The Beautiful Bouquet Wedding | Running Hare Vineyard

  • Harry + Brittany

the hotel room where the girls were getting ready and gave Britt a big hug! This girl was SO excited to get married and her day was FINALLY here! Her bridesmaids surrounded her as she continued getting ready and then the flowers came… and everyone stopped in their tracks. Brittany caught a glance at her dream bouquet and she started tearing up.  Some don’t understand this. Why get emotional over a BOUQUET?! ….

The Tropical Southern Wedding | Jasmine Plantation

  • Dan + Kelsey

have heard someone say that “everything happens for a reason”.  Well, I think you can take that a step further and say that you meet everyone in your life for a reason too! I met Kelsey 4 or 5 years ago while I was visiting a friend at Tech and look how that friendship has grown!! Not only did I end up shooting Kelsey’s wedding, but I was also able to form an awesome friendship with both her and Dan. These two were married last Saturday in Providence Forge, VA on a quaint plantation. The rain held off  and allowed them to have the beautiful outdoor wedding that they dreamed about. Surrounded by their family and friends, they became best friends and companions for LIFE.
