Weddings that Give Back: Megan & Joe- Leesburg, VA

Today’s wedding is not only stunning, but most importantly, it is incredibly impactful. The couple chose to use their wedding day to serve others by donating to The Fisher House (and Young Life). Fisher Houses provide military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury. brandilynn_aines_photography-9922 Our amazing vendor, Brandilynn Aines Photography documented their day and has a shared heart for non-profits serving the military. She uses her wedding & portrait services to donate and bring awareness to soldier suicide & mental illness. She is a surviving daughter of soldier suicide with a step-dad who suffered from PTSD & Bi-Polar Disorder. She wants to bring more awareness to others who may have no connection to the military or someone who suffers from mental illnesses. It’s a serious issue that our country is facing and there needs to be more awareness brought to help stop this tragic epidemic. As far as local and globally giving back, there are local chapters in the organization called Stop Soldier Suicide, as well as National Chapters. Giving has been a pretty positive impact on her business through getting to know more military families and teaching people about this issue. brandilynn_aines_photography-9947brandilynn_aines_photography-3259brandilynn_aines_photography-3098brandilynn_aines_photography-3119 brandilynn_aines_photography-0317brandilynn_aines_photography-0217brandilynn_aines_photography-0889brandilynn_aines_photography-6957brandilynn_aines_photography-6942 brandilynn_aines_photography-9969brandilynn_aines_photography-0026 brandilynn_aines_photography-0073 brandilynn_aines_photography-0756 brandilynn_aines_photography-0784 brandilynn_aines_photography-3328 brandilynn_aines_photography-3365brandilynn_aines_photography-0137   brandilynn_aines_photography-0373 brandilynn_aines_photography-0431 brandilynn_aines_photography-0437 brandilynn_aines_photography-0543  brandilynn_aines_photography-3238brandilynn_aines_photography-3406brandilynn_aines_photography-0927 brandilynn_aines_photography-0877 brandilynn_aines_photography-0610 brandilynn_aines_photography-0613brandilynn_aines_photography-0958      brandilynn_aines_photography-6889 Photography: Brandilynn Aines Photography // Venue: Raspberry Plain // Florals : Terri David / terridlax@yahoo.com // Hair: Monica Mather / salofleurdelis@yahoo.com // Makeup:  Jordan Ward / Jordan@glambarmua.com// Videographer: Chris Hall-Tipping / p.703.303.6408 // DJ: DJ Phlipz // Cake: Niko Cakes, Laura Siko // Catering: Dianna Gilbert / dianna@rrcatering.com // Bridesmaids Dresses : After Six // Groomsman Attire:  Men’s Warehouse // Invites: Jesse Wells / jesskawells@gmail.com // Cigar Rollers: Cortex Cigars// Charities supported: Donations made to The Fisher House and Young Life
