Matt + Danielle

A Clifton Winery Wedding | Paradise Springs

I arrived

at Danielle’s parent’s house and needless to say, with 9 bridesmaids, there was quite a buzz happening around the house. Clothes were being ironed, makeup was being finished, and excitement was building. I made my way through the house and chatted with Danielle’s sweet mom who was just as calm as she could be and explained that she loved the commotion that was filling the house… because it wasn’t bad commotion, it was exciting! This was a big day for their family! Their only daughter was getting married to the love of her life! These two had waiting a long time for this day!! Matt and Danielle actually went on their VERY first date on September 7th, 2010, exactly three years prior to their wedding day. As Danielle walked down the aisle, you could hear soft sniffles from the pews that were filled with friends and family that love them both so dearly.

Ian + Jennifer

A Taproot Farm Wedding | Capon Bridge, WV

She

emailed me and said that she was getting married on her parent’s farm in West Virginia and I was so excited! I love weddings that take place at home! Our wedding reception was held in my parent’s backyard and I couldn’t have imagine it anywhere else. As Michael and I pulled up to the quaint yellow house overlooking the field where the reception would take place, it reminded me so much of our wedding day. Friends and family were running around prepping last minute details and as I talked to Jenny’s mom, she told that it took an army of friends to pull this wedding off. As hard as DIY weddings are, there is something so wonderful about getting married in a place that means so much to you. I loved seeing to-do lists around the house and I watching friends, cousins and other family members pitch in throughout the day. Their labor of love truly paid off because Ian and Jenny’s day couldn’t have been more beautiful.

A Farvue Farm Wedding, Goochland VA

As you

know from reading the blog and hearing about our life, Michael and I love looking at homes…. especially homes on the water. After building our new house, we have become even more obsessed with looking at impressive homes with gorgeous architecture. Our favorite homes are always on the water. I mean how amazing would it be to lookout over a river or a lake in your backyard?! So when we pulled up to Judson and Catie’s venue, I knew that Michael was going to love the view from the backyard! It’s just beautiful! The ceremony took place on the back lawn and the guests overlooked the James River as Judson and Catie were married. Everything was just perfect and went according to plan… except for the train that decided to roll past RIGHT after Catie walked down the aisle!

A Downtown Ashland Wedding

After

dinner was over at the rehearsal, one by one, different friends and family members stood up and shared just how much they love Brendan and Jenna. Groomsmen shared stories and talked about how much respect and love they have for Brendan and bridesmaids stood up and thanked Jenna for being such a trustworthy, intentional friend. However, they didn’t just talk about them separately. EVERYONE shared about how amazing they are as a couple and how they have learned so much from their relationship. It’s a beautiful thing to see two friends who everyone loves and admires, start a life together!! Michael and I just love these two. Brendan was in our bridal party and has been such a loyal friend to Michael over the last 5 years. Jenna has been a part of my life since I was a junior in college and she was a freshman!

A Whimsical Wisconsin Wedding

I have

said it it so many times, we love being a part of friend and family weddings! Some photographers don’t like the pressure and responsibility that comes with shooting a family member’s wedding but I have to say that I wouldn’t want it any other way. Michael and I absolutely loved being a part of Paige and Ryan’s big day! The two of us and my dad made the journey to Wisconsin early on Friday morning and before I knew it, we were at rehearsal dinner with family that we hadn’t seen in over two years!! The last time we visited family at the lake, it was for Paige’s brother’s wedding two years prior. I only wish there were more cousins left in this family so that our pilgrimage to the lake could continue!! We love it up there. It was a perfect 75 degrees and 0% humidity! VERY different from the Florida weather we experienced two weeks ago!
