Sorella Farms Wedding in Lynchburg, Virginia || Gabe & Meghan's Central Virginia Wedding

Gabe & Meghan's Sorella Farms wedding day was so beautiful! It was a GORGEOUS fall day, the colors were starting to turn on the trees and their ceremony location overlooked the gorgeous mountains! Meghan is one of those brides that I wish I could clone. She's so sweet, super laid back, and truly lived in the joyful moments of her wedding day! 

Sorella Farms in Evington- right outside of Lynchburg- is such a gorgeous venue! Their Bridal Suite and getting ready room is the perfect space to hang out with your wedding party and get ready! Gabe & Meg's ceremony was STUNNING overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway! Right after the ceremony, the sky started turning dark gray and we quickly changed the timeline to get some photos of them together before it started to downpour. We moved SO fast and got through all of their couple portraits- just in time for the sun to come back out for family and wedding party portraits AND sunset photos with Gabe & Meg.  

Their reception in the Sorella Farms barn is gorgeous! Their reception space is so elegant and classy with draped white fabric, twinkle lights, and gold mirrors on the barn doors. It's gorgeous! 

Congratulations Gabe & Meg! We're so excited for you guys as you begin life together!

The Virginian Hotel Wedding || Emily's Bridal Portraits

Oh I have been so excited to share Emily’s bridal portraits with you guys! We took these back when hurricane Florence was hitting the east coast, and everyone’s wedding and portrait plans got thrown for a loop! So we last minute changed up some plans and took her bridal portraits at The Virginian Hotel in downtown Lynchburg.

It was THE perfect place for her portraits- Emily made such a classy bride- the marble staircase at The Virginian was just the perfect backdrop! AND the rain held off so we were able to head outside for a few, and explore some of the other rooms in Virginian (how cool is their library?!)

Thanks again Emily for trusting me with these portraits for you! You are such a stunning bride!


First Presbyterian Church of Danville and The Danville Golf Club Wedding || Josh & Nancy's Wedding

Josh & Nancy had such a gorgeous October wedding! Their day started at the First Presbyterian Church, where they had a classy ceremony and then they headed over to the Danville Country Club for dinner and a big reception. They had so many friends and family join them to celebrate the beginning of their marriage! After what seems like weeks of rain, it was the perfect day, gorgeous light, and overall the most fun day!

Nancy’s detail were simple, classic, and her dress was absolute perfection! Seeing her step into her dress with her hair and makeup done- goodness she was stunning! Everyone was speechless when she walked down the aisle!

After the ceremony, we explored a little in the downtown Danville area- and took some photos around the First Presbyterian Church and next door, at the Last Capitol of the Confederacy. We stopped by the HOME sign on the way to the reception, and then arrived at the beautiful Danville Golf Club.

The reception was SUCH a blast! SO many people dancing, laughing, and catching up! I love when you can just really tell how much a couple is loved by seeing how much fun their guests are having!

Congrats Josh & Nancy!! It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day!!

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!
