Brittany & Charlie’s Wedding

Beautiful Wedding at The Williamsburg Winery:

I have been wanting to shoot a wedding at this gorgeous venue for a while! Being a Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer, most of my weddings are at the beach and it is so nice to switch things up and have a venue with such cute rustic charm and a beautiful landscape. This wedding was in the early spring, so we didn’t get to see the vineyards at their best, but we definitely lucked out with warm and dry weather and the perfect sunset. This venue was also just recently remodeled with new lighter wood flooring throughout to brighten it up. The wedding staff, Jenny and Kate, are very sweet and fun to work with and are there to ensure all events runs seamlessly.

Brittany & Charlie met in the military when they were stationed overseas. A couple years ago in their travels, they went to a winery and saw a wedding taking place and decided that someday, they would have their wedding at a winery too. Naturally they picked Williamsburg Winery as their venue for their wedding.

They had a very intimate event with only close friends and relatives in attendance. This couple is very sweet and easygoing, so I really had a great time capturing all the moments that unfolded on their big day. Brittany & Charlie had their first look in the wine cellar before the ceremony. I set up all my lighting beforehand and brought the groom down to wait for his bride. I was able to get so many great images from this moment with them, it was really a challenge to pick my favorites! They are such a photogenic pair and their interactions with each other are something you would see in the movies. Brittany has a great smile and is so cute when she laughs, as you will see in many of the images below.

The day continued with the ceremony and exchange of vows inside the venue.  Afterward, we took the family photos and had the opportunity to take more pictures outside as the sun was setting. We came back to the reception where the bride and groom had their first dance and the night took off with dancing and good times for all. For the cake cutting, Brittany & Charlie used a ninja sword! It was so funny watching them using this instead of the standard cake knife. They ended the evening with an official send off outside as the bride and groom walked away with lanterns in hand.

Weddings like these are why I love what I do! Being around such a cute couple in love just puts a big smile on my face and keeps me floating on a cloud for days! Thank you so much Brittany & Charlie for choosing me to be part of your wedding day, I had so much fun and love all the images we created! 🙂

A special thank you to all the vendors that made this day a dream come true:
