The Clayberg Wedding with Violet Iris Studios

Last month, I had the extreme honor of assisting a wedding for the first time ever! I can't believe that I have never been a second shooter until now but I sort of fell in love with it. Being able to capture all of the beauty of a wedding day while some else has to worry about the timeline is a thing of beauty (Sorry Cate!) haha! 

Cate of Violet Iris Studios asked me to tag along and help capture all of the gorgeous DIY details and rustic charm that came along with this wedding. Becca & Phil were married at The Mill at Fine Creek which is secretly my dream wedding venue in Richmond. It's so beautiful that I jumped at the opportunity not just to shoot alongside Cate, but also to see the venue firsthand. 

The wedding day was literally picture perfect. Warm sunny blue skies and all the best hints of spring showed up just in time! Becca & Phil's ceremony started just as the sun began to hit and what resulted in the most gorgeous sunlit ceremony ever! 

Here's a few shots from the day and head over to Cate's website to see her gorgeous photos as well!
