Sarah and Matt’s wedding day was a chilly breezy one, but I’ll take a cold wedding day over a wet one any day! Their wedding day was sweet and laid back, just like they are! They even incorporated their love for dogs (they have 3!) in their wedding in more ways than one!
Well, I guess Fall only stopped in for a short visit as it seems winter is already on the doorstep! Between the weather and all the Christmas things already everywhere you look, it definitely feels like winter! We had a chilly and windy day for this weekend’s wedding, but I’ll take chilly over wet for a wedding any day! And as the year quickly winds to a close, so does our little one’s arrival date!! Eekk!!
So I am slightly obsessed with this session. From the light to the couple to the setting, it was all just perfect!! It was the perfect way to wrap up a very busy weekend of shooting!! We had a gorgeous fall afternoon at some of my favorite local spots to shoot for Janelle and Jess’ Virginia Beach engagements!
Weddings and engagements sessions have taken me all over Virginia and have allowed me to explore some really cool places that I wouldn’t have otherwise! That’s especially the case for Amy and Matt’s engagement session. With all the people I’ve known that have attended Virginia Tech, I can’t believe I have never set foot in Blacksburg until this weekend! And even though I was literally only there for their session, it was a pretty neat visit because we got to go into Lane Stadium all by ourselves!! No big deal!
You may have noticed that I am often in the mountains on the weekends for wedding and shoots. Especially this year. Doing so has really deepened my appreciation for the beauty of the Virginia mountains. I went to college for 4 years in the mountains (Go Dukes!), but never really appreciated the beauty of the scenery all around us. That’s not the case for Rachel and Matt. They have a deep appreciation for the mountains which is why they chose to get married at a venue that really highlighted that beauty! Even though neither of them or their families even live in the area!
What a weekend! 1 wedding, 2 engagement sessions and 11 hours on the road in just 48hours! My heart is full, while my body is tired. The aches and pains that come with the later stages of pregnancy have officially arrived! I can’t remember what it’s like to get into the car or put on a pair of shoes with letting out a little squeal of pain! But I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world! Our little babe is worth every ache!
