I am not sure where to start with how much I love this couple or how much being apart of their wedding day meant to me. I have known Cameron since birth because our Mom’s were college best friends, making him like another older brother to me. When I first heard about Morgan, my hope was that I loved her just as much as Cam. Needless to say, we hit it off instantly and Morgan became not only my most ideal bride, but instantly apart of the family. Cameron and Morgan are two of the kindest, most thoughtful people you will ever meet and it constantly shines through in how well they love others.
Morgan and I talked multiple times a week up until the wedding, which was so special to be included in so many of the plans. I knew their wedding was going to be insanely beautiful when Morgan first told me they had chosen their venue, Big Spring Farm in Lexington, Virginia. Big Spring is one of my all time favorite venues because of it’s unparalleled mountain views, serenity, and the kindness of the owners, Buddy and Jill. As planning continued, it was so clear that their wedding day would be filled with personal touches and most importantly, surrounded by all the people that they love most.
When their wedding day arrived, it was the clearest and warmest September day. They spent their mornings intentionally, soaking up every moment as they prepared for walking down the aisle. They opted to write each other letters to be read before the ceremony, one of my favorite moments. Following this, they had an intimate first look and time to spend with each other and of course, their dog Briggs, along with some pre-ceremony portraits. The ceremony was personal and perfect, especially since Cameron’s brother, Grayson, officiated the ceremony. The love that Cameron and Morgan have for each other was clear through their emotions and promises they made to each other in front of all of their family and friends (don’t ask me if I cried behind my camera, because I did).
The rest of the day was a celebration, filled with laughter, dancing, and the most beautiful golden hour. Morgan lost her dad in high school and while he could not be there physically, his presence was felt, as they made sure to include him in all aspects of their wedding. The warm weather, cloudless sky, and perfect sunset made it impossible not to feel him there with both of them on their wedding day.
Cameron and Morgan made time for some portraits in the mountains during this time and they are my favorite pictures from the entire day. The warmth felt in these pictures represents how the entire day felt, full of light and love. Following these pictures, the two of them were able to have fun and dance the night away with their guests until their sparkler exit.
If you survived this small novel, then by now you love the two of them just as much as I do! I am thankful to know such incredible people who truly are better together in their marriage. It is a privilege to know them and I am grateful to have had a small part in their wedding!
And now for the fun stuff! Feel free to scroll some of my favorites from their gorgeous day!
