Jesse & Krista: A Backyard Wedding | Greenock Manor | Orange, Virginia

Well it's a great story really...Jesse & Krista.

When they met, it was a coincidence through Craigslist. When Jesse asked Krista to marry him, it was printed on a onesie displayed on the best model ever. When they chose forever together through marriage, it was in a stranger's apartment. But - they chose forever and their forever was celebrated here. Jesse, Krista & I never met before I traveled to photograph their wedding but as soon as I showed up, there was an instant connection. I knew, this couple was going to have the best day ever & I was so lucky to be a part of it! 

Nestled in the outskirts of Charlottesville, Virginia, Jesse & Krista chose to get married at Greenock Manor. It was breathtaking, all the DIY touches they put on the estate showcased their specific interests & style. From the dessert bar to the hand-strung lights above their outdoor ceremony & reception site, each detail spoke volumes. Might I also mention their favorite detail of all, their daughter Emilia. She's sassy, adorable & one sneaky little girl but she was precious & it shows. While Jesse & Krista had gotten married before their family & friend celebration, it would seem as if the two were seeing each other as husband & wife for the first time all over again. 

Jesse & his men wore navy blue suits with burgundy ties to match the ladies burgundy dresses and Krista was escorted down the aisle to her husband in a skinny strap lace gown with a floral crown. Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Greenock Manor and accompanied by their friends and family from all over the world (yes, they had family travel from Thailand), they professed their love all over again for each other. The speeches were great, the weather was clear & they mingled the night away under the stars. It was truly a blessing getting to know Jesse, Krista & Emilia and I hope that we will see each other again. Congratulations Junvisetsaks!
