I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.

Fiesta Wedding Inspiration | Snead’s Asparagus Farm, Fredericksburg, VA

It’s Cinco de Mayo and what better way to celebrate than with a fiesta? I’m a taco girl and I love bright colors so this fiesta wedding inspiration photo shoot was a dream come true. The shoot was held at Snead’s Asparagus Farm in Fredericksburg which is one of my favorite places. If you’ve never been, check it out. I’ve been visiting since I was a young child back when you left money in a box on the front porch for your pumpkins. That’s changed a bit, I think they take credit cards now, but the welcoming feel of the place is still the same and the barns and fields made for the perfect backdrop for these photos.

Darling D’s Events went all out, channeling the fiesta theme through the table decor, colorful pinatas and more. Florals from The Floral Palette added to the theme along with a bouquet from Virginia Flora and paper flowers from Something Borrowed. Caroline Street Catering put together an amazing taco bar, complimented by a dessert bar from Erin Lozier and an appetizer display from Elegant Cuisines Catering. The cake was made by Sorby Sweets and had the best decoration along with little sombrero cake toppers. It was perfect!

Grab yourself a margarita and a taco and check out the highlights below. They will leave you completely inspired to throw your own bright, colorful fiesta inspired wedding complete with pinatas and all. And then email me, because I’d love to capture it.
