Wedding on the Rooftop of The Penthouse - Roanoke, Virginia - Lauren & Jacob

Lauren & Jacob’s wedding was one of the most fun weddings I shot. They were both so laid back and easy to work with and as you can see from the images they had a blast!

Starting with their special dance walking down the aisle, to their toasts and sparkler exit, you can tell that it was a happy and fun day! And their sweet dog Alice was part of it too!

I asked them what was their favorite part from the day,

Romantic Wedding at West Manor Estate - Virginia Wedding Photographer - Erin & Devon

Romantic Wedding at West Manor Estate - Virginia Wedding Photographer - Erin & Devon

I first met Erin in 2010, when she became my next door neighbor. I had just had my son and that was the same year I started photography professionally. Soon enough, Erin and her twin sister, became my models. Being there to photograph Erin & Devon’s wedding was a lot more than just being their wedding photographer, I was a family member.

Their wedding was supposed to take place in 2018, but unfortunately a very terrible accident happened in their family so they had to postpone. It made their relationship stronger and make them aware of how fragile life can be, making them enjoy every moment with their loved ones even more.

Their day went by so beautifully, full of emotions, at West Manor Estate. The groomsmen all elegant and tight in their tuxedos and the bridesmaids gorgeous in their mismatched silver sage, dusty blue and burgundy dresses. The cake was a cappuccino flavor, Devon’s favorite flavor!

Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement - Roanoke, Virginia - Andrea & Tyler

Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement - Roanoke, Virginia - Andrea & Tyler

The first time I met Andrea, she was the bridesmaid AND wedding planner at one of my previous weddings. When she contacted me about being her wedding photographer, she still didn’t have a date set and I got worried I wasn’t going to be able to photograph it, since I already had a good number of dates booked. Andrea, on the other side wasn’t worried at all. She said “no worries, we’ll book a date that you still have available!” and so she did…

What is your favorite thing to do together?: 
“We love to cook together when we can! Whether it's a meal completely from scratch or a Blue Apron meal (that Tyler always makes fun of Andrea for ordering); it's always fun to get in the kitchen, drink some wine and make a meal together”.

We also enjoy going out to a sports bar, hanging out and watching football when we are able. It's nice to sit back and relax on a Sunday after a busy weekend in the hospitality world.
