RJ & Lauren’s Christmas Wedding!

RJ & Lauren are two very smart, adorable people, and they are even more adorable together!  They are very sweet, and I couldn’t have had a better time with them and their families!   A beautiful and full of meaning mass at the beautiful Church of the Nativity in Burke VA, followed by a wonderfully decorated reception at Harbour View in Occoquan, VA!  Such a great group of family and friends, and such a beautiful wedding!  🙂  And what a wonderful family, too!  They all made me feel like I was a part of their family as well.  What a special feeling.  🙂  Completed by wonderful Italian tones and food, Christmas trees and lights, unique glasses with the couple’s names on them, a special saxophone serenade for the bride, special items that meant a lot to the bride and her family, heartfelt speeches, tearfully happy parent dances, and a special boat departure on the river, (hosted by RiverShore Charters) accompanied by sparklers and glow sticks!  I really loved how they had the Christmas lights throughout the reception.  That made for some really neat photos!  😀

Once we arrived at the reception site, we had some fun doing some bridal party pics, before everyone got too cold.  🙂  It was wonderful, because we still had some of the fall colors left in a few trees, so we were able to find a pretty spot right next to the water to use for a few of the bridal portrait and photos!  🙂
