Chantilly Wedding: Chris & Melissa

I've been excited to be a part of this couple's wedding since I first met them.  Chris and Melissa are two of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met.  They are kind, caring and they make everyone feel like a friend.  Melissa's father said it best, "when Melissa is your friend, you know you have a real friend."  I couldn't agree more. 

Chris and Melissa planned an outdoor ceremony at International Country Club, so I was a little nervous at the beginning of the week as we sweltered through hot, humid, record breaking temps and early summer thunderstorms.  However, on Thursday, the thermostat plummetted to a gorgeous 70 degrees and the skies cleared.  (And yes, it was Thursday exactly!  I checked the weather every day that week!!)  And so, as Chris and Melissa said "I do", a cool breeze was blowing and the late afternoon sun was peeking through the clouds.  I could not have imagined a more perfect day for this amazing couple.

Chris and Melissa, enjoy your preview!!

I loved this idea, it was a monogrammed pouch sewn into Melissa's dress.  It's where she kept her "something old".

Melissa's shoes were a wedding gift from her groom.  Yep....he's a keeper!

Cutest. Ringbearer. Ever.

At the end of the night, we snuck out onto the putting green for a few fun pics.  A huge thank you (as always) to my awesome second shooter Becca Watkins for her mad skills in off camera lighting!!
