A Wolftrap Farm Wedding Celebration
Holly and Blake were married on September 4th, 2016 at the Haven (this old church is surreal you guys! SO GORGEOUS) in Charlottesville, Virginia and continued their celebration at the rustic Wolftap Farm in Gordonsville, Virginia.
I first met Holly and Blake at their engagement session (you can find that here) in Charlottesville on the UVA campus. Ohhh, that campus is to die for when it comes to a photographer’s dream of a location for photos! The even more dreamy part is having such a sweet, genuine, and christ-centered couple like Holly and Blake. These two are so fun to be around and I knew after their engagement session that their wedding would be magical. Well, I was right you guys!!!
We started the day off so calm and peaceful. Holly and Blake both getting ready in separate locations in the house at Wolftrap as friends and family finished the final touches to the reception hall. Tables that included gorgeous tables arrangements and legos. Yes, legos! Blake is apparently a huge lego lover so Holly and him found a fun way to incorporate that in their day. Boy did the the kids love that!
As the day unfolded we came to the point of their First Look…my heart!!! These two shared such sweet moments together! Just look at the photos for yourself. We then made our way to the Haven where they shared in a service with their guests (WHICH I LOVED SO SO MUCH)! Before we knew it, they were MARRIED!
When and where did you both meet?
We met in August 2015 at Blake’s housewarming party. Holly was invited and introduced to Blake by mutual friends.
When did you know he was the one and vice versa?
Holly: When he surprised me with love notes while he was away on a trip in Italy.
Blake: When I surprised him with Death Star waffles (Star Wars reference) for breakfast before church.
What’s the one thing you both love each other the most for?
Pointing each other back to Christ in the tough seasons
How did he propose?
On a snowy day at our friend’s farmhouse. He set up the front porch with candles, tea (my favorite), and an enormous flower arrangement. He tricked me into going by saying that our friends wanted to have dinner with us at the farm. When we arrived on the porch, he got down on one knee and said, “Marry me… please?” Our friend’s camera was set up and hidden behind a pile of firewood, taking photos every ten seconds.
