John Marshall Ballrooms Wedding || Jack & Jodee's Richmond, VA Wedding

What a BEAUTIFUL wedding to start out my 2019 wedding season! Jack & Jodee got married at The Historic John Marshall Ballrooms in Richmond, Virginia and the day could not have gone better! Jodee’s getting ready room was so laid back, as her friends gathered around her to celebrate the big day with their glitter-filled champagne toasts and laughter.

Jack & Jodee had a beautiful first look moment and then got ALL of their portraits done before the ceremony! Event the family portraits and they joined their guests for their pre-ceremony cocktail hour! I loved that they decided to do this- it made their reception time so special as they were able to visit with each of their guests, and have lots of time for the dance floor!

Jack & Jodee- thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your big day! It was such an honor to celebrate with you both! What a STUNNING day it was!!!

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! 








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!!

Lenis & Becky's Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard Summer Wedding in Charlottesville, VA

Shooting a wedding at Pippin Hill Vineyards has been a bucket list venue for me to photograph a wedding at for such a long time, and I was finally able to cross it off my list this past weekend for Lenis & Becky's wedding! There are so many gorgeous wineries in the Charlottesville area, but Pippin Hill is one of my favorites! The view of the winery overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, the patio & tasting room, everything is beautiful- it was the perfect location for Lenis & Becky's wedding! 

Everything about their wedding was elegant and classy! From the staff handing out champagne and rose' as guests arrived for their wedding, Becky's stunning bridal gown, the ceremony on the lawn under the chuppah, to the gorgeous ballroom reception with a full band and the most amazing florals and the best dinner ever.

Lenis & Becky had such a sweet first look moment and we were able to get tons of their family and wedding party portraits done before the ceremony started! Their ceremony had a Jewish twist and was so touching and beautiful! The summer view of the mountains behind them was just perfection! And we also took advantage of some time during dinner and got some super romantic photos as the sun was setting! I am so excited to share this one with you guys! 

We LOVED working with the amazing vendors that made this wedding a stunning success!
