Cory & Gaby A Romantic Highholdborne Estate Wedding

When we arrived on the road to this Highholdborne Estate wedding, I wasn’t prepared for just how spectacular it would be.  Imagine a gorgeous estate nestled up in the mountain tops, with the most epic view of Loudoun County in Virginia.  Then amp it up in your mind a few times… that’s what Cory and Gaby chose as the backdrop from their stunning wedding day.

This day was as sentimental, joyful, romantic, and as lovely as it gets.  From the beginning of the day, both Cory and Gaby were so overcome with tears of joy! After a long time waiting, their wedding day was finally here.

There were lovely touches throughout the day, with lots of nods to their families’ legacies.  Gaby’s bridal details were full of her grandmother’s pieces, including a beautiful mantilla that she wore at the beginning of the day to honor her.  Gaby’s amazing cousin created all of the floral arrangements and bouquets… her touches were everywhere and made guests feel so loved appreciated!

Needless to say, family is so important to these two, and if you spent even just a few minutes with each of their parents and sibling — you can tell why!  Everyone loves Cory and Gaby together and are so supportive!  From each of the speeches given by Gaby’s dad and siblings, and Cory’s brother, you can just tell how much they all love each other, and what a joy it was to be joining these two families.  They also love to have fun, and it was hilarious hearing all about Cory’s life before he met Gaby ;)

At the ceremony when Cory finally got to see his bride, he was just overcome with emotion.. and who could blame him? She was stunning.

These two, when they saw each other for the first time… it was just so special.  He looks at her with such adoration, and it’s as equally reciprocated on her end.  Even during portraits at the end of the evening, just looking at each other these two teared up — in the best way possible.

This day was a dream come true for Cory and Gaby, and it was such a wonderful celebration of a truly amazing couple!  It was an honor to be a tiny part of it alongside so many other amazing vendors! 

I could go on and on for days about how much I love this couple, but instead, I’ll let you see how their Highholdborne Estate wedding day unfolded for yourself!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.
