So I can tell you how I feel before I go
Just a year, it’s not much time
For me to show you I am proud that you are mine”

A romantic, late summer wedding at The Old Silk Mill in Virginia, captured by Karen Allen Photography

The bridal suite was abuzz with activity when we stepped in, but Kristin was calm and collected as she prepped her make-up. As she stepped into her dress, her excitement was so obvious and contagious, as she threw up her arms and her smile just lit up her face! After the dress and shoes were on, and the veil was in place, I looked at her and said, “Are  you ready to meet your groom?” and the tears started flowing immediately. It was the absolute sweetest reaction I have seen to that question, and it made me love Kristin just that much more! The tears of joy, excitement, anticipation, and love just flowed freely all day long between these two, and it was beautiful!

After these two said their I do’s and the party officially started, it was immeditely evident that these two share a LOT of laughter, and have such a hilarious, fun-loving, great group of friends and family surrounding them! Kristin & Ryan, your day was perfect and such a fun party, and I am so honored that I was able to be a part of your day!! Congratulations!!!!

Thank you guys so much for capturing my daughter and new son’s special day. The pictures are absolutely stunning!

The pictures are beautiful. I am so happy for both of you. You make a wonderful couple. I wish you a world of happiness and many more years to come.

So much pretty! Seriously… those shoes and earrings… and the venue! I also adore the groom’s bowtie. Beautiful job Karen!

We were unable to attend the wedding but through your photos can see just how beautiful the day was! I couldn’t imagine having to choose an album from these! Truly a great job in capturing the essence of a beautiful couple on their wedding day!
