Rebecca and Brian were married at Saint Andrew’s Catholic Church during one of this winter’s many storms. The weekend made everyone a little uneasy with it’s forecast, ranging from 8-12 inches of snow to sleet and freezing rain. The timing of the storm was questionable as well… With guests from out of town a decision was made that the Friday night rehearsal (which we always come to!) would now be the ceremony itself! Arriving at the Hotel Roanoke 2 hours before the wedding we drove through an inch or so of slush on the streets of a deserted downtown Roanoke. We met the family and our hearts warmed (and knocked the chill off this cold day!) as we got to know Brian and Rebecca’s families in the suites they had booked at Hotel Roanoke.
It wound up being an absolutely beautiful ceremony at two of Roanoke’s most famous landmarks…
Rebecca, a beautiful bride!
The boys all ready to go, Brian has a very cool confidence…
The rings and bouquet were begging for attention
A stunning example of Victorian Gothic style…
A very proud father and a beautiful happy bride!
An adorable moment during the vows…
So happy and so cute!
How could I resist this image in this setting!
With sleet still pouring down we headed out onto the steps for a few images…
…and then to Hotel Roanoke for the rich dark luxuriousness of the Pine Room Pub
Where we captured some beautiful relaxed portraits of the newlyweds
…and one final image showing off Rebecca’s awesome style with her boots and wedding dress! Rock stars they are!!
One thought on “Rebecca and Brian – Wedding”
Thank you so much Michael for making our wedding day a little easier to plan. You and Angel both were wonderful and both of our families immediately felt at ease with you. The pictures are all beautiful. I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for a photographer in the future.
