Well friends, I can’t believe it’s already here, but it’s time for me to officially post my maternity leave! With our sweet baby due any day now, I’ve been on unofficial maternity leave for the past couple of weeks (our babies just normally come early!), but now it’s official, and it’s so crazy to think that baby Goosie could be here any day! I will be on maternity leave through the end of March for lifestyle sessions, and through the end of May for weddings.
These two are so fun to be around, and just keep you on your toes with their faces, laughs, and love. One of my favorite moments of the day, was watching Ray’s face when he saw Karly head toward the ceremony site. Karly has grown up around horses, and decided to surprise Ray by coming in on a horse-drawn carriage…and I’m pretty positive his reaction to seeing her drive up with her dad was EXACTLY what she was hoping for!
In picking a fall wedding in Virginia, you never quite know if you’ll choose the peak foliage color weekend, but I would say Karly and Ray hit this one on the dot! Their Ashland wedding was stunning, the cloud cover made all of the fall colors just pop like crazy, and their smiles and joy were simply contagious through the drizzles and all.
It was the first weekend of fall, but still felt like summer. Brenna and Jason’s wedding day dawned bright, warm, and beautiful, and reminded me so much of the two of them as a couple…these two embody that warmth and brightness in everything they do, and it was an absolute joy to be a part of their Hollin Hall Wedding! Brenna and Jason had friends and family come from (literally) all over the world, and that is just a true testament to the relationships these two create with those that mean so much to them.
