A couple of weeks ago now, I had the honor of photographing Valyn & Robert’s wedding. I didn’t get the chance to meet these two until a few months prior to their wedding due to crazy schedules, and the fact that one of Valyn’s talented friends, who is also a photographer, took their engagement photos for them. When I did finally get to meet them, I felt like everything just clicked, and I knew that I would love their wedding. Valyn’s parents live on a beautiful piece of property in Gordonsville, TN, which served as the venue for both the ceremony and the reception! They did a FABULOUS job putting everything together and it was absolutely gorgeous! We worried about rain all day, and had some showers during the reception, and thanks to their back-up plan, they’d moved the reception indoors and nothing was interrupted in the least! If you are looking for a beautiful piece of farm land to host your wedding, be sure to let me know and I can put you in touch with these fine folks who can tell you more about Outback Farm!
Now on to these two…What can I say?!! They are absolutely perfect for one another! As I mentioned, my time with them before the wedding was short and sweet, but just 2 minutes in their presence and you can feel their love for one another. I’m so not exaggerating!! Their first look might be one of my all time favorites. Robert could not get over how amazing Valyn looked, and just went on and on about it. I loved every minute of it. The ceremony was perfect, and afterward as I photographed them from afar, I almost teared up at the emotion they had in that moment. I’ve said it once already, but I love the way they love one another – out loud, on purpose, and they’re not afraid to show it!! Simply amazing! On top of being completely smitten with one another, they also know just how to work the camera! They are such naturals that if I just put them near each other, they’d find a comfortable pose and look great doing it! Talk about a dream couple! I loved being a part of your wedding day, and I hope you love this preview of your photos!!
