Virginia Outdoor Bridal Session as seen on Hill City Bride Wedding Blog

Rixey Manor near Culpepper, Virginia is the perfect place for an outdoor bridal session as you will see with Tamara’s images. Gorgeous! This also happens to be where Tamara and her fiance Ed will be saying “I Do” – so it’s appropriate for several reasons!

So how did their love story begin ? Tamara and Ed met online and after emailing for some time, arranged to meet at a restaurant in Shirlington, Samuel Beckett’s. Tamara had to rent a car to go meet him because her car broke down the day before. The rental turned out to be a big minivan! They connected immediately and though he said he wasn’t really looking for anything serious when he first met Tamara, within a month they were committed and seriously dating. Dates included wineries, hockey games, hiking, comedy shows at the Kennedy Center and making dinner together and watching movies.
On their one year anniversary, Ed picked Tamara up in a minivan, the same model of minivan she had rented (which they laughed over that night), a dozen roses, and stuffed fox (another inside joke). He took her to Samuel Beckett’s to celebrate. She wasn’t expecting him to propose, but when dessert arrived she was surprised with a cake (chocolate with butter creme frosting…her favorite). Written on the cake were the words, “Marry me?” alongside a stunning ring. She said yes!
What a fun story! Enjoy this lovely outdoor bridal session today – be sure to notice her lovely florals and her square engagement ring. Beautiful!

It’s always fun when a couple chooses their alma mater to say their “I do’s” as you will see in this spring William and Mary wedding. Alex and Kelly are super cute and so in love! Here are some of our favorite elements of their day.

  • The hints of Disney are so fun! Besides having a love for all things Disney, that is actually where Alex proposed – in front of the Cinderella castle in a boat during the fireworks show. Romantic? Yes!
  • Their wedding invitation was so classic – gold and easily readable. It’s lovely!
  • Ok, since this wedding was in an election year, I absolutely adore their wedding hashtag and their play on words. They used #nortonformayer2016 and had hints of red, white and blue throughout their day. What a fun couple! Peruse their wedding day hashtag images here.
  • Kelly was styled so beautifully. Her timeless look is one she won’t regret! With soft wedding makeup and a beautiful, classic gown, she makes such a stunning bride – lucky Alex!
  • I just love a good church wedding, and this wedding chapel is oh so gorgeous. Breathtaking! Of course the scenery around William and Mary makes for the perfect wedding photos of the couple.
  • And just wait until the end – I’ll admit that their first dance photo got me. So much emotion. It’s beautiful and sentimental.

I hope you enjoy this wedding today – look for the elements of fun. Enjoy!
