully. But don't just take my word for it. Have a look and see for yourself. So. Much. Joy.
Chris was so excited to see Alisa, and she could not take her eyes off her handsome groom!
We arrived to the church early, which meant more time for portraits! At the reception, Alisa and her dad put on a super entertaining, choreographed first dance! Then there was BBQ, toasts, cake cutting, and enjoying the night away!
