Oh my heart. These two are simply the sweetest. From our very first emails, I was smitten with their love and kind personalities. Throughout the months they’ve continued to send me sweet notes in the mail “just because” and I love the friendship that we now share. I’ve mentioned before, but I LOVED getting to head back to Charlottesville, Virginia to photograph Kelly & Will’s engagements and wedding at Keswick Vineyards. Each time I’ve traveled there I swoon left and right at how beautiful the area and property is. We even ventured into the back fields for more portrait locations and I’m telling you, the vineyard couldn’t be any more gorgeous if it tried. Plus the staff at Keswick Vineyards is top notch! Both weddings I’ve photographed there have been relaxed and the couple didn’t have to worry about a thing! With how much goes on behind the scenes at a wedding, they do such a great job making it run with ease for everyone involved. I felt myself getting teary-eyed on many occasions throughout the day, especially the personalized vows. Their guests came from not only across the country, but around the world, and it was the perfect personal and emotional day. There are so many things I could write about, like how they made me feel like part of the family the entire day and wouldn’t let me photograph until I tried an apple cider donut (YES, they had a donut truck on SITE at the reception!) So thank you Will & Kelly for the honor of photographing your sweet & perfect love. A special thank you to Bethany for traveling with me to Virginia to help capture the day! There are SO many images I could have shared (and these images were harder to pick out than I care to admit), but here is a little snippet of the beginning of Kelly & Will’s life together as husband and wife. So much love. xox.
I love how personal the wedding was, Will’s Uncles officiated the wedding ceremony
The joining of both families together – I just love this image so much.
Kelly is South African and brought in these gorgeous South African flowers into the arrangements. I love the texture it has!
Vendor’s I loved working with!
