Meg + David's Intimate Skyline Drive Shenandoah National Park Wedding

SHENANDOAH-NATIONAL-PARK-SKYLAND-WEDDING-PHOTOS-38.jpg

Meg and David met in high school and dated for a few months before they fell out of touch. They found each other again when David was in the Navy and Meg was a senior in college. They rekindled a long-distance friendship over a shared love of Tolkien, travel, great food, and outdoor adventures. After 6 years of togetherness, they tied the knot at an intimate Shenandoah National Park wedding on Skyline Drive.

There were so many things I loved about Meg + David’s wedding. I wish I could clone them and have clients like them over and over again. Their genuine connection was inspiring, and I loved how they poured so much thought and love into every detail of their day.

Meg wore her mom’s wedding dress, and David wore a bracelet to remember his brother. They exchanged their heartfelt, personal vows as they stood barefoot to feel more grounded and present at their intimate wedding ceremony. Their friends played music and the entire group of guests sang songs. It was all insanely beautiful, and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to capture Meg and David’s amazing wedding day.

(Also, I’m so obsessed with their hand-crafted their wedding invitations! How crafty are they?!)

Congratulations to Meg + David!

Gordon + Jo | Shenandoah National Park - Skyland Wedding Photos

Oh my goodness. I’ve finally gotten a chance to sit down and write about Gordon and Jo’s adorable outdoor wedding at Skyland Resort. The last time I photographed a wedding on Skyline Drive, in the heart of Shenandoah National Park, I got magical fog, but the weather for G+J was the complete opposite. This time, Skyland Resort was bathed in sunshine - a perfect setting for their beautiful summer wedding.

Gordon is an environmental science teacher, and Jo is a park ranger, so naturally they gravitated to an outdoor venue for their wedding. They planned a low-key ceremony officiated by Gordon’s sister, and set aside time throughout their day to escape into the woods for time with each other (and of course, me).

I don’t usually get inquiries from the groom, but in every single one of these photos, you can see why Gordon took the lead on booking wedding photography. These two are totally smitten with each other, and their connection is just so visible in their wedding photos. It’s the kind of connection that makes you want to snuggle up to the person you love and just celebrate with them.

Holy smokes, where do I even begin. I love photographing weddings, but when it’s for one of my very good friends? Dang. I still can’t get over how absolutely honored I am to have told the story of Michelle and Alex’s love. It’s not all that often when you get to sit at the head table, party the night away, and create magic with your besties. Michelle and Alex, thank you for being my friends :) 

We all spent the weekend together at the Mimsylnn Inn in Luray, Virginia before their wedding at Faithbooke Barn and Vineyards. Michelle and Alex ordered the absolute perfect Shenandoah Valley summer weather for their wedding day. Their day was filled with friends from all over the world, sunshine, lots of smiles, tears, some sweet tunes, and of course their motorcycle. You might remember their extremely hip engagement session? Yeah, they are so much cooler than I am. 

Michelle and Alex put so much time, love, and energy into each and every detail of their wedding day. From their DIY hand-painted signs, to their engraved rings, custom wedding dress, hand-written vows, and carefully selected music, they really created a day that was reflective of their relationship and life together.
