Elegant Navy Fall Wedding at Stevenson Ridge Allysa + Nathan | Fredericksburg, VA

Even though it was over 80 degrees, Allysa and Nathan’s wedding felt like my first “real” fall wedding of the year!! The beautiful berry tones and navy dresses combined with the changing leaves made it fall-lovers dream come true. I first met Allysa at my studio last year for our consultation. She told me all about how her and Nathan met in high school (but didn’t date until later on) and about her beautiful proposal story. Nathan had booked an amazing 3-day weekend trip for them in the mountains, and proposed after a few days of hiking, exploring and enjoying the fall weather together. They even got to see wild ponies while they were there!!

I absolutely loved how calm and relaxed Allysa and Nathan’s wedding day was. No one was stressed or anxious, no one complained and everyone had so much FUN. They even got to include their two adorable pups in the big day!! They shared a teary-eyed first look, she wore a stunning bridal gown and they had time for THREE (3!!!) sets of portraits. It was a dream come true for any photographer!!

Allysa and Nathan: thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your incredible wedding day celebration! I am so, so grateful for you both and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!
