Brittany + Matt | Staunton, Virginia Wedding Photographer

If you don't believe in love at first sight, you probably will after this story. A few years ago, Brittany was living in Florida, working as a manager for Michael's. She had grown up in Staunton so coming back to Virginia for a week to visit her friend was exactly what she had planned. What she didn't know was that her friend's boyfriend of that time had a roommate that she would end up meeting and falling in love with the night she came home. 

Brittany, her friend, her friend's boyfriend, and roommate were all getting together one night. Brittany looked to her friend after she noticed Matt and asked, "Who is that?" 

Her friend shrugged her off and said they wouldn't be a good match. Brittany followed her heart and went over to Matt to simply introduce herself. That's when she discovered she was going to spend the rest of her life with him. She just knew. Their connection was immediate and they spent the rest of the week together, dancing each night away and enjoying one another's company.

The end of the week rolled around and sadly, Brittany had to go back to Florida. But not for long. Brittany left her job, packed her belongings, got a UHaul, and came to surprise Matt, explaining that she had moved and was ready to start a life with him. She walked up to him from behind in a restaurant after she arrived in Staunton and as Matt turned around, their lives changed forever. 

Matt and Brittany are such a fun couple. From the first time I met Brittany in Starbucks, I knew without even seeing her with Matt that their love was special. I'm beyond honored I was able to share in their beautiful wedding day at Mary Baldwin! What a beautiful day it was! Matt and Brittany, thank you both for allowing me to witness your love on your wedding day! Enjoy some of my favorites!

Absolutely adored their rings!

Best first dance ever.
