Our Lady of Hope and Trump National Golf Course Wedding Virginia | Grace and Alex

Grace and Alex’s wedding day was held during the late summer at Our Lady of Hope in Sterling, Virginia and Trump National Golf Course. God sure knew what he was doing when he brought Grace and Alex together, these two are the most perfect match!

Grace found me on Instagram and I was so excited when I got her inquiry! Photographers work constantly on their social media presence and it is always so rewarding when you meet amazing couples like Grace and Alex! The wedding morning began with Grace and her ladies at Trump National’s adorable bridal suite. Grace shared the sweetest first looks with her bridesmaids and her father and brothers. Keep scrolling to see how precious their reactions were, everyone was in tears!

When we arrived at Our Lady of Hope, Alex was awaiting his bride, rosary in hand. Right before Grace came upstairs to pray with him, he turned to the wedding coordinator and asked, ” When Grace comes up, do we have time to pray a rosary?” It was the sweetest! Alex held Grace’s hand in one and his rosary in the other and they prayed right before she walked down the aisle to him. I always love when couples share this moment together!

After their heavenly wedding mass, we returned to Trump National for portraits and were blessed with incredible golden light! The dusty blue bridesmaid dresses and classy black tuxes of the bridal party could not have paired better with the elegant grounds of Trump National Golf Course.

The candlelit reception was decorated to perfection with elegant centerpieces, gold accents, and of course….Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees bottles of wine! Grace and Alex were toasted with heartfelt speeches from their family, including Grace’s littlest brother! After the bride and groom shared their first dance, the dance floor was *packed* the entire night with the best dancers I have seen all year! I could not think of a better way to celebrate Grace and Alex becoming husband and wife!

Congratulations to the beautiful newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Bolton! Thank you for letting me share if your day and may God bless you both always!
