River Bend Golf & Country Club | Ashburn, Virginia | Wedding | Stephanie & John

We first met Stephanie many years ago, when we all were working for The Gazette newspapers. We’d kept in touch over the years and were so happy to see her engagement announcement to John posted on Facebook! Shortly afterward we met up with the happy couple and their dog, Bailey, in the Great Falls area of Maryland to capture their engagement session.

In October, it was time for their wedding day! St. John’s Episcopal Church in McLean, Virginia, was the setting for the ceremony.

Christopher William Kimball-Aubrey and AJ Ledbetter teamed up with hair and makeup to help Stephanie and the other ladies get even more gorgeous.

A little rainfall didn’t stop John from having a joy-filled first-look with his bride before the ceremony.
