Everything. Absolutely everything was perfect for Kelly & Chris’s wedding day at Sunset Crest Manor in Chantilly, VA.  I can’t wait to share more.  It’s been so wonderful watching their love bloom since meeting at the Trinity Forum Academy and an honor to be there to capture the celebration with their closest family and friends.
