It started with downtown happy hours and turned into a relationship so heart-warming, you can’t help but smile while watching these two. I simply adore Kristin and Josh and how unbelievably smitten they are with each other. They exude such love and happiness, and so many times throughout the day I would catch them secretly sharing a kiss, not minding one bit of attention to the crazy rain and chilly temperatures they received on their wedding day. It has rained continuously so much these last few weeks that it actually hasn’t rained days in a row like this in the area since the Civil War!
Kristin and Josh were married at St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Alexandria and their reception was held at the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant. Kristin and her dad shared a cute and joyful father/daughter dance to “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” because they used to always dance to it together in the basement, and Josh and his mom had a sweet and moving mother/son dance to “Sunrise, Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof. Kristin and Josh’s first priority was celebrating with all the people who had come to share in their day with them and spent the rest of the evening dancing and celebrating with their family and friends. Kristin and Josh, I hope you two have an incredible experience traveling to Croatia for your honeymoon and wish you all of the best in your new adventures together as husband and wife!
Seeing each other’s faces right before the ceremony by peeking around a door. How cute is Josh’s reaction to seeing her?? Love!
Sharing another kiss at the end of the aisle immediately after they were married!
And another right after signing their Marriage Certificate!
