Brittany & Chris' Charming Lynchburg Wedding

I'm swooning over this couple's wedding, and will certainly be pinning away many of the decor details captured! It's charming, historical and downright blissful! Photographer Rachel Abi was there to capture it all, and she did so beautifully. 

Rachel shared a little insight on how Brittany and Chris met, and some details about their wedding day:
Brittany and Chris met at work. He bartended and didn't seem to see her and she waited tables but didn't feel confident to go after him. Slowly a friendship built and then quickly moved to a deep love that brought them to their wedding day at an old family Church that had been abandoned.

Brittany radiated beauty and Chris couldn't stop smiling the whole day. Every side of their families came out to celebrate and chip in their skills and talents!​

Please enjoy Brittany & Chris' Charming Lynchburg Wedding, as photographed by Rachel Abi:

Love it all! Can't get over the idea of their vows being exchanged in an abandoned church, and the sweet details in the reception. The hanging bunting banners and lights add a bit of a whimsical vibe. I also love the peach and gray color palette, it's perfect!

Many thanks to Rachel Abi for sending your work our way to feature!
