Ben & Brandon | Wintergreen Wedding | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Every wedding has a story and this is one is all about fate! Yes, I’m sure it was fate that led Ben and Brandon together, but it was also fate that led me to photograph their wedding day. I don’t want to share all the details but I will say I met Ben and Brandon for the first time two days before their wedding and was hired just a week before their big day. I knew I was going to love them simply from our first few email exchanges and I was right. Ben and Brandon and their best man and best women were SO MUCH FUN! Ben had their timeline planned out like a well oil machined and it ran that way too. The day was organized and laid back and just an all around fun day. While the pre ceremony photos were fun, the ceremony was emotional and equally as amazing. The clouds covered us perfectly and their guests were in tears as they said their vows. Ben and Brandon chose to have a little down time after their ceremony and before their reception which is such a great idea. It was also important to them to attend their cocktail hour. In fact they did their introduction and entrance at cocktail hour and it was one of the funniest entrances I have seen. Once everyone made their way into the reception for welcome speeches, it was met by more emotional moments and stories and their first dance as married spouses! The night ended with an all guest dance party, including Brandon’s grandmother! I am so lucky to have had fate send this lovely couple together and to have had the opportunity to photograph one part of their love story. I have a feeling this love story will lead to a few more happy endings, as the day I posted their sneak peak I received a very emotional message from a couple seeking wedding vendors for a wedding they’ve unfortunately had a very difficult time planning. So for now, congratulations to these two newlyweds as they enjoy post wedding bliss and a lifetime of happiness.
