Jennifer and Saul’s wedding was our last official summer wedding, and what better way to say good-bye to summer than to shoot a wedding at beautiful Veritas Vineyard? It had been pouring rain all day long, but just as we got into the car to drive to Veritas, the clouds began to part and rays of gorgeous sunshine cascaded across the sky. Needless to say, it turned out to be a picture perfect afternoon!
John began the day down in the wine cellar with the guys…
Meanwhile, I was upstairs in the bridal suite with Jennifer and her girls…
I love the look on Jennifer’s mom’s face!
A quick peek outside as the guests began to arrive….
Here is what they saw…
I was seriously swooning over the floral arrangements and bouquets put together by the fabulous Amy Webb of Blue Ridge Floral Design!
DIY program fans. LOVE!
Before the ceremony began, we took a quick tour around the ballroom to get some shots of the reception decor.
A huge shout out to Albemarle Baking Company for this gorgeous masterpiece!
Once all of the guests were seated, it was time for the ceremony to begin.
It was really special that Saul’s dad got to officiate the wedding.
What a gorgeous view!!!
The kiss from my angle…
Husband and wife! Just look at those smiles!
The kiss and recessional from John’s angle…
After we sent the bridal party on to cocktail hour, John and I stuck around with Jennifer and Saul for our favorite part of the day – portraits with the bride and groom! We couldn’t have asked for a better day, better scenery, better light or a better couple!
Of course we meandered over to the vineyard…
