Old Pate Chapel Wedding: Luke & Claire

Every Old Pate Chapel wedding I photograph is so special! From the quaint chapel to the beautiful reception space at the Bottling Company, every single detail feels perfectly curated for a fairytale wedding celebration. Featuring tall white columns and high ceilings, the chapel’s exquisite structure and beauty is sure to impress. Luke and Claire’s wedding was definitely a highlight for me!


Claire and her bridesmaids had so much fun sharing laughs and getting ready together. The girls wore the most beautiful rusty rose chiffon dresses, while Claire made a statement in her stunning lace dress from Celebration Bridal.


Before the ceremony started, Claire and Luke shared a sweet first look moment alone in the bridal suite. Afterwards, we ventured around taking romantic portraits of the two of them, as well as beautiful bridal party pictures. We were even able to squeeze in all the family pictures before the ceremony! Talk about efficiency!


Luke and Claire had their first dance under the twinkly lights at the Bottling Company, followed by the mother-son and father-daughter dances. During her dance with her dad, at Claire’s request, all fathers and daughters that were in attendance were invited to the dance floor for their own father-daughter dance. It was such a special moment!


The entire wedding was laid back and relaxed, and this beautiful summer day ended with a bubble exit as the young couple sprayed their guests with silly string on their way to their honeymoon car. It was truly an honor to capture Claire and Luke’s Old Pate Chapel wedding in Lynchburg, VA! Feel free to scroll down and take a look at these beautiful photos. I’m sure they will warm your heart just like they did mine! Congratulations, Luke and Claire!
