Delfosse Vineyard & Winery Wedding || Brandon & Rachel's Charlottesville, VA Wedding

Saturday’s wedding was beyond amazing. Delfosse Vineyard and Winery in Faber, Virginia is STUNNING. I love these Virginia wineries and the view from Delfosse is unparalleled! I can’t wait to go back for a personal trip- I’m dying to try the wine there next time! ;)

Brandon & Rachel’s wedding day was stunning! These two are so sweet & laid-back, it was such a blast! Walking in, the girls were getting their hair and makeup done on the front porch, and just having the best time together! They had the sweetest first look, and their ceremony overlooked the Delfosse Vineyard and Mountains. So gorgeous!

Brandon & Rachel! I am SO excited for you guys and am so honored to have been a part of your wedding day! What a special time! Enjoy your honeymoon! I’m just slightly jealous! ;)

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! 

Dani & Cj || Engagement session at Historic Meems Bottom Covered Bridge

I first met Dani when I traveled to Fort Walton, Florida this past January and instantly loved her! She's so sweet & bubbly, so I was beyond thrilled when she reached out to me to shoot her wedding! Dani & Cj are getting married next spring in the Harrisonburg area, so when they were in Virginia for his sister's wedding, we knew it was the perfect time to take advantage of the time for an engagement session! 

Cj grew up in the Harrisonburg/ New Market area, and suggested doing their engagement session at the Historic Meems Bottom Covered Bridge and the battlefield that has tons of history for him with college. It was a gorgeous location, I could have stayed for hours and hours taking photos of these two! 

Sierra Vista Mountain View Wedding || Central Virginia Wedding Photographer

Ben & Brooke's wedding day was so beautiful & perfect. They started out the day with mimosa's in Sierra Vista's brand new bridal suite- which is SO gorgeous! Everything about this new room is perfect! Brooke had such a gorgeous dress picked out- the layers of tulle and the amazing back on this thing!! 

These two were so cute- they had the sweetest no peek moment, where they shared letters, gifts, tears, and some hugs. They were so excited, but didn't even want to say goodbye to go back in hiding until the ceremony. All day long Ben would sneak a kiss from Brooke, without knowing anyone was looking. For portrait time, I didn't even have to direct them- they would just snuggle up and were seriously so cute! 

All week, they were calling for rain and thunderstorms on Saturday and somehow their day was PERFECT. The sun was shining, there was a little bit of a breeze, and a beautiful blue/purple sky for when we went out for sunset portraits! I am so excited to share Ben & Brooke's wedding day with you today!! 

I cannot say enough about the vendors that stepped up and made this day so perfect for this sweet couple!
