{Mark & Brianna} Duck Pond Amphitheater Blacksburg Wedding Photography

I’m not really sure where to start with these two.  You see I’ve had the honor of being apart of this girl’s life since she was 12 years old.  Her family welcomed my husband and I into their lives without skipping a beat.  We’ve shared so many life events together… weddings (mine!) church trips, confirmation Sundays, high school graduations, college graduations, proposals (you can see their proposal here!) the birth of my son and countless other birthdays and parties.  These are the type of people that remind you the definition of family hasn’t to do with blood at all.

Mark and Brianna’s wedding at the Duck Pond Amphitheater was more than I could have hoped for.  Not because of the perfect Blacksburg weather or lighting or even the enchanting outdoor setting (or  the fact that the officiant was my handsome hubby!)… but truly because of the heart of joy that this day was built on.  Mark is the type of man I’d be proud to see my son grow into and I can only hope my son will find as beautifully kind and loving a soul as Brianna.  I’ve never cried so many tears at a wedding (not even my own wedding!). From watching Mark’s reaction at their First Look to seeing Danny, Brianna’s Dad, crying at the sight of his daughter in her wedding dress, this day was full of tears of joy.
