Cody & Olivia | Lynchburg Wedding Photographer


As they sat just one seat apart on the track team bus, he charmed her with his 100-watt smile and the seed was forever planted. Weeks passed and their friendship grew. Four years later, best friends finally gave into love and planned to walk down the aisle to make it official. 

If there's one thing Cody & Olivia do well together, it's enjoy life. They laugh so much in the presence of one another. They are both hard workers and encourage each another to be the best they can be. Their athletic backgrounds no doubt contribute to their matching competitiveness and drive. Together, they love to travel to their respective hometowns (she a Canadian, he a Floridian), enjoy weekly date nights and cuddle together around a warm campfire. 

Together, in the presence of their family and friends, Cody and Olivia were wed and celebrated with a beautiful reception at Glencliff Manor. Tints of navy and splashes of pear green were perfect compliments to the garden setting surrounding Glencliff. The rain held off long enough for a super-sweet first look and an outdoor ceremony, and surrounded us once we moved under the pavilion, creating the most romantic setting after dark. The day was absolutely perfect and I was honored to work with such a beautiful couple, inside and out.
