Christy & Greg | Sunset Crest Manor Wedding | Chantilly, Va.

Christy and Greg were married at Sunset Crest Manor on a patio overlooking a gorgeous valley, surrounded by their dearest friends and family. But what you really need to know is that they can do the entire last number from Dirty Dancing. They can and did. Best last dance number ever.

Sunset Crest is an absolutely gorgeous venue and, true to name, they do have a crest from which one can view the sunset.

Christy had a number of little girls underfoot to instill with dreams of their own weddings some day.

It was warm, but extremely mild for August – beautiful weather for a wedding and the outdoor cocktail hour that followed.
