Jordan & Mario | Belle Haven on the James Wedding

Weddings

6/06/2014

When I first met Jordan for coffee, we talked for over an hour before we realized that we hadn’t even started talking about her wedding or photography! That’s when I knew I liked her…the “business” meeting felt more like catching up with an old friend than something formal! Since that first meeting, I was SO excited for Jordan and Mario’s wedding day!

Buddy joined me at the beautiful Belle Haven on the James which is a gorgeous property in Scottsville, VA right outside of Charlottesville! This was my first time shooting there but hopefully not my last! Cody and her team from Amore Events did an amazing job with florals, decorations, and making the day run smoothly!

The whole wedding day was so special! Some of my favorite parts of the day were when Jordan’s dad preformed the ceremony and when Mario and his mom salsa danced for their first dance! So sweet!! You can tell by the way they laugh that Jordan and Mario’s wedding day was filled with so much joy! So without further adieu, here are some of my favorites from the day…

There’s something about this wedding…your photos show that there was true love and joy here. I don’t know this couple, but I feel like I know they are lovely and have wonderful family and friends after seeing these images.
