Intimate Old Alexandria Wedding

Danielle & Bobby

Danielle and Bobby are two of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of meeting and photographing. They brought me into their lives open armed, making me feel like an old friend. After their engagement session in Old Alexandria with Bobby's vintage Porsche, I knew their wedding would be amazing!

Sarah, my fav second photographer, and I arrived at the Hotel Indigo with a view overlooking the Potomac. On a perfectly breezy afternoon and blue skies, sailboats littered the river, creating the perfect day.

After Danielle finished getting ready, she had her first look with her dad outside and took a stroll together to the venue, The Atheneum. Bobby was waiting with their son at the entrance of the most magical courtyard ceremony space you could imagine. With their closest family and friends watching, Danielle walked down the aisle with her father, and between Bobby's and their sons reactions, I couldn't tell which one was getting me more emotional.

After their beautiful ceremony and a few couple portraits, the couple lead the way for their guests through the streets of Old Alexandria back to their al fresco reception at The Hummingbird. Danielle and Bobby's family was so loving and gracious. You could truly tell how happy they all were during their family portraits, and let me tell you, family portraits aren't always fun and games. 

Their beautiful evening kicked off with the rest of their guests arriving for the reception, drinking cocktails on the patio, and feeling the cool breeze cary them into the night. After a few more drinks, we brought Danielle and Bobby out to the water for a few more gorgeous sunset portraits, with passerby's wishing them congratulations. We finished the night with an Intimate cake cutting and emotional first dances with each other and their parents, opening the floor to dancing under the twinkling lights in a little historical town in Virginia.
