Summer and Brian grew up just down the street from each other, but had no idea. It’s almost like they were meant to be, but just had to meet when the time was right. When they did meet, they were living together in Richmond, VA – and have been on a whirlwind of a romance ever since.

Melissa and I were sad to leave on the day of their wedding, but as we walked back to our cars, we kept going on and on about her perfect Summer and Brian were together. Theirs is a love that is unique, and so, so true. They just beam when they are together, and we cannot wait to see what their life together will bring.

It was an absolute pleasure being a part of their wedding day, and we are really excited to share with you some of their photos – it’s been difficult narrowing it down! You’ll see why…groom getting ready pictures

Summer and Brian opted to have a private first look, and it’s wonderful to watch from behing the lens as they saw each other for the first time. Brian was thrilled to see his bride:first look picture groom reaction pittsburgh

Their wedding was held at Destiny Hill Farm, which is owned by Summer’s aunt and uncle. We truly felt at home there all day, and it was a stunning backdrop all day long. The barns, fields, and sky was like none other!blue bridesmaids laughing candid picture

Destiny Hill is a lavender farm, but due to the long winter the lavender had yet to bloom. STILL – the fields were wonderful, and I loved the curving lines it created! The curving of the lavender goes as a cool contrast with the curving of Summer’s long cathedral veil!

Snuggling close! IN FACT: We were going to head back to the reception before these photos were taken, but Summer specifically stepped in and said “Can we shoot some more photos? I just want to have some time alone and I like to kiss him!!” DONE!desinty hill wedding pictures

After taking the photo above, I swung around the back of the barn for this different take on the same pose.pittsburgh wedding photography

Thank you, wind. And Summer for being gorgeous. And Brian for being awesome and in love with this lady!black white wedding pictures beautiful

We also made sure to get a big, family picture in front of the barn! I think that’s frameable!large family picture destiny hill

The barn was lit with strung lights and paper lanterns, and on the right they have a moment to just soak in the late afternoon sun in each other’s arms:weddings at destiny hill farm
