Alex & Brittany were married last weekend and their wedding at Longwood University in Farmville was so beautiful!

I’m a huge fan of small, intimate weddings. They are so personal, and even though I never could have had a small wedding (as in, I have a huge family!) I thoroughly enjoy photographing them! Alex & Brittany’s bridal party was made up of Brittany’s sister Kristen and Alex’s brother Michael, and they’re guests were all family!

Most of my weddings are at least an hour away so shooting local weddings is such a treat for me! When Brittany first booked and told me they wanted to have their wedding at Longwood University and that they would be getting ready at The Weyanoke right across the street I was SO excited! I’ve shot at the Longwood so many times (Alex & Brittany had their engagement session there!) and it’s always beautiful. And the Weyanoke is such a classy hotel; if you’re local and you haven’t had a chance to check out this place you need to!

It was drizzling all morning but Alex & Brittany kept with their plan of having their ceremony out on the lawn at Longwood. I’m so glad they did! Rain or no rain, Brittany’s smile as she walked towards her groom was radiant! The rain stopped right after the ceremony and we had some stunning light for portraits as we walked around campus.

I just have to add something; this is the kind of person Brittany is. The day of the wedding I brought 2 clear umbrellas, like I normally do on rainy wedding days. One of them didn’t open for some reason, which wasn’t a big deal because we had extra. But the very next day I got an Amazon package in the mail. In it were TWO clear umbrellas, and a sweet note from Brittany, making sure that I had more umbrellas in case I needed them for my next wedding. Isn’t that SO SWEET??

Enjoy the highlights from Alex & Brittany’s wedding at Longwood University and the Weyanoke!

Congratulations Alex & Brittany!
I’m soo glad I got to share these memories with you! Marriage is such an amazing gift and I’m excited as you begin your life together as husband and wife.

xoxo!
