Let me count the ways of why I L-O-V-E-D this wedding:
Reason #1: Boutonnieres. Me: "Do you know where the boutonnieres are?" Groomsman: "Who are they? Do they work here?" Me: "Is this your first wedding?" Groomsman: "Yessss." Me: "Don't worry, you can't tell at all."
That made for a good laugh, and a great way to start the day if you ask me.
Hannah and Blake got married at Cross Keys Vineyard and had one of the most beautiful wedding days I've yet to witness. The day was laid-back, overflowing with love and joy, and I just know they had such a blast from beginning to end. Their reception was one for the books, for sure.
Thank you both so much for asking me to document such a wonderful day shared by all! You make for one stunning bride, Hannah, and Blake, congratulations on marrying such a gem! Enjoy your wedding photos!
Reason #2: Hannah is the bees knees. She put her wedding dress on OUTDOORS! GAH!
Reason #3: Hannah and Blake know how to make this photographer smile. They chose to do a FIRST SIGHT! For real guys, doing a first sight will change your wedding day....in the best possible way!
Loving this SO MUCH.
Reason #4: Hannah had these billy balls specially ordered for the wedding. They are my ABSOLUTE favorite florals to photograph. I might be a little biased because I had them in my wedding bouquet :)
Reason #5: The bridal party. Just look. You'd LOVE them too!
Reason #6: Off for more portraits! In the weeds. Love how they trusted me on this!
Reason #7: THIS CAKE.
Reason #8: This venue...new favorite! If you haven't checked it out yet, visit Cross Keys Vineyard! It's GORGEOUS out there.
Reason #9: Cake smash. Yeeeeeah, I LOVE them :) They hold a special place in my heart. Why wouldn't you want to smash cake in your new spouse's cake on your wedding day!? Seriously guys...why not!?
Reason #10: The insanely active dancefloor! These people know how to party!! One of my favorite receptions to date.
I spy a local photog making an appearance as a GUEST! And doing the Cupid Shuffle. NAME THAT PHOTOG! hahahaha, LOVE YOU!
The JMU crowd!
