Kelsie + Byron A Beaverdam Train Depot Wedding | Bumpass, VA

After a morning full of rain and clouds, the sun began to shine right as Drew + I pulled into Kelsie’s driveway. We knocked on the door and were immediately greeted with squeals of excitement + so much love! The room was buzzing with happiness + the day couldn’t have been off to a better start. Despite a forecast of 70% chance of rain, the sun continued to shine for the ENTIRE day!! I don’t think it can get any better than that!

Kelsie + Byron’s wedding day was filled with so much genuine joy. From thoughtful speeches to tearful hugs to beautiful personalized details…you could just feel the love and excitement throughout the entire day! And, the cherry blossom portraits!? Just you wait and see…they’re new favorites for SURE!

Kelsie + Byron: Thank you for kicking off my 2016 wedding season with a bang! You two are an absolutely beautiful couple + I am so blessed to have been a part of your special day. I wish you both the absolute best!
