Lindsay & Robby’s Richmond VA Vineyard Wedding

Sep 23

I had been waiting ever so impatiently for Lindsay & Robby’s since I fell in love with them at their engagement session at the beginning of the year.  These two are just really something.  I knew their wedding day would be the perfect way to start my Fall 2015 wedding season!

And it did not disappoint.  When I went to visit Robby & the guys, I could tell he was a little amped and nervous to get to the First Look!  It’s always so funny to see how much the groom relaxes after he gets to see his beautiful bride.  Once he had Lindsay in his arms, Robby looked like he took a real breath for the first time that day.  The rest of the day was a breeze, with just the slightest bit of rain during the ceremony and one of the most epic dance parties of all time to end the night.

Shout out to Britny & Ashley from the Lou Stevens Glam Squad for dolling up Lindsay & her bridesmaids!

Lindsay, you are the most stunning bride!!

The boys & I had a really fantastic time taking their “getting ready” photos.  I didn’t have to direct Robby at all . . . his groomsmen had all the right things to say!

We got really dramatic with their photos . . .

And THEN! It was First Look time!

The First Look gave us SO much time for bride & groom portraits!  It was amazing — Robby & Lindsay’s infatuation with each other shows so well.  🙂

Come ON you two!!

This tree was giving me serious southern vibes and I loved it!

I hadn’t had a request for THIS before, but it was hilarious!

After all the portrait fun, it was time to run over to James River Cellars Winery for a beautiful ceremony!

MARRIED!  I’m obsessed with walking down the aisle shots!

This cake table sign really spoke to me. 😉

This is my new favorite grandparent shot. 🙂

The speeches, as you can see, were excellent!

Then it was dancing time!  And let me tell you . . . there is no party like a DJ mFace party.

Shout out to Honey with Kim Moody Design for being absolutely amazing!

Lindsay & Robby,

I cannot tell you enough how fun and wonderful it was to be your wedding photographer!  I hope Aruba was amazing, and I know we’ll be running into each other more around RVA!
