Gillian and Julia originally planned their industrial winter wedding for December of 2020.

Wedding inspo

One of the things I love about the Shenandoah Valley is all of the beautifully restored bed & breakfasts, inns and manor homes that flourish amid the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Best of 2020 – Year in Review

Wedding inspo

January 2020 seems like a different decade. It’s honestly kind of shocking to look back and realize the events that happened over the past year are all…in the same year.  Beyond what happened in the wider world, my personal experiences felt extraordinary and overwhelming.

Haley and Allyson’s Charleston, WV October wedding at J.Q. Dickenson Salt-Works was my last wedding of 2018. But goodness it was the perfect way to close out the 2018 season.
