What do you get when you combine an awesome wedding location with the best bridal party, the best weather and the most fun clients? Mike and Angie's wedding day!
Seriously, this was an awesome wedding. The location was Shenandoah Woods in Luray Virginia, an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. The reception was held in their open air barn which has the most gorgeous southwest facing view overlooking the valley and the mountains. The ceremony itself was in shaded area to the side of the reception, facing another group of mountains! Everywhere you turned it was beautiful!
Now about Mike and Angie. What can you say beyond, "the nicest people I've ever met?" This was one of the best couple's I've had the honor of photographing. We had a blast capturing fun images throughout the day; it was never hard to keep it light and fun! On top of that, the speeches made during the reception told stories of fun times, hard challenges, and love between the couple and their friends and family. This is a very caring group of people and I was blessed to be a part of this celebration.
I always love the opportunity to shoot in the Shenandoah valley, or anywhere in such a lush natural setting. It's always my goal to highlight the setting and tell the story from start to finish. Enjoy the highlights and the photo story below!
