Wow what a wild and wonderful wedding day for Jad & Julia at Fairview Farm! From the beginning it was magical with their snowy engagement session at the Virginia State Capitol and their wedding day was every bit as magical as their engagement session… minus the snow!

Julia and Jad carefully planned a wedding full of lovely blue, greenery and ivory shades and all the fun surprises for their reception.

I mean, they entered into their reception with Arabic drummers and fog, leading to an epic dance party to kick off the reception! The drummers were high energy and fun to watch which matched the vibe of Julia and Jad’s exciting reception! This is easily one of the most fun receptions I’ve ever been to and I just wanted to dance along with everyone too.

Julia was a stunningly beautiful bride in her sleek & effortlessly classic and modern wedding dress while Jad was channeling his inner James Bond in a navy blue tux. I couldn’t have had more fun at this day if I tried.

Lots of fun memories made that night at Fairview Farms in Powhatan VA and I’m so thrilled I was there to capture it!

The carefully picked details from the diamond necklace that was made from the stone from Julia’s grandmother’s ring. A piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress from 1963 wrapped around the bottom of her bouquet. The fun mashups during their parent dances and how incredibly fun the dance floor was with the drummer and Dabke dancer! And most importantly, just seeing the love between these two.

Julia and Jad shared an intimate first look together and Jad couldn’t help but cry seeing his beautiful bride. They read private vows to each other and soaked in the moment before getting ready to walk down the aisle to get married. And honestly the way Jad looks at Julia is enough to make your heart melt (please scroll down to find the sweetest photo of this during the speeches at reception )

Such a good time with wonderful people and I’m excited to get to share some of my favorites from Jad and Julia’s incredible Fairview Farm wedding day!
