For Brides

When I sat down in the first few days of January, planning out my year, I never would’ve thought this year would’ve gone the way it has. Despite the chaos that 2020 has given us, Karlie and Tanner were able to have their wedding day at the Floyd Event Center in Floyd, Virginia. There were so many things that could’ve put a damper on their day (COVID, my fears that Virginia would go back to Phase 2, guest restrictions, a torrential downpour, road closures on the way to the wedding…) but NONE of it could’ve stopped the pure joy of the day.

Karlie and Tanner were high school sweethearts and had been together for 7 years when Tanner proposed to her in the most romantic way (think candlelight, rose petals and a Valentine’s Day photo session!) I loved getting to know them during their engagement session with me last spring and I was so excited to kick off my 2020 wedding season with their wedding! Their venue was 4 hours away from my home and let me tell you, it was SO WORTH the drive x100!

Their wedding was a sweet and beautiful wedding with touches of dusty pink and blue. Karlie looked like a literal angel in her gorgeous dress: seriously, check out their sunset portraits! That golden light plus how beautiful she looked = LITERAL ANGEL.

I was so honored to be a part of their wedding day and I’m so excited to share my favorites from their amazing wedding day!
