However, all of the intensity was worth it after this past weekend. This past Friday, several Wedding Collective Giveaway vendors gathered at Big Spring Farm and we had a big “vision” day with our winning couple, Alex and Laura! If you haven’t heard Alex and Laura’s story, you can watch it HERE. We met with them all day on Friday and I’ll just say this… we can’t wait to share more about their story, their personalities and their hearts. Gifting this wedding to this amazing couple is quickly becoming one of the highlights of my career. The vendors love each other, the couple is more than perfect and the story is powerful.
We started at 10:30am on Friday at Big Spring Farm with a site tour, then we had lunch provided by the amazing Chef’s Catering (who catered my SISTER’s Wedding!), then Alex and Laura met with Jess Creates and Tart Event Co to work on colors and invitations and then they interviewed with Mike and Shaina. Whew! After ALL of that, it was my turn! We all PILED into Mike and Shaina’s 4Runner and headed through the cow pasture, across a babbling brook and up to the mountaintop for their engagement session!! The light was glowy and the location was incredible. Lexington, VA is such a gem!! We even had a gorgeous Sette’ from Paisley and Jade to use in the field!!
After two hours of shooting, we were finally DONE with the planning day! I’m sure Alex and Laura were both exhausted yet thrilled to have accomplished so much at one time. We left the hilltop as the light disappeared and then headed to dinner… mexican style!! What a perfect way to end an amazing day!! Enjoy these favorites and get EXCITED for the Wedding Collective Giveaway WEDDING in September!!
