Family portrait! Did we mention yet what a beautiful bride Alisa is? No? Well, I guess that’s because we think it’s pretty obvious!
The hora! Hold on to your seats!
Congratulations again, you two! Oh, and stayed tuned for Part 3 – the Snap Happy photo booth pics!
We’ve got a fantastically emotional wedding for you today, happy people! We hope you enjoy Alisa & Brian’s celebration, presented in two parts. Once you see the images below, click here to see part 2.

We love this series Anne captured of Alisa’s dad seeing her for the first time!
Their first sight at the Blue Ridge Overlook. Can’t think of a more picturesque spot.
Alisa created these charms individually for each of her bridesmaids.
Alisa & Brian see their chuppah for the very first time.
Ellie the Ring Dog gets into the spirit of Halloween before donning her ceremony attire. Since she helped Brian propose, it was only fitting that she proceed Alisa down the aisle!
Signing their ketubah…
This is Bill’s favorite, favorite, favorite shot that Anne took. Gorgeous. Brings tears to both our eyes.
Anne’s favorite shot that Bill got that day…
Moon over Veritas!
Our talented assistant Karen shot this scene setter from among the vines just after the sun set. What gorgeous light! It filled everything with this beautiful hue.
It was pretty clear from the day we all met out at Veritas, sharing wine and getting to know one another, that we were going to have a fantastic time with you at your wedding. Alisa, the reaction you had when opening Brian’s Declaration of Love was beautiful (and Brian–bravo on the creative use of our nation’s founding document). When you saw each other that day for the first time atop the Blue Ridge Overlook at Wintergreen mountain, we too needed to wipe away some happy tears.
Your parents really went all out when it came to the surprises that day. Not only did we get to watch you get choked up again when you saw the custom-artwork created for your chuppah, showing your family tree with the two main branches coming together spread throughout. But we also got to laugh with you when you excitedly departed from your reception to hundreds of sparklers only to find a convertible Cadillac with its top down, waiting for you to hop in and ride away as husband and wife. Oh, and we can’t forget the light that blessed you that day! From your beautifully sunlit ketubah signing to your colorful sunset–we’d hardly ever seen such beautiful and vibrant colors at a wedding there at the winery. It seemed like the moment the sun dropped for the evening behind Afton Mountain there was this orange-pinkish-purplish glow that enveloped everything and everyone in pure and utter delight. It was stunning and totally set the stage for the rest of your celebration that evening. We loved the touching toast from your dad, Alisa and the song written expressly for your dog Ellie. Hilarious!
There’s love, and then there’s love. That you both embody the latter was abundantly clear to anyone near the two of you that day. Thank you so much for the honor of documenting your wedding! We had an absolute blast and we hope you enjoy reliving the day through the photos. (Shhh….don’t tell anyone, but they’re some of our favorite moments from this year!)
…the other a&b
Happy Monday, everyone, and welcome back. We trust you’re not all too stuffed from turkey and all the trimmings and you’re making a dent in the left0vers. Friends who went out for dinner that day seem to be on to something.
Anyway, we’re so happy to see Sarah & Ori’s wedding featured on the Charlottesville Weddings blog today! Thanks to Danielle for highlighting this fun and eclectic couple along with the incredibly creative details from Jennifer Carroll Designs. Go check it out.
Fall colors may have largely subsided, but enough of the vibrantly-colored leaves hung on just long enough for Liz and Scott to travel back to Virginia, where they met while in grad school at Darden, for their engagement session. It made sense to do a few portraits on Grounds at UVa, of course, but we wanted to have a little more fun too and suggested we head downtown to do some things they liked doing when they lived in Charlottesville. Cue up the gelato and wine (not necessarily in that order)! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait for your wedding next year, Liz & Scott! Go here to see the entire portrait session.
Such a beautiful couple!
Gotta love a little Splendora’s action…
But Enoteca is no slouch either!
Happy Holidays, you two and we’ll see you again soon!!
