Shadow Creek Wedding in Purcellville, Virginia with Navy and Ivory Details | Virginia Wedding Photographer
Jen + Justin
Jen and Justin tied the knot this summer in Purcellville, Virginia. It was so exciting to finally have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at Shadow Creek, and it could have not been for a sweeter couple! This adorable couple met in college six years ago and got engaged in 2015, where Justin proposed to Jen while they were at the always gorgeous Bluemont Vineyard with their families. Their wedding day was such a beautiful one, and I had so much fun celebrating with them and their loved ones – some who traveled from very far away to be there, including England, Gibraltar, and all over the U.S. Earlier in the year, I hung out with them in Harpers Ferry, WV for their engagement session. We had a blast walking around this little, historic town that I currently live in, and I loved getting to know them a bit better.
When Jen and I were talking about her wedding and what they had begun to plan for the special day, she described it as English Garden meets Southern Plantation. Jen has lots of family members from England, and Shadow Creek is located in the heart of the country of Northern Virginia. They incorporated beautiful, lush florals and garden elements into their decor, and I absolutely loved that they had a popcorn bar, as well as s’mores available for some late night treats for guests! Jen made an absolutely stunning bride, and Justin had the biggest smile on his face all day long. It was such a joy to celebrate with them and their loved ones!
