Stephanie and Troy’s Fall Wedding at Alturia Farm – Manquin, Virginia

In honor of this lovely couple’s one year anniversary having just passed, I think it’s time for a visit to the archives for a 2018 wedding that I’m so excited to share with you all for the first time!!!

It’s no surprise that Alturia Farm is one of my favorite venues. The owners and all the staff are just the kindest, most loving people! Vendor or client, they will make you feel welcome from the moment you meet!

Not to mention- who wouldn’t fall in love at first sight of such a gorgeous venue?! I had been following them on Instagram for a few months after finding their page earlier in the year and so hoping to have the opportunity to shoot there soon.

Well, next thing you know, here comes Stephanie’s bubbly inquiry popping into my inbox!! I adored her from our very first email conversations. The sweetest couple and a dream venue- yes please, count me in!!!

I spent the next few months getting to know Stephanie and Troy better and when I arrived that day to photograph their wedding, I so seriously felt like I was showing up for two great friends. Everything about Stephanie and Troy as individuals and as a couple is kind and inviting. You can feel their warmth the moment you interact with them and to be there to capture their wedding day felt like the truest honor!!

These two share such a strong, yet gentle kind of love. One that burns like a fire when they look at each other, but also brings along such soft ease when they are in each others arms. It was such a beautiful celebration to witness as they became husband and wife with their closest friends and family’s support surrounding them. All of my (many, many) favorite images from their wedding are below!!

Stephanie and Troy – Couples like you two are what makes me love my job even more. To find a friendship in two people that would have otherwise been strangers is just the sweetest gift for me. You both have such big hearts and I feel lucky to have been there to document your wedding day! I hope your anniversary was the best day and I hope you have fun reliving the beginning of your marriage through these images whenever you look at them!
