You know those weddings that you see in movies? The ones with the perfect weather. The ones that are at a venue that make your mouth drop. The ones that have such animated guests. The ones where the bride and groom look stunning. This was one of those weddings, but in real life.
Lucas met Anna through her sister, Katie. Katie worked for the same company as Lucas, and part of their job description is to go overseas for a few months at a time. Every trip, Anna would send a copious amount of cookies. Because there were so many cookies, Katie would always share them with her coworkers (aka Lucas). At some point on the trip, Lucas inquired about the talented baker. Katie showed him a picture of Anna, and he thought she was quite the cutie. Some time after they came home, Katie and Lucas attended an Anti-Valentines Day party. Katie brought Anna (who brought a cake of course), and she met Lucas for the first time. They were apparently quite smitten with each other, because they started dating not too long after that party. And now? THEY'RE MARRIED!
Summer storms are a normal thing (especially on the East Coast). It gets hot and humid, and the sky just opens up. Last Friday was like that just 10 times worse. Friday, June 1, 2012 - The entire Northern Virginia and DC Metro areas were absolutely plagued by massive storms. Tornado warnings were popping up all over the place. When it wasn't raining, it was hot and muggy. I was so worried that the weather guy was wrong about the next day being much better and that it would storm the entire day again. (I never said that to anyone because I didn't want to jinx it.) Saturday, June 2, 2012 - It was sunny, 72 degrees, no humidity, and gorgeous. It stayed that way the entire day. It was absolutely perfect. I guess the weatherman occasionally gets things right.
Anna was the perfect bride. Completely laid back and stress free throughout the day. She looked absolutely breathtaking in her dress. Lucas looked dashing, and knew how to keep the mood light and fun. I don't think I could've asked for a better couple to work with and photograph.
