Noah + Emily

April 20, 2024

Noah and Emily's wedding was an absolute dream! From the moment I arrived at the girls' Airbnb in Radford, Virginia, to my last shot as they drove away from their reception in Giles County, their day unfolded perfectly.

AFter getting ready,

we headed to the Highlander Hotel, which sits on the beautiful Radford University campus. A huge thanks goes to my photographer friend Kaitlyn for the amazing idea to do the first looks here! Emily was so beautiful, I can only imagine what her dad and Noah were feeling as they saw her for the first time! If these don't convince you to go for a first look, I don't know what will!!

The whole Bridal party joined the rooftop fun

and if you can't tell, these two have THE best squad supporting and loving them. A fun, sweet bridal party is truly the icing on the (wedding) cake.

I also had time

to grab a few portraits of Emily, and Emily + Noah. Melissa with Flower Haven knocked the florals out of the park. I absolutely love the colors!!

After First looks,

it was time to hurry back to the church for the ceremony! It was so wonderful to see their home church full of their family and friends.

Following the Ceremony,

we all headed to the picturesque Walker Creek Barn, located in beautiful Giles County. Everyone was blown away by the beautiful views on all sides, and I loved the setup inside the venue, too. Noah and Emily definitely know how to throw a party, and their guests were an absolute BLAST! Of course we snuck in a few more couple portraits before the sun went down, too!

Last but certainly not least,

the dance floor opened up, and did not empty until the final song! DJ Castillo was fantastic, and all the guests understood the assignment. I absolutely love documenting receptions like this, because people's personalities really shine through, and you get to see the couple interacting with all their favorite people at once.

I'm so honored Noah and Emily trusted me to document their most important day! Congratulations to the Lauridsens!!!
