Morais Vineyard Wedding | VA & Destination Photographer
Although I live in VA, sometimes, when I go to a venue, I feel like I’m in a destination. That’s how I felt when I photographed Lauren and Drew’s wedding at Morais Vineyards. The beautiful architectural design is straight out of Portugal and I felt like I was right in their country. It was a beautiful venue selection for their wedding and they couldn’t have picked a better place. With me now being a destination photographer, hopefully I will be able to visit the country and photograph a wedding there!
On their wedding day, it was beautifully sunny and great temps but there was a chance for rain. It came but thankfully, it kept stopping. We started inside for the bridal portraits because it was raining but the venues suite was gorgeous inside so I was really excited to use the space! Then it stopped and we headed outside for the rest of the portraits as well as Lauren’s first look with her dad which was so precious! The had setup the ceremony space inside in case and thankfully they did because it poured during the ceremony and even after for a bit but then stopped again (yay!) just in time for the full bridal party portraits and then just the two of them.
Lauren and Drew are such an awesome and adorable couple. Last year Lauren gave birth to their precious daughter, Ellie, who rode down the isle in her very own wagon! I just about died seeing her precious little face riding in that wagon to watch her mom and dad get married! Their wedding was not only beautiful from the florals to the cake, but it was incredibly fun and laid back. Lauren looked like a goddess with her gold crown and flowing florals that looked like she was right out of a movie. Drew was by her side all night being the gentleman he is and totally in love with her beauty.
Lauren and Drew, I absolutely loved getting to know you guys and I’m so glad to have been part of your wedding which was such an honor! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and love!!
