King Family Vineyards Wedding | Sara + Vignesh

Sara and Vignesh’s big day was one of the most unforgettable weddings of my career! They honored both of their cultures with double the ceremonies and double the fun!

Sara and Vignesh first met at work. They kept it platonic and professional, but when Vignesh broke the news that he was transferring to New York City, Sara was heartbroken. She visited him shortly after his move and had the best weekend of her life. They ate, drank, and packed everything they could into that long weekend. The rest was history – they’d see each other every two weeks, exploring all the cities Vignesh would move to during his two-year work rotation. They eventually settled down together in Richmond, and he proposed on their getaway trip to Asheville, NC! 

We celebrated Sara and Vignesh at King Family Vineyards with back-to-back Hindu and Western ceremonies! One of the coolest parts of my job is getting to witness wedding traditions from other cultures. I was so grateful to be part of such a beautiful experience, especially for two incredibly kind, wonderful people like Sara and Vignesh! 

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Narayanaswamy! May your future be as full of love and blessings as your wedding day was!

Celebrations at the Reservoir Wedding | Betsy + Tom

Although Betsy and Tom claim to have been super shy when they first started dating, their story is full of adventure! They’d go paddle boarding, horseback riding, and have bonfires on the beach. Eventually a hike through the Shenandoah Valley lead to their engagement. Like something out of a movie, Betsy turned around from looking out over the mountains to Tom down on one knee. 

Betsy and Tom celebrated their “summer romance that hasn’t ended” with a September wedding at the Celebrations Manor House. They had the most gorgeous weather for their Sunday ceremony! Betsy’s boho, wildflower florals in fall colors were the perfect fit for the seasonal transition. The night ended with a grand exit first for me – they opted for vibrant ribbon poppers that provided streams of color and happiness! How fun is that!?

Betsy and Tom were a joy to work with! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McCoy!

Kingsmill Resort Winter Wedding | Sara + Kyle

Sara and Kyle ended my 2019 wedding season with quite the celebration and it definitely did NOT disappoint! I didn’t have the pleasure of getting to know this sweet couple before the wedding like most of my other bride and grooms, but when we finally hugged each other on wedding day it felt like we knew each other forever! Sara found me on social media forever ago and once she started following me, she said she knew she had to have me photograph her wedding- how amazing is that!? I felt so honored and loved, plus it just made me even more excited for their special day!

These two were so incredibly kind, lovable, silly, fun, and over the moon in love with each other. I couldn’t help but smile putting this blog together because the day was overflowing with joy from the moment I arrived until they danced their booties off at the reception. There were so many cool and special aspects to this wedding day which you’ll see throughout the pictures below- from the stunning details and personal touches, to the saber arch exiting their beautiful catholic ceremony, the soft golden hour portraits on the beach plus romantic sunset shots, the surprise bagpipe entrance into the reception, the bride’s brother singing and playing their first dance song, and I could go on and on about how amazing it was, but you’ll just have to see for yourself!

Congratulations to this wonderful couple! I can’t wait to see them again in 2021 for one of these bridesmaid’s getting married next!!! 🙂
