Shelby + Sean

Gary Melcher’s Belmont Estate l Fredericksburg Va Wedding Venue

Shelby and Sean.  These two truly fill my heart with so much happiness.  To see these two together is not only heart warming but they are SO fun, some of the most hilarious, outgoing people you will meet.  

I met Shelby through my Mom and I instantly felt as if we had been friends for years.  We talked via email and set up their time to take their engagement photos in Henrico, Va.  I finally was able to meet Sean as well and I enjoyed his outgoing, personable attitude.  He asked me a lot of questions and was free to share with me (again I felt as if I had known him for years), I guess thats the journalist in him.  It is awesome to meet two people who selflessly share themselves with you and genuinely care and want to know more about you. That isn’t something you find in a person so easily, especially in two people who happen to be getting married to one another! 

Their wedding day was filled with so many laughs, a little heat and a STUNNING venue.  Belmont Estates offers so much as far as portrait options! The beautiful main home, staircase, stone walls and gorgeous flower beds. It was as I get to say so much, a photographers dream! The reception had a golf inspired theme which was simply adorable! Each fine detail was absoutely perfect.  At the end of dinner Shelby’s father surprised the bride and groom with a video he spent many hours creating.  I don’t think I have laughed that hard ever in my life.  🙂

I hope you guys enjoy some of my favorites from Shelby and Sean’s big day! 

To one of my sweetest, most fun couples… I am so thankful to call you both friends! I wish you so many years filled with laughter and blessings! I know you guys have so many great times ahead!
