Charlottesville Wedding Photography- King Family Farm- Karla & Paul

Names: Karla M. Quintana and Paul K. Brooks

Wedding date: 04-15-2017

Wedding Venue: King Family Vineyards in Crozet, VA

How you met: Paul and Karla are college-sweethearts, actually old people college. They met at the War College and sat next to each other for an entire year, where Paul begrudgingly had to stared at Karla's University of Miami notebook every day.  While in school, they were both members of an elite study group named "The Four Horsemen."  The horseman were known for talking smack, giving each other a hard time and closing down a bar or two. 

Proposal Story: Although Paul didn't propose on the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.....where Karla expected him to, or watching the sun-rise over the beach in Zanzibar.... where Karla expected him to, or on that bridge in Amsterdam..... where Karla expected him to, Paul did propose a few months later on a perfect Friday afternoon.  In mid-February, Christmas lights and candles lit Paul's bedroom, the floor and bed covered in red rose petals.  Karla had no idea what was happening, Paul turned to her and got down on one knee.  Karla's auditory system shut-down and it was as if she was hearing Charlie Brown's teacher - Wah Wa Wa Wah Wa.  She can't remember a thing he said, but Karla agreed to spend the rest of her life with him and YES!  

Favorite moment from your wedding: When we exchanged vows and when we exchanged love letters - Paul's love-book. 

What went in to planning your wedding: Weekly telephone calls with my amazing wedding planner Cody and endless nights of trolling the internet for a ideas. I kind of miss it.

Where did you go on your honeymoon: Mini-moon through Virginia wine-country, stayed at the amazing Glen Gordon Manor in Huntly, VA.  Our real honeymoon will be to Morocco in December.

Did you use a Travel Planner: Nope, my husband the non-planner, planned it all!
