Mount Ida Farm Wedding Videography

I knew Marie back in high school and when she reached out to me about doing wedding videography for her and Kyle’s wedding, I was so excited! She’s such a sweet person, and a fabulous artist herself! She also does wedding photography, so she knew the name of the game when things started to roll on her wedding day! 😃

Their wedding took place at Mount Ida Farm, with the reception in the Event Barn. The ceremony took place overlooking a beautiful pond surrounded by rolling hills of vineyards – it was so picturesque! I loved the little ring bearer and flower girl holding the “Here Comes The Bride” sign – since Marie is also a school teacher, it was sweet having small children there to celebrate with her and Kyle. All of the details and destinations chosen for their day matched Marie and Kyle so well, it was a joy to capture!

They had a great vendor team that made their day incredible!

Tuckahoe Woman’s Club Wedding Videography

Kelsea and Brian were ALL smiles on their wedding day (and probably all the time)! They were bubbling over with laughter and joy–the rain showers couldn’t even stop them from smiling! When it’s the day to marry your favorite person on the earth, I don’t think anything could have held back their joy. And that’s what I loved so much about these two.

What also stuck out to me about Kelsea and Brian is how great of friends they are together. They are seriously madly in love, but at the same time, they are silly together. There’s a child-likeness about the two of them that I love – the joy, the laughter, it’s freeing and contagious!

The story of how Brian proposed to Kelsea gives me such a happy feeling! They live in Richmond, VA , and they like to take walks around the Museum District, and always stop to hang out outside the VMFA. This is special to me because my husband and I used to do the same – evening walks around the VMFA just enjoying each other’s company and the cute little city. Brian planned a sweet picnic with just Kelsea at the VMFA. He also hired a photographer to take photos of the proposal. She was completely surprised when he bent down on one knee!

We had the opportunity to make a Documentary Feature Film for Kelsea and Brian that focused in on their love story – in longer length. We loved incorporating details about their journey – pulling from the amazing toasts that were made by the Best Man, Maid of Honor, and Father of the Bride (total tear jerker toast by the way). Their vows were also a genuine addition to their love story!

We couldn’t be happier for Kelsea and Brian, and are overwhelmed with joy that we got to work with such a sweet couple to tell their story. Enjoy the film!

Poplar Springs Inn Wedding Videography

Kati and I were serendipitously connected back in June, just ONE month before their big day! Kati is an amazing artist and actually knows my sister which is how we were connected! One day I was on Instagram and saw my sister post a picture of a painting that one of her friends made for her. I thought it was lovely and started following the artist that had created it, and lo and behold, it was Kati! When Kati saw that I was a cinematographer, she reached out right away because she had actually been praying for God to lead her to someone who could shoot their day! Isn’t it crazy how God brings people together in just the right time?!

Kati and Josh first met at a friend’s wedding rehearsal (I love when people meet through weddings, it’s kind of ironic!), where they got to know each other and begin their relationship. Four years later, July 22nd, Kati and Josh were married!

With Kati being an artist, you can only imagine the goodies she planned for their gorgeous wedding day. She handmade all of the gold leafed name cards, designed everything herself (invitations, seating chart, table numbers, etc.) and had huge canvas wrapped paintings on display at their reception. What a treat to attend such a momentous, meticulously crafted event!

Holly Chaple designed all florals and when you watch their film, you may just be blown away when you see the ceremony site!! I know I was! The veil of white curtains nestled between rows and rows of pine trees that leads into the ceremony site was absolutely magical. The altar located in front of an arbor filled with peonies, dahlias, and everything heavenly and gorgeous was all set as the center focus where they would say “I do”.

Poplar Springs Inn in Warrenton, Virginia, is one of those places hidden away that everyone should make a trip to visit (they also have a spa and restaurant with amazing food!). The landscape is beautiful with long stone walls and archways shaded among gigantic century-old trees. The setting perfectly matched Kati and Josh because they both exude a sense of timelessness in their character and relationship. What better place than a romantic historic Inn to celebrate the marriage of these two!

Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards Wedding VideographyCharlottesville, Virginia

To fully enjoy this film, you must know a little about Addison and Rob first! Addison was nominated as Miss Roanoke Valley in 2015 and I wouldn’t be surprised if she went on to become Miss America! She’s as genuinely kind as she is humbly beautiful. Rob, or I should say, Dr. Dufour is an anesthesiologist at UVA and is also incredibly kind and genuine. They both have a constant smile that I honestly don’t think will ever go away! They are the perfect prince and princess duo with how giddy and in love they are!!

Pippin Hill Vineyards was the perfect setting for these two. It’s where Rob proposed to Addison on a snowy day while warming by the fire. It’s only fitting they tie the knot there too! The backdrop of the foggy mountains and rolling hills with vines and lavender couldn’t have been more romantic. There were gigantic clouds rolling through the sky, but only raining once! The peace after the storm was stunning – there was even a rainbow that rounded itself directly over the vineyards!

The entire vendor team (listed below!) worked seamlessly together, and sitting down for dinner I didn’t feel like I was at work. Everyone genuinely loved what they were doing, and for a great reason. Addison and Rob deserve the best celebration and I think their day truly reflected the sweetness of their relationship.
