Virginia Wedding Photographers | Mountain Lake Wedding Photos

Sarah and Derek met after her freshman year of college.  They have been together for nearly a decade.  He proposed to her at a winery, she was totally surprised when he popped the question!  Their wedding took place at Mountain Lake Lodge with their ceremony at the gazebo and their reception taking place at Mary’s Barn.  Sarah’s “something blue” was her wedding date embroidered into the back of her wedding dress.  Her “something old” was her grandmother’s diamond in her engagement ring.  Her “something new” was her diamond earrings.  For her “something borrowed,” Sarah held a piece of lace from her grandmother wrapped around the handle of her bouquet of red and white roses, gerbera daisies, and ferns.  Following the ceremony I was able to get the newlyweds to face their deathly fear of snakes to get some photos out in the woods.  Guests danced their butts off at the reception, if you couldn’t tell by the plethora of dancing photos.  NattieCakes in Roanoke baked their delicious marbled wedding cake.  I was happy to see that they did smash it a little bit, folks have been very polite with their cake smooshes lately and I really want to see someone get a full on Mrs. Doubtfire face full of sugar one of these days.  At the end of the night, Derek and Sarah left Mary’s Barn with a glow stick send off.
