Marie and Ryan had a wonderful wedding day on October 22, 2015.  They chose an intimate ceremony for just the two of them and will celebrate with a larger reception with friends and family later in the year.  After their Skyline Drive elopement, this adventurous couple was ready for a weekend spent camping in Shenandoah National Park.  Ryan kept us entertained with his funny poses and Marie was gorgeous in her wedding gown (a last minute save when her original dress fell through).  Enjoy some of our favorite moments from their wedding day…
