Lori & Matt | Married


Matt and Lori were married at the historic Barboursville Ruins and Vineyards one year after Matt knelt down on one knee by the vines to propose to Lori! Their relationship history here made it the perfect place for them to become husband and wife. This amazing couple met in highschool, reconnected in college and started dating while Lori was at George Mason University and Matt at the University of Virginia. Charlottesville became the home of many memories for them. Having established a yearly ritual of apple picking at Carter Mountain Orchard and having their yearly picture taken overlooking the valley, Matt and Lori chose to have their engagement session there. It was so perfect to celebrate their relationship in such a meaningful place to them!

While In Charlottesville, Matt took a job at Barboursville Winery and it became another meaningful place for their relationship. It was the obvious choice for where Matt would propose to the love of his life! With the help of his former coworkers, Matt had the glorious moment captured in pictures and glasses of bubbly waiting for them to celebrate afterwards! So romantic!!

Their ceremony took place in front of the majestic historic ruins and their reception was in the beautiful winery! Lori’s cabernet colors were perfect for her vineyard wedding and a wonderful hint of fall to come. Matt and Lori are so perfect together! I wish them a lifetime of blessings!!
