Homewood Wedding: Alexandria + James
Early last year we met with one of the sweetest couples ever, James & Alex! As we sat at Starbucks getting to know these two over coffee, I think at one point about half way through our initial meet up, we noticed to ourselves that we were sharing more laughs than wedding details and ideas (lol). Ultimately this theme would be the spirit of our journey with James & Alex as every time we came together, these lovebirds would always keep it lighthearted & fun and when you’re around amazing people like this, it tends to rub off on you!
Our first time working with them was for their engagement session at Graveyards Fields, just off The Blue Ridge Parkway, about 45 minutes outside of town. It is by far one of our favorite local spots to shoot, hang, and bring visitors from out of town to show them a scenic piece of our home. As previously mentioned, James & Alex couldn’t help but bring a smile to your face as they put their love on display for the camera! At one point during this fun shoot, I must have lost a little bit of focus while focusing on these two, or as we sometimes call it living vicariously through our lens because I was stepping across the the shallow part of the stream at the top of the waterfall when suddenly it was like a rug was pulled from underneath me and I ended up on my back in the cold water. At that time everyone appeared concerned, but I’m hoping in the end I was able to return the favor and give them a little laugh too :)
When their wedding day finally arrived, these beautiful souls picked up right where they left off! They chose to have a more intimate style wedding with their closest loved ones at one of our favorite venues, Homewood!
At the end of of it all there was so much back to look back on and cherish. From fun with family and friends, to happy tears from James as Alex made her way down the aisle, to a poetically put together speech from her maid of honor that was worthy of a mic drop, their wedding day left with you with that feeling that truly made your heart smile! We started this blog off talking about how sweet these two were and now as we come to a close and we’ve reflected on all of the little moments along the way we’ve shared, it was never more apparent! Congrats to James and Alex and as always, thank you all for following along!
Special thanks to the amazing wedding vendors who helped bring this day together!
