Hill City Bride | Lynchburg Wedding Bridal Blog » A Lynchburg, VA Wedding and Bridal Blog...

When I saw this wedding, one word came to mind… wow! The colors, the beauty (I mean, really, Shereen is an absolutely stunning bride!) and the traditions are so spectacular. And (get this!) the bride had four (yes 4!) dress changes. Can you tell that I am just a little bit excited to share this with you? What a beautiful, unique, memorable event this couple had!

This wedding was photographed by Caroline Lessard Photographe, and here is what Caroline had to say about the day…

This happy traditional, Moroccan wedding took place in Laval, Quebec {at the Banquet la Sirene}. It was my first Moroccan wedding, so believe me when I say they literally swept me of my feet! Shereen actually called me six days before the wedding, and I was oh so happy to be part of that day. As a photographer, it’s an honor and a serious blast to cover a different culture’s wedding.

I think that their special day was in an other way as special for me. I remember that at one point, as they were dancing up my head surrounded by gold attributes, I just stopped shooting for a second. I had to appreciate that moment of gratitude of me being a witness of this moment. A simple look at them and you know, they are just oh so perfect for each other. Oh and do I have to mention the four dresses? Who wouldn’t dream about that! I loved every details of this wedding, from the fabulous shoes (omg) to the fun that they all had dancing and partying. All the best to this sweet couple!

Ok, without further due, enjoy this stunning affair!

There is just something about the fall that excites me! I adore the crispness in the air, the slightly shorter days, the pumpkins and gourds, and even the corn mazes and hayrides. It is such a fun time of year, and it is also the perfect time for a rustic, autumn wedding as Jonathan and Morgan planned.

This wedding by Visions Photography has so many special elements in it. I adore the vintage car and the fact that Morgan had a brides-man (is that what you would call it?). The decor, signage and florals all lend themselves to a fun, rustic feel against the backdrop of the water. So beautiful!

If you love a barn wedding, then this one is idea filled just for you! It has such lovely detailing. I adore how the ceremony is set up outside of the barn in such a unique way. You will also notice fun ideas like succulent favors, fun signage and vintage hankies for tears at the wedding. I feel that this wedding is so beautiful yet also stylishly simple and elegant.

Here is what photographer Roman Grinev Photography had to say about Edward and Christina’s day…

Kristina and Ed were married on a gorgeous summer, Saturday afternoon at the equally beautiful Smokey Glenn Farm in Gaithersburg. The day started off at their home nearby where Christina and the bridesmaids were all getting ready. Christina opted for a very elegant, yet casual wedding gown, which completely matched her personal style that was evident throughout their home.

I met the guys at Smokey Glenn Farm just before the ceremony, and they were definitely in a very relaxed mood. The part of the farm where the ceremony and reception happened was amazing. Christina and the ladies arrived and it was straight away to the ceremony, which was held just beneath the barn which hosted the reception. All of the details of the ceremony were perfectly suited to the relaxed country feeling of their day.

After the ceremony, we took the bridal party for a quick walk to a few places around the property for some fun pictures. After the photos, we were off to the barn where everyone was waiting in anticipation for the newly wed couple…and the amazing bar-b-que dinner that was being prepared. The barn was decorated beautifully; it was certainly a perfect location for a farm wedding. Christina and Ed had a live band for entertainment and everyone enjoyed them. The reception was perfect for the tone they wanted; casual, relaxed, farm style with people hanging out, listening to the band, playing miniature golf, and eating home made pie for dessert.

Ok, on with this lovely wedding today. Enjoy!

  • Adam Mullins - Incredible shots. Did the bride get ready after she climbed? Pretty unique location for such a pretty dress :) love it.

The Bedford Columns in Bedford, VA is such a majestic looking manor home with a lovely outdoor setting for a ceremony plus a lovely ballroom. The venue itself is very adaptable to whatever theme you would like, and that is exactly what Katherine and Russ did. They chose fun, quirky elements such as a green, teeter totter wedding cake and firearms for their bridal party photos. And, you will see a little surprise picture in there with this quirky wedding, too!

This wedding was photographed by Evan Hampton Photography, and here is a little about Russ and Katherine and their day…

The wedding took place in Bedford, VA at The Bedford Columns. It was a balmy Virginia afternoon, but the wedding party made it fun. The bridal party wanted to each pose with a gun. This was the countryside of Virginia after all. And Katherine and Russ are big Star Wars fans and wanted a fun photograph to showcase it.

The wedding went well into the night with the arrival of a red supermoon. The happy couple was whisked away at the end of the night and directly off to Disney World for their honeymoon.
