Congratulations to Danielle and Adam! They had a beautiful fall wedding at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia. It was fun to take a trip out of town for this one.

These Kate Spade Wedding Shoes were a perfect touch to Danielle’s fall themed wedding. The giraffe broach was Danielle’s mothers. It’ss a truly beautiful touch to add something sentimental to a bridal bouquet.

Eric loves to capture beautiful silhouettes of the bridal party helping the bride to get dressed.

Love the color palette for this fall themed wedding. Love how excited the flower girl is to be front and center with her fall flower basket and beautiful flower girl dress.

They had a quote at the top of their wedding programs from Princess Bride: That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying, “As you wish,” what he really meant was, “I love you.” And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.

The readings during their ceremony were “I Love You”, by Roy Croft and “Desiderata”, by Max Erhmann. Desiderata in particular had a very personal family connection.

In their vows instead of saying I Do… they answered “As You Wish” to add a little unexpected humor to the ceremony.

The first look is a favorite moment for most brides and grooms on their wedding day. This stunning staircase at the Pleasantdale Chateau truly sets the tone.
