This Dove Ridge Vineyard wedding took place on a blustery January day. Throughout the week I would periodically check the weather forecast for that Saturday, and every time it looked promising at sunny and 65 degrees. However, when we arrived at the venue that day, we found the conditions to be a little different. The sunny and 65 turned out to be 60 and WINDY. Although, at the end of the day, you would have never known it. Alaina and Eric were troopers, and we managed to conquer the wind.
This Dove Ridge Vineyard Wedding was full of sweet moments shared between family, friends, and the beautiful couple. One of my favorite moments was the first look that Alaina did with her bridesmaids. While i have photographed first looks with bridesmaids before, none have been as sweet as this one. The reactions from Alaina’s girls were so genuine and full of love. Be sure to keep a look out for their reaction as you scroll below. I think the best reaction was when the bridesmaids found out her dress had pockets. I mean, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?
Eric and Alaina, it was a joy capturing your wedding day. I wish you a lifetime of happiness, and may you continue to share the sneezing photos from your engagement session.
