Kateri & Peter’s Arbor Haven wedding in Fredericksburg, Virginia was the perfect Fall celebration! The amount of joy that surrounded these two on their wedding day was incredibly heartwarming.
These two are the SWEETEST couple. Seriously, their love for one another and love for their families will put a smile on anyone’s face! Their day brought together all of the things I love about a wedding – an energetic bridal party, special family heirlooms, heartfelt speeches, and of course a good party to close out the night! With the guys dressed in sharp navy blue suits and the ladies in beautiful emerald dresses, they had the perfect Fall color palette.
We started the day getting ready at Arbor Haven before heading over to the church to meet the guys. Kateri and Peter’s traditional Catholic ceremony was beautiful and I loved capturing all of the joyful hugs and well-wishes that took place outside of the church after the ceremony. During the reception, I’m pretty sure everyone was on the dance floor for the ENTIRE night. These two are incredibly loved and their guests were more than excited to celebrate them!
Kateri & Peter, thank you so much for trusting me to capture such a special day for you. You both radiate love and joy! I hope you love your images and that they’ll be timeless reminders of the love that surrounded you on your wedding day.

She was so easy and calming to work with, as it was my first branding session. She led me throughout the way and the images are perfect! “
"I am certain that because Jontell got to know me and my brand up front, it allowed her to capture exactly what I wanted.
