- Wedding: November 2014
We tied the knot on November 8th in the mountains of western Virginia and it was a perfect day! It was cool but didn’t rain which was my biggest fear (I figure spending that $30 on a clear umbrella guaranteed the sun lol).

Our wedding was smaller, we had about 60 guests and our wedding venue was just the right size (Golden Horseshoe Inn).
Our wedding colors were lavender, black and white (unintentionally the colors of the Baltimore Ravens, DH’s team…I gave him Ravens cufflinks on the big day).
Our manzanita branch centerpieces and table numbers. The table numbers are pictures of Darling Husband and I at the same age. <3 My mom and I made the centerpieces, definite labor of love.
Candy buffet! Our package at the venue included a coordinator and she and her team also took care of designing and setting up everything.
We loved our cake topper, I have two cats and Darling Husband has a pug and we wanted to include our babies somehow. 🙂
I added the sleeve topper to my dress, I though it made it look more fall-y.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup usually but i LOVED the airbrush makeup.
My handsome DH! 🙂 (In his tux shirt…that he realized he LOST 30 minutes before we were supposed to be leaving for the wedding weekend! omg wedding stress lol)
Our ceremony was outside overlooking the mountains, reception was inside.
From our spice of life ceremony. I’m going to neaten it up and have Darling Husband gorilla glue the wooden stopper in place.
Bridesmaids wore black dresses, different styles. Groomsmen wore dark gray suits.
Ww did a first look which I definitely recommend, especially if you’re a fall bride getting married after daylight savings has ended (less daylight, etc.)
Our cake was so good, white cake with raspberry filling.
My cousin, who bakes on the side, surprised Darling Husband with a Ravens grooms cake. He loved it. 🙂
The photo booth was a huge it. Our vendor put together a scrapbook with a copy of everyone’s photos and notes they wrote to us. I’m adding pages to it and making it our wedding scrapbook.
My mom and I. 🙂
Making my first s’more ever! The s’mores pit was a big hit too, especially for the smokers who were glad they didn’t have to freeze in the night time temps.
I think this might be my favorite pic! It was hilarious to do it…you have to hold really still for a time while others make the hearts or swirls or what-have-you. At one point, two members of our coordinator’s team were running around us make swirls and one panted, “yeah…I have a weird job.” lol
The end of a wonderful beginning.
