Melrose Cavern's Lodge Wedding in Harrisonburg, VA || Chase & Courtney

As we are all hunkering down expecting the winds and rains from Hurricane Florence to begin, here, in Central Virginia, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous wedding that somehow dodged the rain so Courtney could have the outdoor ceremony that she had been dreaming about!

Chase & Courtney’s wedding day began with a downpour, and we were certain the entire thing would be moved inside- even the amazing wedding planner moved the reception tables and set up the chairs for the ceremony. About 10 or 15 minutes before it was scheduled to start, the rain stopped and everything cleared up. Courtney decided to go for it, and oh my goodness, I am so glad she did as it didn’t rain for the rest of the evening!

The grounds at Melrose Cavern Lodge in Harrisonburg, Virginia were beyond gorgeous! It felt like we were at a wedding in a Disney Movie! Tucked away, surrounded by glowy lights and greenery with the most gorgeous arbor. I cannot wait to return!

Johnny & Ashton's Murray Hill Wedding || Leesburg, VA Wedding Photographer

Johnny & Ashton's Wedding was the perfect day of celebration! They got married the day before in the Temple in Baltimore, VA and then had their celebration with family and friends on Saturday at Murray Hill Events in Leesburg, Virginia. 

This venue is amazing! You would never know you were in the middle of Northern Virginia as you pull into the driveway of the estate. The house overlooks the Potomac River, and everything is surrounded in the most gorgeous greenery and just perfectly tucked away in the trees! The open-air barn has a touch of elegance mixed in with the rustic- it was perfect as Johnny & Ashton dined and celebrated with their friends and family members! 

Everything had a much more laid-back feel to it for Johnny & Ashton's wedding day. Because they were already married, we got to mix up the timeline a little and do Bride and Groom portraits first, then wedding party, and family last, before heading over their reception site for dinner and dancing! 

Thank you to the vendors that made this day so special!

Shawn & Kelsey: Eagle Rock Engagement Session

You guys! I am so excited to share this session with you! I may have driven into a ditch and had my car sideways on 3 wheels when I first met them (what an embarrassing phone call to a couple you've never met! ha!) but wow did we have a blast at their session! Everything about the night was so easy and we laughed so much! And to top it all off- they got into the stream on their property for the most romantic ending to a session ever! 

We did photos out at Shawn's property, which has been owned by members of his family in the past- and it was so great because he showed me some of the most beautiful spots and places around that he loved! Guys, I am not even kidding when I say this spot was beyond beautiful! Mountain Views, Weeping Willow Trees, tall grass, a stream, I was in heaven! And the best part is- they're having their wedding here!! Makes my heart SO happy!!

Josh & Nancy: A downtown Lynchburg, VA Engagement Session

I love when a couple wants to do engagement photos in downtown Lynchburg! I love this little small town of ours and the downtown area has so much character and history! Especially with all of the revitalization going on! We got to explore some newly updated areas and then headed down to Percival's Isle for some photos with the Blackwater Creek Trail! 

Josh & Nancy are both teachers- he teaches middle school and she teaches Kindergarten in the Danville area! Bless them! So, we snuck these photos in before they went back to their classrooms and had a gorgeous night! They are the sweetest couple, and I cannot wait for their wedding this fall!

Ross & Shelley: A Trivium Estate Wedding in Goode, Virginia

Shelley is one of those brides that I wish I could clone! She's so sweet & laid back, absolutely gorgeous and cannot take a bad picture! Walking into the bridal suite that morning, her and her friends were getting ready together, laughing and so joyful for their friends! There wasn't any tension or nervousness in the room, at all! Even as she stepped into her elegant gown and the clouds started rolling in, she took it in stride and made the call to move the ceremony to the backup plan. One of the great things about The Trivium Estate is that their ballroom is so beautiful, even with having to move to an indoor ceremony, you're getting a gorgeous setting! 

After the ceremony, we grabbed some clear umbrellas and headed outside. Luckily, the rain ended up stopping and we laughed and enjoyed our portrait time together. After dinner, we ducked quickly outside for a few minutes and were greeted with a gorgeous sunset overlooking the Peaks of Otter Mountains.
