I'm so excited to share this blog with you!!! Christin and Dave's had their ceremony and reception at one of my favorite venues - River Stone Manor. Not only is this place absolutely gorgeous, but Ed and I had our own wedding at River Stone. I always love going back to this place!! Skip and his staff, as always, out did themselves - everything was amazing!!

When we met up with Christin at River Stone, she and her ladies had already been beautified by the very talented crew at Make Me Fabulous. These ladies do amazing work (they even worked magic at my own wedding)!

We had a little time to shoot some details before Christin got into her dress; check them out!

Christin and Dave had their reception in the Terrace Tent, which is just near the river. The details inside were beautiful!

About a month after Dave and Christin tied the knot, we met back up with them to do another session. Originally, the plan was to trash Christin's dress, but it was just too darn beautiful, so Christin just rocked it, looking as gorgeous as ever! Here are some of our favorites from that session.
