Lance & Katherine| 10.12.19

Virginia Wedding at Warehouse 817

I first met Katherine for coffee at Bloom Cafe in Bristol (if you haven’t been you need to go!). We ended up chatting for almost 2 hours before we even realized how much time had passed and most of what we talked about wasn’t the wedding. That is how I knew we were a perfect fit.

Katherine has the most infections laugh and smile and her wedding day was filled with so many laughs. I knew that Lance didn’t love having his photo taken but as soon as Katherine was around everything about him lit up and I could see him truly be himself with lots of genuine smiles and laughs.

Their first look was so emotionally charged that I had to fight back tears. Katherine started crying as soon as she stepped out of the Bristol Hotel and saw Lance standing a few yards away waiting for her. Some of my favorite moments from the day are of her crying, Lance wiping away her tears and then the two of them both laughing about it.

If you had asked me to describe the type of wedding that I would love to finish of the year with I don’t think I could have created a better one in my head. Lance and Katherine your day was perfect and I am so thankful that I was able to share in so many laughs and capture so much love. Congratulations on your beautiful wedding and I pray continual blessings for years to come!

John & Taylor| 10.5.19

When I woke up the day of John and Taylors weddings I can honestly say it was the first day that it truly felt like fall. The air was crisp and the leaves were starting to change colors. I had been going over the details of this day for over a year so it was almost surreal that the day was finally here. To be honest, I was also so exited to finally be able to share the bridal portraits that I had taken of Taylor on her family farm a few weeks prior!

The Trinkle Mansion bed and breakfast was the perfect backdrop for John and Taylors first look. Moments prior to the first look Taylors mom helped to make sure all of the details were perfect. There is something so beautiful about a bride on her wedding day-just filled with so much love and anticipation. Taylor was glowing.

After portraits at the Trinkle Mansion Taylor and John said their vows at the West in Church in town surrounded by their closest family and friends. Guests signed wooden hearts to fill a box that will hang on their wall. Their beautiful day was finished off with lots of celebrations and dancing at the Wytheville Country Club.
