Elliot + Annalee {Love at the Villa} | East Coast Wedding Photographer| Emily Marie Photography

I have known Annalee since high school, and she always seemed like that cool laid back chick who was always chill.  Well, they always say that people's true traits come out on their wedding day, and my original assumption of her, even from that long ago, held true.

Annalee and Elliot are a very laid back couple, and compliment each other perfectly.  Their wedding day wasn't stressful, rushed, or at all hectic, and I was so glad for that!  Not only did everyone have a fabulous time, but we had plenty of time for gorgeous romantic portraits of the two of them, which I am also grateful for!

From her vintage J. Crew wedding dress, to the crown of roses she wore, Annalee was a stunning vision.  And Elliot, in his well-cut gray suit, was nothing less than the most handsome groom.  Their wedding day was full of love and light and family and friends, and I know that their lives will be, as well!

So, as their wedding gallery is soon to be released, enjoy this look further into their gorgeous wedding day at Villa Franca Estates.

Ariel {Rainy Day Bridals} - Dennis Vineyards, Albemarle, NC

Ariel is such an amazing free spirit!  These bridals are such a small reflection of all the beauty she has.  Now that her (INCREDIBLE) wedding has come and gone, I can share these bridal portraits.  Nothing was going to stop us from capturing these gorgeous bridal portraits of Ariel.  Not the cold, not the rain, and not even a wardrobe malfunction (yeah... not on the bride... on me).  Her and her wonderful entourage of family and friends were a riot, and really set the tone for the day, and let me get a hint of what I was in for at the wedding, but you'll get a glimpse into that later.  For now, just check out this beauty!
