Andrew + Jessie got married a few weekends ago + it was. a. DREAM. When Jessie asked us to photograph her wedding, we were SO excited, simply because she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. So when she told us they would be getting married at the Greenbrier, it was just icing on the cake! Since we started our business, we have dreamed of the chance to shoot a full wedding day at the Greenbrier. The backdrop of bold patterns, beautiful architecture, all the white, (and not to mention that red couch!), just make every photo a stand out!
We arrived that Saturday afternoon just as they were finishing getting ready. The getting ready space + ceremony was held at the sporting club, which we had never been to before. But, when we walked in and saw the grand staircase and floor to ceiling windows, we knew it was going to be a great day. We photographed Jessie as she stepped into her stunning + classic dress. Her sweet mom + mom-in-love stepped in to finish buttoning up the back of her dress. Her girls all stood around watching, talking about how beautiful she was. Because she was absolutely gorgeous!
Once Jessie got in her dress, we snuck away to get some photos of the boys. It’s always so funny to see the contrast between the two. Girls are always so giddy + the boys are always kicked back relaxing. They are always a lot of fun to photograph though, so we grabbed some of them hanging out + helping each other get ready before heading to the greenbrier for some portraits!
Once we got Jessie inside, almost everyone she passed stopped her to tell her she was beautiful or take a photo of her. I leaned over to tell her that this is probably what it would feel like to be famous, and Lily + I realized what it would feel like to be body guards (haha).
The ceremony went perfectly. The violinist started to play, Jessie made her way down the grand staircase to greet her dad for the first time. They shared a sweet hug + some smiles before her dad walked her down the aisle + gave her away.
After ceremony we did some portraits on the grounds, which is ALWAYS our favorite part! Then, we drove up to The Summit for cocktail hour + reception. Y’all, we could not get over the view! The patio had an infinity pool that overlooked the Greenbrier + had mountains all around. It was so, so beautiful.
Their reception was also a blast. They had a live Jazz band that was insanely good! It was so hard to not join them out on the dance floor. Lily + I decided they had the best playlist.. switching between Frank Sinatra, Beyonce, + Earth, Wind, & Fire! Everyone seemed to have an incredible time, laughing, dancing, + celebrating the new Mr. & Mrs. Robey.
Andrew + Jessie, thank you so much for inviting us to celebrate with you all. It was such a special day + we pray that you have many happy years to come! We hope you love every frame from your beautiful wedding day. Wishing you both the very best!
