We celebrated the first day of May with an intimate wedding for Andrew and Joseph.  This was a day with international flair, as Joseph’s family joined us “virtually” all the way from the U.K to participate in both the ceremony (with a lovely reading done by Joseph’s mother via Zoom! and a toast that knew […]

Tylir and Joshua’s wedding day was a dream.  Beautiful weather.  Beautiful people.  And all the redbuds in bloom, covering our mountain valley in a perfect haze of pink.  This day felt magical.  It was due in great part to the gentle love shared by this entire family.  The little things.  Which sometimes, are the things […]

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 […]

Sometimes a bride has so much on her mind we have to remind her to smile – but not our beautiful bride Kylie – I know her cheeks must be tired now from all the smiling she did on her wedding day:-)  It was a true delight to share a day with a couple as sweet […]

Our bride Emily looked like she stepped straight out of a fairytale, and her handsome groom David was such fun to be around.  This laid back couple chose a classic color scheme of Navy Blue with pops of Red, perfect colors for their December wedding day.  Adorable flower girls, hot cocoa for guests as they arrived, […]

James and Tiffany were planning to be married on 1.23.16 – the day a giant snowstorm was predicted here in Virginia (we ended up with over 2 feet of snow!).  They made the practical decision to move their wedding ahead two days, so that guests could travel in safety to enjoy their wedding day!  Our calm, […]

Vernell and Letitia were married on a beautiful December afternoon at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  After sharing an intimate ceremony surrounded by friends, we travelled to Skyline Drive for some beautiful photos and lots of laughs.  Enjoy some favorite moments from this very special wedding day…  

Stephanie and Joshua have an extra special wedding date: 12.13.14 and they were married at 3:16pm (or in military time 15:16pm)  so their actual wedding date and time was 12.13.14 15:16 – kind of awesome, right?!  Stephanie was a stunning bride – her gown was a vintage treasure that fit her perfectly straight off the […]
