I just adore these two, but I honestly don’t think a single wedding goes by without me getting a little choked up at one point or another. At Ellyn and Tom’s wedding, it was the moment during the reception when Tom’s older brother joked in his speech about the fact that after marriage, the hand-holding and whispering and sweet things that couples do together typically end. But somehow, he can’t ever see any of those sweet things ending for Tom and Ellyn. They are not only deeply in love with each other, they are also each others best friend. At that moment, I looked over at the newly married couple and could sense the calmness and contentment that radiated around them. Tom and Ellyn looked so comfortable and happy together surrounded by those who love them — and loved they are. Ellyn looked stunning and Tom constantly looked at her all day long in a way that every woman should get to experience at some point in her life. These two were married at St. Timothy’s Catholic Church and had their gorgeous reception at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg.
To their entire bridal party, thank you all for braving the cold for some portraits outside (I know you all had to have been cold out there) and to Tom and Ellyn, thank you for allowing us to witness how much you love each other. It truly was an honor that you entrusted us to document such a special day in your lives. Enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding and be sure to stay tuned for their wedding highlights video, coming soon!
