Our baby shower || Trivium Estate Baby Shower in Lynchburg, Virginia

OH MY GOODNESS you guys!! This weekend was oh so good and I feel overwhelmingly blessed. Our Lynchburg friends - turned family - threw us a baby shower and it was beyond fun. Seeing all these people that mean so much to me, who love me & my family, and really are our village & love and help us in so many ways.

Heidi, from the Trivium Estate was so sweet in hosting the shower. The Trivium is one of my all-time favorite wedding venues, and it was so amazing to be there and celebrating our little guy! It’s always so beautiful there, but my goodness they went so over and beyond for our set up. And oh my gosh you guys- stereotypical pregnant lady thing to say- but the food! Sooooo good! They even knew my love of cannolis and had Jennifer, from La Bella Torta, make some homemade. And let me tell you- they were freaking amazing! A huge thank you to my sweet, sweet friends Sarah & Micah, who planned everything. I can't even describe how loved I feel. 

We are truly blessed with the most generous friends and family who completely spoiled us rotten with all the goodies to be a little more prepared for a new baby! So many adorable, teeny-tiny outfits, diapers, and baby gear! I’m finally feeling more prepared for our little guys arrival! We’ve got about 6 more weeks left- give or take, which is insane. Feels like forever away, yet that it will be here so soon! Now to go finish organizing the nursery, folding the most adorable little baby clothes, and probably take a nap as well! ;) I can’t wait to share photos from his nursery soon!

(A big thank you to Jenny & Rhiannon for grabbing my camera and snapping some photos during the shower too! SO thankful to have these!!)

Oh these fall wedding days are so beautiful! The weather for Ryan & Andrea's Trivium Estate Wedding could not have been more perfect! It truly was the most gorgeous day- their ceremony overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains with the sunshine and the leaves starting to turn! 

Ryan & Andrea were so sweet & so excited to be getting married! They did a no peek around the corner that was so sweet and you could just tell how much they really wanted to turn around and see each other, but the moment when Ryan saw her walk down the aisle was so worth it!

Spring Trivium Estate Wedding || Chris & Katie's Forest, Virginia Wedding

Ohhhhhh the beginning of my spring wedding season started out so perfectly with Chris & Katie's wedding at The Trivium Estate in Forest, Virginia.  Their day was so filled with love from all of their friends and family- and Chris truly had us laughing the entire day with his excitement and nerves of the day! 

These two started off the day surrounded by their friends and close family members while they were getting ready. Seeing Katie step into her beautiful dress and the smiles and tears on her bridesmaids faces totally melted my heart! But the true emotional moment was their first look! They decided to exchange letters right before and both of them started tearing up reading them, which means I totally did as well, luckily I have a camera to hide behind! ;) 

Their pond ceremony was beautiful and the rain held off! They buried the bourbon before their big day, and it totally worked- somehow the rain clouds shaded everyone the perfect amount, but there was no rain! We headed out for sunset portraits and oh my goodness they are beautiful!! So excited to share their big day today!!
