This past weekend I had the honor of capturing Stephanie and Adam’s wedding day! I met them back in 2017 when they were part of a wedding party, now three years later, it’s their day, and it was amazing! Traveling down to Southwest Virginia and the beautiful mountains and hills, that would be the most magnificent backdrop for their images! Many say relationships that begin as friendships are the best, which is just what occurred with them! They met their first year at Virginia Tech; they lived across from each other in the dorms (we took photos!), they were both RAs for the next three years in the same dorm and remained friends throughout! Fast forward a few years, and she was driving through Northern Virginia and reached out to her ‘friend’ Adam – well, that was the turning point – seeing each other through different eyes, they knew there was something there! That friendship that had started back in college years earlier sparked a true love story which they are now living!
They said I do at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Blacksburg. From there, off to Virginia Tech Campus, we went! Visiting their dorm hall and taking images where it all started! Stopping by the Pylons on campus for wedding party photos and lucky enough, the Hokie bird was there and snuck into some images! Stopping on our way to Mountain Lake Lodge for the reception at a gorgeous overlook and then headed to the party! After all, was said and done, we ventured back to the overlook for some later into sunset images, just the two of them, and it couldn’t have been more perfect!
