the weddings: darcy & michael ~ leesburg, va

She thought it would be “a good idea,” so she said when he first asked her for her phone number and said he might call her.  Having met earlier at a rehearsal dinner, Michael spent the entire day of his sister’s wedding trying to impress Darcy. They went on their first date that evening.

And they dated long distance as Michael attended the Air Force Academy and Darcy finished school. A few years later, Michael surprised Darcy by flying to visit her where she lived in Virginia and asked for her hand in marriage. “I think that would be a good idea,” was her response.

Despite the rain, it was a beautiful day filled with precious memories. And at the end, after the cake was cut (by a sword!) and devoured, the bouquet was thrown and the garter tossed,  and Darcy was “welcomed” into the Air Force family,  twelve year old Payton (Darcy’s brother) turned to ten year old Daniel (Michael’s brother) and said, “Take care of my sister, ok?”

Michael and Darcy, thanks for letting me be a part of your day and making the most of the rain! We got horses (almost!), and umbrellas and Michael resurrecting his Irish Dance career! I’m excited that you guys are moving out here.

Special Thanks to Leah Crutcher for coordinating a great day!
P.S. Since I had to travel by plane and stay at a hotel for this wedding, do I get to count it as a “destination wedding?” I’m going to. You can start calling me “the destination wedding photographer” now!:)

Why are swords part of the uniform? I don’t know, but it makes for interesting pictures.

Hanssie, I just love the first photo. The couple is truly sharing a tender moment. Love the composition, and love how the background matches her bouquet. Great capture!

What a beautiful wedding Hanssie! Go Air Force! And yes, I think it can qualify as a destination wedding, seeing as it was over 500 miles away.

Wow! I just LOVE these Hanssie! I’m sure your couple is just so thrilled with these, as I’m sure any one would! My faves are that stunning ring shot, and the shot from behind on that long road. They are all just beautiful though! :)
