Braeloch on Glenburn Farms in Roanoke, Virginia Wedding || Josh and Caroline

 Saturday was my first wedding back from maternity leave and OH MY GOODNESS was it such a great wedding to come back to! It was so much fun jumping back into it- I really have missed the excitement of a wedding day! Plus, Josh and Caroline are the sweetest couple & just radiate how much they are in love with each other! I loved how Josh would steal a kiss from Caroline at every point that he could throughout the day and evening! 

They had their ceremony at the gorgeous Christ Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Virginia & her dress was THE perfect pick for a church ceremony, and she honestly looked like royalty! I loved all the special details that they incorporated- from the veil that has been passed down in her family and worn by over 10 other happy Brides, to the ring box that Josh's brother made from them out of the Christmas tree he proposed next to, the pearls that once belonged to her Grandmother, and so many other sentimental pieces. I just love when couples really make their wedding day their own with details like that!! 

After the ceremony, we headed out to the Braeloch at Glenburn Farms and Boxtree in Vinton, Virginia and were met with the most spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the city of Roanoke.  The weather was so perfect- not too hot, not too cold- we could have stayed out for portrait time forever! Such a dream!! The reception was such a blast- the band, The Finns by Sam Hill Entertainment had everyone up and dancing all night! 

Congratulations Josh & Caroline!! I am SO excited for you both as you begin your new life together! Marriage is such a blessing & I know you are both going to rock at it!! Enjoy your Hawaii Honeymoon!!! 


A special thank you to the AMAZING vendors from today!! Oh my goodness was everything so perfect!!

Downtown Roanoke Engagement Session || Bradford & Lauren

Oh my goodness I had such a blast with Bradford & Lauren for their engagement session!! We met in downtown Roanoke, where the two of them have recently moved and explored all of the gorgeous brick buildings and storefronts down there! These two are getting married at The Trivium Estate at the end of this month and I cannot wait! Their wedding is going to be SO gorgeous!! 

On the Glen at Glenburn Farms Wedding || Josh & Jenny

Oh my goodness am I SO excited to share this wedding today! Josh & Jenny have been dating since HIGH SCHOOL- and have survived through 11 years of dating, long-distance, college, and so much more! You really could just feel how thrilled they were to be at this point, and that their families were so glad to be uniting! Their wedding at Glenburn Farms was so beautiful! It was the most perfect fall weather, blue skies, and the mountain views! Seriously, picture heaven!! 

They had the sweetest no peek where they exchanged letters and a prayer with each other. I swear, I will never not cry in those moments! They are the sweetest!! I wasn't alone in my reactions seeing Jenny walk down the aisle and Josh start crying.  Then every time Jenny looked up at Josh during the ceremony she started tearing up.  Gah my heart!!

We snuck out for some sunset portraits after dinner and OH MY GOSH was it perfection! I swear I could have stayed out there forever with these two!! Their reception was SO much fun- literally everyone was on the dance floor- even Jenny's grandma got out there and danced with everyone!! 

Weekend Update: Roanoke, VA Wedding & Fall Mini Sessions

It's officially October, which means it's officially my busiest time of year! Shooting 7 weddings this month, and lots and lots of family sessions, means that there'll be a lot to share, yet not a lot of time to share it! I'm working on maintaining balance with my kindergartner and workload, which means that some things just aren't going to happen! I'm planning on writing a blog post about surviving the crazy, hopefully I'll get that written and published before the end of the month! ;)  

This weekend was so much fun! We had an amazing wedding in Roanoke, at Glenburn Farms in Vinton, Virginia celebrating Josh & Jenny! Their wedding was SO gorgeous I cannot wait to share their entire blog post!! 

I also held some Fall mini-sessions on Sunday afternoon! These can be exhausting, but also super fun because I get to meet some amazing families & update their family photos and this year was no exception! I'm so excited to share some of the photos from this weekend! 

Roanoke, Virginia Engagement Session || Josh and Jennifer

You guys- oh my goodness! For John & Jennifer's engagement session we headed back to where it all began- their grade school, where they attended school dances, played on sports teams together, and graduated. It was so amazing to step back in history with them- to hear their stories and see first hand where they ate lunch together, passed notes in the hallway and sat in class together! 

Luckily for them, the grounds around the school are seriously gorgeous, so we walked around, laughing, catching up, and got some awesome photos!
