Steven + Amber || Early Mountain Vineyards - Madison, Virginia

YOU GUYS!!! I finally got to photograph a winter wedding, and it was every bit as magical as it sounds. (insert all the snow and heart-eyed emojis here). I'd like to apologize to the guests that didn't make it out to Charlottesville because of the snowfall, because I'd been dancing around with my pajamas inside out from the moment Amber said “January”.

Our backdrop was the absolutely beautiful Early Mountain Vineyard, and the day was as dynamic as it was beautiful. The morning was a silvery-grey from the fresh dusting that morphed in to blazing blue skies in the afternoon, and the roaring fireplaces and twinkling candlelight made the evening sparklingly cozy and intimate.

Shoutout to Amber's papa Edgar for not only shoveling off the patio at the bridal suite, but also bringing a much-needed delivery of chicken nuggets. Dad of the year!


Congratulations to these two, who definitely know how to bring love and light to one the darkest months of the year! Check out their full gallery here.
