Johnny & Ashton's Murray Hill Wedding || Leesburg, VA Wedding Photographer

Johnny & Ashton's Wedding was the perfect day of celebration! They got married the day before in the Temple in Baltimore, VA and then had their celebration with family and friends on Saturday at Murray Hill Events in Leesburg, Virginia. 

This venue is amazing! You would never know you were in the middle of Northern Virginia as you pull into the driveway of the estate. The house overlooks the Potomac River, and everything is surrounded in the most gorgeous greenery and just perfectly tucked away in the trees! The open-air barn has a touch of elegance mixed in with the rustic- it was perfect as Johnny & Ashton dined and celebrated with their friends and family members! 

Everything had a much more laid-back feel to it for Johnny & Ashton's wedding day. Because they were already married, we got to mix up the timeline a little and do Bride and Groom portraits first, then wedding party, and family last, before heading over their reception site for dinner and dancing! 

Thank you to the vendors that made this day so special!

Ross & Shelley: A Trivium Estate Wedding in Goode, Virginia

Shelley is one of those brides that I wish I could clone! She's so sweet & laid back, absolutely gorgeous and cannot take a bad picture! Walking into the bridal suite that morning, her and her friends were getting ready together, laughing and so joyful for their friends! There wasn't any tension or nervousness in the room, at all! Even as she stepped into her elegant gown and the clouds started rolling in, she took it in stride and made the call to move the ceremony to the backup plan. One of the great things about The Trivium Estate is that their ballroom is so beautiful, even with having to move to an indoor ceremony, you're getting a gorgeous setting! 

After the ceremony, we grabbed some clear umbrellas and headed outside. Luckily, the rain ended up stopping and we laughed and enjoyed our portrait time together. After dinner, we ducked quickly outside for a few minutes and were greeted with a gorgeous sunset overlooking the Peaks of Otter Mountains.

Sam & Larissa's Summer Wintergreen Resort Wedding

We all kept looking at each other all day and saying, "This is July, right?!" The sky was gray and getting darker as we drove up the mountain to Wintergreen Resort in Central Virginia for Sam & Larissa's wedding. These two specifically chose this location because they wanted an outdoor wedding on the mountain overlook, which is just the most unreal view. Somehow, the clouds seemed to clear up just in time for their ceremony! It was beautiful and their guests- who came in from all over the place, were able to enjoy the view and the temps in the low 70's! My kind of July wedding! 

As soon as the ceremony ended, we were able to get through the family portraits, the wedding party, and 4-5 Bride & Groom photos when it started POURING. We ran inside and shortened cocktail hour so Sam & Larissa could visit with their guests and get to dinner! The rain finally stopped, and when we went back out for our sunset photos, we were greeted with a thick, moody fog.  I typically am not a moody photographer, but oh my goodness- these moments between the two of them alone, were beautiful and so romantic! 

Larissa was SO laid back and happy all day- seriously my IDEAL bride! I love brides that are joyful and laid back! They're able to fully enjoy their day and not be stressed out by the little details! They hired an amazing team of vendors & were able to fully trust and be present in all the moments of their big day! 

Thank you to the AMAZING team of vendors that helped make this big day so great!

Weekend Update: Central Virginia Wedding Photographer

Happy Monday Friends! I know Mondays get a bad rap, and I understand- but I get so excited for Mondays because it's back to routine and I get to look through the fun wedding images from the weekend! And today, I am suuuuper thrilled to share the photos from this weekend's wedding! Sam & Larissa got married at the Wintergreen Resort, which is just about an hour from the Lynchburg area, and it's such a gorgeous place to get married! 

These two are just beyond cute together, and they were both so happy all day- and goodness it shows in their photos! I had the hardest time picking a few sneak peek photos to edit early this morning! The weather held off just in time for their ceremony to end before the clouds rolled in and it started pouring! The rain finally lifted & we went out for "sunset photos" which were more like fog photos- but oh my goodness was it beyond beautiful! I cannot wait for the full blog post later this week!

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!
