Dayton & Cara: A classic, backyard Cullen, Virginia Wedding

GUYS! I am so excited to share Dayton & Cara’s backyard wedding in Cullen, Virginia! Their day was SO perfect! I’m not even exaggerating when I say that! Usually there are some bumps along the way on the wedding day that we help guide and navigate through, but not yesterday! It was AMAZING!

I knew it was going to be an amazing day when we walked into the cutest getting ready Farm House, that was built by Dayton’s Great Grandparents, AND was recently perfectly renovated by his amazing parents— and was greeted with hugs, excitement, and all of the bridesmaids singing to each and every song that played! Cara had a pretty big wedding party- but oh my goodness- they all seemed like the best of friends and just so much fun!

Their ceremony overlooked the gorgeous pond between his parents and grandparents house. It was STUNNING. Every little detail was thought of! Their reception was set up in a tent in the hay field and guys- this group loved to dance! It was seriously such a FUN wedding day!

Congratulations Dayton & Cara! We had THE BEST TIME ever and I am not even joking when I’m forcing myself into your friends and having your Momma adopt me! <3

A BIG BIG BIG thanks to the amazing vendors that made this day so great!

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! 








Rustic Backyard Wedding in Eagle Rock, VA || Shawn & Kelsey's Clifton Forge Wedding

Let’s talk about the perfect Fall wedding day that Shawn & Kelsey had! Oh my goodness! After what felt like weeeeeeks of rain, their wedding day was sunny and beyond beautiful! There was the beginning of Fall chill in the air, and it really was just the perfect day!

Their day began at the most beautiful Hill Crest Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Clifton Forge, Virginia, where Kelsey got pampered with a mimosa bar, hair, makeup, and celebrations with her bridesmaids! Oh the bridal portraits we got on the porch there are to.die.for! The Southern Charm, I am just obsessed!

Their ceremony and reception was held on Shawn & Kelsey’s Farm and property- and guys, let me tell you! It was BEAUTIFUL! Tucked away in the middle of Eagle Rock, Virginia- there are mountain views every way you turn! Their friends and family gathered together to celebrate with them and they had a party! SO.MUCH.FUN.

Congratulations Shawn & Kelsey! What an honor it was to be there celebrating with you and your families!

Josh & Nancy: A downtown Lynchburg, VA Engagement Session

I love when a couple wants to do engagement photos in downtown Lynchburg! I love this little small town of ours and the downtown area has so much character and history! Especially with all of the revitalization going on! We got to explore some newly updated areas and then headed down to Percival's Isle for some photos with the Blackwater Creek Trail! 

Josh & Nancy are both teachers- he teaches middle school and she teaches Kindergarten in the Danville area! Bless them! So, we snuck these photos in before they went back to their classrooms and had a gorgeous night! They are the sweetest couple, and I cannot wait for their wedding this fall!

Cat's Bridal: Bedford, Virginia Bridal Portraits

It was POURING as I drove out to meet Cat and her Mom at The Historic Avenel in Bedford, Virginia. Is there a word for more than pouring? Because that's exactly what it felt like! I was certain I was going to make it to the venue and we would have to reschedule, or do all the photos inside. The Avenel is beautiful inside, so we could have totally made it work, but the outside is beyond gorgeous! But, oh my goodness, it was meant to be because as I pulled onto Avenel Avenue, the rain stopped and the sun started shining! It turned into a beautiful evening- not too warm, the light! It was a night meant to be photographed! I loved it! Cat looked absolutely gorgeous in her bridal gown, and we had so much fun around the gorgeous property!
