Sam & Casey’s Wedding at Panorama Farms

Sam & Casey’s Wedding at Panorama Farms

We very frequently become friends with our clients if we didn’t know them before, and sometimes our clients start out as employees (as Eric did when he married Lora at Clifton Inn). So we were absolutely thrilled when our former production assistant, Sam, reached out to let us know she had recently gotten engaged to Casey. It was so nice gathering at the picturesque Panorama Farms just north of Charlottesville for their wedding, even if it was 87 degrees in October! As you can see, the happy couple kept their cool throughout their blissful day. Check out our favorite images from the day, then their complete gallery. The password is Sam’s maiden name and is case-sensitive.

Dear s&c,

Some of our favorite moments from your wedding include:

Maximizing your use of any breeze (or air conditioning, whatever the environment) to cool off before your ceremony. The laughter with both your bridesmaids and groomsmen throughout the afternoon. Nearly everything called for at least a smile. Your incredibly touching and tender First Sight. Seeing hot air balloons off in the distance after your ceremony. Your sister, Sam, serenading the two of you during your first dance. Your dad’s band playing tirelessly throughout the night. The quiet way you two slipped off by yourselves to feed each other cupcakes in lieu of cake (yup, we saw you!). The extreme close-up photo your dad took of you, Sam, and Casey during family portraits. Your hugs.

We couldn’t be happier that you have found each other and so honored you chose us to capture these memories for you. Congratulations, you two!

xoxo…
…a&b

 

Erin & Bryan’s Wedding : All in the Details

Today we’re celebrating Erin & Bryan’s gorgeous Spring vineyard wedding. Be sure to check out Part One if you missed it – this one is all about their beautiful and personal details!

The Dream Team:
– Floral Design:  Beehive Events, Shawn Marie Cossette
– Venue & Catering: Veritas, Chloe Hodson Frey
– Cake Artist: Favorite Cakes, Kathy Watkins
– Entertainment: Trademark Band
– Wedding Gown: Monique Lhuillier

Jade plants served as decoration *and* favors!

Erin and her Mom made hundreds of origami paper cranes to hang over the similarly adorned escort cards. SO cool!

Erin makes absolutely beautiful jewelry (Anne is the proud owner of several pieces!) and made earrings and charm bracelets for all her attendants. Each bridesmaid’s charm was stamped with a word or two that summarized their personality or uniqueness to Erin, such as Anchor or Free Spirit. Such a sweet and meaningful gift.

LOVE the inscription she put in the wedding ring she made for Bryan!

And an unforgettable evening was had by all. Congratulations again, Erin & Bryan!!!

…we’ll find you.  🙂

Dear e&b,

Erin, we’re so grateful for the friendship we’ve had over the years, and when you told us Bryan had proposed, we were just giddy with excitement for you both. The engagement portraits we did with you down in South Carolina sealed the deal and by that point we were just counting down the days until your wedding at Veritas Vineyards. We’ve seen a lot of very happy brides over the years, but the instant bubbliness you exuded at the vineyard on that beautiful Spring day as you walked through the door was contagious and set the mood for the rest of the evening’s festivities. Bryan, your Southern charm and easygoing nature was the perfect compliment and demonstrated so well, as if it were needed, just how much the two of you loved each other.

The extra touches you created for everyone, from Helen’s coffee cake to honor your grandmother, to the beautiful handmade jewelry you created as gifts for your bridesmaids (all 11 of them!), really added to the personality of your celebration. And oh, my goodness, those origami paper cranes you hung from the tree and had on the escort cards – WOW!! You know us well enough by now to know we get such reward from bearing witness to the love of our friends as well as the unique and personal touches added by each couple, and boy, the two of you made it easy for us!

We loved every minute of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Congratulations, and our very best wishes for a loving and longstanding marriage!

With Joy,
…a&b

PS – We *know* Bryan won’t need that reminder on his ring, but we LOVE it anyway!
