We were honored to host a beautiful springtime Virginia elopement for Katie and Justin this past weekend.  This sweet couple planned a day filled with beautiful pastel colors, and touches of springtime, like the special pink peonies that Katie requested for her bouquet.  Katie and Justin chose not to see each other on the wedding day until Katie walked down the aisle, but they did exchange love notes around the dressing room door just prior to their ceremony.  Katie was a stunning bride, and spent time with her mom getting ready for the big day in the dressing suite.  Katie had purchased a beautiful set of drapery and flowers to decorate the wedding arch for her outdoor ceremony, and we loved the soft romantic colors she chose!  After a lovely ceremony, with guests attending both in person and via Zoom, we strolled the grounds for some lovely photos before enjoying cake and a toast.  After a fun bubble send off at the conclusion of their celebration, Katie and Justin traveled with me to Skyline Drive, where we enjoyed the most perfect views, blue skies, and gorgeous spots for photos and extra footage for their wedding film!  This amazing bride and groom were even game to stop on the way back for some pictures in a flower filled field that had caught my eye!  We just love working with couples who are up for an adventure!  I am so excited to share some favorite moments from this extra special wedding day…

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

-xoxo Heather
