They say that your vibe attracts your tribe and this gorgeous Virginia wedding, captured by David Abel Photography, proves that beautiful people stick together! Full of love, laughter and their closest friends and family, Justine and Francis's wedding is utterly romantic and exceptionally pretty. Created by some incredibly talented vendors these two, truly had, the picture perfect wedding!

From photographer David Abel: Justine + Francis‘s wedding was filled with so much happiness. Despite the rain pouring down for most of the day the spirits of this couple, their family, and their AWESOME bridal party were as high as one could get. It was the type of wedding that I couldn’t help but smile the whole time through because I was surrounded by people doing the same, it was a contagious happiness, the type of wedding that if you attended you wouldn’t’ be able to not have a great time. The love these two had for each other was truly something to behold. Francis is endlessly devoted to Justine, over the top, above and beyond in love with her. If he could sing it from the rooftops he would, and at the reception he did, serenading her with a song in front of everyone (Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran). He loves Justine the way fathers hope their daughter will be loved (honestly and without reservation). Justine who lights up every time Francis is near is so kind hearted and genuine, possessing grace and elegance in any situation. She has a subtle and soft touch with her love, where the small gestures mean the most. Together these two are SO in love and to be able to witness it and document it was such a privilege.
