We had the most wonderful day with our sweet bride Hannah and her handsome groom Jack.  Our bride and groom made us feel like rock stars, as they traveled all the way from Florida to be married at the Golden Horseshoe Inn. And not to be outdone in distance, their family came from as far away as New York and California, to join Hannah and Jack for their beautiful and intimate wedding day!  Hannah spent the morning preparing with her mother and sister, and our groom Jack arrived a little later in the day with his mom and other special guests of honor.  Virginia weather has been unpredictable lately, but we were blessed with a warm sunny day, and held one of our first outdoor ceremonies of the year.  I had so much fun taking photos of this gorgeous couple, and their family.  After fun roaming the grounds outside in search of the prettiest photo spots, we adjourned indoors for a tea party style reception, and cake and champagne.  Hannah and Jack wowed us with their dance moves (there may have also been a conga line!) and had fun making their exit through a cloud of bubbles.  We then got to have a wonderful adventure on the mountain top and ended our day with a few more spectacular photos.  I am so excited to share some favorite moments from this fairytale wedding day…

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

-xoxo Heather
