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! 

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!
