Rustic Fall Wedding at Faithbrooke Barn and Vineyards Savannah and Devin | Luray, VA


I was looking forward to Savannah and Devin’s wedding day for SO LONG! Their fall engagement session last year quickly became a favorite, AND they modeled for my most recent workshop in August! Needless to say, I just adore them both as humans AND as a couple…which meant their wedding couldn’t come soon enough!!! I traveled to Luray, VA from Charleston, SC…meaning I left 103 degree weather for low 60’s! The day of the wedding was a PERFECT fall afternoon…a little bit overcast with the perfect chilly temps (enough for a light sweater, but not enough to be unbearably cold). The venue was tucked away with the most gorgeous view of the mountains. It was seriously just dreamy!

My favorite part of Savannah and Devin’s day was how family-oriented the entire celebration was. Both of their families rallied together and took part in the set-up and tear down of the entire wedding. It was so relaxed and so wonderfully THEM. Everyone was just SO excited to be their celebrating their marriage! It was so special to watch. The love and the joy that was so present throughout the entire day made my job just THAT much easier on an already amazing day!

Savannah and Devin: I hope you enjoy some of my favorites! It was truly such an honor to be a part of this celebration and witness the love that you both have for each other. I had so many favorites it was hard to choose!!!

When your groom is a firefighter…the details have to include vintage firetrucks!!

These FLORALS!!! So fluffy!!!

Savannah and Devin opted not to do a first look…but they wrote letters to each other for before the ceremony! SO sweet!!!

The sweetest little ring bearers!!!


I could’ve photographed these two ALL day!!!
