This charming 48 fields wedding is very near and dear to my heart. You see, I’ve known Vicky and Sean since before Sarandipity was even born! I met Sean when I was working retail next to his family restaurant, The Main Street Pub, in Clifton, VA and Vicky when she worked right down the street at the town bakery, Cupcaked. They met at that little purple cupcake shop, and I watched these two as their relationship flourished and grew into what it is today. I was so honored when Sean reached out to me to photograph his proposal to Vicky (right in the very place they met, too!) and then again when he wanted me to share in their wedding day too!
From the moment I walked in the Ritz Carlton doors, I knew their day was going to be something so special. I was greeted with all the hugs from her and her bridesmaids, and everyone was all giggles the whole morning. Tiffany from T-Mak Artistry absolutely nailed Vicky’s make-up and she looked like an actual princess in her Bhldn gown. Which is actually fitting because Vicky’s immense love for Disney did not go unnoticed! From the hidden Mickey in her bouquet, to The Circle of Life that played for the processional, and the sweetest Disney quote toast her father gave, she made sure to have subtle Disney references throughout the day! 48 Fields made a beautiful backdrop for their special day, and let me tell you, there was not a dry eye in the house when those doors opened with “Can you Feel the Love Tonight” playing as Sean saw his princess for the first time. Each and every detail was planned perfectly, and the love these two shared for each other was prominent throughout the entire night.
There is always something special about sharing wedding days with my couples, but there is something that is just incredible when you get to witness two people you’ve known for a long time take on forever. I wish these two nothing but a lifetime of love together, and I can’t wait to see where their next adventure takes them!
