Old Metropolitan Hall Wedding | Tristan & Karen
I got to photograph a beautiful winter wedding at Old Metropolitan Hall in Downtown Charlottesville last weekend!
Tristan & Karen had a beautiful December day…..not too cold and full of sunshine! They met at Mudhouse Coffee, which was right down the street of the Downtown Mall, where Old Metropolitan Hall is located. When I first met Tristan & Karen at their engagement session this summer, we ended up just talking for 30 minutes after the session. They are hardworking and have big goals, care about others, and are the kind of people who become your friends within minutes of meeting them. Karen even gifted us with a small box of specialty chocolates the morning of the wedding! Karen’s calm, sweet personality compliments Tristan who is energetic and fun. They were such a dream to work with!
I enjoyed this wedding so much, and I hope you enjoy scrolling through my favorites from the day!
The colors Karen chose were just right for the season! Doesn’t she make a perfect winter bride?
The first look! Ahhh I love this so much!
We walked all around the Downtown Mall for portraits! I always love the chance to shoot at a new location.
Old Metropolitan Hall was so beautifully decorated! I loved the banners in the front window, and the simple white and green florals.
That “just married” feeling! Lots of sweet toasts for Tristan & Karen from their closest friends. And then dancing downstairs!
The most magical bubble exit!
Congratulations Tristan & Karen! Your day was so stunning and I loved being a part of it! Merry Christmas!
I loved working with each of these talented vendors!
