  kelly and jeff are married!!! ~ Virginia Wedding Photographer June 3, 2009   

This was such a wonderful couple to work with–I was truly blessed to be a part of this beautiful wedding!  Where to begin…I’ll give you fair warning that this is a looooong post–I have way too many beautiful shots to choose from and these below are truly just the icing on the cake!  This wedding took place a the historic and incredibly beautiful Collingswood Library and Museum located in Alexandria, VA.  All “getting ready” photos were taken at the Hotel Monaco also located in Alexandria, Va.  The beautiful flowers were handled by Pat’s Floral Designs located in Madison, VA and the delicious catering by Avenue Events in Alexandria as well.  I also want to give a shout out to my wonderful second shooter Lorena Perez–thanks so much girl–you are wonderul!  And of coarse my husband err..um..technology coordinator George for all of his help–thanks baby!

Love this shot of the rings–so summery and fun!
