Virginia Wedding Venue Ashley and Brandon 10.16.21

We celebrated a beautiful fall wedding day for Ashley and Brandon this past weekend.  Rain was gently falling as our morning preparations began, but Ashley said “I just feel like the sun will come out for our ceremony” and sure enough she was right!  A lovely outdoor ceremony, complete with a mountain wind and drifting leaves took place in the golden autumn sun!  Upon arrival, guests enjoyed apple cider on the porch, before entering a jewel toned reception room glowing with twinkle lights and velvet pumpkins and a swirl of rich colors.  The cookie table will be a familiar sight to anyone from PA or Pittsburgh.  It was laden with the most delectable looking treats and dainty bags to fill for a little snack later on!  While guests relaxed during cocktail hour, we enjoyed a mountain photo shoot following the ceremony, and Ashley’s dress danced in the wind gusts in the most magical way!  A dinner catered by the Bavarian Chef was followed by cake, and dancing.  One of the most unique parts of the day (aside from the t-rex cake topper! and giant wedding bouquet handmade by the bride herself) was the long distance “toast” given by best man Dave all the way from across the country via facetime.  And be sure to check out the lining of groom Brandon’s custom suit…a little tribute to the couples cats was hidden there!  I am so excited to share some favorite moments from this simply stunning October wedding day…
