Charlottesville Wedding Photographer: Michelle + Stephen

Michelle and Stephen have such great style that I just knew their wedding day was going to be nothing short of amazing. And it was. Every little detail from Michelle’s ethereal dress, to the soft mocha shade of the bridesmaid dresses, to the orchids in the bouquets and boutonnieres, was all so perfect. Of course it’s also hard to go wrong when your venue is the Clifton Inn! It was great working with Defne who helped coordinate a flawless day and the ladies over at Pat’s Floral Designs who always do gorgeous work!

Daphne Latham, you did an awesome job with Michelle’s hair and make-up!

It’s always so exciting for me to walk into the room where my brides are getting ready. I love seeing the details that makes each of my brides feel the most beautiful. Is it a simple gown, or one made of European lace? Will she have heels in a bold shade? Or traditional white satin. It’s always a surprise, and a fun one for me.

I instantly fell in love with Michelle’s Jim Hjelm gown and Jimmy Choo wedges!



Meanwhile John was with Stephen and the guys as they were getting ready.


Such a handsome groom!

Back in the carriage house, the girls were putting on the finishing touches…

Even Teddy, Stephen and Michelle’s corgi, was dressed to impress!

Outside perfect November light was waiting for us….

Michelle, you are absolutely stunning!

Love these two shots of Michelle with her sister and mother.


Lovely, lovely, lovely!

The Madison Trio did such a wonderful job providing music for the ceremony.

Love her smile!


There was so much love and support surrounding Michelle and Stephen throughout their day. These two are truly blessed by a great group of friends and family!

The happy couple looking oh so fine on their wedding day….

Love this bouquet!

Don’t be a stranger. We’ve got the rest of Stephen and Michelle’s swoon-worthy Clifton Inn wedding coming to the blog on Monday!
Un abrazo fuerte,
