2014 has been an amazing year here at Alina Thomas Photography. So many good things have happened this year that l wouldn’t be able to write about them all, no matter how badly I’d like to. One thing that I consider important in the photography industry, is the connections I have made with other wedding creatives and amazing  people I had the opportunity to meet and work with. The wedding industry is made up of beautiful people that give their all to make sure that every wedding runs flawlessly. This year I had the opportunity to work with some amazing people whose services I highly recommend. Some of them were kind enough to allow me to interview them for the blog and you have probably seen some of them throughout the year. If you are getting married in 2015, I have compiled a list of my favorite wedding vendors for you to check out and read the interviews we did with them. All of them are amazing people who put their heart and soul into planning your wedding to ensure that your big day runs as smoothly as possible.

Here is my list of wedding professionals I had the opportunity to meet and/or work with:


Sorella Farms – Mary and Brooke are the sweetest people you will ever meet. We had the opportunity to meet them at the Sweet Sixteen Bridal Expo in Lynchburg, Virginia and became friends instantly. If you want to find out more about their wedding venue, Sorella Farms, you can read the interview we did with them on the blog.Sorella-Farms-Lynchburg-Wedding-Photographer

Glencliff Manor – We toured this wonderful venue for the first time a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with it. This venue is beautifully laid out and is the perfect spot to tie the knot. You can find out more about the history of the venue and the services they offer by reading the interview we did with this gorgeous wedding venue on the blog.wedding venues in virginia glencliff manor


Love is in the Air provides a variety of services. From decorations to flowers, cakes and catering, they truly are the one-stop-shop for your wedding needs. Linda Hall and Mary Love are the creative souls behind Love is in the Air and do a fantastic job. I had the opportunity to witness their beautiful work at a local workshop I attended and cannot wait to work together at one of our weddings in August.wedding catering lynchburg va


Makeup by Ashley. Ashley did the makeup for one of my brides earlier this year and I couldn’t help but fall in love with her work. My makeup abilities are very limited and when I saw how talented she was, I secretly hoped for an opportunity to arise for me to request her services. We had our Christmas pictures taken this year and, as expected,  I asked Ashley to do my makeup. I loved it SO much that I didn’t want to take my makeup off that night. She is such a sweetheart and to all my 2015 brides, she is offering a great discount in our welcome packet for using her makeup services. YAY!wedding-makeup-artist-lynchburg-va11
