John and Sophia // Culpeper, VA // Virginia Wedding Photographer

John and Sophia are the cutest couple! They had a very sweet ceremony at Family Christian Church in Culpeper, Virginia followed by a reception at Luigi's Italian Restaurant. Sophia's family wasn't able to make the trip to the U.S., but these two still had plenty of loved ones surrounding them for their special day! You can just see how excited John's relatives are to welcome Sophia into the family :)

Isn't Sophia gorgeous?! And I just love her dress!

Also this is probably the most beautiful church bathroom I have ever seen haha. Loved all the natural light coming in through the big windows!

Of course the guys getting ready involved a lot more goofing around than the ladies:)

If the church has a playground, you pretty much have to play on it, right? That's what it's there for!

Always one of my favorite shots - the groom's face when he sees the bride for the first time :)

These two were just smiling ear-to-ear the rest of the day!

The reception at Luigi's was so much fun! The food was absolutely delicious and there was sooooo much of it. There was even pizza! You can't go wrong with pizza :)  I live pretty close to Luigi's and can't believe I've never been there before. Will definitely be going back soon for dinner!

The best man gave such a great speech - tons of laughter from the guests :)  And of course there were stories about John being a fencer, as you can clearly see demonstrated by the butter knife/sword haha.

Their cake was beautiful! And tasty :) John and Sophia had a very sweet cake cutting - no smashing in each other's faces haha.

After dinner and cake, John and Sophia mingled with their guests the rest of the night. Everyone was having such a great time celebrating the bride and groom :)

Congratulations you two!
