Ian & Suzy | Married Elegant Wedding at Whitehall Estate in Bluemont, Virginia

Despite the freezing cold temperatures, and the wind that was trying desperately to knock us all down, Ian & Suzy’s wedding was absolutely amazing! I have so many favorite details from the day that it would be impossible to choose just one…

Ian & Suzy got ready at Lansdowne Resort & Spa, and their wedding was held at Whitehall Estate. Whitehall is just so grand, and it fit them perfectly! I actually have two weddings in a row here, and I’m so excited to come back!

One of my favorite moments from the day was Ian & Suzy’s First Look. Ian was so excited to see his bride, and his reaction was priceless! As soon as she tapped him on his shoulder, he turned around and scooped her up in a big hug and kiss with a huge smile on his face! 

Ian & Suzy, thank you for giving me the honor of photographing your wedding! It was an amazing day!

Ever since Suzy told me that she had a two-piece dress (and the skirt by Watters, no less!), I was looking forward to seeing it together! It was even more stunning in person than it looked on the website!
