Sasha and I instantly feel in love with Dave and Justine the first time we met them at their engagement shoot, and ever since we have been looking forward to they’re wedding! Justine and Dave’s wedding is PACKED full of attention to the details, and you can see the countless hours of planning and thought that went into every aspect of they’re wedding day. The weather on this particular day was rainy, which made for an absolutely beautiful back drop for so many of the photos, but prevented us from getting as many couple shots as we would have liked. Thus we are looking forward to a day after session with Dave and Justine, and will be sharing more couple shots at that time. Enjoy this drop dead gorgeous wedding! Justine and Dave….we LOVE you both!
Love this moment below with the flower girl dancing in front of Justine dress, no doubt thinking on her own wedding someday!
Justine you are gorgeous!
More ditty bags from the wonderful Dickie Morris of just a little ditty. We simply cannot recommend her beautiful work. Her ditty bags are by far our favorite bridesmaids gifts!
Love the moment below where Justine and her dad see each other for the first time that day! The emotion is priceless!
The first Look!
The rain made for some very fun umbrella photos!

Any other details unique to your wedding –
Our first kiss was at Carter Mountain Orchard, and that was where Dave proposed seven years later. I really wanted to include apples somewhere in the wedding to tie in our history at the orchard!
A little bit about you two, and how your wedding reflects who you are –
Dave and I met during our undergraduate years at UVA. We have been dating for almost eight years! I fell in love with Pippin Hill when I first saw them break ground a couple of years ago. I followed their blog and watched them build everything, and knew it was my dream wedding venue! Our whole wedding really reflects who we are and what we love: our families, our friends, nature, and the gorgeous mountains. We are so grateful to our families for making our dream wedding come true!
