Jessica & Allen's Charlottesville Engagement Session, Charlottesville Virginia Wedding Photographer Sarah Houston

Sometimes you just gotta roll with it when it comes to engagement sessions. We started out at another location, but it didn’t quite work out to our favor-so luckily right around the corner was the Monticello Trail! It was kind of toasty, but Jessica & Allen still looked super adorable and we had a blast creating these engagement photos! Here are a few of my favorite highlights, I’ll be meeting up with them again in November so stay tuned for more of these cuties!

Ashley & Paul's Castle Hill Cider Wedding, Charlottesville Virginia Wedding Photographer Sarah Houston

I always forget how hot Virginia gets in the summer time, so when Ashley & Paul’s wedding came around on August 3rd I was welcomed to Castle Hill Cider with a nice 90 degree day-hahaha! I am glad that the rain decided to stay away for their day:) Even though it was toasty the day still turned out to be amazing, from all her gorgeous details like this invite suite by Line Ave Calligraphy & her Essence of Australia wedding dress that fit her like a glove to the adorable cookies of Lucy “lulu” their chocolate lab! It really was a magical day and they danced the night away with a live band (Dance Candy from RVA) which really made the party. Logan Paige Events ROCKED it out and truly was a joy to work with again and The Catering Outfit made sure no one left hungry with their delicious food. The Posey Detail did a phenomenal job on on the gorgeous florals and A More Beautiful You made all the girls look absolutely breathtaking-the heat didn’t stand a chance!

Vendors: Festive Fare & MS Events Cville (Rentals), Blue Ridge Event Production (Lighting & Draping), Blue Ridge Tours (Transportation) & Chandler’s Bakery (Baked goods & Cake!)

Here are some awesome inspirations for your next soiree with a lovely light & airy pastel color palette, I love the way that the reception space was transformed into a more elegant southern style straight from Charleston, SC:
