Abbe & Bruce are one of the nicest couples I’ve ever met! I met Abbe my first college class. I walked in scared, and we ended up in the same row since our last names both began with “M”. She was so sweet to me, and even though we only sat there a short time, became friends. I didn’t know then that almost 4 years later I’d have the huge privilege of photographing her wedding! She and Bruce have dated almost all of their college years, and Bruce is such an amazing guy for sweet Abbe!
Their wedding is one for the books! They tied the knot at the beautiful Raspberry Plain in Leesburg, VA on Independence Day! There was a huge chance of rain leading up to their wedding, but it stopped right at portrait time and we had such perfect weather. Their wedding was filled with soft colors and flowing details, and ended with a sparkler exit while fireworks went off in the distance! Abbe was an incredibly stunning bride, and glowed the entire day.
When Abbe’s dad gave a speech, he mentioned what leaders these two are, and he couldn’t be more right! Their maturity is so evident, along with their genuine love for each other. I’m so excited for these two and their new lives together!
Congrats Abbe & Bruce, and thank you for allowing me the honor of photographing your wedding! <3
