Trump Winery Wedding – A Summery Cranberry and Gold Charlottesville Vineyard Wedding at Trump Winery – Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Alexa and Mike exchanged vows this past Sunday at one of my all time favorite venues in Charlottesville – Trump Winery – in front of that gorgeous willow tree they have. The sun was definitely out and about on their big day, and they had a sweet, intimate gathering of friends and family to share in their celebration.

Trump is such a gorgeous venue in many ways – there is no shortage of spectacular views and Alexa + Mike were able to take advantage of what their venue already had to offer and blended their wedding type seamlessly along with it. Their gorgeous color palette of rich cranberry hues and pops of gold gave a very bold infusion that went along very nicely with all the deep wood tones and ivy colored walls. The arbor for their ceremony was gorgeous and draped with some stunning florals that were blended perfectly with the willow tree behind it.

These two have such a sweet love that was evident throughout the whole day and from the moment I met them during their engagement session in VA Beach last year. Their wedding truly reflected them, and you would tell how relaxed every guest was who attended, but they weren’t afraid to get out on the dance floor and have a dance-off either!

Charlottesville Engagement Photographer – A Summer Charlottesville Engagement at The Saunders-Monticello Trail and Riverview Park along the Rivanna River – Charlottesville Engagement Photos

When Lauren told me about the ideas she and Taylor had for their engagement session, I was pretty excited!! They wanted to incorporate some pretty cool ideas that were definitely unique and special to their relationship and reflected their fun-loving, outdoorsy personalities. These two enjoy spending their time together in Charlottesville where their super gorgeous winter wedding at Farmington Country Club is going to be this December (I can’t wait!) and who could blame them? I got to explore some new gorgeous spots that I hadn’t seen yet with them, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend time with two people other than these sweet loves.

We started at the Saunders-Monticello Trail near Carter Mountain and Taylor and Lauren were ready to go with their hammock for the first round of their super cool personal touches for their session! I’ve never had a couple bring a hammock to their session before, so this was a neat addition, and definitely had me wanting to buy one of my own! What made it even better was how well these two cuddled, always a plus! You can’t have a hammock and not have a snugglefest.

Charlottesville has so much gorgeous scenery, so we were able to take advantage of all the gorgeous woodland areas and flowers, and river nearby as well. Lauren and Taylor showed off their sporty side with some running and braved the somewhat murky river with me for some more adventurous shots (and it was worth it). These two are sweet and adorable beyond compare, and I couldn’t be more excited for their wedding in December!!

Castle Hill Cider Wedding – Vibrant Spring Charlottesville Wedding – Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Meaghan + Dan make the sweetest duo you will ever meet. Mentioned in one of the toasts by their sweet friends was the statement that they act like two teenagers in love, and it’s completely true. They look at each other with eyes so completely full of adoration, joy and all-consuming love that it truly puts the biggest smile on your face being around them! They give off a radiant energy and witnessing their love for one another is such a special moment.

When I met up with these two during their DC engagement session last year, I loved every minute with them. They have such a fun energy and they wanted that to be reflected in their wedding day. Every detail was gorgeous and representative of the perfect spring wedding. You could see every guest was at ease and simply enjoying every moment, and Meaghan and Dan were able to spend the entire cocktail hour mingling with their guests and spending quality time with the people they care the most about (a really special thing on your wedding day!).

With a venue as breathtaking as Castle Hill Cider in Keswick, VA, you already know the day is going to be a stunner. Even with rain and storms, Meaghan and Dan were able to enjoy a flawless ceremony that remained untouched by the rain until they recessed at the very end! I love every detail and every moment from this wedding from her gorgeous Katie May gown to the donuts provided by the Carpe Donut truck during the reception, and of course all the flowers!!

Heritage Hunt Country Club Wedding – DC Wedding Photographer

Heritage Hunt Country Club Wedding – Memorial Day Weekend wedding in Northern VA at Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club – DC Wedding Photographer

Evan and Kelly had such a gorgeous Memorial Day weekend wedding in Northern VA at Heritage Hunt Country Club this past Saturday. They had an outpouring of love from family and friends that packed pretty much every pew in the church (their ceremony was so sweet) and these people made their reception a really exciting one! I have known Evan since high school and being able to witness his wedding day was super special – Kelly is such a sweet soul, and every little detail in their wedding made it very unique and very them (which is why I loved it).

These two met while they attended college at William and Mary. Evan was a transfer sophomore student and Kelly was a junior at the time. Kelly was a part of the swim team at William and Mary and so was Evan’s long time friend Sidney Glass, who Evan had decided to live with upon transferring schools. Through Sidney, these two met and sparks flew!

While they were only together at William and Mary for 2 years, they loved every bit of Williamsburg and spending time there. Kelly left for VCU to take part in PT school and Evan took a gap year after college, so they were able to see each other pretty frequently!! Evan started at American University in DC for his Masters in Spanish (coincidentally right near Kelly’s parents’). Even though he lives in Richmond he would come up 1 day a week for class and on the weekends to visit. Now that they are married they are definitely looking forward to being in the same city!

Kelly and Evan are two super active people. They both grew up swimming and while Evan switched over to cycling, Kelly continue throughout her college career. Evan not only loves cycling, he’s pretty handy and even built Kelly’s bike so they can go out together! Cycling is so important to these two that they wanted to include a lot of different bike elements throughout their wedding from the favors to a very gorgeous floral decorated bike in the reception area, etc. It really gave the reception a vibe of “them.”

There were other really special details throughout the wedding as well. Kelly’s veil was made by her sister – this piece was so gorgeous! It went along perfectly with her crystal hairpiece and all the glitz and lace on her dress. Kelly’s Italian grandmother and aunt also made some incredibly delicious cookies that were literally devoured within minutes by the guests. They were gorgeous to look at, but even sweeter to eat. These two had so many fabulous family and friends from all stages in their lives come to show their love on their big day, and it was so amazing to see. Congrats you two!

Meriwether Springs Vineyard Wedding – Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Meriwether Springs Vineyard Wedding – Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

When I met these two at Carter Mountain Orchard this past fall for their sweet little engagement session, you could just tell how special they are. They have such deep sentimental value for everything and it shines through in the simplest of ways – but I just love the way they look at each other!

Not only was Carter Mountain where we had their engagement session, but it’s also where he proposed! They definitely wanted those photos to be special, so I definitely knew their wedding would be no different. It was a gorgeous day (with some of the prettiest florals I have ever seen!) and what made it even more special is that these two now get to share a wedding anniversary with not just one set of parents, but BOTH their parents! Yes, both their parents got married on the same day just one year apart and these two wanted to be able to carry on the special tradition. It just shows how special family is to them!

Their venue was a pretty little vineyard tucked away on a nice estate with some pretty epic woods around it. We had a fairytale forest to work with! And these two planned an insanely gorgeous spring wedding from the colors to flowers to cake. This year I have been so excited to see all these bold yet still romantic color choices in florals and others. All the flowers in the little planters on the tables made it feel like a garden had been transported inside and with all the light streaming in – it was always full of a golden glow!

Mostly I loved that they had their dog Duke (they both went to JMU) and her family dog come to the wedding dressed in their finest bow ties. It was the sweetest addition they made, and Duke even cut in on a father daughter dance moment for a turn! Classic.

I absolutely adore these two and their wedding was such a gorgeous day to capture!
