Laura and Will traveled all the way from Michigan to be married with us in a Virginia Blue Ridge mountains elopement!  We were so excited when the big day finally arrived and we got to meet our bride and groom for the very first time.  Laura and Will had booked their wedding day over a year in advance and after exchanging several emails, part of me felt like I already knew them!  My very favorite email included a picture of Laura’s amazing vintage inspired wedding shoes – a beautiful green (her favorite color!) which inspired the look of the rest of their details.  We created a sweethearts table draped in green velvet and a vintage suitcase revealed the most perfect cake for two perched inside!  I loved getting to hear about Laura and Will’s career paths – they are both medical workers…Laura is a Hospital Dietician and Will is currently completing his residency as an Emergency Room Doctor (I know!!!  I am so impressed with these two!)  Sweet, humble, and so very happy together…it was a delight to get the hear their special love story.  Laura and Will are high school sweethearts who met in (raise your hand if you can guess…) CHEMISTRY class!  Despite her self described shy and introverted nature, Laura knew she had met someone special and asked will out on a break between classes in their junior year…and the rest is history.  We got to spend the most wonderful day together.  A lovely outdoor wedding ceremony, with leaves falling around us as Laura and Will shared their personal vows.  And our trip to the mountains was unforgettable!  It was incredibly crowded on this peak fall weekend on Skyline Drive – but despite the crowded overlooks, all the other tourists made way for Laura and Will and cheered them on as we took some incredibly epic wedding photos.  We are cheering this sweet couple on too!  Thank you Laura and Will for driving so far and putting so much trust in us to host your wedding day!  I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of this incredible all inclusive elopement in Virginia!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
