Elegant December Wedding

It was such a joy to capture Alexandra and Taylor’s elegant December wedding in Charlottesville, VA.  This couple was so sweet and refreshing to be around.  They truly enjoyed being with their friends and family on their special day.

THE DETAILS

Alexandra and her bridesmaids got ready at her family’s home in Keswick – just outside of Charlottesville. We used this location for the bridesmaids’ portraits as well. Meanwhile, the guys prepared and had portraits done at the Greencroft Club. I loved the colors of this wedding – the guys’ blue suits with red ties, along with the red florals and bridesmaids’ dresses were absolutely gorgeous.

Alexandra and Taylor said they wanted an elegant December wedding that was intentional and felt like them.  Based on the emotions throughout the day, I’d say the accomplished exactly what they were hoping for.  Both the bride and groom are very close to their families, so candid images of their interactions on this special day were very important to them. Tears of joy were flowing all day, especially between the bride and her father during their emotional “first look.”  It was such a special and touching moment to photograph.

THE CEREMONY + RECEPTION

The ceremony also took place in Charlottesville, VA at All Saints Anglican Church located just beside the Greencroft Club where the reception followed.

The Greencroft Club served hors d’oeuvres to guests while Alexandra’s sister and Maid of Honor, Ava, and Taylor’s best friend, Malcolm, gave toasts. The bride’s father also gave a toast and shed tears again during his heartfelt blessing after the first dances.
