Although Tim grew up in North Carolina and Jen in Michigan, they seemed as though they had met so much longer than just 3 years ago. They were just out of college, had left their respective homes to take on a new independent lifestyles and start their careers in Portsmouth Virginia. Tim and Jen quickly became friends and a short while later, Tim decided to ask Jen out. These two work together with such happiness and ease it makes you stop to think, “Can a relationship really be that easy?”
Beautiful weather and wonderful guests blessed the couple on this lovely fall day at Belle Island State Park, in Lancaster VA.
Tim seemed to have two modes when the camera was on him, “smile” and “even bigger smile” and to him neither could quite convey just how happy he was to be tying the knot with his best friend. Jen got ready for the wedding upstairs in the Bel Air House, which overlooked the beautiful waterfront and ceremony site. She was calm and collected while getting her groove on with her bridesmaids as her mother and grandmother helped her into her HAND-MADE DRESS!!!! Jen spent months working on her dress and the intricacy and detail were beyond amazing. Once the dress was on, Jen went from a beautiful bride to a front page VOGUE stunner!
After the ceremony, we were able to sneak away for short portrait session on a quiet dock over the Rappahanock River. After Tim & Jen’s entrance, they spent the rest of the afternoon mingling with guests and dining on a BBQ pig grilled by Tim & the groomsmen. As the sun set, toasts were made and the dancing began. Everyone enjoyed an evening filled that was filled with love, joy and happiness.
Congratulations and best of luck Mr. & Mrs. Chase!!!
