Kara & Michael | Foxhall Wedding Pictures

Wow. Take a seat as this is a blog post you're going to want savor. Kara has exceptional taste and the way all the details of her wedding came together were absolutely incredible. From the invitations (by Hi Note), to the floral, ceremony and reception design (by Andy Beach & Co.) I don't think her wedding could have been any more perfect or beautiful! Foxhall Sporting and Event Club is my favorite venue and I was so excited to return for this wedding. The day they had an "adult field day" for their wedding party and I was there to capture the action... those pictures will come soon. There were some of the most heartwarming toasts I've heard in a long time shared at their rehearsal dinner and I'm excited to share that story and those moments soon as well.

These two were an absolute dream to work with. I know I say it often but I'm so incredibly blessed to have the most loving, beautiful, thoughtful, kind hearted, selfless and incredible couples that I get to call friends. It's such a blessing to be a part of these wedding stories and it means more than words can say when I see the genuine excitement and aww they have when they get to see their pictures and love come to life.

Everyone spent the night on property. The original cabin had been booked so we got to visit the owner's home. It was incredible and I'm so glad he was kind enough to open up his home to this group. The home was in good hands and I know Kara and Michael were equally appreciative.

Guys- standing witness to the way you love one another was such an honor and I am so excited for you to live through the moments, details and beauty of your wedding day the way we witnessed it. I can't wait to see you both again and wish you many, many happy years ahead!

My favorite detail was the inner envelope of her stationary suite. 21_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures

Such a beautiful setting for her dress.

I remember the day when Kara said Michael wasn't much of a "picture taking kind of guy". We'll just say that was before he met me. Love these shots of him and it took all of about 90 seconds. 230_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 232_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 234_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 236_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 241_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures

The view is absolutely incredible. It's one of the many reasons I love Foxhall so much but the site design and gorgeous arch Andy did took it up a notch and made it absolutely breathtaking.   468_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 469_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 473_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 475_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 477_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures

This should only be done by professionals. Kara loves cheer and currently coaches a high school team while her sister is the cheer captain at Georgia. Needless she wanted to do a "stunt" picture, even on her wedding day. :)621_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 625_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 629_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures 632_foxhall_wedding_outdoor_fall_wedding_andy_beach_hi_note_a_divine_event_tessa_marie_weddings_photography_wedding_pictures
