A Montfair Resort Wedding

Holly and Alyssa had the most beautiful wedding day at Montfair Resort in Crozet, Virginia. They were surrounded by family and friends and beautiful views of the mountains. I was so happy to have been there to share in the joy that came with their day. Montfair is a beautiful place tucked away in Crozet with gorgeous mountain views. The rain held off and the skies were absolutely beautiful. From William and Mary to studying abroad, they found love and laughter with each other. Alyssa’s love for music was incorporated into their day when he friends sang during the ceremony. It was such a wonderful day. I can’t say enough about these two. It couldn’t have been more perfect for them.

 Virginia Wedding at Sierra Vista

I’m so excited to share this day on the blog! Jen and Braden found me by way of A Little Party Events and when I heard they were having their wedding at Sierra Vista – I knew I couldn’t pass this day up. For those of you not local to Lynchburg, Sierra Vista is possibly the best view in the area. Marianne, who owns and operates the venue, has done a phenomenal job making this a truly special place to get married. We got to have Jen and Braden’s engagement session there and that’s when Jen told me that they picked this venue for the beautiful mountain view, so we put a lot of emphasis on making those images priority (who wouldn’t?!). While it’s easy to see that they make a gorgeous couple – Jen and Braden are two of the most genuine and kind hearted people I’ve had a chance to photograph. It was a dream of a day, and one I won’t soon forget.

Love in Cape Chuck

Tucked away in Cape Charles is a beautiful place called Elkington Events. It is stunning – and Shelby and Kevin couldn’t have had a more perfect day there. It started with groomsmen in “chubbies” and a walk to the beach and a beautiful first look on the water. Then we were off for a ceremony on the water in the shade of the trees. Cape Charles is a place Kevin’s family has always visited and I learned that all the cool kids call it, “Cape Chuck.” Shelby planned an amazing day and I learned that she too is an Eagles fan, which made me love her even more. My favorite thing about this day was how vast and beautiful Elkington was, but how it gave off this amazingly intimate feeling of being together. It was awesome.

A May Wedding at West Manor

I just wrapped up 8 weddings in 8 weeks and I’m so excited to actually have a chance to finally sit down and go back through all these beautiful days. Lindsey and Matt had an absolutely stunning day at West Manor Estate. The pops of color were so perfect – and so very Lindsey. She is bubbly and fun and I love being around her family. It was a gorgeous day in May to have an outdoor wedding. I had so much fun with them.

A Kingsmill Resort Wedding

When it comes to Virginia weddings and all the beautiful venues – Kinsgmill is without a doubt one of the most gorgeous places to be. I was so thankful to have been there this past fall with two of the most down to earth and beautiful people.

You know – blogging can be a little bit like working out. When you are in the flow, it’s easy to keep blogging everything, but take a little break and all the sudden it’s been months since I’ve blogged and I’m totally regretting not blogging all of these beautiful weddings sooner. I worked 11 weddings in 8 weeks in the Fall and I definitely pushed blogging to the back burner. Now that I’m about to start spring wedding season, I figured there must be no better time to put a blog up than now.

I love that I get to travel all over to document all these beautiful days. I love that my couples truly understand the importance of their wedding images and Blaine and Darren absolutely poured this understanding into their day and I loved how their gallery turned out. They faught off rain and made the call to still have their ceremony outside – and it paid off! The landscape at Kingsmill is breathtaking and the views of the James River are absolutely perfect. I had several shots envisioned in my mind from the moment Laura and I got onto the property.

Jordan Von Lange Events was crucial to making this day perfect for everyone and Karen from Aleen Floral Design never fails me with her gorgeous floral work. Everyone at Kingsmill was so accommodating and gracious to serve. It was such an amazing day and once again, I was so thankful to be a part of it.
