It was a joy and an honor to host Arianna and Will’s gorgeous Virginia elopement!  This fun loving couple had plenty of neat ideas up their sleeve to personalize their day and highlight all the things they love the most!  Arianna and Will chose a very unique theme for their wedding aesthetic, basing it off of vintage travel post cards!  They brought a beautiful collection of vintage cards with them, including some that featured Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National park, which is right next door to us!  Arianna went for a vintage hollywood glamor feel for her bridal look.  She was simply stunning in her beautiful gown and side swept hairdo, fastened with a delicate handmade haircomb.  Arianna and Will each wrote and shared some beautifully personal wedding vows, and by the time they were through, there was not a dry eye between them.  These two share a wonderful connection, and it was so special to witness their vows and their complete love and dedication to one another’s happiness.  Arianna and Will have the most wonderful rescue dog, who has been part of their family for the past 5 months.  They knew they’d like him in a few photos, so they hired a dog sitter to watch him at their nearby cabin, and then bring him at the end of their event so he could play a small part in their big day.  I loved meeting Gus, and had a few fleeting thoughts of dog-napping him, as he is just so adorable and well behaved 🙂  I am so excited to share some favorite photos from this gorgeous wedding day for a simply spectacular couple…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

xoxo Heather

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 […]
