A King Family Vineyards Wedding | Crozet, Virginia | Charissa and Sam

Charissa and Sam's wedding at King Family Vineyards in Crozet was absolutely AMAZING! I cannot get over how beautiful the day was – the weather was perfect, the venue was just stunning, and the mountain views were incredible. Set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, the mountains were the perfect backdrop for their wedding ceremony and all of the formal portraits. It actually reminded me so much of Charissa and Sam’s engagement session that we did at Sky Meadows! (See those pictures here.)

Scroll on down to see how this happy couple celebrated their big day!

Sam and Charissa chose to do a First Look and I’m so glad they did. It was adorable, and we were able to get the majority of their posed photos done before the ceremony!

Doesn’t Charissa look like a princess? Sam actually proposed to her at Disney, so I think this was the look she was going for :) And I loved all the greenery in her bouquet! Foxtail Cottage Floral did an amazing job with all the flowers.

The reception was held in the stunning King Family Vineyards Carriage House. Charissa and Sam didn’t need to do much decorating because the wine barrels, exposed beams, and sliding barn doors are all beautiful on their own! And I loved the simple greenery and floral garland along the head table.

Sam and Charissa chose a fun travel/adventure theme with their décor. They used luggage tags for the place cards, and they asked guests to contribute to a Bucket List with ideas of things for them to do together as a couple!

Sometimes the grand entrance is just TOO exciting, and results in chairs getting knocked over.

We lucked out with a beautiful sunset, and were able to sneak outside during the reception for just a few more bride and groom portraits.

The toasts were all great, and I’m so glad that their dog Bailey made it into the maid of honor toast! I think we all know that pup is an important part of their relationship  ❤❤❤
