Winter Wonderland Styled Wedding | The Trivium Estate | Forest, Virginia

January 8, 2019

I still get choked up when I attempt to find adequate words to sum up this shoot. In short, it was MAGICAL. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been one month since we dreamed up, shot, and had the honor of having this winter wonderland shoot featured in Hill City Bride! You can view the full feature here!

Having grown up in upstate New York, I annually pine for snow, and am usually disappointed in Virginia’s lack of *real* snowfalls. When the forecast predicted an early December snow last month, I desperately wanted to believe it was true! As the snow approached and looked more and more promising, I began to dig up my dreams of a winter wonderland wedding styled shoot that displayed the magic, wonder, and joy of winter. A few texts and emails later, and we had everything ready to go for the weekend’s snowfall!

Words cannot express just how THANKFUL I am to have this community of creatives that braved a foot of Virginia snow for some crazy photographer’s dream! It was truly magical. Those big fluffy snowflakes, the estate blanketed with snow, models who were all smiles through the COLD snow and temperatures, the most perfect and elegant snowflake wedding gown, and that greenery bouquet of my DREAMS. This winter wonderland wedding styled shoot was beyond magical, and PJ and I are forever thankful and forever in love with these images! I hope you enjoy my favorites from this shoot, and be sure to check out Hill City Bride’s feature of it!
