This wedding right here was full of so much love. Finding the words to say to sum up just how special this day was is no easy task. In fact, I am not sure where even to begin. So let’s start with the obvious facts. Irvine Estate is just the most stunning, quintessential mountain venue I have ever seen. Located in Lexington, Virginia, this private estate is perched high up in the mountains with some of the most spectacular views. I can absolutely see why this venue was Sam and CJ’s favorite! With so much attention to detail, everywhere you looked, there was a personal touch that totally transformed this space to be uniquely designed for Sam and CJ’s special day. So much heart and soul went into planning, and that perfectly reflects my sweet couple. They put so much heart and soul into everything- their friendships, their faith, their careers, and most importantly their love for family and each other.
I knew going into this day that I wouldn’t be able to keep back the tears. Seeing Sam looking more beautiful than ever, with the anticipation of seeing and marrying her soulmate, she radiated pure joy. For those who know this sweet couple, they know the trials and triumphs they have overcome. The spirit and love of those who are no longer with them, could clearly be felt throughout the day.
Sam was just the most beautiful bride and it is absolutely impossible to take a bad picture of her. Her smile is contagious and so inviting. She exudes so much happiness and positivity, that it is no surprise she was surrounded by 10 of her closest girlfriends on her big day. The same goes for CJ. I absolutely loved spending the day with such a large bridal party! Thanks to an amazing team of vendors, especially Sam’s wedding coordinator, Brooke of Brooke Shehan Events ,the day went so incredibly smooth! We even had the most spectacular sunset while Sam and CJ shared their first dance as husband and wife. One word to describe the day, magical.
To know Sam and CJ and be a part of this occasion was truly an honor. Now without further ado, I am SO excited to share this gorgeous mountain wedding!! Congratulations again, Mr. and Mrs. Cahill! I love you two!!
