Tess + Garrett A CrossKey Vineyards Wedding | Mount Crawford, VA


When I arrived on Tess + Garrett’s big day, there was nothing but joy surrounding the entire venue. I walked into the reception space to be greeted by Tess’s adorable bridesmaids in their gorgeous robes + their sweet welcome immediately made this day wonderful! Tess + Garrett celebrated their wedding at the STUNNING CrossKey Vineyards tucked away in the mountains + they couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather!

Tess + Garrett are the type of people that never stop smiling. Even during the stressful parts of the morning, you NEVER saw either of them without a smile on their face! They are just the sweetest couple and I was so honored to be a part of their big day. There are tons of sparkly details, gorgeous florals + beautiful portraits in this blog post…AH! I just love it!

Congratulations, Tess + Garrett! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these moments for you!


And a huge thank you to all of these amazing vendors for making this day happen!
