Intimate Smithfield Elopement | Smithfield Wedding Photographer | Xavier + Karen

 Intimate Military Elopement | Smithfield, Virginia Wedding | Bride and groom portraits

While I love all the pomp and circumstance of a wedding day, there's nothing quite like an intimate elopement that makes me fall in love with photography all over again. Xavier and Karen wanted a simple, sweet ceremony that only involved their closest family as they began their journey together. They chose a private house in Smithfield at Cypress Creek Golf Course as the backdrop for a beautiful ceremony.

Each moment of their day was so special, but my favorite part is the way these two looked at each other - with full excitement, joy, and love for each other. They incorporated sweet moments into their ceremony that will truly be memorable. With Xavier in his dress blues and Karen in a gorgeous wedding down with the most amazing bouquet, forever has never looked better. Read on to see more beauty from their day.
