ALLI & ANDREAS | A ROMANTIC GOODSTONE INN ENGAGEMENT | MIDDLEBURG, VIRGINIA
Alli and I met in a Barnes and Noble Starbucks back in February and from the first interaction – we were both laughing and giggling like old friends. We sat there and sipped out coffee and talked about everything under the sun! It was nice to put a face to the name and get to know each other in person instead of emails! We talked about her wedding vision and European travel… (she’s headed to London this summer so of course I got excited and also jealous because it’s one of my favorite cities!) Andreas is an opera singer out and about on different assignments and Alli is studying to be a lawyer and leaving for NYC and London this Summer so with their busy schedules the only time for us to squeeze in their engagement session was this week! With the massive amounts of rain coming in and out of town I was crossing ALL of my fingers and toes and hoping that their engagement session would still go on without a hitch! We were SOOOO lucky that it was a clear day! I mean, we ACTUALLY saw the SUN and the crazy thing is, the next day was completely gloomy again. We had the BEST luck… not to mention an insanely beautiful venue to take photos! Goodstone Inn was absolutely gorgeous. Stone buildings, ivy covered walls, golden light shining over the rolling hills… I mean, seriously. #allthehearteyes
How cute are these mugs that Alli made?!I love how smiley Alli is!!I loved this fence and the ferns!The Spring House where they stayed at Goodstone Inn!Ivy & Stone — yassssss!So sweet!Andreas designed Alli’s ring to look like flower petals were holding up the diamond!Alli got a custom cape dress made for her engagement session. Her thinking – “go big or go home!”Lookin’ good, Andreas!!“Okay… let’s try standing in this tree…” perfect. Thanks for being adventurous with me!And then we wandered into the fields…and it was GORGEOUS!Sun-kissed fields!Alli – you’re glowing– literally… the sun in your hair!
Alli and Andreas, thank you so much for taking me to the amazing Goodstone Inn for your engagement session! You two are radiating love and I can’t wait for your wedding at Whitehall next May! XO!
