Their love began in Charlottesville, when Molly frequented her brother’s apartment to keep him company on weekends. There it was that she met his roommate, Craig, and slowly but surely her visits became less about her brother and more about Craig. When he finally came to realize he couldn’t go through life without her by his side, he pulled her atop the roof deck on a dinner cruise and proposed that she be his, now and always.

Their wedding day was so, so sweet. Perfectly elegant, perfectly them, and perfectly lovely. Their friends and family were overjoyed to see Craig & Molly tie the knot, and when the time came for an introduction to the reception there wasn’t a single person left sitting. The way he makes her laugh, the way she cares for him. Perfectly in sync, made for each other.

Craig & Molly, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for the honor of photographing such an important day in your lives. Your day was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever had the chance to witness and I’m so thankful to have been there to document your love! I hope Cancun is as relaxing as your dreamed and that you’re finding marriage to be better than you ever imagined.

The day began in the bridal suite of the Black Horse Inn
