Late Summer Wedding: THE PERFECT DAY Riverside on the Potomac | Christine and Jon
Updated: Feb 28
Just on the west side of the Potomac in Leesburg, Virginia sits this beautiful farm now a wedding venue, Riverside on the Potomac. Christine and Jon tie the knot as there guests hold on to the last drops of those summer nights! Britney Clause Photography captured all of the moments on this beautiful summer night!
"Best day of my life"-American Authors
Christine and Jon said there "I do's" and they recessed down the sunlit isle while Best day of my life by the American Authors played over the meadow. The bridal party and the newly weds were whisked off to take pictures and then join their guests at cocktail hour.
The first dance!
Immediately after introductions Christine and Jon went directly into their first dance with their bridal party as their backdrop. Fitting with the country atmosphere they chose Bless the broken road by Rascal Flatts as their first dance. As their guests finished their meals we kicked off the parent dances. Christine and Jon decided to share this moment with both of their parents by combining both the Father Daughter and Mother Son and they dance to Then they do by Trace Adkins.
With the barn doors wide open and the smell of the cigar bar being attended too, guests danced till the bitter end, while holding on to the last moments of summer. What a fantastic audience, the entire night was filled with jumping, signing and out right partying! This beautiful summer wedding faded away just like the new season coming but the memories of the moment lasted forever! All of the guests joined Christine and Jon on the dance floor while AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long played off into the summer night.
Christine and Jon ended their night the way it started, in each others arms. It truly speaks to how love can be showed in many ways. They are completely lost in the moment as if time had stood still, as their guests finished their parfaits and danced around them. This is what marriage is all about.

What the couple had to say:
"Andy will make your wedding memorable!
There are no words for how glad I am that we chose to hire Andy to DJ at our wedding. We did not have a wedding coordinator, but he helped with the schedule of events and details so we were able to enjoy our day and made sure we stayed on track. He knows how to get a party going — people raved about how much fun they had at our wedding and how they didn’t want it to end. There wasn’t a soul that wasn’t on the dance floor — young, old, kids, everyone! We Had a blast and all thanks to Andy’s expertise."
