Josh and Gabrielle’s wedding at Glencliff Manor was a classic autumn wedding with many fall elements throughout the day. Their friends and family brought the love and support while Josh and Gabrielle shared so much joy all day long. It was wonderful!

Kellen & Ashley | Fredericksburg Wedding Photographer

This time last year I was shooting Kellen & Ashley's wedding while crossing my fingers that all my activity wouldn't put me into labor juuuust yet. After their wedding, I had three weddings in queue, one right around the corner and a baby coming! As you can imagine, all of this contributed to a quiet blog. So I figured Kellen & Ashley's first wedding anniversary was as good a time as any to relive their wedding here on the blog! I LOVE these two! They are one of the most laid-back couples I know. They have both been through some hard times apart, and together they help one another focus on the good in life. Ashley is so down-to-earth and Kellen's adoration of her makes them such a positive, uplifting couple to be around. I really enjoyed each chance I had to spend time with them. And I am excited because thanks to Facebook, Ashley and I have been able to keep in touch and they are expecting their first baby in 2013! I am looking forward to hanging out with them around the holidays for some maternity pictures, so keep an eye out for those in the next few months!

Lucky for me, Ashley loves rainy days and had the best attitude about the rain on her wedding day (although it seems this year she's thinking they have jinxed this weekend to forever be rainy!). Because of the rain, we took advantage of covered porches and brightly-lit hallways for many photo ops. The day was so beautiful (of course) and had a lot of unique touches. One of my favorite things was that as Ashley came down the aisle the DJ played a recording of her voice talking to her dad. Queue the tears!! All of the vendors involved came together to make this day so beautiful and so fun for Kellen, Ashley and all of their guests.

Take a peek into this day last year:

Pierce and Sarah, pt. II | Lynchburg Wedding Photographer

These two were made for each other. As they say, opposites attract, and Pierce and Sarah are a beautiful example of this. They met and started dating six years prior to their wedding day so they have been through a lot together. Sarah loves Pierce's outgoing personality and her sweet demeanor balances perfectly with his zest for life. Together they LOVE baseball (so much so their cake topper included them wearing Red Sox jerseys!), their sweet dogs, and simply enjoying each other's company. All of this was evident at their wedding between the personal touches throughout the day and the way they enjoyed one another's company during every shared moment. Is there another word for fairytale? Because I feel like I have seriously overused it to describe this wedding. But, you guys, it truly was. The light sparkled perfectly on this couple. There was a horse and carriage... a prince and his princess... love and marriage. Just... perfection.

The rest of their wedding day story unfolds...

Pierce and Sarah, pt. I | Lynchburg Wedding Photographer

Another double wedding post coming right up! Sarah and Pierce had such a beautiful day that I cannot for the life of me narrow down their pictures! I shouldn't be surprised, though. When I first arrived at Glencliff Manor and connected with the coordinator on site there, Teresa, it was a cloudy day. I said something along the lines of "just crossing my fingers for clear sky!" Teresa immediately repsonded "Oh. This is Glencliff, it doesn't rain here. We have had one wedding rained out in 29 years." Well... I am beyond grateful at how right she was. Not only did it NOT rain at all - but the sun came through the clouds as soon as the ceremony started. It was like nature's blessing on the beautiful couple! And seriously, I follow almost all of the local photographers on some sort of social media and while they were all sharing instagrams and sneak peeks of cloudy, rainy wedding days I shared this:
