Virginia is full of beauty … landscapes, rivers and mountains … this wedding showcases them all. Liz and Mitch used a private, family home as their venue, and it could not be more perfect. With impeccable details including bikes and mason jars, this wedding has a rustic, outdoor feel that is both elegant and casual. Here is what wedding coordinator, Amanda Gray of Ashley Baber Weddings had to say about this special day:
The wedding took place on July 14 2012 at a family home in Pembroke, VA. The views from the ceremony site were so amazing, a perfect location for a Virginia wedding.
The whole day threatened rain. Just as Liz was walking down the aisle, there was a huge crack of thunder and umbrellas went up during the ceremony. After the ceremony, Liz and Mitch went with their photographer down into town, near the river for their portraits. I always recommend couples steal 30-45 minutes for themselves with their photographer, during the day. I believe this really gives them a chance to reflect on what’s happening on a day full of so many distractions.
The rain certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of the bride and groom or their guests, they had a blast visiting and dancing into the night!
Here is a peek into their amazing day … I hope you enjoy them as I did. There were so many to choose from that I could hardly narrow down which photos to use. Enjoy, and congratulations Liz and Mitch!
