Audrey and David wanted to plan a simple yet special wedding day, filled with rustic touches and great friends, and they certainly succeeded on both accounts!  This sweet couple chose a neutral color scheme of Cappucinno and Ivory, with some lovely hunter green and pale pink accents tucked here and there, to achieve a beautiful […]

Take my hand, will you share this with me, because darling without you, all the shine of a thousand spotlights, all the stars we steal from the night sky, will never be enough… This is such an exciting post to share!  Our very first wedding of 2021.  We’ve been hosting wonderful elopements during the past […]

We got to celebrate such a special day with Teri-Jo and Joel for their gorgeous April elopement.  When Teri-Jo sent me a photo of her Skeleton Wedding Sign, to help me get a sense of their style, I knew this was going to be a very fun and unique event!  Dark colors of black and […]

I’m not even sure where to begin, describing such a special day!  We simply had no idea what was in store for us before we met Barbara and Allan on the morning of their beautiful wedding day.  They are the most gorgeous, sweet and easy going couple.  Photographing them was a dream come true, and […]

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, […]

We adored Sam and Shasta from the moment we met them -they are such a sweet couple and their wedding day was just like they are – thoughtful, fun and filled with unique elements!  We LOVED the way they designated each table – with southern phrases instead of numbers – so cute!  We loved Shasta’s […]

Alex and Julia were married on a misty spring day at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  A pale pink color scheme blended perfectly with the soft spring feel of the day.  Enjoy some of our favorite moments from this intimate wedding day… Congratulations to the Newlyweds from the entire GHI family!

Theo and Mike’s beautiful wedding day decor was inspired by the book/series Outlander.  There were so many unique touches honoring their Celtic heritage and reverence for nature.  Swaths of tartan cloth and moss “runners” added just the right tone for their centerpieces.  Theo and Mike were both so handsome in their custom kilts and boutonnieres […]

We were honored to host Chris and Jeremy’s private elopement ceremony on 8.18.16.  This jet setting couple flew to Virginia just to be married in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains -they were engaged on a trip to the mountains so it was only fitting to be married there as well.  Joined by 2 special friends, […]
