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.

Rustic Elegant Wedding Inspiration | Orange Virginia Wedding Photographer

Back in August, on what had to be one of the warmest days of the year, I attended the Southern Grace Workshop hosted by Sarah Houston Photography at Rounton Farm.

The farm has become a popular local wedding destination, offering a beautiful barn with gorgeous scenic views nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition to the barn, the farm offers a separate bridal suite and a groomsmen lounge.

The barn was the perfect space for the shoot organized by Sarah, which featured a rustic elegant wedding vibe with beautiful candelabras, gold-adorned china and vintage details. It was the perfect inspiration for any bride planning a rustic farm wedding with a twist.
