Annie and Ben’s Elegant Winery Wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia by Lexington Wedding Photographer Cassie Lopez
My best friend Annie got married! After months of planning and yes, stressing, the day finally came. Ben and Annie had their ceremony at the UVA Chapel. Ben’s parents were married at the same chapel. In high school, Annie and I drove to Charlottesville to see Mount Eerie perform at the chapel. And now, the wedding.
Annie’s family has been my family for 14 years. It was crazy to be at her wedding (and to be 8 months pregnant no less)! I even gave my first ever wedding speech during the reception! I mentally practice speeches about Annie at every wedding I go to. The day was surreal and magical and beautiful and so meaningful.
The reception took place at Septenary Winery at Seven Oaks Farm. I do not have many photos of it because Annie had another photographer for the reception. I was free to enjoy myself and participate as best friend of the bride.
