Ashley + Bryan | Kildee Farm Culpeper VA Wedding

Ashley + Bryan’s rustic wedding celebration was nothing short of tons of fun and super cute details! Taking place at Kildee Farm in Culpeper, VA, their wedding ceremony took place just as the most beautiful light broke thru the clouds giving way to a magnificent sunset across the rolling hills. The ceremony site was one of the most unique and fun that I have ever seen (vintage trucks, church doors draped in fabric – oh my!) with the barn reception decked out in rustic, classic farm fashion. From the mix match bridesmaid dresses, cowboy boots, personalized wedding band, signature drinks and instagram hastag – every detail perfectly fit Ashley + Bryan’s style!

Big thanks to my 2nd shooter Tyler Corvin! A few of his shots from the day are mixed in.

Brittani + Aaron | On Sunny Slope Farm Harrisonburg VA Wedding

Brittani & Aaron were married with a stunningly scenic view of the Harrisonburg valley on a new up-and-coming wedding venue, On Sunny Slope Farm. Their dog, Paisley may have stolen the show a few times – like when she proudly stood next to them during their vows and ring exchange.  But nothing beats how gorgeous Brittani looked as a glowing bride! And that dress?! Reminiscent of Grace Kelly. Every detail of the day reflected their fun loving spirit and desire to truly celebrate with their nearest and dearest. Aaron’s Dad gave one of the wittiest speeches I have ever heard, and Brittani’s sister gave one of the most emotional. I was so honored to be apart of the celebration, and from the venue to the caterer to the coordinator, to the family and friends – each and every one was delight! (Even if they are WV fans…)

Enjoy a few faves from the day – Congrats Brittani & Aaron (and Paisley too!)

Old World Vintage Travel Inspired Wedding Shoot

Oh.my.goodness. people. To say that I am excited to share this Old World Vintage Travel Inspired Wedding shoot with you is a total understatement. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to keep something under wraps for weeks? I’m a pretty patient gal, but this just about killed me. I was so fortunate to team up with some of the absolute best gals around to bring this vision to life and I could not be more excited for all of them to have their gorgeous talents and super hard work published on 100 layer cake today, as well as Burnetts Boards! And I just got word that one of the images will be in an e-mag coming out this summer! You truly rocked it out ladies! If you don’t know these talents yet, I suggest you check them out immediately. I could go on and on about each and every one of them and I just cannot wait to work with them again!

The theme for this inspiration shoot arose out of a love for travel – specifically the luxurious, glamorous jet-setting lifestyle of world travelers of days past.Inspired by the geographical, natural and architectural European destinations such as Paris, the French Riviera, Tuscany & Vicenza in Italy. We incorporated maps, luggage, globes, binoculars, and cameras along with our favorite french desserts. Modern elements are mixed in with retro glam and utterly classic style. There are also a few very subtle references in the invitation suite to our favorite really ‘Old World’ (and fantasy) TV show – Game of Thrones (recognize the names on the invitation?)! I love it when you can hid funny hidden gems like that in the design.

Also, on a side note – Stone Tower Winery was stunning and I really wish we could have been able to show off their gorgeous backdrop better. However, nature had other plans as it was so terribly windy that day – as in “Wizard of Oz tornado” windy, which does not work well for hair or veils. So unfortunately we had to stick inside the loft area, but it all worked out!

Haley brilliantly took my vision and random ideas, weaved them together and found the perfect talents to breathe life into them. She’s a mind reader that Haley. Plus, besides her amazing planning skills, her floral work is simply stunning and a breath of fresh air. Her take on the shoot: “Sarah and I threw around quite a few ideas before finally landing on “Old World Travel” and I’m so glad that’s where we ended up. Once we had our inspiration, everything else came together seamlessly. All of our vendors grasped our ideas firmly by the horns and turned them into something beautiful. I was giddy with excitement when I received the invitation suite from Little Bit Heart. They did such a beautiful job and incorporated maps and travel in such creative ways. Sweets by E made such perfect little treats that went so well with our colors. Evan was kind enough to let us taste everything and it was all delicious. She is a truly talented lady. And she makes a pretty great model too! Terra from Jordan K Winn worked magic in turning our models into Old World beauties. They both looked so natural and their style fit in perfectly with our theme. I loved finding flowers that had a vintage feel to them. I knew I wanted light pinks and creams, but couldn’t resist the dusty purple roses when I saw them. They were too perfect to pass up. While I love the look of an arrangement overflowing with greenery and blooms, there is something to be said for a centerpiece bursting with blooms. Roses make everything feel more romantic and an arrangement with too many flowers to count seems so elegant to me. ”

Haley - Eeeeek! This shoot was so incredibly fun to plan with you and turned out absolutely perfect (despite the Wizard of Oz tornado)! I had such a wonderful time!

Lindsay + Wes | A Mount Ida Farm Wedding

To say I have been eagerly anticipating this wedding is an understatement. Every since their engagement session, I could not wait to see their vision come together and to celebrate with Lindsay and Wes. Not to mention their amazing family and friends, many who I knew, so it was such a joy to share in the celebration and to see just how much they are loved and supported. Mount Ida Farm is one of my most favorite new venues with the most scenic vistas around (and within minutes from my house!), but even better than that,  it holds a very sentimental place in their relationship. It’s where Wes worked when the two met, therefore spending much time on the farm exploring, getting to know each other and falling in love. Oh, and when the cows saw Wes, their old buddy was back and all dressed up, they flocked to see what was going on 🙂 The comfort between them reflects a strong quiet steadfast love. They compliment each other so well and I know their marriage will be just as beautiful as their wedding day!

Mary Catherine + Michael | A Luray Virginia Wedding

AHHHHH views like this of the Blue Ridge Mountains with the amazing light rays and sunsets are just one reason I adore shooting in Virginia. Shenandoah Woods in Luray, Virginia has one of the most stunning mountain top views and provided the perfect backdrop to Mary Catherine and Michael’s destination wedding. Guests came from afar and were able to stay in the amazing “cabins” on the property (I use the term cabins loosely because they are more like luxurious vacation homes). And how cute is their nickname MC2 that they carried throughout the reception details? And can we mention her ring? AMAZING. The custom made dress? STUNNING. The fireworks show surprise, fire pit & s’mores bar? ENTERTAINING. This couple really knows how to host a celebration and spoil their guests. This wedding day was also pretty awesome since I was able to co-shoot it with my dear friend and insanely talented photographer R.T. Armstrong. We team up on occasion for weddings and it’s always a pleasure to collaborate and a guaranteed great time. Enjoy a few of my faves from MC2.
