Carly & Aaron | A Smithfield, Virginia Backyard Wedding

I met Carly when I worked at The Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, and I instantly fell in love with this girl!! She is SO funny, and will make you feel loved from the moment you meet her. She is such an angel!! I was blown away when she asked me to photograph her wedding when Aaron proposed to her, and of course I IMMEDIATELY said YES MA’AM!!! Carly and Aaron planned a beautiful backyard wedding at Carlys childhood home…..insert little cry face here!!! It was the perfect backdrop for them, and the entire day was flooded with little personal details everywhere you looked. A LOT had happened to this sweet couple just months before they said “I Do”, from Aarons daddy passing away just a few months before, and Carly losing one of her best friends, too. They honored the two beautifully everywhere you looked. Josh Mann with Mann and Wife Events executed their wedding design PERFECTLY!! These guys are AMAZING to work with, and even secured the Smithfield Winery for us as an emergency backup plan for the rain in the forecast that day!! I wish we could go back and relive this wedding over and over!! I had the best time capturing this wedding for you both, Aaron and Carly! I love you SOOOO much, and thank you again for inviting us to be a part of your special day!!
