River Farm Wedding: Susanne and Richard
Susanne and Rich are one of my favorite long distance love stories. They dated for five years while they completed their residencies in different states. Finally they chose to settle down together in the hustle and bustle of New York City. Despite choosing NYC as their home, they were so excited to come back down to be with friends and family to celebrate their special day at River Farm in Alexandria, Virginia. Susanne told me how much a wedding by the water meant to her as she always dreamed of being married on the river, and what better backdrop in the Mid-Atlantic than the Potomac! Susanne and Rich were blessed with some amazing weather on the day-of. The wind sweeping off the water and gorgeous clouds in the sky perfectly framed quite a few beautiful moments throughout the ceremony and during their portraits.
They had so many elegant and sentimental details tied into their day. Susanne was wearing her father's family ring and had the rings of a couple of whom she and Rich admire tied into her bouquet. I just loved all the pastel colors, the vintage tea pots and their ombrecake. The day was filled with breath taking moments and I'm so thankful that Susanne and Rich allowed me to document their special day. Congrats to you both!
