Fall Wedding in Virginia | The Refinery at 120 Wedding

This Fall wedding Virginia boasts black, white, and dark green wedding colors with a rustic venue of the The Refinery at 120 in Culpeper, Virginia. As I walked into the bridal suite, I was asked, “Have you ever tried New Jersey bagels?” The hospitality and love that this couple and their friends share is pretty much summed up in that question. A couple of bridesmaids immediately started toasting a New Jersey bagel for me, and another asked how long I had known the bride. We seemed like old friends. As a wedding photographer, my relationships with my couples is my favorite thing. Everyone else in that room had known the bride for years at least. And then there was me. They booked me last year, and had met me in person once. And yet, we all felt like old friends in this room. And my bagel was delicious.

When I first saw Tyler that morning, I asked him if he was ready. I handed him a note that Holly had written for him. He looked and me and said, “I’ve been ready a long time.” He shared with me that he had told her years ago, when they had just started dating, that they were going to get married. And he had been ready every since.

Cheers to you on your wedding day

I think those two little stories are important to hear before you look through these images. It helps you feel the love these two have for each other, and the love surrounding them. The classic black and white wedding colors was complemented by the simple greenery in the venue, and the beautiful Fall colors outside. These two are perfect for one another. I can’t help but smile. Everything about this Fall wedding day was beautiful. So cheers to you both! Holly and Tyler, I wish you both the very best in your lives together!
