The couple: Kristina and Nathaniel
The Wedding: 8.27.10 – Rock Hill Plantation House, Stafford, VA
What three adjectives that best describe your wedding? Fun, casual and personal
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We spent a lot of time looking at DIY wedding blogs and adding our own spin to things. We definitely werent going for traditional. We really wanted to capture the essence of us while making sure our guests had a great time. Since our wedding was very homegrown we were able to do things just the way we wanted.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? We love that we have such amazing friends and family that helped us throughout the whole process, especially with the day-of arrangements, decor, set-up etc. Our best man and his wife surprised us with a photo booth, which was an amazing gift that the guests had a blast with. We loved all of our vendors, especially Rebekah Murray! She was amazing to work with and had creative ideas for unique photos. All in all were glad we could pick and chose what we really wanted, not necessarily what was expected. We made all the decisions for us, and the best decision was getting married!
Wedding color palette: Lemon, chocolate, burlap with a touch of white and leafy green.

I have never really liked a jumping picture but the below the bride and groom in sun glasses is great!! So different! And the colors are so fun and cheery!
Got to love that first shot!
love this shot!
What a wonderfully warm vibe this whole wedding gives off! Kudos to the bride & groom for pulling this together with their own style. I especially love the burlap touch in the color palette set against sunny yellow…and those suspenders on the groomsmen are just too cute!
I disagree.. i love the first picture.. its fantastic!
Great colour palette!! and I love the image of the wedding party all jumping in the air, amazing!
Oh my gosh I love this wedding! All the fun and silly pictures really add that special touch to the day. You can completely see who the couple is! Love the details
Gorgeous photos! congratulations photographers:)
I love these images! The first one is full of so much energy-it’s great! It’s obvious that everyone there must’ve had a blast :) And the setting was gorgeous to top it all off! Awesome- Yay for fun- not stuffy weddings :)
I think the jumping picture is great! It’s not your typical “everyone stand in a line and jump” photo. The depth is great. And i think the chalkboard word bubbles could be pretty hilarious- great stuff!
I love the panoramic picture of the outdoor service. Very nice capture! It gives the setting and a certain aura of a special day. Nice work!
This is beautiful! I love their glasses!
