Emily & Ryan’s wedding day was just the most perfect fall day. With a November wedding in Virginia, you never know if it’s going to be warm, freezing, or just right. The day was just warm enough to not need a jacket yet with a slight breeze to keep you comfortable. It was IDEAL for a wedding day.
I arrived on site and was immediately taken back by how beautiful the winery was. They chose the winery for their engagement session and it was stunning but seeing it covered in lights, florals, and decor, it was absolutely transformed. After scoping out a location for their first-touch and private vow reading, I headed to the bridal suite to begin my day with the girls. They were all so joyous and relaxed – it was the perfect energy to surround our sweet bride. Meanwhile the boys played a game outside and it was just so obvious how much this couple is loved by their family and friends.
Their colors complimented the season while Emily’s dress was a jaw-dropper. Just wait until you see the images below! Emily & Ryan are two of the most beautiful people, inside and out, and I was so blessed to have the opportunity to document this special moment in their lives together.
Emily & Ryan, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together! Witnessing the adoring love that you share was such an honor. Xoxo!
