Belmont Country Club in Ashburn Virginia has the most beautiful dressing room for brides. The large window lets in beautiful light that shows off that bridal glow. As a wedding photographer I know that it is so important to plan the day so the bride has beautiful portraits of herself after she's dressed and read. She may never feel as beautiful as she does this day. And I want her to have the pictures to remember that feeling. This bride was stunning in her ballgown and side-swept hair style. Her makeup was perfect. Her jewelry the right touch not to compete with the beaded bodice but to show her personality. Everything came together just right - which is why hiring the right people for hair and make up is so important. Right after choosing the right dress. I love a ballgown. It's always flattering, makes you feel like a princess and is oh so fun to wear and photograph! The soft creaminess of the colors in this picture are so flattering to the brides porcelain skin and blond hair. This is one of my very favorite bridal portraits. It tells a story all by itself. As she gazes at herself and imagines the life she is beginning. Choose a wedding photographer who can gets you and who you are, and can make you feel beautiful. If you're looking for a country club wedding venue with a classic mansion, outdoor ceremony space and room for amazing pictures, Belmont Country Club is the best wedding venue.
