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! 








Weekend Update: Stir-Crazy, Nesting, and A normal weekend || Lynchburg, VA Wedding Photographer

We were all feeling a little stir-crazy with the amount of time that we've been stuck in the house between holidays, and snow days, so this weekend, I had to get out of the house. Even to just wander the aisles and not see the walls in my own house. I am so beyond ready to get back into routines- even if that does mean waking up early to get Emerson to school in the mornings. ;)

Once we got that out of our system, we were able to get some work in the nursery done, and work on some of my January goals for 2018- really simplifying the things that are in our home & finding a place for everything! I've had to take it slow due to some health things- baby bump sometimes has different ideas for what we can do in a day than I'd like, but we're making real progress and I love seeing the house really come together after such a busy season when we moved in! 

I'm really loving our slower weekends as a family & being able to do things together as a family. It's a nice reminder after a crazy fall season where I have weddings and photoshoots almost every weekend.  This is what normal people do on the weekends! haha! 

I really want to know- what did you do this weekend? Are you a stay at home in your jammies weekender, or do you pack in all the plans and errands for the weekends?!

Lynchburg, Virginia Fall Wedding || Levi & Chelsea's Wedding at The Trivium Estate

Guys! My wedding season for 2017 wrapped up last weekend and OH MY GOODNESS! It was a perfect wedding to wrap up my year! Chelsea & Levi got married overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains at The Trivium Estate, in Forest, Virginia.  It was a chilly day, but so worth it! The views, the last remaining trees with fall colors- heaven!! They provided blankets, hot chocolate & cider for their guests while they exchanged vows! 

Chelsea & Levi seriously made this wedding 100% theirs! I mean- wait until you see her engagement ring to know that she's not your fully traditional bride, which I loved! They really personalized things to make it exactly what they wanted for their big day! Her bridesmaids all wore different color jewel tones for their dresses, they included their dog Skully in their first look photos, and they even had a cookie table at their reception! 

Levi & Chelsea knew photos were a priority for them, and my goodness were they troopers! As the sun started to set, the chill really set in, but neither of them complained once! We pretty much couldn't feel our fingers by the end of their portrait time, but we all warmed up quickly inside the gorgeous reception hall where all of their guests were dancing and having a blast! 

I am so excited to share these gorgeous photos! Her details, this dress, and their love for each other made this day such a dream for me! Thank you Levi & Chelsea for choosing me and hand designing the perfect wedding day to wrap up my season!! I hope you are having a blast on your winery honeymoon in the mountains!!

Trivium Estate Wedding || AJ & Kimberly classic, fall wedding day

Everything about AJ & Kim's wedding day was so beautiful and classy! From her gorgeous venue at The Trivium Estate, that ahhh-mazing gown, the gorgeous florals, and her super sweet groom, that had a smile on his face all day. 

I know you've heard this before, but AJ & Kim just radiate their love for each other! It's so inspiring to be around a couple that is so happy and joyful- and you could just tell from all of their friends and family there for the day! These two needed no direction from me, they just automatically cuddled up together, laughed, kissed, and got lost in the moment. I was in portrait heaven with these two- I wish we had another hour for portraits! ;) 

Their first look was stunning & so sweet! AJ surprised Kim with the most thoughtful gifts and notes, and he was almost speechless when he saw her put together in her dress! Ahh So sweet! I've been so excited to share these photos with you guys! 


Keswick Vineyard Wedding || Andrew & Melissa's Fall Winery Wedding Day

I've been SO excited for Andrew & Melissa's wedding from our first Skype call! When they were telling me about their plans for their autumn wedding at Keswick Vineyards, I knew they were going to be a such a fun couple! They really wanted their photos to show not only their love for each other, but the joy and excitement for their big day! We all had a blast at their Oktoberfest-themed reception, which included the most amazing German food ever! You really can tell how much they love each other & how happy their friends and family were for them! 

Keswick Vineyard is seriously a stunning venue- it's so perfect for a wedding! Their bridal suite, the grooms room, complete with a pool table and the patio are so perfect for starting out the big day! Andrew & Melissa chose to have their ceremony site overlooking the mountains & gorgeous vineyard.  There are SO many amazing spots for photos here- between the pool, the vines, the house, the pond, I mean, everywhere you turn is another amazing portrait location!! 

The amazing vendors that made this gorgeous wedding day so successful!
