If I could photograph Alex and Andrew’s wedding all over again and again and again, I 100% would! Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful from start to finish. When Alex told me that they were getting married at her family’s farm in Hume, Virginia, I wasn’t sure what I was expecting but definitely not the breathtakingly beautiful property her family hosted the wedding on! Rolling hills, horses in the pasture, the most beautiful house overlooking a pond and the ceremony overlooking that same pond, the reception tent in a field with a stunning sunset behind it… PLUS all the little details put into everything really elevated their wedding day and only added something special to an already gorgeous day. I was in HEAVEN.

Their wedding was rustic meets classic meets Kate Spade. Literally everywhere I looked, there was another gorgeous thing to photograph and not to mention the most adorable couple with a fun bridal party!

Alex and Andrew had been together for 9 years by the time they got married so their love was so natural and comfortable and you could tell by the way they looked at each other how deeply they care and love for each other.

The day had perfect weather, thanks to the bourbon they had buried close to the ceremony site just a month prior! And fun story: after the ceremony and family portraits, when we went to dig it up, we couldn’t find it! Thankfully after a few more minutes of digging around the area, the bourbon was found and celebratory sips were taken.

There were so many fun details that I loved about their reception: the bourbon and cigar bar, their signature drinks, the rustic styled chairs and tables with romantic candlelight and greenery decor on the tables, fun favors for the guests to take home and the incredible band that played that night! There were so many more but I’d be talking all day and night about how much I LOVED their wedding day!

So instead of going on and on and on, here are my absolute favorites from their wedding day! And let’s be honest: I just couldn’t narrow it down! Enjoy the highlights from Alex and Andrew’s romantic fall wedding at Newhaven Farm!

What a gorgeous wedding! I was so honored to be a part of Alex and Andrew’s special day and I know I’ll be reliving this over and over through all their photos!
