Our Sunset Beach, North Carolina Vacation

Sunset Beach is a sleepy little beach town in southern North Carolina and it holds such a special place in our hearts. It was our first vacation location as a family- I still remember bringing Emmie- she was just learning how to crawl, and we had the best time. We've tried to make it back down there every year since, so we were both so excited when we were able to make it happen again this year! This year, my side of the family came along with us! 

It's true- bringing a little baby on vacation is challenging- and even more so challenging heading to the hot beach, but it's so worth it! We prepared for the heat with a portable fan, a beach tent, and cooling towels, sunscreen, hats, and so much more! Our car was packed to the brim, and amazing memories were made! 

Our last night out, I finally pulled my camera out and we took some family photos on the beach. Sully was exhausted and wasn't in his typical cheery mood, but we made it work & I'm so thankful we did!

James & Tresa: A Knights Gambit Vineyard Summer Wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia

When I first chatted with James & Tresa last year about their Knight's Gambit Vineyard wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia, I knew it was going to be an amazing day! And then after we took their engagement session last fall (view their Sweet Briar Autumn engagement session here!) I had been counting down the days! They initially fell in love with Knight's Gambit from the gorgeous location (OMG the views there!!) and after talking with the owners they knew they wanted to get married there! They really wanted a wedding location that was in nature, and had a laid back and family friendly feel- they found the perfect fit! 

James & Tresa initially met on Match.Com! Their first meeting they went on a short walk, that turned into over 3 hours talking and walking about Lake Elkhorn. They absolutely love going on adventures together, from hiking and camping, boating, biking, and even making adventures out of laying grass seed or making dinner. They really know how to have a blast together, out of the big and little moments! 

They were so excited to include all of their family in the wedding- including all of their nieces and nephews (10 kids in the wedding party alone!!) Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the vineyard and mountains, and their tent reception made everything feel intimate! This wedding was so gorgeous, fun and I'm so excited for these two!!

John & Yulanda: A Tresca on 8th in downtown Lynchburg, Virginia Wedding

John & Yulanda's Wedding day started in Appomattox, Virginia at their family church. Surrounded by their amazing group of family & friends, they said their vows & became husband & wife! After that, the celebration headed to downtown Lynchburg, Virginia where they had their reception at the gorgeous Tresca on 8th! 

I loved Yulanda's choice of accessories & her dress was amazing!! The blush pink tones of her dress were accented with the beading of her veil, her shoes, and her bridesmaids dresses! They have such an amazing group of friends and family that were there celebrating with them! Just seeing their large wedding party itself showed how loved these two are! The church was packed and the reception was full of hugs and celebration! 

Thanks to the amazing vendors that made this day so perfect!

Intimate Sherando Lake Wedding || James & Claudia

James & Claudia planned the most perfect wedding celebration! They decided to do an elopement-style at a place that was near and dear to their hearts, Sherando Lake in Central Virginia. They had only the closest family members and friends there with them, and wait until you see the views! When we were there for their engagement session, they talked about how they just wanted a relaxing day to celebrate while feeling like they were at a back-yard BBQ and man, did they pull it off- plus they had a food truck serving dinner for everyone! YUM!!

Braeloch on Glenburn Farms in Roanoke, Virginia Wedding || Josh and Caroline

 Saturday was my first wedding back from maternity leave and OH MY GOODNESS was it such a great wedding to come back to! It was so much fun jumping back into it- I really have missed the excitement of a wedding day! Plus, Josh and Caroline are the sweetest couple & just radiate how much they are in love with each other! I loved how Josh would steal a kiss from Caroline at every point that he could throughout the day and evening! 

They had their ceremony at the gorgeous Christ Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Virginia & her dress was THE perfect pick for a church ceremony, and she honestly looked like royalty! I loved all the special details that they incorporated- from the veil that has been passed down in her family and worn by over 10 other happy Brides, to the ring box that Josh's brother made from them out of the Christmas tree he proposed next to, the pearls that once belonged to her Grandmother, and so many other sentimental pieces. I just love when couples really make their wedding day their own with details like that!! 

After the ceremony, we headed out to the Braeloch at Glenburn Farms and Boxtree in Vinton, Virginia and were met with the most spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the city of Roanoke.  The weather was so perfect- not too hot, not too cold- we could have stayed out for portrait time forever! Such a dream!! The reception was such a blast- the band, The Finns by Sam Hill Entertainment had everyone up and dancing all night! 

Congratulations Josh & Caroline!! I am SO excited for you both as you begin your new life together! Marriage is such a blessing & I know you are both going to rock at it!! Enjoy your Hawaii Honeymoon!!!
