Maggie + Joe’s Intimate Backyard Weddingwed

Maggie and Joe celebrated their backyard wedding with their closest friends and family on a cool autumn day in Virginia. The intimacy of their day was beautiful; only the people most important to them were there. Also, can I just say how much I love petal exits? Let’s have more of these, please.

I absolutely fell in love with these two when I shot their engagement session (we shared sake and talked about European culture, work life balance, and Game of Thrones) – they balance each other perfectly; where Maggie is spunky and outgoing, Joe is more calm and sensitive. But both of them are creative, driven, laid back, and delightful people. Maggie is an incredible clothing pattern designer, and made both of her stunning gowns (her bridal aesthetic – something between old Hollywood glam and modern romance was utter perfection)! And Joe was recently listed on Forbes 30 under 30 for his role at Loom, a video startup. But more than their talents and achievements, these two share a beautiful love. The way Joe looks at Maggie could melt a heart of stone.
