Veritas Vineyard Wedding Photographer – Congratulations Kaye and Andrew!

Kaye and Andrew’s wedding was on a warm, early fall day at the lovely Veritas Vineyard near Charlottesville, VA.  Towards the end of the reception, it made me so happy to hear them both reflect that the day was perfect – just like a sign they had welcoming guests that proclaimed it to be the “Best Day Ever”.   It was such an honor and a joy to work with them and their families, and to photograph so many sweet moments and memories on their wedding day. Congratulations Kaye and Andrew!

A first look with Dad (above) was super sweet!  Then the reveal to Andrew (below) was also a tad emotional.  I love when a couple and the families are fully present in the moment, emotions and all.  I hope this photo will help them experience again exactly how they were feeling as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.  

The beautiful mountain views at Veritas Vineyard create a majestic backdrop for the first kiss as a married couple!

This father/daughter dance had all the guests in tears, what a beautiful moment!
