Pink Wedding at Swift Level Farm in Lewisburg, West Virginia
Jessica + PJ
This past summer, Jessica and PJ tied the knot at Swift Level Farm in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
“We met at West Virginia University and hit it off immediately, not spending a day apart after our first date. Everything was just so EASY! I totally agree with the saying now, “Once you know, you know.” Our proposal story is pretty funny, too. PJ had a flight booked, the day before he proposed, to fly from Morgantown to Charleston, South Carolina. He received the ring that he had custom-made the day before the scheduled flight, the flight was then CANCELLED in APRIL because of snow! This very determined man then drove 10 hours down to Charleston just to see me that weekend and make sure the proposal still happened as he planned! When he popped the question, it was everything I dreamed of and more!”
Swift Level Farm holds a special place in their hearts as the property has ties to Jess’ family! It is a stunning, historic building and farm overlooking mountains and a nearby horse farm. We started the day off with capturing Jess and her bridesmaids at a nearby AirBnB in downtown Lewisburg – which is extremely charming, by the way! PJ was not too far away with his groomsmen at The Greenbrier Resort in Sulphur Springs, WV. Jess and the girls, PJ and the boys, and us headed to Swift Level after getting ready so Jess and PJ were able to share a first look before the day kicked into high gear!
I love, love, loved their wedding day! These two are the absolute sweetest! Jess and I share a love for all of the pretty pink details, peony-filled bouquets, and surrounding ourselves with our loved ones! They brought along their beautiful golden retriever, Lilly, to participate as a “flower girl,” and it was the cutest thing ever! Jess made Lilly’s floral and greenery leash herself, too!
We had such a blast earlier this year during their engagement photos in Leesburg, VA at the beautiful Oatlands Plantation and Gardens! Jess and I clicked instantly when we found each other on Instagram, and I have so enjoyed getting to know them better! It has been such an honor to be a part of such an incredibly special time in their lives and to capture their priceless memories!
