Natasha and Scott’s wedding at the Trivium in Forest, VA was absolutely beautiful! The couple lives in Hawaii but had a destination wedding in Virginia and I was beyond honored to photograph these special moments in their lives. Every little detail was impeccable! From the gorgeous wedding dress and shoes, to the amazing cascading bouquet that Natasha’s mom made, everything was breathtaking.
One of my favorite things to witness was the lei exchange during the ceremony. It was the perfect way for Natasha and Scott to express their love for each other Hawaiian style. To give someone a lei symbolizes the love, respect, and affection one has for the person they are gifting the lei to. How beautiful is that?! View full post »
After photographing Danni and Rory’s wedding at Glencliff Manor the weekend before, I was back at this gorgeous venue the following Saturday to document Amy and Nathan’s wedding. From the moment I met these two I knew there was something special about their relationship! From their engagement session at the Old City Cemetery, to their beautiful wedding at Glencliff Manor in Rustburg, Virginia, everything was perfect.
When I arrived at the venue and saw Amy’s dress, as well as all the pretty little details she has put so much thought into, my jaw dropped. I mean… that wedding dress was flawless!! SOOO pretty! I could photograph it for days. After I photographed the dress, Amy handed me all the other details: her shoes, wedding rings, invitation, etc. The rings were placed on an antique Bible which belonged to Nathan’s grandfather. I absolutely adored that idea! View full post »
Big congrats to this amazing couple who got married at the beautiful Glencliff Manor in Rustburg, Virginia. Their wedding day was filled with lots of joy and laughter! Danni and Rory were surrounded by family and friends as they said their “I DOs” in a beautiful outdoor ceremony setting! Just wait until you see the ceremony decor… they had spanish moss hanging from the trees and the most beautiful light shinning through the woods. It goes without saying that their outdoor ceremony was one of a kind! To be completely honest, Glencliff Manor is a one of a kind venue all together. If you don’t believe me, see for yourself. Here is an interview I did with the amazing owner, Teresa, a while back. If you are looking for an all-inclusive wedding experience, Glencliff Manor in Rustburg, VA is the venue for you!
Dani and Rory, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your big day! You had the most beautiful wedding and your joy is simply contagious! I wish you all a life full of happiness for many years to come! View full post »
I am so excited to finally be able to share Sarah’s bridal portraits at the Historic Avenel in Bedford, Virginia! It goes without saying that I love me some gorgeous bridal portraits, and bridal sessions are my favorite. The only tricky thing about them is that I can’t post them right away! And I want the whole world to see them because my brides are absolutely gorgeous!
Now that Sarah and Josh have tied the knot, I cannot wait to show them to you all! They got married at Sorella Farms in Evington, Virginia last Friday and their wedding was absolutely amazing! Make sure to check out their wedding post if you haven’t already, you won’t regret it! View full post »
This weekend we photographed wedding number two out of the five weddings we haveon the books at Sorella Farms this wedding season. It’s always such a joy to go back and see our Sorella family, the beautiful venue and landscapes… and not to mention that my Sorella Farms brides are really special to me!
Stephanie and Josh’s wedding day started off with a little bit of rain, and although it was drizzling during the ceremony, they had the most beautiful outdoor ceremony together with their family and friends.
Mr. and Mrs. Tucker, thank you for choosing Alina Thomas Photography to capture these special moments in your life! We were truly honored to be there and celebrate with you on such a monumental day. View full post »
To say that Sorella Farms is one of my all time favorite wedding venues to photograph at would be an understatement! From the rustic reception barn, to the beautiful outdoor ceremony sites and blue pond, Sorella Farms offers a wide variety of locations for wedding photos.
Although the forecast called for rain on Friday, Sarah and Josh’s wedding day was nothing short of perfect! What I loved the most about this wedding was the attention to detail Sarah put into planning her big day. Every little thing was part of a bigger story. Sarah wore the pearl earrings that Josh gave her for their first Valentine’s day, and a bracelet that he had made for her for their second Valentine’s day together. I mean, how sweet is that?!

On Saturday, I had the incredible privilege of photographing Maria and James’ wedding at Sorella Farms in Evington, Virginia. They didn’t let a small storm get in the way of celebrating one of the most important days in their lives. Maria remained calm and composed throughout the entire day, even though the outdoor ceremony she had planned for almost 2 years had to be moved inside due to the rain. The rustic wedding barn at Sorella Farms made for a beautiful indoor ceremony.
Some of Maria’s family flew in from Peru and even brought a little surprise for the bride and groom. They put together a beautiful dance from each region of Peru and did an outstanding job with the choreography. View full post »
West Manor is every photographer’s dream wedding venue! Located in Central Virginia, it offers a wide variety of backdrops for photos, and the inside of the estate is just as dreamy: lots of natural light coming in, and the bridal suite is one of the most beautiful getting ready rooms I’ve ever seen.

Heather and Clay are the sweetest couple and their wedding was nothing short of perfect! We even had cherry blossoms ya’ll! From the beautiful blush bridesmaid’s dresses, to the lovely spring flowers, Heather meticulously planned every little detail for her wedding day. And let me just tell you, everything was flawless!
