Brandon & Sam | Marshall, Virginia Wedding Photographer

Where do I even begin with Brandon and Sam? They have been a blessing in my life … and not just in my life, but everyone! One detail I thought was very sweet and really exemplifies how thoughtful they are was how they made every single one of their guests feel special. On each place setting, Brandon and Sam took the time to write out personalized notes to each guest. Let’s just say that there were definitely some tears shed as guests found their notes. :) This says so much about them!!

Saturday turned out to be a stunning day for Brandon and Sam! Kids were running around and playing with bubbles in the yard … It was actually pretty sweet because I overheard Sam say that they will be able to share these photos from their wedding day to their future kids and show them that the tent was placed where their house will sit. So sweet!!! The reception was definitely a party as Nate Clancy worked the dance floor!!! My heart melted when Sam brought her grandmother on the dance floor to boogie down. She was smiling ear to ear as her granddaughter danced with and around her! Haha! So adorable! After a few dances, including Brandon’s surprise dance to take off the garter, they played the Shoelywed game! We all loved seeing their reactions as we all got to know them more through their answers. ;) Hilarious! Overall, it was a beautiful celebration and I am beyond honored to have been a part of Brandon and Sam’s wedding day!!!

Thank you Brandon, Sam, family and friends for a great time Saturday!!! I wanted to boogy down with you all so bad on the dance floor but I really enjoyed documenting your fun moments together! :) Enjoy a preview through my eyes!! CONGRATS Brandon and Sam!!! XOXO!
