Emily + Doug // Wedding | Leesburg, Virginia

I am so excited to share this gorgeous wedding with you this morning! Ever since I met up with Doug & Emily in October for their engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be amazing (they have the best smiles hands down). We also had the challenge of doing both cinematography and photography, so I brought Ali Caudill (an amazing portrait photographer), Jon Combs (an up and coming cinematographer), and my father Greg (for cinematography). I really cannot thank them enough for their help.

The ceremony and reception were both held at the Thomas Birkby House in Leesburg, Virginia. The house itself was simply incredible. It was filled to the brim with details already and Emily & Doug’s touches only added to that. The centerpieces are Emily’s family’s glassware, as her parents are antique collectors (so cool). The glassware is actually remaniscent of the period the Birkby House was built, which really worked well with the setting. During the ceremony, Emily & Doug incorporated a really neat German tradition called the “Nuernberg Bridal Cup” instead of a unity candle. You can read the¬†fascinating¬†story of the tradition here. The cup is a handcrafted pewter vessel in the shape of a woman with drinking cups on both ends. Both the bride and groom are able to toast their wedding and drink at the same time from the same cup. After the ceremony, guests headed into the reception, while we took Emily & Doug into the golden light in front of the house. I swear, Emily & Doug are hilarious in front of the camera, especially when they pull out their lips and moustaches from the engagement session. They were giving me so many awesome poses, so it was tough to pick out just a few. I hope you enjoy a small look at Emily & Doug’s wedding day and stay tuned for the film coming soon!!
