Almost all of our weddings this year have had absolutely beautiful weather and we have been soaking it up. It’s as if God said, “you decided to have your wedding despite what’s going on in the world? I’ll give you the best weather we’ve had all month.” And the same was true for Cristen & CJ’s wedding day on October 17th, 2020. When we arrived at the family farm in Carrsville, Virginia, we were immediately welcomed and introduced to their sweet families. We knew from the start that their intimate farm wedding was going to be so special and beautiful.
Cristen & CJ have known each other since they were kids (check out their reception centerpieces for the adorable photo proof), and hearing stories from their parents about how they used to play together was so precious. Though they didn’t date until after high school, they have spent the last 9 years patiently awaiting this day. After almost a lifetime of knowing each other and almost a decade of dating, they are FINALLY husband & wife! It was such an honor to capture this sweet union.
We hope you enjoy Cristen & CJ’s intimate farm wedding in Carrsville, Virginia. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Baldwin!
Cristen & CJ’s family’s were so sweet and kind to us while we photographed their day. We were so thankful for how welcoming they were.
Cristen & CJ don’t love being the center of attention and so portrait time is not their favorite time, but goodness, you sure can’t tell by these photos! Swoon!
Congrats again to the new Mr. & Mrs. Baldwin!
