Melrose Cavern's Lodge Wedding in Harrisonburg, VA || Chase & Courtney

As we are all hunkering down expecting the winds and rains from Hurricane Florence to begin, here, in Central Virginia, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous wedding that somehow dodged the rain so Courtney could have the outdoor ceremony that she had been dreaming about!

Chase & Courtney’s wedding day began with a downpour, and we were certain the entire thing would be moved inside- even the amazing wedding planner moved the reception tables and set up the chairs for the ceremony. About 10 or 15 minutes before it was scheduled to start, the rain stopped and everything cleared up. Courtney decided to go for it, and oh my goodness, I am so glad she did as it didn’t rain for the rest of the evening!

The grounds at Melrose Cavern Lodge in Harrisonburg, Virginia were beyond gorgeous! It felt like we were at a wedding in a Disney Movie! Tucked away, surrounded by glowy lights and greenery with the most gorgeous arbor. I cannot wait to return!

On Sunny Slope Farm Wedding in Harrisonburg, VA || Cj & Danielle

Oh guys! This wedding is so gorgeous!! I am so excited to be sharing today!! Cj and Danielle got married at On Sunny Slope Farm in Harrisonburg, Virginia on Saturday! They were so lucky with the most amazing April weather, warm, sunny and in the 70's! Especially considering that it snowed in Central Virginia just 5 days before! 

I first met Danielle last year when I was visiting one of my old brides, turned friend, in Florida. Dani was her son's nanny and I was SO excited when she called and told me she had gotten engaged just a few months after my visit! We did their engagement photos out in the Harrisonburg area & I quickly fell in love with DJ & Dani as a couple! 

Our Associate Shooters, Rhiannon & Heather did such an amazing job! I loved going through all their images and seeing Cj & Dani's wedding- it really was almost like I was there! From seeing the excitement of the getting ready room, the anticipation of the first look, the joy of the ceremony, and the celebration during the reception! Dani made the most stunning bride- and wait until you see these sunset portraits! Oh my goodness! 

Congratulations CJ & Danielle! We are all so excited for you guys! Enjoy your honeymoon so so much! I cannot wait to hear how it goes!!
