Trey + Kiersten

  • A Retro Rustic Wedding | Scottsville VA Wedding

The skies were cloudy but I’ve learned not to let wedding day weather fool me. Just because the skies aren’t blue and the sun isn’t shining doesn’t mean that it can’t be a BEAUTIFUL day. In fact, some of my BEST wedding days have been overcast and so I gladly welcome the clouds! Michael and I drove through the rolling hills of Scottsville (a small area outside of Charlottesville) until we arrived at camp. Trey and Kiersten decided to have their wedding on Trey’s parent’s property that they have converted into an incredible camp that Michael and I have been going to since high school!

I told Michael, “Gosh I hope she has a good time…. she’s so excited!”.  And I’m not talking just smiles and giggles…. she decorated her CAR before making the super long drive done from Cape May. I was so thankful for her teachable attitude and desire to learn. We accomplished so much in our little amount of time!

Dustin + Brittani

  • A DIY Charleston Wedding | Pepper Plantation Wedding

He brings a sense of “calm” to her when they are in each other’s presence. I noticed it during their engagement session and it was ever so present on their wedding day. Dustin is Brittani’s best friend and soul mate! As the girls got ready, Britt sat in the stylist’s chair and with her hair up in pins and her makeup half done, she says “I just want to see him”.  That was her main concern. Not the dress, not her hair, not the million little details that she was sprinting around doing that morning… just him. It’s easy to understand why she loves him so much. Dustin is the sweetest country boy you could ever meet. He’s polite, gentle, patient and I’m pretty sure he could get away with anything with that smile of his!! As he turned around to see his bride
