Today I’m sharing a special wedding that took place in Virginia’s countryside. Like so many other couples this year, Kelsey and Federico made the difficult decision to move their big celebration to 2021. However, they also wanted to start married life together. So they planned an intimate celebration on their original date.
They opted to have their ceremony in the same location: the beautiful Whitehall Estate in Bluemont. After exchanging vows under the century-old trees on the property (alongside a live video stream for guests who couldn’t be there), they snuck away for a few newlywed portraits. Let me tell you – Virginia’s fall season is really starting to show off! The leaves were absolutely perfect, accompanied by crisp autumn air. The evening was filled with so much joy!
Afterwards, Kelsey and Federico joined their guests for a cozy dinner at Stone Tower Winery. Of course, we couldn’t resist taking a few portraits among the vines at sunset.
Congratulations, Kelsey and Federico! I was honored to be part of your celebration, and I can’t wait for the big one next fall. Enjoy a few sneak peeks below!
