Erik & Kelli are such a sweet couple! The way they look at each other, talk to one another, and their interactions are simply adorable.

They had originally planned a September wedding for the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, however, plans changed for 2020 and they decided to move the celebration to Kelli’s parent’s waterfront home in Hayes, VA. The location was stunning!!! The weather… hot and humid, but no rain in sight, so that was a blessing!

From the time I arrived to the time I left, everyone was so full of enthusiasm and love for these two. I have to say my favorite part was their first dance. Erik & Kelli shared a sweet slow song which cutaway to an upbeat song where they were joined by the bridal party and then the guests! The dance floor was hopping and Erik & Kelli were in their glory dancing around and laughing! It was heartwarming!

Erik & Kelli, you both are so loved by your family and friends! I am so honored you chose me to capture this part of your adventure. I wish you both so much happiness and love!! ✨
