November

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, […]

Our sweet bride Melissa and her handsome groom Marcus have known each other since middle school!  They dated all through high school and now, 8 years later, we were so thrilled to be hosting their intimate wedding day!  We planned exclusively online, which meant that our first time meeting this wonderful couple was on their […]

The air had that special November glimmer that is so hard to describe.  A day filled with golden light caught under a clear blue sky, and the hidden landscapes of the mountains being revealed as the leaves fall away. November is my favorite wedding month.  Slow, and thoughtful, a little pause between the business of […]

Photos are my favorite way to freeze a moment in time…It passes so quickly, doesn’t it, that rascal Time.  Adorable babies change every day, and suddenly they are walking, weaving and unsteady, straight into your waiting arms. And then, in the blink of an eye, they are teenagers walking out the door, confident and excited, […]

You know how they talk about a person who can “light up a room” – well this was our gorgeous bride Sherry, to a tee!  The mountains were putting on their full November show, with scudding clouds and a brisk breeze, but Sherry arrived like a ray of sunshine…really funny sunshine, is that a thing?…warm, […]

“Ever since I was a little girl, the number 11 looked like two people standing side by side…it just seems like the perfect day to get married on” Many years ago, while hosting a wedding on the 11th of the month, the bride smiled shyly and shared with me “Ever since I was a little […]

I’ve always secretly thought it would be great to have a big brother, and I think so even more after witnessing the beautiful toasts given by the both the groom and then the brides older brothers at Angie and Daniel’s wedding day <3  Loving words, thoughtfully prepared with a heap of laughs thrown in, made […]

Delicate pine cones carefully collected from countless hikes (and one even found on the beach after a storm!) graced each table, and boughs of evergreen brought touches of the peaceful woods inside.  Rain gently fell and a cool mountain mist swirled outside mixing with the fall colors in a way that made you all at […]

A “monopoly hat”, a tiny tea laid out for fairies to enjoy, candy as far as the eye could see, lush flowers draped over sparkling lanterns…everywhere you turned at Allison and Thom’s wedding day, there was something delightful to catch your eye.  If I could choose a superpower, it would definitely be to time travel.  […]

Mari and Jorge were married at the Golden Horseshoe Inn on the most beautiful early November day.  Mari was absolutely stunning in her gown, and most certainly brought a tear to the eye of her handsome groom when she stepped onto the aisle.  Mari chose a color scheme of pale blue and white for her […]
