WEDDINGS | Wade & Jessica a summer wedding at Longwood University

Every bride handles the events of their wedding day differently.  Jessica had a calm and confident air about her when we arrived.  The ladies gathered at the bride and groom's home in Farmville, Virginia.  Wade is a professor at nearby Longwood University and their reception would be held there later that day.  She was calm - enjoying her friends and family and the moments as they came. She was confident that no matter the circumstances of the day that ultimately, she was marrying the love of her life today!

Jessica and Wade joined their lives together and celebrated the evening away with their family and friends!  There was so much laughter and fun - they literally danced for hours at the reception.  It was another fantastic wedding for me as the third shooter for Jessica of  Jessica Mae Photography with the lovely Lauren of Lauren Kelley Photography as her second shooter that day.

WEDDINGS | Sean & Chelsey - a southern summer wedding in Virginia

We met Chelsey at a friend's home that looked like it fell out of Southern Living magazine.  It was the perfect backdrop for the preparations and some portraits!  It was over a hundred and humid that day, so Jessica posed most of the portraits indoors before we all headed to Midway Baptist Church for the remainder of the day. 

Their entire venue was cohesively decorated in varying shades of delicate pink.  The result was a classic and elegant feel and overflowing with southern charm and hospitality! Sean and Chelsey opted for a First Look before the ceremony, which I was excited about!  I had not yet been able to observe one so this was my first!  I also loved that Chelsey and Sean BUILT their own dance floor outside to enjoy their first dance as man and wife with a beautiful sunset as a backdrop!

I had the privilege of assisting Jessica Mae Photography on Sean and Chelsey's special day.   This is also when I got to meet Lauren Kelley, who was Jessica's second shooter on a number of occasions and photographer in her own right!  I would have gladly accompanied to observe and assist but Jessica allowed to me to shoot for my portfolio as well!  So here are some of my favorites from the day from my perspective!
