Jessica and Paul are like a breath of fresh air…down to earth, witty, fun to be around and they have a great sense of style too!  Once I met them, I understood more why they wanted me to photograph their session at Great Marsh Estate.  They both have a love of architecture and Paul is a true buff.  He not only carefully assessed the stone around the portico and made some pretty astute observations about the design of the 1980’s antebellum style estate.  The former AP Art History teacher in me was pretty excited to see their love of architecture!

Jessica and Paul were also just really fun to be around.  They can rock the romantic images and share such genuine laughter in so many as well.  And they are true Virginians at heart, sharing a love for all things Commonwealth.  I had a great time strolling around with them in very pleasant weather for an August evening!  I learned so much more about them and in fact, I’d love to share with you Jessica’s words on how they met:

Great Marsh Estate

“We first met at the McLean Community Center when Paul was running for the Community Center’s Governing Board, and the rest is history! For our first date, we went to the McLean Project for the Arts’ Spring Benefit and then the Tower Club in Tysons Corner (which is where we will be having our rehearsal dinner).  This was followed by Wolf Trap (which is where we will be having our reception) for several concerts the summer we first started dating. We’re best friends who share a love for AFI’s Top 100 movies of all time and the Commonwealth of Virginia. We’ve been together for almost 5 years and can’t wait to tie the knot!”

So how did he propose?

“He proposed on Christmas Eve at my parent’s house. After dinner, my parents slipped out to take the dog for a walk so he could ask me. When they came back we had champagne to celebrate!”

I can’t wait to celebrate with you this Fall at Wolftrap!  Congratulations Jessica and Paul!
