Stonewall Resort Wedding Photography at Roanoke, WV | Brianna + Bryson


I’m always excited to shoot at new venues and exercise my creativity. New backgrounds, new architecture, and new elements always get those juices pumping. Add in Brianna’s amazing sense of style, including the flowers that she HERSELF and the mismatched bridemaids’ gowns… I’m totally dead and in love. 

Brianna + Bryson got married at Stonewall Resort at the Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park. It was absolutely beautiful and though the day was a tad rainy, it didn’t ruin the happiness surrounding the lovebirds!

LOOK AT THESE FLOWERS! Brianna did them herself, and I’m convinced she needs to open her own shop and share her creativity with other brides! Luckily, she’s actually considering it! 😉

These two sweethearts have been together forever, and it shows in the soft sweet love they share with one another. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Brianna and Bryson united their lives and love. 

These dresses have me in LOVE!

Rainy day snuggles are some of my favorite picturesque moments. These two took the weather in stride and if you look at their smiles, you can just tell how much they radiate love!

Brianna’s sister made this beautiful and scrumptious looking cake!

Brianna+Bryson were surprised how much they were able to enjoy their big day, especially since it seemed to fly by so fast! Just remember that even though the planning and the year/weeks/days leading up to saying ‘I Do’ are stressful, when it comes to the actual day, you’ll be wondering why you were so frazzled. Enjoy it! You’re marrying your best friend after all.

When asked if they had any sage advice or words of wisdom, Brianna+Bryson said, “First of all, choose Jacqie for the photos and they will be amazing. Prepare ahead of time, keep it simple, and once the day arrives, just relax, let go, and enjoy. Also, don’t worry about the weather, some of my favorite photos were in the rain with an umbrella!” Awwww, you two… <3

I had so much fun capturing the love of these two and I hope they have a lifetime of happiness ahead of them.
