Felicia & Chip | Rockwood Manor Retreats and Events | Potomac, MD
One of the coolest aspects of meeting a bride and groom is learning about their love story. A lot of times, I end up really connecting with how clear it is that they were meant to be together. Chip and Felicia’s story is no exception.
They met on okcupid.com and dated for 9 years before they tied the knot! I think there’s so much value in putting in the time within your relationship prior to committing to each other forever. That part of their story is something I can really respect! Shoot, we got engaged 7 months after Mark and I started dating - military life is a wild ride.
On wedding days, I always try to find an ally - someone who I can go to when I need something or, more importantly, if the bride needs something. During the entire day spent at the beautiful Rockwood Manor, there was always someone there to help. They didn’t have one person there to walk them through one of the biggest moments in their relationship as a couple, but they had numerous people there! It’s such a reflection of who they are and I’m here for it!
Okay, so I know I’m laying it on thick about these two… but c’mon! These just might be my favorite first look photos that I’ve ever taken! … and you know what? They weren’t sure that they wanted to do a first look, but they trusted me and THIS IS EVERYTHING! Chip was able to have a moment when no one else was looking at him and he could just be in the moment with no pressure to be overly emotional and look at that reaction!!
Clearly, I could go on and on about them. However, I’m just going to let you relive their gorgeous wedding day via photographs! It was truly an honor to be their wedding photographer and I cannot wait to see what their future has in store!
