June Wedding

Liz & Dave Wedding Preview | Pharsalia Wedding

I’m trying to be better at blogging so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to add some beauty to my blog!! Liz and Dave planned a beautiful June wedding at Pharsalia which if you haven’t visited there yet you need to go now. Pharsalia in June is simply breathtaking with their gardens in full bloom. There are so many cool buildings, flower gardens, and mountain views on their property it was hard to pick just where to take photos. The rooms in the main house of Pharsalia are filled with antiques and stories and serve as the perfect backdrop for a fun and unique wedding.

A few of my favorite parts of Liz and Dave’s June wedding were that the wedding party made their own bouquets the day before the wedding with flowers handpicked from the Pharsalia gardens. I also loved the variety of colors and textures of the bridesmaids dresses and that Dave let the guys go without wearing a jacket for the outdoor ceremony. Liz and Dave also chose to do an exit without any “bells and whistles”, no sparklers, no confetti, just their family and friends lined up to say good bye with cheers and hugs!! I can’t give away all the fun details just yet, since there will be a full blog post soon. Until then enjoy a few of my favorite images from their wedding day!

Jess & Logan Outdoor Wedding | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Jess and Logan planned the most beautiful outdoor wedding. They lived and worked on the farm in Charlottesville for several years and wanted to be married there before moving off the property. The property at Oakencroft is breathtaking. There are mountain views and open fields for miles and it's the perfect location for an outdoor wedding. They chose a spot on the top of a hill for their ceremony and reception. Guests were invited to camp at the property just down the hill from the festivities. Outdoor summer weddings can be tricky to plan. There was an 80% chance of rain for ten days leading up to their outdoor wedding. The day before the wedding the chance of rain dropped to 20% and there was not a single drop of rain the entire day!! We did trade the rain for some very sunny and warm weather for their June wedding, but I'll take that over rain any day!

Jess, Logan, and their friends were a blast to work with. They were full of laughter and energy throughout the whole day and night. Their portraits show how much fun they were truly having and their wedding reception even included the limbo! Jess and Logan chose the wedding colors of plum, lavender, and sage to compliment the outdoor farm venue.  The bridesmaids and brides"man" also wore the most beautiful plum dresses and tie to compliment the groomsmen and their sage ties. They filled their reception with sage greenery and pops of plum flowers. Their naked cake and whoopie pies topped off the night along with an amazing sunset and a high energy sparkler exit.
