Katie & Jay - Married at Smith Mountain Lake | Central Virginia Wedding Photographer

In the words of Taylor Swift, today was a fairytale.  And I have to say, Katie and Jay's wedding day was definitely a fairytale.  Katie looked stunning in her dress, and Jay looked dapper in his tux.  However, Mother Nature tried to have her way that day.  Days prior to everyone arriving to Bernard's Landing Resort, we all received an email from Katie that the entire wedding day was being shifted due to the pending storms set to roll in later the day of the wedding.  

The next day went off without a hitch.  The girls gathered in the Matron of Honor's suite for hair, makeup and mimosas, and the guys gathered in the Best Man's suite for some grooming, shots and laughs. We nearly got away from the rain and the crazy storms, but it eventually rolled in. But did it stop everyone from partying? Heck no! Most of the guests that were staying on the property went back to their condos, changed into comfy clothes and continued to party through the rest of the night!

Katie & Jay, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your special day.  And thank you to Jamey of Jamey Brown Photography for second shooting with me! You definitely kept the guys in check for me and Katie!

Katie - Bridals at Holly Ridge Manor | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

I am sooooo happy that I can finally share this session with you guys! Katie and Jay were married on June 21st at Bernard's Landing Resort at Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, Virginia.  I have to admit, it was such an awesome wedding! Despite the crazy weather that made its appearance that weekend, Katie and Jay and their friends and family. Can't wait to share their wedding with you! But first, check out Katie's bridals we did at Holly Ridge Manor in Virginia Beach.  Since we had Goliath a part of the engagement session, we had to have his little brother, Ghost in his mommy's bridal session!
