There’s so much to love about this sweet Riverside on the Potomac wedding. Noel and Bryan said their vows at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Leesburg, then headed over to Riverside on the Potomac for their reception, which was the perfect blend of rustic elegance. Their day was record-breaking for early November temperature lows and I swear this couple and this wedding party could not have been more cooperative than they were. I could not believe how well they all tolerated the cold; their bridal party clearly did it because they support and love Noel and Bryan that much. And who wouldn’t? These two walk in the room and they instantly light it up and I think you’ll fall in love with them when you see how sweet they are together.
But even with the cold temperatures, their day was nothing short of amazing. While every last detail of their day was just beautiful, their main priority was that their guests had a great time and they expressed just how grateful they were to have everyone they loved and cared about there with them. They had family and friends come from all over the globe to celebrate with them, and since Bryan’s family traveled from and is from Ireland, they had a super fun traditional Irish dance during the reception. Their dance floor was SO packed that Carley and I were unable to move much around the dance floor to photograph the party! Several times I got trapped against the barn wall or had to duck and dodge flying arms and elbows because there were so many people dancing and having a blast that I had nowhere to go, which I must admit was a hilarious and entertaining problem to have as a photographer. I laughed the whole time right along with them. Scroll on for a huge preview from their day and see yourself just how much fun they all had!
Noel and Bryan, I hope you guys are having the time of your lives right now and I couldn’t have been more grateful to have been there to document this day for you. It’s been so wonderful getting to know you and I hope that you are able to relive your amazing day through these images! XX.
