Victoria and Wade’s Engagement Photos!

Posted by MeganH on Jul 01, 2009

A few months ago WeddingWire held a promotion with Northern Virginia Magazine in search of Northern Virginia’s Best Engagement Story. Among the many prizes awarded to our winning couple, Victoria Owens and Wade Gelbert, was an engagement photo shoot with acclaimed photographer and WeddingWire Vendor Genevieve Leiper. The shoot took place last week as the couple re-created the hike they took on their first date. How cute!

Victoria’s makeup was done by our very own WeddingAce, Victoria Stiles! She looks gorgeous!

Genevieve was kind enough to share her favorite photos with all of us!
