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.

Kayla + Keith | Cove at Fawn Lake Wedding

Kayla and Keith’s Cove at Fawn Lake wedding was beautiful and full of unique details. The Cove at Fawn Lake is attached to the country club of Fawn Lake, an upscale gated residential community, and features a large ballroom with an outdoor, waterfront ceremony site. It’s a great space, although fairly chilly in February. Kayla and Keith thought ahead on that one though and offered their guests personalized blankets especially for use during the ceremony.

The blankets were only one of the special elements featured during the day. The couple had a large balloon installation welcoming guests, as well as adding pops of color to the bridal suite, and throne-style chairs at their sweetheart table. Kayla and Keith’s color choices of emerald green, gold and ivory added an additional regal touch to the day. Their love of baseball was highlighted with baseball menus on each plate, a baseball-themed cake topper and a wooden home plate guestbook. I love when couples add fun, personal elements to their wedding day so ya’ll know I was excited!

Other personal elements included a song sung during the processional by Kayla’s cousin with family members walking down the aisle with pictures of the couple’s deceased grandparents. Kayla also had a photo of her late grandmother in her bouquet and the couple, along with their super adorable children, had a sand ceremony solidifying their commitment as a family.

Then it was on to the reception with dinner and dancing, including a cloud-style first dance. Beautiful!

Here are some of my favorites from the day!
