Few things are as magical as a wedding day, and Ali and Susan’s celebration at Morais Vineyards & Winery in Bealeton, Virginia, was truly one for the books!
Our day began with Susan and her bridesmaids sharing laughter and joy as they helped her prepare. An application of natural brown eyeshadow to complement Susan’s eyes was a focal point of her elegant bridal beauty look. Her elegant A-line wedding gown was adorned with delicate lace, pearl beads, and a grand, flowing veil. She absolutely radiated as she held her bouquet of white roses and blue delphiniums.
In Ali’s room, he and his groomsmen were gearing up for the big day. Ali looked sharp in a matte steel-blue wedding suit with a white rose boutonniere. What made this morning particularly heartwarming was the personal letters they wrote for each other to read before the ceremony and their first look
The eagerly awaited first look between Ali and Susan took place at the enchanting peacock-colored wrought-iron solarium on the vineyard grounds. Did you know it was originally commissioned by Disney and ended up here at Morais? Like I said… magical! After this private and tender moment, we captured special moments with close family and dear friends, with infectious smiles and heartfelt kisses.
The outdoor ceremony took place at the vineyard’s pergola overlooking a serene lake, creating a stunning backdrop for their vows. Their officiant’s heartfelt words and humor brought joy to everyone present. A sweet kiss sealed their vows, and they were officially married!
Now, onto the reception… but hold on, this wedding was so incredible that it deserves a second part! You can see the second part of Susan and Ali’s unforgettable celebration here.
