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!

Waterside Wedding as seen on Hill City Bride

I just can’t get enough of lovely brides and grooms enjoying beautiful ocean (and lake) side venues for their big day, hence showcasing another lovely Virginia Beach waterside wedding with a stunning bride and groom! Oliver and Jessica’s soft, citrusy palette – think pink grapefruit – added splashes of luxurious color to their wedding day, which also happened to be overcast. It didn’t dampen their spirits as you will see here.

Take a moment to notice the ADORABLE flower girl and ring bearer (his eyes!) and the weaving on the back of the bride and groom’s reception chairs – so simple, yet it has a high impact. Love is definitely in the air – and sea – in this gorgeous wedding today. Enjoy this bright, waterside wedding!

I don’t know about you, but I am loving these tidbits. When I think of John Lennon, I think about music, love and tragedy. Pictures of him and Yoko Ono flash through my mind – even though I was too young to really remember much about him. I hope you enjoy this John Lennon quote today!
