natalie & ryan

As the hot September sun started to fade behind the mountains, Natalie and Ryan stood in the middle of an open field, surrounded by their friends and family, and pledged their love to one another. Though the daylight hours were coming to an end, Ryan and Natalie's life as husband and wife was just beginning.

The day progressed beautifully and seamlessly, and I was delighted to be a part of it. Natalie and Ryan elected to see each other before the ceremony on the campus of that other school, where they were engaged. We then headed over to the breathtaking and picturesque King Family Vineyards near Charlottesville, Virginia for the ceremony and reception.

I had so many images of Natalie and Ryan that I loved and wanted to share, so I apologize for the lack of "other stuff." Here are a few of my favorites:

The rings, of course (and major props go out to Ryan who designed Natalie's ring... I've never seen anything like it):
