Virginia Vineyard Wedding

This beautiful October Wedding in Crozet, Virginia had all the fall feels. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, King Family Vineyards was the perfect dream venue for Ariel and Jon.

The sky was overcast. By the time the ceremony was over around 6:30pm, the sun had already set. As we walked over to the wine trail for a portrait session, we realized that we were quickly losing daylight. I made a decision to forgo my flash and shoot with the remaining natural light that we had to work with. Ariel and Jon kept things traditional and did not do a First Look so this was the only shot I had in capturing their formal Wedding Portraits. I was so amazed by the end result. The portrait of Ariel holding up her flowers to cover her and Jon’s face has become one of my favorite go-to pose for all my couples.

On October 9, 2015, Ariel and Jon’s said yes to forever. I’ve known Ariel since 2009 and I was practically adopted into her wonderful Italian family. She has a total of 10 siblings and I was the “Asian” big brother that they never had. Five of her sisters were her Bridesmaids. When Ariel had approached me to photograph her and Jon’s Wedding Day, I was so honored and thrilled to capture it.

Here’s a closer look at their Wedding Day.
