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 grey, were accented with touches of silver, and some really fun and unique wedding touches including the super cool skeleton cake topper pictured above!  Teri-Jo also brought some very sweet mementos to be a part of her wedding day, including a photo of her Grandparents, and the special necklace that used to belong to her Grandmother (Teri -Jo wore this as a bracelet on her wedding day!).  Some other neat details to check out are the AMAZING wedding bands our bride and groom chose.  Both are incredibly unique and so beautiful.  Teri – Jo was a stunning bride, and her dress was lovely in its simplicity, and elegant details with a long row of buttons running down the back and a full skirt that twirled so beautifully.  We loved getting to know this inspiring and hard working couple and sharing in the fun of the day with them.  We even braved a very windy mountain top for some epic photos at the end of the day!  I am so thankful we had the chance to host this special day, and can’t wait to share a little sneak peek of this amazing Virginia elopement…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
