Rustic Backyard Wedding in Eagle Rock, VA || Shawn & Kelsey's Clifton Forge Wedding

Let’s talk about the perfect Fall wedding day that Shawn & Kelsey had! Oh my goodness! After what felt like weeeeeeks of rain, their wedding day was sunny and beyond beautiful! There was the beginning of Fall chill in the air, and it really was just the perfect day!

Their day began at the most beautiful Hill Crest Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Clifton Forge, Virginia, where Kelsey got pampered with a mimosa bar, hair, makeup, and celebrations with her bridesmaids! Oh the bridal portraits we got on the porch there are to.die.for! The Southern Charm, I am just obsessed!

Their ceremony and reception was held on Shawn & Kelsey’s Farm and property- and guys, let me tell you! It was BEAUTIFUL! Tucked away in the middle of Eagle Rock, Virginia- there are mountain views every way you turn! Their friends and family gathered together to celebrate with them and they had a party! SO.MUCH.FUN.

Congratulations Shawn & Kelsey! What an honor it was to be there celebrating with you and your families!

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.

Sam & Larissa's Summer Wintergreen Resort Wedding

We all kept looking at each other all day and saying, "This is July, right?!" The sky was gray and getting darker as we drove up the mountain to Wintergreen Resort in Central Virginia for Sam & Larissa's wedding. These two specifically chose this location because they wanted an outdoor wedding on the mountain overlook, which is just the most unreal view. Somehow, the clouds seemed to clear up just in time for their ceremony! It was beautiful and their guests- who came in from all over the place, were able to enjoy the view and the temps in the low 70's! My kind of July wedding! 

As soon as the ceremony ended, we were able to get through the family portraits, the wedding party, and 4-5 Bride & Groom photos when it started POURING. We ran inside and shortened cocktail hour so Sam & Larissa could visit with their guests and get to dinner! The rain finally stopped, and when we went back out for our sunset photos, we were greeted with a thick, moody fog.  I typically am not a moody photographer, but oh my goodness- these moments between the two of them alone, were beautiful and so romantic! 

Larissa was SO laid back and happy all day- seriously my IDEAL bride! I love brides that are joyful and laid back! They're able to fully enjoy their day and not be stressed out by the little details! They hired an amazing team of vendors & were able to fully trust and be present in all the moments of their big day! 

Thank you to the AMAZING team of vendors that helped make this big day so great!

Weekend Update: Central Virginia Wedding Photographer

Happy Monday Friends! I know Mondays get a bad rap, and I understand- but I get so excited for Mondays because it's back to routine and I get to look through the fun wedding images from the weekend! And today, I am suuuuper thrilled to share the photos from this weekend's wedding! Sam & Larissa got married at the Wintergreen Resort, which is just about an hour from the Lynchburg area, and it's such a gorgeous place to get married! 

These two are just beyond cute together, and they were both so happy all day- and goodness it shows in their photos! I had the hardest time picking a few sneak peek photos to edit early this morning! The weather held off just in time for their ceremony to end before the clouds rolled in and it started pouring! The rain finally lifted & we went out for "sunset photos" which were more like fog photos- but oh my goodness was it beyond beautiful! I cannot wait for the full blog post later this week!

Old Pate Chapel & The Bottling Company Wedding in Lynchburg, Virginia || Brad & Kaitlyn

Brad & Kaitlyn's Old Pate Chapel & The Bottling Company wedding was seriously SO unique and fun! They truly did make their wedding so unique! At our final consult, Kaitlyn said they made sure to look at each and every tradition to decide if they wanted to do that at their wedding and if they wanted to incorporate it at their wedding as well! They truly pulled it off- down to the morning ceremony and brunch themed reception food!  In our very first chat, she wanted to make sure they had a sweet & simple wedding to celebrate with their friends and family in unique ways. 

Brad and Kaitlyn met at Liberty University here in Lynchburg, Virginia their freshman year of college! They instantly became friends and were constantly hanging out! After some time, they started dating in their Sophomore year, and they've now been dating for four years! They're both adorable- we did their engagement photos over the summer at Sweet Briar College in Central Virginia! 

Brad & Kaitlyn did a morning first look at the Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg. I know it sounds strange to hear about photos in a cemetery, but this place is more like a historical park! It's gorgeous! Their first look moment was super sweet and really started the entire day on the sweetest note! Then, after their reception, they headed out to Sweet Briar College for some photos with the mountains in view. What a unique approach- but it was so perfect! 

I am SO excited to be sharing the photos from this gorgeous wedding!! A big thank you to my associate photographers Rhiannon & Leah for photographing Brad & Kaitlyn's big day! 

After their ceremony, reception, and fun bubble exit- they headed to Sweet Briar for some more Bride & Groom portraits! I LOVE this and hope more couples do this!!
