Keswick Vineyards has been the home to many of my Charlottesville weddings, and this one felt extra special! It’s not very common to get a wedding inquiry only a few months away from their date… But when Natalie & Josh inquired to finalize their last minute wedding celebration before moving to Germany, I just knew I had to work with them!
This couple planned their entire wedding via handwritten letters and email while Josh was finishing Army Ranger school. With their crazy travel schedule and last minute prep before moving across the world, we weren’t able to meet until 72 hours before their wedding day!!
For their engagement shoot, we got to explore and take pictures all around UVA’s Campus. We even took a break from the heat and enjoyed some sweet treats at Mudhouse Coffee Shop, the place where they first met on the Charlottesville Downtown mall. A few days later we were reunited for their grand wedding celebration at Keswick Vineyard! They had the most stunning day with an amazing mix of personalities and family memories to share!
Natalie & Josh were a blast to hang out with. Their fun and laid back personalities were so evident, especially when you would frequently catch them eyeing each other from across the venue. Shooting their portraits was such a breeze! All the smiles and inside jokes that they shared translate into their pictures and so evidently display their love.
I’m forever grateful for being a part of their last minute wedding plans and for the opportunity to spend a weekend as part of their love story! Look closely at the pictures below and you will see some very sentimental touches that Natalie & Josh made sure to include in their wedding day celebrations.
And of course, a very special shoutout to all the incredible vendors who were able to put this beautiful wedding together for Natalie and Josh!
