Kevin & Kirsten said I do in Downtown Farmville Virginia in June, and I loved being a part of it!

I typically travel to the Richmond or Charlottesville area to photograph weddings, so I absolutely love when I book one that is just minutes from my house! Kevin & Kirsten’s wedding was so unique and beautiful. The Groom and Groomsmen sported top hats and canes, and we shot photos with an Antique Ford Car! The humid Virginia weather didn’t keep anyone from having  a good time, with brunch after the ceremony held at the LCVA (Longwood Visual Arts Center) in Farmville. Kevin and Kirsten’s commitment to each other and to serving the people in the community is a beautiful thing. Kirsten’s job as a surgeon at the Farmville hospital is demanding but she loves it, and was sweet at the reception to hear the kind words spoken by her colleagues about her work.

Kirsten and her girls got ready at the Inn of Barrow Street-a cute Bed and Breakfast in Farmville. I loved Kirsten’s details; the soft pink roses in her bouquet, her gold jewelry, and simple classic wedding dress. Bride and Bridesmaids stood on the big front porch for photos, before heading over to the church for the ceremony. I’ve always thought that Kirsten looks like Princess Diana in these photos, do you agree?!

Kevin & Kirsten said their vows at their home church, a beautiful old building a few minutes from their home.

They have beautiful gardens & woods surrounding their home and I loved the pretty light that came through the trees!  And check out the old car! The black and white photo of Kevin helping his Bride into the car was captured by my talented second shooter Jordan, and is one of my favorite photos of the day.Bride-And-Groom-Portrait-Wedding-Venue-Near-Ricmond-Virginia Bride-Groom-Portrait-Backyard-Wedding-Richmond-Virginia Bride-Groom-Portrait-Backyard-wedding-richmond-virginia Bride-groom-portriats-virginia-wedding-photographer-in-richmond wedding-photographer-in-richmond-virginia Backyard-wedding-groms-portraits-virginia-wedding-photographer bride-groom-portraits-with-classic-car-richmond-va-rentals bride-groom-portrait-rose-florals Old-ford-classic-car-virginia-wedding-photographer-richmond-bakcyard-wedding Black-and-white-bride-groom-portrait-near-richmond-virginai Bride-Groom-Portrait-with-Classic-Car-Richmond-Wedding-Photographer
