Adam & Dayna | Inn at Old Silk Mill | Fredericksburg Virginia

What do you get when you cross a Navy Pilot with beauty, grace, charm, wanderlust and a love of Disney?  You get Adam and Dayna and their fairytale  Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding.  To say it was a magical day, is an understatement.

…And what do you get when you have a dream team of vendors?  You also get magic.  From the Dj, Baker, HMU, Caterer, Planner, Video and everyone else in between, it was the epitome of how a wedding day should go.  (I’m talking to you, Fat Girl Cakes, having to bring your amazing creation in the middle of a hail storm…)

Because of circumstances beyond her control, Amber wasn’t able to shoot this wedding with me  (we missed you Amber! xoxox)  …and then my back up second shooter was involved in a pretty serious car accident and also wasn’t able to shoot. (Get better soon Anita! xoxoxo) However, just like in a Disney movie, Matthew Thwing stepped in like a knight in shining armor.  I’d just like to give a HUGE shout out to him and express my undying gratitude!  It turns out that we make a pretty good team!  (Don’t worry Amber, I’ll never replace you! 🙂 )

We had pouring rain, hail, lighting and about 47 seconds of sun but we made the most of it and rocked it.  Dayna was drop dead gorgeous and the weather didn’t do a thing to her mood.  She just wanted to marry her best friend.  And speaking of her best friend… he looked like he just stepped out of a GQ magazine!  The wedding party was ridiculously fun to work with.  If you don’t believe me, just check out the bridal party shot!  Haha.

Please enjoy just a few images that we pulled for the preview.  There were so many gorgeous images and details that it was hard to narrow it down to just a few… trust me, there was enough detail eye candy to make this preview last for dayssssssssss but don’t worry… we won’t make you sit thru that, so lets get to the good stuff!
