blake + justin - blue ridge parkway engagement session

last fall, terry and i drove up to virginia to meet blake and justin at the entrance to the blue ridge parkway for their engagement session. we followed each other along stopping at various locations and scenic overlook areas. it was such a beautiful afternoon, relatively balmy until the sun started to set and then the wind picked up. we were all chilled to the bone, once we wrapped things up!  however the location was perfect - it was only fitting as blake and justin both work for the virginia department of forestry. so naturally, they are both into the great outdoors & wanted their session to reflect that. i was thrilled when they suggested the park as a location!  they are getting married this coming weekend at king family vineyards just west of charlottesville, virginia and i can't wait to work with this fabulous couple again - they are so much fun and easy going!

gardens at gray gables - jenny + justin - 10.26.13 wedding

many of you may have seen jenny & justin's wedding featured in the current fall-winter 2014 issue of triad weddings magazine. if not be sure to take a look at the online version! i have plenty of printed copies, if anyone would like one - please let me know.

jenny & justin's fall wedding certainly was lovely & they were such a sweet couple, whom i enjoyed working with. the ceremony was held at their church in oak ridge & just a few miles down the road in summerfield, was the location of their reception which was held under a big tent out on the patio at the gardens at gray gables. cocktail hour followed by dinner, dancing, and a photobooth kept the evening fun & festive for all of the guests!

the flowers & decor provided by emily jean interiors & weddings were really colorful and creative. the team at visions catering did an amazing job - the food was delicious!  the dessert table and a small wedding cake & cupcakes were all DIY and such a big hit. and then there was the photobooth which was hopping the entire evening, as was the dance floor. the guys at triad DJ & events really outdid themselves.  adrienne and i had the best time capturing their memories - it really was a blast!

the newlyweds recently learned that justin had an opportunity to work abroad & and so they jumped on it! they'll be living in adelaide, australia for the next few months, returning to the states just in time for the holidays. i, of course, told her to take lots of pictures while there! and when they do return, i hope to have their album waiting for them - and to hear all about their adventure down under!
