The Farm Retreat at Willow Creek Wedding |Culpeper, Virginia Photographer

Oh My Goodness! Last week Samantha and James Farm Wedding was downright incredible! The beautiful details, their sweet love, and the gorgeous October weather was so perfect! I am so excited to have photographed their farm country chic wedding. It was casual elegance at it’s best. Enjoy the little glimpses into their amazing wedding day!

Pops of autumn colors, orange, yellow, burgundy, and green graced the tables full of vintage containers and vases of flowers. Samantha’s Sunflower bouquet was the ideal choice for this country farm setting! There were mason jars with lace, but so much more. An old farm wooden table served as a hand cleaning station with lemon water and tea towels, the guest book rested on a wooden table with tree bark wooden pencils with a gorgeous floral arrangement and pumpkins with splashes of orange and green. Cotton lace and crocheted tablecloths graced the wooden serving tables. Pumpkins in all shapes, sizes and variations of color, from the typical orange to variegated green an white. Piles of hay bales with more pumpkins! Large vintage Hampton glass refreshment containers. Cupcakes from Cupcake Heaven, which seems so fitting, as The Farm Retreat at Willow Creek is a little bit of heaven and so was this beautiful wedding! Congrats Samantha and James!!!!

Meadowlark Gardens Engagement | Ron + Sharon | Vienna, Virginia Photographer

Ron and Sharon’s beautiful engagement session at Meadowlark Botanical Garden was so amazing. I had the best time walking the pathways through the woods and around the delightful pond of Meadowlark Gardens with them. Signs of Fall were beginning with the falling leaves and orange & purple thistle which automatically sparked a Pumpkin Spices Latte craving! It is so apparent how happy they are together and I am honored to have been chosen to capture their Wedding Day memories! They are naturals in front of the camera and I loved sharing this special time with them before their wedding.

The gardens are such a perfect magical spot tucked away in Vienna, Virginia for couples to walk and spend some time for romance and relaxation. Thank you Ron and Sharon for so much fun photographing around Meadowlark Gardens. Wish you both the best during this exciting time of you lives and I’m looking forward to seeing you very soon!!!

So Sweet!

So Sweet!
