Crystal and Justin picked an amazing rustic, historic venue for their wedding day, the Kyle House in Fincastle, Virginia. It has the most amazing barn chapel filled with chandeliers and white paper lanterns. And the reception space is so beautiful with all of the old brick walls and wood beams. Crystal and Justin first met through friends after college and I love how they can laugh so easily together! The colors of the day were navy blue, yellow and gray which I thought looked perfect in the space. Crystal’s Mom, Lynn, had her hands full making all of the flower arrangements and decorating all of those pretty cupcakes! An appearance was made by a frog and a cat and at the end of the evening the guests piled onto a school bus headed for Roanoke, fitting because Crystal is a school teacher!

Angela and Jayson will be tying the knot next month at the Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Virginia. This resort has been a favorite to Angela and Jayson and they even spent their first anniversary here. They came back for a visit recently for some last minute wedding planning and an engagement session on the resort grounds. Another special place to these two is the Cheesecake Factory! This is the place they had their first date and where Jayson popped the big question. I had so much fun with these two and I can’t wait to see them on the big day! My favorite is when a snail tried to slowly sneak away with Angela’s ring!

Architecture, the beach, modern art, homemade beer, bluegrass, the sweetest black lab, and a monkey! It may sound like an odd mix of things for a wedding but it was perfect! Stephanie and Doug first met at a kickball game in D.C. and both happen to be civil engineers. Stephanie’s job has taken her all over the world and her and Doug also love to travel, to beaches in particular. Doug proposed on a trip to Key West and now they are spending their honeymoon in St. Martin, Anguilla, and St. Barts! Right after their first look outside of the Hotel Roanoke, their sweet black lab Indy joined us for a few shots. Indy also made an appearance on the custom labels on homemade beer that Doug and his groomsmen made for the reception. Stephanie and Doug chose the Taubman Art Museum in downtown Roanoke, Virginia for their ceremony and reception because they loved the architecture of this building and all of the beautiful downtown elements, especially those neon signs that light up a night! It was an amazing wedding and I loved everything about it, especially the bluegrass band, Drymill Road, that you must check out. Oh and I guess I should explain the monkey…he has been passed from friend to friend and whoever was married latest keeps the monkey until the next friend marries!

Caitlin and James met online and their first date was on a beach in New York, close to where they both went to college. Caitlin is a biologist and is currently working up at Mountain Lake Resort in Pembroke, Virginia at the Biological Station. She is studying a species of salamander that is all over these woods and James was lucky enough to find one during the engagement session! Both Caitlin and James are very outdoorsy people and James has even hiked a section of the Appalachian Trail so spending some time in the woods was perfect for these two. Their dog Rufus joined along and we found the most beautiful orange mushroom that looked so pretty against Caitlin’s sapphire engagement ring!

Rachel grew up on a beautiful farm hidden in the mountains in Newport, Virginia. Her family has lived there for generations and for the 4th of July, Rachel and her husband Karl brought along their three cute kids, William, Caroline, and Clayton, for a visit to see their grandparents. It was so much fun exploring the farm with this family! We found some tasty wild berries, jumped off some rocks, went for a walk, and tried out the tree swing! At the end, Rachel’s parents, sister, and brother-in-law joined us for a few shots!
