Charlottesville, VA Trump Winery Wedding | Melinda & Joe

January 10, 2022

Oh I’ll bet you remember these two! Melissa and Joe had the most INCREDIBLE engagement session at Swannanoa and are literal MODELS! I left their engagement session just wishing the time away to get to their Trump Winery Wedding! (For those of you who are interested in browsing their engagement session- and I think you definitely should- click here!)

I love how fun these two are and how much they are willing to be adventurous when it came to photo prompts and posing. They shared all of their signature photo moves with me and I was there for it. Melinda was just as excited to do the lift in her wedding gown as she was in her engagement dress, and NAILED it again… Joe too of course!

Trump Winery Wedding Day

I was so excited when Melinda shared that she would do a first look with her Daddy and Joe, I swear I’m a bawling mess behind my camera you guys during these lol! The meaning of Family to them is everything and that exudes from each member. I felt “home” with them.

Their wedding day was classic and fun and boy could this crew DANCE!

Their Trump Winery Wedding was held in the chapel and it was a packed house but SO worth it. Those views and the detail throughout are just phenomenal. The smiles on their faces of excitement just made you want to jump up and down. One of my many favorite parts of the evening is breaking away and having the two of them make a wish in the fountain. Something so simple can be so impactful and that moment was def that for me.

Melinda & Joe, thank you for choosing me to be beside you through this incredible journey and day. Even more, thank you for your hearts that shared more love with me than I could have ever hoped for. Melinda, sharing your kind words and love as my Family and I walked a torturous path with my FIL’s illness and diagnosis. I will never be able to tell you how much your kindness and empathy means to me. You are both incredible humans and I can’t wait to see all the more incredible things you both accomplish. I am SO SO proud of both of you and honored to know you. Enjoy their gallery!
