Strong Mansion Wedding in Autumn || Jessica & Ben

Nestled in the chestnut-tree woods of Sugarloaf Mountain is a 3-story 1900’s mansion surrounded by landscaped gardens, a tranquil koi fish pond, and stone staircases. It’s on top of one of these stone staircases where Jessica & Ben held hands, committing their love & their futures to one another. Their wedding was an extra-special one for Hunter & I, we’ve known Jess & Ben for a few years now and couldn’t have been more excited to be by their side throughout the day. Not to mention their wedding style was FLAWLESS. Between the earthy fall decor, the SEVEN different kinds of cakes, and the Jesus-centered everything, we couldn’t have been more inspired on their October Sunday. And of course it’s always a bonus when we can shove the cameras in our friends’ faces when the dance hits the floor. Jess & Ben’s wedding story is one for our record books, not just for our life memories of their friendship but because of the transcendent peace & beauty of their day. Congratulations you two, we can’t wait for you to come home from your Colorado honeymoon!

Moody Friday the 13th Wedding || Julia + Daniel

It sure makes me giddy when a couple’s personalities shine through their wedding day. As a horror movie buff, Julia planned her & Daniel’s wedding day on Friday the 13th – complete with all the elegant moody vibes. Julia’s gorgeous vision came to life with copper pumpkins, deep burgundy florals, dark woods, & black touches to seal in that perfectly spooky & elegant fall feel. From beginning to end these two were so relaxed & full of laughter, a complete delight to be around. When we first adventured at their engagement session, the recurring joke was that I kept putting them deep in the trees surrounded by leaves. So it was only natural that we started off the same way, putting Daniel right in the thickets of floofy wheat grasses for their sweet first look. Then we climbed up to the rooftop where they held hands & vowed the rest of their lives to one another surrounded by their loved ones & a crazy beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay. Julia & Daniel, it was an absolute joy to capture your wedding story — congratulations you guys!
