Bull Run Winery Virginia wedding was rainy on the last Saturday in March. Despite the rain, Kara and Brian were ready to be married and the rain wasn’t going to dampen anyone’s spirits on that day. A huge thanks to Lauren Swann for photographing with me in the rain, and capturing all the details, and amazing couple that Kara and Brian are with me.
I met Kara back in the fall at a coffee shop after I was introduced to her through Dan’s cousin. Kara and I chatted for an hour about their wedding day, the gorgeous details, and the gorgeous winery. Dreaming of a sun shiny day in the vineyards. Brian is in the military and was in training in Florida at the time, but Kara and I couldn’t stop talking about their wedding day and our beloved animals.
The day of their wedding was anything but sun shiny, but the smiles on their faces, brought the sun to the party. No rain was going to damper this day for them. They were wonderful, we traipsed through the rain for outdoor photos, and laughed and smiled as puddles were forming and the rain was dripping on my head to get the best photos ever! Their day couldn’t have been any better, and I am so thankful to have captured their wedding day for them! Kara and Brian I hope you had a fantastic honeymoon in St. Lucia, welcome back to the rain.
Kara you are absolutely stunning!
I love when the father sees his daughter for the first time on her wedding day, it is such a special moment.
MARRIED! Thank you to the tents for allowing Kara and Brian to still have a faux outdoor wedding in the rain.
I love their oh my gosh we are finally married faces! LOVE!!!
I had to throw this amazing-ness in when Kara for the first time spelled out O-H-I-O with Brian’s family! The bouquet worked great as the “I”
Again, Kara you rocked every one of your photos!
Love this amazing gift from Kara to Brian, a pocket watch with their wedding date, his initials, and a sweet photo of his mom for him to remember forever.
Kara and Brian, you were so much fun to photograph! You pretended I wasn’t even there and had amazing moments like the bottom left to yourselves with my camera close by! Love that I captured some of these wonderful moments!
I had to throw this in, it was a quick photo while Lauren or I were explaining something and it reminded us all of the American Gothic photo!
Your details in the centerpieces, table numbers, card box, advice box, and the list goes on were amazing, rustic, and fabulous to photograph!
time to party eat cake and enjoy the night!
