Fall Magenta & Blush Harbour View Woodbridge Wedding

September 10, 2019

MORGAN & ZACH

MorganZachHarbourViewWeddingVirginiaWeddignPhotographer-143

Morgan & Zach celebrated their wedding at the Harbour View down in Woodbridge, Virginia out on the water! These two love spending time by the water (they took their engagement session at Old Town on the water!) so it was only fitting they would get married at Harbour View among their family & friends! They chose to do a first look which was, of course, my favorite moment of the day. I always get chills during the first look because it is such a sweet moment only between the bride and the groom and a part of the wedding day that a lot of people don’t often get to experience! Morgan & Zach’s was so incredibly sweet, they felt so relaxed and relieved after having seen each other and absolutely loved being able to spend time with each other as well as their best friends in their bridal party before the ceremony took place! Zach actually told me multiple times throughout the day and came up to me at the end of the night saying how much he appreciated doing a first look and how it was such a great decision for their wedding day.

The day continued with so much fun with their large bridal party taking all their pictures before the ceremony! They had 6 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen so it was definitely a party and you could tell how much they all loved Morgan & Zach. I was amazed at truly how much family had flown in or driven great distances to help Morgan & Zach celebrate! It was so special to see so many people united by Morgan & Zach and you could tell how much it meant to them that they had their family and friends in town for this big day!

Their wedding team put together such a beautiful gorgeous, relaxed early fall day for these two! It was simple, elegant and FUN just like Morgan & Zach themselves! The flowers from Pine and Petal as well as Something Borrowed Blooms were absolutely stunning! I absolutely loved photographing their burgundy, and gold color palette and their sunset portraits are some of my absolute all time favorites!!

Morgan & Zach, thank you so much for entrusting me with capturing your wedding day! You two have been an absolute joy to work with over the last year and a half and I wish you two the very best in married life together!! Here’s a couple of sneak peeks from your wedding day to tide you over until you receive what is going to be a VERY large wedding gallery 🙂
