Hill City Bride | Virginia Wedding Blog » a wedding blog to inspire brides

This Lynchburg Virginia wedding has so many gorgeous elements – a stunning bride, the color purple (which I’m really into right now for some reason!) and a puppy. Todd and Anna’s wedding is so lovely, and Anna is an event planner herself.

This couple had almost given up hope on finding “the one” as Todd is in his 40s and Anna in her 30s. They both were on Match.com, which sealed their fate! They bonded over Mexican food and helping others, and after only three months of dating, they became engaged. When Todd proposed, he even gave Anna’s dog, Belle, a rhinestone collar because he had fallen in love with her, too. So sweet! They even had a signature drink at their reception called “The Bellerini” named after the pup, and of course they served Mexican inspired food. This couple and their pup now resides happily in Richmond.

Here are some of my favorite things about this Lynchburg Virginia wedding today.

  • I’m not kidding when I say I’m loving purple hues right now! The plum incorporated into this wedding is gorgeous!
  • Ribbon flower bouquets are a great way to go if you would like to hold on to your bouquet long after the wedding. These were designed in plum and cream with rhinestone brooches attached.
  • I love it when I see something I’ve never seen before! Take note of the cute photo of the bridesmaids’ shoes lined up in front of the fireplace. They are all wearing the same dress, but their personal style shines through with their shoe choices for the day. What a fun photo!
  • This Lynchburg Virginia wedding has so much emotion. From intimate moments getting ready (I love Anna’s braided, twisted wedding updo!) to a pre-wedding prayer, there are so many meaningful times. They even chose to do a first look, no peek before the wedding – adorable!
  • Adorable doggie Belle even got to wear her own wedding dress – such a cute idea.
  • Wedding guests were able to give the new couple advice via “keys to a happy marriage” which is a fun alternative to a guest book.
  • What a fun getaway car! Their vehicle made for fun images and an impactful exit from their wedding.

Enjoy this Lynchburg Virginia wedding today!

Ah, Virginia, you have my heart! The scenery is so lovely with the mountains and fields, and all of that beauty can be realized in Central Virginia’s wedding venues as you will see in Matt & Allie’s Sorella Farms e-session photographed by Demi Mabry Photography.

First, here is a little about this adorable couple. Both Matt and Allie grew up in Lynchburg. They actually met at church when they were in 6th grade youth group. It wasn’t until their 8th grad year that Matt finally got up the courage to ask Allie to be his girlfriend. They were even standing next to her locker. How cute is that?? After 8 plus years, they are finally going to tie the knot. So fun!

There’s so much to love about this Sorella Farms e-session today!

  • If you’ve never been to Sorella Farms, it’s absolutely beautiful as you will see in these photos. Expansive fields and stunning views are complimented by a pond and a beautiful barn – perfect for your wedding day (or your engagement session). The ladies there are super sweet, and there is even a house to utilize for getting ready on the wedding day. It’s a wonderful place!
  • This couple ADORES each other. You can just tell from the images. The way Matt looks at Allie, and his kiss on her head melts my heart. What is it about when a guy kisses you on the head, girls? It’s just so sweet and romantic.
  • Allie’s off the shoulder dress is both lovely and on trend, and her white lace is beautiful, too. They chose the perfect outfits for the colors and background of Sorella Farms.

Without further due, enjoy a peek into Matt and Allie’s Sorella Farms e-session. Enjoy!

Roanoke is a lovely place! With it’s gorgeous downtown area, you can have an urban vibe, yet on the outskirts of the city there are lush farms and beautiful landscapes. It’s the perfect place to plan a wedding as you will see with this Roanoke, Virginia wedding today. Hues of aqua, pink and red all blend together for a stunning event on a perfect day for Anthony and Laura.

We did sneak in an affiliate link or two for fun finds! 

A Pink and Aqua Roanoke Virginia Wedding as seen on Hill City Bride Blog and Magazine

Anthony and Laura met and fell in love over their mutual love and devotion to their undergrad university: Virginia Tech. As “Hokie Ambassadors” their job was to meet and greet prospective Hokies and share with them what being a “Hokie” is all about. They never expected to each find their soulmate. How fun!

Here’s what I adore about this Roanoke, Virginia wedding today.

  • The invitations are so lovely! It’s a gorgeous wedding suite. And Laura wove those tones all throughout her day. It was a perfect combination!
  • Anthony and Laura each had their own vow books in which to write their vows. What a fun idea! They not only make a great keepsake, but they also look lovely when you reading your vows. Take a peek at these vow books on Etsy.
  • Take note of the first look with the bridesmaids – their reactions in the mirror is so fun. What a creative image!
  • Laura’s shoes said “I Do” as she walked down the aisle, but only she would know. What fun stickers, and you can get your own here. And as she walked down the aisle Anthony teared up – so sweet!
  • Who doesn’t want to feel like a princess and twirl on her big day? I adore the many twirling photos, and Laura’s wedding gown was definitely something to twirl about.
  • Details such as cute place cards, Mr. and Mrs. forks (see here) and sharing a donut (super cute!) all add elements of fun to their reception.
  • Last, but not least, this Roanoke, Virginia wedding ended with a paper airplane sendoff. Adorable!

Enjoy your peek into Anthony and Laura’s wedding!
