February 1st is a big day for me. While I began walking through an unexpected phase of life prior to this exact date, today I specifically celebrate one year of overcoming being forced out of… More
I’m so excited to share this magical Christmas wedding in Colonial Williamsburg! Just a little backstory first- Cory and Alex ended up getting engaged then booking me for their wedding shortly after Cory’s sister’s wedding that I photographed last Spring. I was thrilled they asked me because I adored their family, I already knew Cory was going to be so much fun plus she and Alex were adorable together on the dancefloor! During their engagement session, they explained a little more about what their wedding was going to be like and I was so pumped, but WOAH, I didn’t expect such an incredible day!
I love that it was an early wedding day since it took place on December 21st when the sun sets around 5pm. The venue was absolutely beautiful, every little detail that went into the day was seriously impressive and I loved the pineapple theme mixed with all things Christmas. Cory and Alex shared the sweetest vows ever, every minute of the day was “merry and bright” ( see what I did there? 😉 ), they had so many fun surprises for guests that you’ll see throughout the pictures, and we even had time after the reception for tons of bride and groom portraits around Colonial Williamsburg- it was amazing. If you make it to the end you’ll get to see the magical twilight shots in front of the Inn and the reflection pool which was the perfect way to end a perfect day!
Wishing Mr. and Mrs. Proffitt a lifetime of giggles, silly dancing, and lots of blessings! 🙂 I’m so thankful I was a part of such a memorable day with two wonderful families to work with- congratulations, friends!

Kristin and Tyler celebrated their winter wedding at one of my favorite venues, Alturia Farms! Though the weather wasn’t exactly what we hoped for, we made the best of it anyways. They prepared by bringing clear umbrellas and we got to take some super quick shots in the rain! We couldn’t stay out there for too long since it was about 20 degrees, but we managed to get quite a few romantic portraits! Thankfully the first half of the day was clear enough for outdoors pictures and Kristin’s bridals are some of my favorites- she looked stunning. Tyler also had some fun before the ceremony with his groomsmen and a little bit of whiskey- I love those candids of them!
The details that went into this wedding were amazing between the party favors, the drink menus, and little special touches here and there, I loved it all! Everything was so well thought out and meaningful to the bride and groom. That’s what made this day so memorable! Not to mention, this crew definitely knew how to party and it was one heck of a reception! The family and friends that attended their wedding were SO excited to celebrate Kristin and Tyler that it showed how much everyone loves them and I of course saw why. I adore their sweet relationship, in the way Tyler holds her close, the sparkle in Kristin’s eyes when he looks at her, and how much FUN they have together… all of that shines through their photos, especially during the first dance/reception shots!
I’m thankful to have been a part of this beautiful day and can’t wait to see what these two amazing people accomplish as a forever team through their marriage. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Cox!
