We closed out the month of March with a breathtakingly beautiful Virginia elopement.  Our bride Kimberly and her groom Woodrow were so much fun to work with.  Planning with us long distance, they chose a color scheme of burgundy and blush, with a few gold accents tucked here and there, like their beautiful cake topper, and the heartfelt remembrance charm attached to Kimberly’s bridal bouquet.  Kimberly was the most exquisite bride and her flowy, chiffon dress was just PERFECT for mountain photos, as the wind swirled it around her in the most magical way!  Both the bride and groom enjoyed time to get ready in the dressing suites, and I loved how excited they were to exchange love notes through the dressing room door!  Joined by close family, Kimberly and Woodrow shared a lovely private ceremony on this beautiful and warm March afternoon.   We celebrated with cake, champagne and lots of beautiful photos!  After their bubble send off, we traveled up to Skyline Drive to take some wonderful mountain photos and finished just as a few lucky raindrops began to fall!   It was a lovely day, filled with so many beautiful moments.  I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of some favorite images from this beautiful wedding day…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
