First Presbyterian Church of Danville and The Danville Golf Club Wedding || Josh & Nancy's Wedding

Josh & Nancy had such a gorgeous October wedding! Their day started at the First Presbyterian Church, where they had a classy ceremony and then they headed over to the Danville Country Club for dinner and a big reception. They had so many friends and family join them to celebrate the beginning of their marriage! After what seems like weeks of rain, it was the perfect day, gorgeous light, and overall the most fun day!

Nancy’s detail were simple, classic, and her dress was absolute perfection! Seeing her step into her dress with her hair and makeup done- goodness she was stunning! Everyone was speechless when she walked down the aisle!

After the ceremony, we explored a little in the downtown Danville area- and took some photos around the First Presbyterian Church and next door, at the Last Capitol of the Confederacy. We stopped by the HOME sign on the way to the reception, and then arrived at the beautiful Danville Golf Club.

The reception was SUCH a blast! SO many people dancing, laughing, and catching up! I love when you can just really tell how much a couple is loved by seeing how much fun their guests are having!

Congrats Josh & Nancy!! It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day!!

Melrose Cavern's Lodge Wedding in Harrisonburg, VA || Chase & Courtney

As we are all hunkering down expecting the winds and rains from Hurricane Florence to begin, here, in Central Virginia, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous wedding that somehow dodged the rain so Courtney could have the outdoor ceremony that she had been dreaming about!

Chase & Courtney’s wedding day began with a downpour, and we were certain the entire thing would be moved inside- even the amazing wedding planner moved the reception tables and set up the chairs for the ceremony. About 10 or 15 minutes before it was scheduled to start, the rain stopped and everything cleared up. Courtney decided to go for it, and oh my goodness, I am so glad she did as it didn’t rain for the rest of the evening!

The grounds at Melrose Cavern Lodge in Harrisonburg, Virginia were beyond gorgeous! It felt like we were at a wedding in a Disney Movie! Tucked away, surrounded by glowy lights and greenery with the most gorgeous arbor. I cannot wait to return!

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!
