Patrick + Marissa : Southern Wedding


I could imagine it as one of those times that when Patrick and Marissa first met, something immediately clicked. It didn’t take them long to know they were meant for each other and it wasn’t long they were planning their wedding. As a photographer, I stand in the background and just watch…a lot. Many times during the day, it just seemed Patrick and Marissa were in their own world together. I’d see Patrick talking to a friend and look off in the distance for Marissa and when he found her, he could barely take his eyes off of her. Sigh.

A few of my favorite moments of their day:

– Marissa designed every.single.detail of her wedding. And it was amazingly lovely. As soon as we arrived on their wedding day until we left, family and friends threw in a helping hand all day to help with their special day.

– Patrick + Marissa had their wedding in Floyd, VA at a family friend’s farm (actually, I believe it was her coach from high school). Talk about sentimental!

– Off in the field, family and friends set off fireworks to end the night. Patrick + Marissa stood on the dance floor alone, holding each other while they watched the fireworks.
