Morais Vineyard | Bridal Portraits with Caleb + Cassandra

Oh hi, don't mind me. I'll just be drooling behind my laptop screen staring at this GORGEOUS couple. Caleb and Cassandra met me and an amazing team of vendors (my dream team to be exact) for a day full of bridal goodness at Morais Vineyards in Bealton, VA. The day went right as planned and I couldn't have asked for a better day! Grab a tissue box, because these are just too good to be true!

Also! Make sure to check out a little recap video of Caleb and Cassandra on the big day created by Josh from Wanderer Films! It's just too good... Check the link below and give him a thumbs up!


Love Story by Cassandra:

"Our love story began the summer of 2014. I had just graduated from high school, and Caleb just finished his first year of college. He and my brothers were getting closer, so naturally I would see him more and more at my parents house. I started realizing that I was looking forward to the days and times he would be there. Little did I know, he purposely started coming over when he knew I was home. Our parents, at the time, lived only about 3 miles away from each other, and we both enjoy running, so we would do our runs together. The running dates, turned into movie and dinner dates, turned into deep conversations and secrets told to no one else. We were best friends falling in love! We endured 2 years of long distance relationship with him in California finishing up college, while I was home getting my cosmetology license and working. The summers he was home, we would soak up every second we could with each other before he had to leave again. In the spring of 2017, he called me to let me know his parents were moving to Fredericksburg, Va, and he had some job and ministry opportunities for us open up also in that area. After lots of prayer and consideration, I decided to move there in July 2017. My daddy had told Caleb, that since I was making this big move for him, he wanted Caleb to also prove his commitment to me (aka engagement) lol thanks, daddy.

So, in September 2017, Caleb called me and asked to take me to breakfast. I threw some jeans on and a T-shirt, and we headed to Cracker Barrel. Afterwards, he dropped me off back at my house, no inclination of what he was planning. When I went into my bedroom there was a brand new dress, Coach perfume, jewelry, and shoes laying out on my bed. He had one of my friends sneak into my house while we were out! I immediately called him, and he told me to be ready in an hour for a photoshoot. We drove to the National Arboretum, where there was a trail of roses along with photos of us through the years leading up to the columns. At the base of the columns there was a circle made of rose petals, and that’s where he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. It was so magical. He even had a photographer friend there to catch the moment for us. We have been married a little over a year now, and have added a beautiful “fur baby” to our little family. So excited for what our future has in store, and thankful to God for what He has blessed us with."
