Tiffany & Dave's Wedding Preview | Wintergreen Wedding

Tiffany and Dave hit the jackpot for fall foliage for their late October wedding. Their Wintergreen wedding was filled not only with beautiful views on the mountains, but gorgeous fall leaves everywhere you looked. The lodge where the girls were getting ready happened to be next door to a very kind family that let us on their property which led to a private overlook of the valley and we took some of my favorite images of the entire day in this 5 minutes!! Their sweet dog also joined in the fun not only for the ceremony but portraits too. I cannot wait to share more from this wedding day, there were just so many amazing moments it was hard to pick just a few.

Riley & Eric's Wedding Preview | Hermitage Hill Wedding

Riley and Eric are such a sweet and easy going couple. I actually didn't even get to meet Eric until after their ceremony and he was just as easy to get along with as if I had met him a year and a half ago when I met his new bride! Riley and her mom were definitely a very organized duo when it came to wedding planning. I've been looking forward to this wedding for such a long time and it was well worth the wait. Emma, the golden retriever was such a sweet addition to their ceremony and I love the flower collar she wore and was amazed that she kept in on the whole time too. Here are a few sneak peaks from this beautiful outdoor wedding at Hermitage Hill Farm and Stables in Waynesboro. Look for the full blog post next month and watch IG for more sneak peaks as I edit my way through this beautiful wedding.

Sarah & Damien's Wedding Preview | Staunton Outdoor Wedding

Sarah and Damien are both such sweet, kind souls. They planned the most perfectly unique wedding that truly fit who they are as a couple. Everything about their wedding day was perfect, until it rained. It didn't last too long, but long enough to get us all very wet. They reacted so well because ultimately they were there to become husband and wife, not to have perfect hair or take hundreds of photographs, and you can become husband and wife in the rain or the sunshine! So they continued with their vows, guests raised umbrellas, the ring bearer caught rain drops in his mouth it was really a beautiful time full of color, love, and lots of raindrops! Enjoy this outdoor wedding preview, the rainy ceremony, and the gorgeous light that followed the rain! To all the future brides a little rain on your wedding day, even an outdoor wedding really doesn't change much and sometimes makes the memories (and some of the photos) even better.  Thanks for letting me share this special day with you and I can't wait to share more soon!!

Mariellyn & Carl's Wedding Preview | Cross Keys Vineyard Wedding

I've decided that golden hour at Cross Keys Vineyard is one of the best around!! You can see the blue mountains perfectly which is what brought Mariellyn and Carl all the way from Florida to get married here! Their wedding day finally felt like fall but it was still warm enough to be outdoors all day and just enjoy the weather and share in the love these two have for each other. They were surrounded by beautiful colors, flowers, and so many people that love them.

If you follow me on Instagram you'll also remember that Mariellyn and Carl buried a bottle of bourbon which they dug up on their wedding day to share with friends, such a fun southern tradition and wedding day celebration.

Here are a few sneak peaks to hold them over before they leave for their tropical honeymoon tomorrow!! I hope you two enjoy lots of bourbon this week!!

Inna & Peter's Wedding Preview | Veritas Winery Wedding Venue

Inna and Peter are just one of those couples! They have chemistry that is apparent when you first meet them and if you saw their engagement session you will know what I mean! I had so much fun spending the day with them at their Veritas Winery wedding this weekend. It was a warm day, but the sky was filled with beautiful clouds which let us take pictures all over the vineyards. Veritas has so many unique details and their reception room is so beautiful! It has such a warm glow to it and the white fabric draped along the ceilings and walls add to any wedding decor.

Inna had so many sparkling gold details for her wedding day. It started with the gold Jimmy Choo wedges a beautiful dress with so much detailing,  and then she changed into a different dress for their first dance. Speaking of their first dance, they took dance lessons before the wedding and they did an amazing job! The night ended with Inna and Peter being lifted into the air for a traditional Hora dance. Be on the lookout for their full blog post soon!!

Cassie and Robert were married this weekend at Cross Keys Vineyard in Mt. Crawford, VA. It was such a beautiful day, the sky was full of clouds and it wasn't hot or cold..... just perfect for an outdoor wedding. I know Cassie and Robert are off on their tropical honeymoon but hopefully they will get a chance to peak in and see a few highlights from their wedding day.
