Autumn Trivium Estate Wedding || Bradford & Lauren

This Trivium Estate wedding was seriously perfect! I love Fall weddings- the light, the weather- it's all We left the night saying to each other how nothing seemed to go wrong the entire day! But that's not surprising to me considering all the amazing vendors set into place with the all-inclusive package that Lauren & Bradford booked with The Trivium Estate! 

The morning started with Lauren & her best friends in the bridal suite getting ready together and laughing together! And their ceremony was so beautiful! They chose to get married down at the gazebo overlooking the pond and the trees starting to turn! So gorgeous!! During their ceremony, they chose to plant a tree together- each providing dirt from their childhood homes. How precious is this?! I've never seen this as part of the ceremony, but I loved it! 

These two are both pharmacists and their chemistry was mentioned in their ceremony and the maid of honor reception speeches & you can see it when you watch them together! Smiling and Laughing all day! The best!! Their reception was a blast! The band did such an excellent job getting everyone up and on the dance floor the entire night!! A good band is so much fun at a wedding!

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!

Garden Wedding at Trivium Estate || Lynchburg Wedding Photographer

Mike & Haley's wedding was seriously such a dream! The day really was so perfect- everything from the weather- her hair, floral crown & dress, their ceremony, and their celebration with friends and family! All week we were watching the weather so intently- it was calling for a chilly, rainy day, but oh my goodness- Saturday was GORGEOUS!! This couple buried the bourbon and I'm now 100% a believer that it works! Every single couple should do this for their wedding day! 

Haley has a little bit of a hippie heart & I was so excited to see her dreams come to life with her wedding! Her floral crown and natural waves meshed perfectly with her gorgeous dress- and her bare feet for her day! Their pergola wedding was beautiful and seemed so intimate and fitting for her garden wedding dream! 

We took some amazing portraits up at the Pergola, and then headed down to the pond around sunset- it was gorgeous- I am obsessed!! 

Congrats Mike & Haley!! I'm so excited for you guys as you start your life together!! 

Thank you to the amazing vendors that made this wedding such a gorgeous success!

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! 

Lynchburg and Charlottesville Wedding and Portrait Photographer || Wedding Day Details by Ashley Eiban Photography || www.ashleyeiban.com

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! 

Lynchburg and Charlottesville Wedding and Portrait Photographer || Wedding Day Details by Ashley Eiban Photography || www.ashleyeiban.com
What to gather: 
* Dress & pretty hanger 
*Veil and/or hair piexes
*Full set of invitations (envelopes, RSVP card, maps, etc.) 
*Shoes
*Jewelry
*Perfume
*Bouquets (Brides and Bridesmaids) 
*Your something borrowed and something blue 
*ALL THREE rings 
*Anything else that's special and meaningful to you. Including a Bible, gifts to each other, cufflinks, etc.

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!
