Lebanon, Virginia Wedding | Cherise & Stu

No one can really put into words how special the love between Cherise and Stu is. It radiates between them, exists in every glance, kiss, smile. They belong together, and everybody knows it. On September 24th, there closest friends and family got together to celebrate this amazing kind of love. They put together a wedding that, as Cherise puts it, was like a dream. A dream come true, of course. Much like their love.

Cherise - I've known you for a very long time. I've known your ups and downs, your awkward moments and your silly ones. And who you are right now? Well, you're simply gorgeous. I am so proud and so happy for you. Stu - you're her perfect match. You two should be together. I'm so glad you two fell in love with each other. Take good care of her. I know you will.

Thank you for letting Brian and I photograph your absolutely amazing wedding! Now sit down with a bag of Sour Patch Kids and enjoy... Love you both!... *Ariana*
