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!

Trivium Estate Wedding || Lynchburg, VA Wedding || Ryan & Andrea

Oh these fall wedding days are so beautiful! The weather for Ryan & Andrea's Trivium Estate Wedding could not have been more perfect! It truly was the most gorgeous day- their ceremony overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains with the sunshine and the leaves starting to turn! 

Ryan & Andrea were so sweet & so excited to be getting married! They did a no peek around the corner that was so sweet and you could just tell how much they really wanted to turn around and see each other, but the moment when Ryan saw her walk down the aisle was so worth it! 

 

 



 

 

Central Virginia Wedding || Aaron & Lauren's Trivium Estate Wedding

Rustic Trivium Estate Wedding || Charlottesville and Lynchburg Wedding Photographer || www.ashleyeiban.com

Most February weddings in Virginia we have to worry about the chance of snow, but Aaron & Lauren totally lucked out with the weather this past weekend! We even got to take their family portraits outside! In February!!! 

Aaron & Lauren wanted a relaxed, country feel for their wedding and their rustic touches turned out perfect for their ballroom wedding ceremony, and their reception at The Trivium Estate.  This couple started out their day in the gorgeous, separate getting ready suites with their closest friends and family.  Their ballroom ceremony was so beautiful- special & intimate, followed by sweet moments outside for their couple portraits.  

Congratulations you two!! It was so much fun being a part of your big day!!

Wedding Day Details: What to Include

This is a talk that I always have with my couples.  And include in my wedding guide that all my couples receive.  And I send a reminder email to my brides before the big day.  So, you know it's a super important topic! ;)  Wedding day details!

I start my day off photographing the details.  I come in and say hi to the bride, give a big & excited hug, and then dive right into the details.  It's one of my very favorite parts of the wedding day, helps me warm up my creative side and get a feel for the entire day.  It really sets the stage for the look of the whole wedding.  I always love having the time to stylize and photograph everything from the dress, to the jewelry to grandma's special purse! 

One tip I give all of my brides is to collect all of your items before the wedding day and have them in one place! Assign the job to your Maid of Honor, or one of the bridesmaids to keep track of your box of details, so when I arrive, it's all put together and ready!

The most common thing that is missing when I arrive are the rings.  Make sure you communicate with your wedding party, Mom, officiant and/or wedding planner, as they will always tell you to hand over your wedding bands to the best man before your day begins.  It's actually better to hand it over during the wedding party portraits so that I can shoot some ring shots! The less time I have to spend tracking down someone and something, the better!

Staunton, Virginia Church Wedding || Central Virginia Wedding Photographer

It's difficult to even know where to start for this sweet wedding! Ryan & Rachel were seriously super sweet, and their gorgeous Fall wedding day was so perfect! The leaves were just starting to change colors, I was so excited to find a few spots perfect for photos with those golden yellows and oranges! All of their friends and family were so sweet, loving, and excited for these two! I love being at a wedding and feeling like a part of the family by the time I go home! 

Ryan and Rachel chose to do a "no peek" instead of a first look, and it was so sweet. They held hands around the corner and prayed together before walking down the aisle.  For our bride and groom portraits, these two walked through a field, through some trees, and even across the street to the rows of corn! I love when couples trust me and are up for anything and everything! And their photos turned out so well because of it!
