Your grand entrance awaits – and all eyes will be on you on your wedding day. I (long ago!) actually used the classic Canon in D by Pachelbel, but why not use something fresh and modern? Several of these songs for walking down the aisle brought tears to my eyes just thinking about a bride walking to them – love is such a beautiful thing! Share in the festivities and pick something that is meaningful for your big day’s processional. Enjoy!

When it comes to your e-session, having one as the sun goes down provides the opportunity for such gorgeous light as you will see with Ross and Morgan’s sunset engagement session. Also, this couple adores parks – they are saying “I do” at Pine Mountain State Park, and their Virginia e-session took place at Natural Tunnel State Park. I hope you enjoy their lovely session today with Edwards Photography. Gorgeous! Virginia Sunset Engagement Session at Natural Tunnel State Park as seen on Hill City Bride Wedding Blog E-session

Here are some things I love about their Virginia sunset engagement session.


When it comes to honeymoon travel, many brides and grooms come home with a collection of things to save – ticket stubs, postcards, brochures, maps and more. Why not curate something fun to collect and house all of those honeymoon mementos along with jotting down your thoughts and memories? This beautiful DIY honeymoon travel journal is just the thing!

  • Ashley Triggiano - I LOVE this idea. I have a sketchbook specifically for watercolors, and I tend to add watercolor to my bullet journal, but I’d really love to dedicate one to quick captures of our travels while we’re out! Thanks for sharing!

  • Jennifer - Thank you, Ashley! It really was a journey for me, and I have fallen in love with watercolors now. I appreciate you stopping by!

I don’t normally feature sessions that aren’t based in Virginia, but I just couldn’t resist this Moroccan engagement session! After all, I know Spencer, and we are featuring her Lynchburg bridal shower (oh so beautiful!) soon. But first, I wanted you to see her stunning engagement photos in Marrakesh. It was always her dream to do a session with a camel in the Moroccan desert, and she and her fiance Brennan made that dream come true. I mean really could it get any better?

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.

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!

For some reason, a vintage bridal tea just feels special – dressing up, having tea and using antique china all add to the feel and the ambience of the event. Why not consider throwing a tea in lieu of a bridal shower? Once you see our ideas from Beau Coup, you will see what we mean!

Just like at tea, everything is proper around here! We’ll divulge that affiliate links are contained below.
