The Country Club of Virginia Wedding – Carrington & John

“Married life is amazing! We are still getting used to calling each other husband and wife, and I am getting used to my new last name, but we have loved every minute of it!

Something that surprised us about our big day was that we were both so calm and at ease on the day of the wedding. Leading up to the wedding was stressful and we both found ourselves anxious with all the planning.

However, when the wedding day rolled around, we both were calm and somehow knew everything would work out perfectly. WHICH IT DID! We got so lucky with everything going as smoothly. We were SO happy that we decided (somewhat last minute) to do a First Look before the wedding ceremony.

Jonathan and Ruth did a wonderful job of setting the scene for our First Look, and if we could relive one moment from the wedding, it would be seeing each other for the first time during that First Look. It was so private and intimate with just the two of us (and the photographers, but we felt like it was just us two). We also considered the “sunset photos” to be another highlight of our wedding. Jonathan and Ruth quietly whisked us away right as the perfect sunset was appearing, and brought the two of us out onto the golf course to take photos with a breathtaking sunset as the backdrop. Yet another romantic and surreal experience from our wedding day that we will never forget. Another highlight from the wedding would be the two of us dancing on stage with the band.”

“We are so blessed to have worked with such an amazing photography team, all of whom made our day less stressful and made sure everything went smoothly!”

We’re SO thrilled for these two and their new adventure as newlyweds!  We can’t wait to see what’s ahead for them. Congratulations, Carrington + John!
