Rustic Summer Wedding at Glasgow Farm Madi and Keegan | Fredericksburg, Virginia


Madi and Keegan kicked off my busy fall wedding season and it was the PERFECT way to begin!!! Madi is seriously just the sweetest bride. We hit it off from the very beginning at their engagement session and anytime we ran into each other in between we got to chat like old friends!! She is a wedding planner herself, so I knew every detail was going to be SO well thought out! Keegan is her perfect other half, and I went into the wedding day knowing it would be laid back and so much fun to photograph.

When we arrived at Glasgow Farm, it was pretty toasty outside! So much for the kickstart of FALL season!! Haha! But, NOBODY let it phase them!!! Even the bridesmaids were dripping sweat at some points of the day but everyone was just full of so much JOY that Madi and Keegan were committing their lives to each other! One of my favorite parts of the day (and this venue!) is the adorable little goats that walk around freely…and occasionally eat the reception decor. Hahaha!

Madi and Keegan, thank you for being such a JOY to work with. Thank you for choosing me to photograph your beautiful wedding day. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!!!
