Christen + Josh: Sunshine and Smiles

This wedding is already a few years past, but the lush green grass and summer sunshine just really brought a smile to my face. And with the first day of summer finally here, what better way to celebrate then with a bright July wedding at the Belle Grove Plantation in Virginia?

Christen Orndorff and Josh Palmer were married on July 7, 2007 in Middletown, Virginia, United States.

From the photographer:

Belle Grove Plantation proved to be the perfect backdrop for this 7-7-2007 wedding — one of THE most popular dates of the year. The sky was the bluest of blues, the fields surrounding were the greenest of greens and the girl’s were pretty in pink — just our favorite shade, too!!

With her porcelain skin and bright blue eyes, Christen looked like a doll in her exquisite dress from Anna-Joy’s — we really loved the pink sash!

But the highlight of the day for us was watching Josh and Christen — it’s clear that these two are very much in love. I love a groom that shows how he REALLY feels — and watching the love and emotion on Josh’s face as Christen walked down the aisle, well, it always makes me get a lump in my throat. And kudos to Brett, the BEST best man for having a handkerchief available.

Josh and Christen, best wishes for a long life full of laughter and love!
