Winter

It was a chilly but beautiful day in the Blue ridge mountains for Jessica and Corey’s lovely winter elopement!  I already knew that Jessica would be a bold and daring bride, as she shared with me in one of our planning emails that she had just hand dyed the bottom of her wedding gown herself, […]

After a very short winter break, we started 2022 off in the most wonderful way, with Shannon and William’s New Year’s Day elopement.  This young marine and his beautiful bride shared an intimate celebration with family as they started the new year on a grand new adventure!  We didn’t get to meet Shannon and Will […]

We closed out our 2021 wedding season with Katrina and Kyle’s gorgeous December 19th wedding day!  It was the perfect way for us to end our season…a day filled with love, merriment, dancing, and festive holiday touches.  Our bride and groom chose rich tones of Hunter green and accents of Gold for their wedding decor, […]

Courtney and John are the kind of couple you just instantly fall in love with.  We planned their beautiful December elopement from a distance, over email, and when the big day arrived, we were so excited to finally meet them!  The moment they walked through the door, we knew it was going to be a […]

Cailin and Hunter are high school sweethearts…as the sweet pillow they brought for the front parlor said “established in 2012”, and now in 2021, they have made it official.  We were so excited to be a part of this very special wedding day!  The venue glowed in flickering candlelight, crackling fireplaces, and the warm hues […]

We loved every minute of Autumn and Colton’s beautiful wintry wedding day at the Golden Horseshoe Inn!  Autumn is no stranger to the Golden Horseshoe Inn, where she was once a bridesmaid in her sister’s wedding!  We love that so many special family memories have taken place here for this sweet bride!  Autumn and Colton […]

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, […]

Sierra and Jamal celebrated their wedding day on a beautiful December afternoon.  After a cozy fireside ceremony, they adventured with us to Skyline Drive, where we were greeted by the most beautiful winter sky – and also an owl!!!  Enjoy a sneak peek into Sierra and Jamal’s beautiful wedding day… Congratulations to the new Mr. […]

Are you ready for a dose of holiday cheer?  We were cheering when we found out how much Angela and Michael love Christmas.  They gave us full rein when it came to decorating for their romantic December elopement, and so we added Christmas touches to our hearts delight.  This sweet and easygoing couple charmed us […]

Elizabeth and Michael and their darling little one spent a beautiful afternoon with us at the Golden Horseshoe Inn for their snowy January wedding day.  Elizabeth brought a beautiful handmade fabric and wooden bouquet, that was the perfect compliment to her rustic country wedding style.  After a cozy indoor ceremony, our bride and groom adventurously […]

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 […]
