This past weekend, I had the great pleasure of second shooting with the kind and talented Rebekah of Rebekah Loftis Photography. I headed up to Roanoke, Virginia on Friday night, since we were getting off to early start on Saturday, and I have to admit, it was definitely nice to have girls getaway and chat it up with Rebekah like two 11-year-old girls at a sleepover. We talked about photography, our own weddings, college, our husbands, jobs... you would have never known that we had just met one another for the first time that very day. I am so thankful that this industry has allowed to me to make so many new friends that I otherwise probably would have never known!
Walter and Lila, surely one of the most adorable couples I have ever seen, were married in a beautiful autumn outdoor ceremony at the Maison Beliveau Bed and Breakfast in Blacksburg. Their wedding was filled with so many beautiful details, all designed by Lila herself. There were blue mason jars as aisle decor, beautiful floral arrangements created by bridesmaid and friend Lynn of FloraLynn Designs (some of which included cotton bolls - I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS IDEA), table numbers with photos of the bride and groom at the age of the number, and even Jones soda customized with photos and drawings of the lovely couple.
I have to admit, spending so many weekends as the lead shooter, it's kind of nice to "relax", be told what to do, and just enjoy photographing a beautiful wedding. Here are a few of my favorites that I captured throughout the day...
IN LOVE with Lila's blue Manolos! They're also the same ones that adorned Carrie Bradshaw's feet in the Sex and the City movie.... SWOON!!
Walter and Lila's black labrador, Izzy, even had a part in the wedding.
