Alyssa and Richard had such a beautiful day at the new Mountain Ridge Venue in Rustburg, VA. You really feel like you are in your own little solitude of the county, sitting right on top of a hill with peeks at the mountains. These two decided on a first look, which I hadn't done in awhile. I love first looks because you see the first reactions of bride and groom without the pressure of a huge audience. They had some sweet time together to admire how each other looked and let the realization of the day set in. Another huge advantage of a first look, is that you can get almost all of your post ceremony pictures done, leaving your guests with less time to wait in between! We got all of their couples portraits done, and of course made use of the fire truck, since Richard works for the Fire Dept. We then brought out the large and fun bridal party to get those shots done too. The ceremony was so sweet and simple, with a large audience of family and friends. We did get to step back out for some sunset portraits during the reception and they had such a fun reception! What a nice new venue in Rustburg!
