Plum Wedding Shoot as seen on Hill City Bride

Couples in love often comment on how well they go together – like cream and sugar or salt and pepper. Taking a cue from these fun analogies, Amy Ellis decided to do a fun style shoot based on going together like peanut butter and jelly. It turned out to be so lovely!

Hues of plum, gold and tan intertwine to create a Virginia scene that is both royal and relatable, and real life couple Brett and Julie add so much with their love. I think it’s a great idea to use actual couples for a shoot – they are already comfortable with each other, which makes for a special element in the images.

Also, take note of the faux gold glasses. Just pick up thrifted glasses and paint the bottoms yourself – so cute. Ok, go grab a glass of milk and enjoy this PB&J inspiration today – the hair, shoes and jewelry are fab!

Virginia Plantation Wedding as seen on Hill City Bride

I adore a soft color palette! With hues of pink and bridesmaids in a lovely shade of mint, this classic plantation wedding has so many details. And the location – Hewick Plantation – is completely stunning! Including a manor home and a lush landscape, this Virginia wedding venue is the perfect place to say your nuptials.

Be sure to take note of the ring bearer’s adorable sign and the post ceremony bubbles. How fun for their guests to be able to spread joy in the air after Rob and Sami were pronounced husband and wife. And that antique car… so lovely! I encourage you to carefully look at all of their fun details in this beautiful event today as it truly was their “best day ever” (cue cute cake topper!).

Virginia Hay Field Engagement as seen on Hill City Bride

Whew! After a long week, I’m ready to get casual and throw on some jeans and a comfy shirt for the weekend (and honestly, I can’t wait until “just throw on a cute dress season”, but that will obviously have to wait a while). Today’s engagement actually takes place at the groom-to-be’s Virginia farm, which is also the location where this couple will be saying their “I Do’s” soon. So fun! The farm makes a perfect backdrop for this adorable couple’s session by Natural Bliss Photography. And I also have to say that I love the shot of her ring on the barbed wire… it’s the perfect mix of rustic and glamorous. So, get ready for a stroll through the farm with this hay field e-session today. Enjoy!

Trump Winery Wedding as seen on Hill City Bride

Sometimes I feel as though Central Virginia is like Napa Valley or even Tuscany – not that I’ve ever been to either place (I’d love to roam Italy!), but the area has so many wineries! Lush landscapes of lovely rows of grapes coupled with views and scenery like no other. Truly, search “winery weddings” on our site, and you will see what I mean!

I know that Donald Trump is quite controversial at the moment, and I have no interest in talking politics. But, what I think what we can all agree on is that Trump Winery near Charlottesville is quite stunning! And the touches that Eric and Bernadette had at their wedding complemented the landscape perfectly. Soft, lavender pastels were combined with pops of plum to create a classically gorgeous events on the Virginia hillside. Enjoy this lovely, Trump Winery wedding today!

Downtown Lynchburg E-session as seen on Hill City BrideDowntown Lynchburg, Virginia is so beautiful and is full of nooks and crannies for an engagement session. From old buildings to a lovely, stony, nature trail, there really is a huge variety of backgrounds all within walking distance. April from April B Photography did a fabulous job showcasing Ben and Grace’s love story all throughout the area. So fun!

And this couple is just as cute as can be. I adore their laughs and smiles! In April’s words, “I love how natural and fun these two are together, and I think the beauty of downtown Lynchburg shines along with their love for one another.” I wholeheartedly agree. Enjoy this loving, Lynchburg e-session today!
