Barboursville Winery E-session by Jodi Miller Photography


Guys check out these pics. In all but one, the groom to be is lovingly looking at his gorgeous fiance or resting his forehead against hers. I know you all, like me, love a really romantic engagement session especially after this last week, but throw in an Anthropologie wardrobe (where all of Natalie's cute outfits are from), some beautiful lighting and a Virginia winery as the backdrop and hello! You get this sweet e-session (and Love Story) sent over by the truly talented Jodi Miller Photography. To check out all the other awesome shots of Natalie and Michael head over to the blog and while you're there be sure to check out Jodi's lovely new branding and logo. I'm telling you this woman is a creator of prettiness. Enjoy the beautiful weather today!


{Natalie and Michael's Love Story} We lead incredibly similar lives and it was only a matter of time before our paths crossed and we realized we were meant to be together. It was the winter of 2006 at Massanutten Resort in Virginia where this finally took place. Michael was living in Washington, DC but would frequently visit the ski resort on weekends to visit old college friends, snowboard, and have a good laugh. I worked and played at the resort while in cottage. After several encounters on the slopes through mutual friends, we ended the season with a bond that couldn't be broken even when it became too warm to make fake snow. Promoted by our love of snow sports and our new found fondness for each other, we decided to move to Colorado for ski season in 2007. We had an unforgettable time. After moving back East, we continued to frequent Colorado as often as possible. On one particular ski trip in February of 2010, atop our favourite mountain (Vail), Michael asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Though we are both drawn to the deep snow and harsh peaks of the Rocky Mountains we chose Barboursville winery for our engagement session because not only are we lovers of Virginia wine but also because it's a picturesque representation of Virginia rolling hills and verdant beauty. Our wedding will be held several miles down the road from the winery at Montpelier Mansion (James Madison's home) on June 18th!

How refreshing and lovely is this e-session and they just look so peaceful with each other! I happen to love that it was at a winery since my unexpected love and fiancé and I love them and our first weekend road trip together was to one...it was wonderful!
