Nick & Claire | Married Rustic Mountain Wedding at Shenandoah Woods in Luray, VA

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this wedding! Shenandoah Woods was the most amazing venue… in fact, while I was photographing the details I texted my mom and best friend saying “I found my wedding venue!!” – it’s just so pretty! The mountains, the ceremony site, the open air reception room… I couldn’t get enough!

I was just a tiny bit worried that it was going to start pouring rain during and after the ceremony, but instead we got some incredible sunshine! And during the ceremony, I kept looking over at the field that was just glowing with that amazing warm light, and I asked my second shooter “do you think they’d be willing to climb the fence for pictures in there??” ;) I decided to ask, and right away Claire said “yup! Let’s do it!!” !! I am SO thankful for brides that trust my vision :) It was not an easy task for Claire to hop over the cattle fence in that super poofy dress, but I’m sure she’d say it was worth it ;)

Nick proposed to Claire with a piglet named Hopscotch (Claire’s favorite animal!), who was wearing a tag that said “Will you marry me?”. After a year and a half of wedding planning, they finally got to say “I Do!”! What an honor it was to witness their vows, and photograph the love they have for each other.
