CHRISTINE & JEFF | A SUNNY POTOMAC SHORES WEDDING

It may have been September but the sun was shining brightly in bright blue sky. It was warm – okay it was hot – but we survived! I arrived at Potomac Shores Golf Club early to scope the place out. Christine came bursting through the doors in her Bride-to-be robe with the biggest smile on her face! She and her bridesmaids got ready in one room while Jeff and his groomsmen kicked back across the hall. Christine and Jeff had written each other a personal letter to be read before the ceremony! So sweet! I used it as a background for a few ring shots then the notes were distributed. Jeff read his letter amongst the chaos in the boys locker room and Christine read Jeff’s among her bridesmaids… it look a little bit longer because Jeff wrote in cursive… he later mentioned that he “probably should have” written in print on the back so it was easier but he forgot. (haha). Christine and Jeff opted not to see each other before the ceremony but shared a moment around the corner from each other – “Hi Jeffrey! Are you ready?!”

After the ceremony, friends and family gathered for family photos and hugs all around! Afterwards, the guests left and we had time for bridal party and bride and groom portraits! Finding shade was the top on my list after standing in the heat for a while!

The reception was held at Fortune in Falls Church. Packed with family and friends, Christine and Jeff made their way around to each table during the 10 course dinner! YES – 10 courses! After dinner, Christine and Jeff shared their first dances and lastly, cut their cake!
