I have way, way too many thoughts about this wedding and even months later am still processing it! Every now and then you have the opportunity to work with people in a situation where everything just clicks. That’s how this wedding was for me.
Sabrina & Nick are such a wonderful couple. Their intimate ceremony at Knight’s Gambit Vineyard on Friday with a larger reception the next night at Old Metropolitan Hall in Charlottesville offered the best of both worlds. Every moment I spent with the two of them, their love for one another just poured out of them and they were so fun to get to know!
From the first time I talked to Jenny over the phone, I knew that her wedding to Chris was going to be one for the books. To start, it was at Wilderness Adventure, a place that is very near and dear to my heart. When I first moved to Virginia, it was for a job as a backpacking trip leader for their year round and summer camp programs. I spent a few years working there in a wide variety of roles before eventually ending up as a photographer in Roanoke. So, needless to say, I have quite a lot of love for their venue, and was very excited to get to know the couple that choose such a unique place for their wedding!
I don't know where to begin with this wedding, from start to finish, it was an absolute joy to be a part of and I am so glad Lesley & Michael chose me to be their photographer!
First, this was a much different experience than many of my weddings because instead of being outdoors or in a relatively small town, this wedding was all in downtown Staunton, Virginia. I was able to be at the rehearsal too, so I booked an Airbnb that seemed close to everything, and when I arrived, I realized it was within walking distance which was AMAZING!
There is so much I could say about this wedding and how much I loved getting to work with Sierra & Meriwether, but to be brief - it was absolutely incredible.
This style and all the details were above and beyond - so glam and elegant. The venue, Early Mountain Vineyard, was rustic and gorgeous and the early-winter weather was perfect! Both families were so wonderful and loving and the entire day was just filled with joy.
