Congratulation to Dena + Jess on their lovely wedding day this past Saturday at the stunning Oak Ridge Estate in Arrington, Virginia.
We are all so thrilled to have this styled shoot featured on Borrowed and Blue today!
Imagine a love so strong that you’re SWEPT AWAY… that feeling brought together a host of talented vendors to Gaie Lea, a brand new event venue and manor home in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Graceful, southern details punctuate the storyline for this styled shoot, envisioning a gorgeous couple eloping to the Virginia’s countryside for an intimate celebration of their nuptials.
From moment of arrival to their glorious breakfast in bed, enjoy this last nod to winter’s pristine beauty and be warmed by the sweet love that inspired it.
Many thanks to all the amazing vendors involved!

Anna has been my assistant on many weddings and it was such a treat to be the photographer for her wedding day! With lovely touches of gold, blush and navy it was a classic and chic October wedding. I loved knowing that Anna knew exactly what I was doing and therefore it was an easy, relaxed day for us all! Some of my favorite portraits were earlier in the day with her sisters. Of course her gorgeous veil created some stunning moments with the newlyweds!

Jane + Brody tied the knot on a gorgeous fall day last October. They had a beautiful wedding full of vibrant color even with the changing leaves. I love that Jane picked a bold purple color for her girls dresses! Enjoy!
Kate + Andrew's wedding was such a lovely day including a sweet treat from Carpe Donut later that night! Family and friends showered them with love and you could feel it radiating from everyone. I am still in love with Kate's stunning bouquet by Southern Blooms. Enjoy this festive wedding as my last post of 2013! I look forward to what 2014 will bring!

Bea + Jeff's July wedding celebration was a beautiful, family oriented affair. There were so many lovely family heirlooms from the lovely arrangement of photos of their parents and grandparents, to the gorgeous necklace that Bea wore that day. I loved the soft flow of her gown, the cathedral length veil and her delicate color palette. The groomsmen were dapper in navy suits with pops of yellow in their boutonnieres. It was a full filled day full of love and laughter as we dodged the rain.

I just adore The Pretty Blog. When I submitted my second wedding of the year to them I had my finger and toes crossed that they would love it just as much as I did. I am absolutely thrilled to have Sarah + Alex's classic spring wedding featured there! If you haven't visited The Pretty Blog yet, now is your chance to fall in love like I did. It's not only a beautiful wedding blog, but it goes beyond that. It truly is a blog that embodies LOVE | LIVE | EAT.
Erin + Bryan threw a sweet southern wedding hosted at their dear friends' horse farm, with beautiful touches of yellow and grey. The weather couldn't have been more perfect on this summer day.
