It’s official: Chris and Irina are married!! They exchanged vows Saturday afternoon at their Historic Aldie Mill wedding. And let me tell you – it was a beautiful day here in Virginia!! The sun was out, the sky was blue and their loved ones traveled from all over for their wedding day!!
Irina actually grew up in Kazakhstan, so her family traveled across the globe to celebrate with her. It was so easy to see how much she is loved!! And it was extra touching to see Chris joining the family. From the Russian traditions (like the entertaining shoe game!) to the emotional toasts, it was an honor to capture two joyful families celebrating Chris and Irina’s love.
The most touching moment was when Irina read a beautiful poem to her parents in Russian. She had a translated version printed out so everyone could follow along. And by the end of the night, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house (myself included).
I knew from their Meadowlark engagement session that Chris and Irina are the perfect match for each other. But it was so special capturing all that love on their wedding day! Chris and Irina – here’s to a beautiful life full of love, laughter and adventure. I wish you both the best as you start this journey together as husband and wife! Here are some of my favorite wedding photos from the day!
