Panhandle WV Vintage Elegance Vow Renewal at Historic Mansion Estate

After I was recently married I heard a news report of a man who had been married 50 times! Whoa...what?! Digging further he made this claim as he and his wife had renewed their vows every year for the past 50 years of their marriage. Ahhhh. I fell in love with that thought. I personally believe that every couple should take time to renew their Vows. Doing so is a reminder why you fell in love, why you are faithful to one another, and your oath to God.

VIDEO - "Fall in Love" with these Past NOVA Fall Weddings

I just adore fall. It is literally my favorite time of year and now that I live in the Appalachian Valley of PA & Shenandoah Valley I love fall even more. The stunning trees in their magnificent colors. So many amazing fall festivals at local farm and wineries. I am so blessed. This is a quick video of some of our best past NOVA real Fall Wedding Couples. Enjoy!


Vintage Farmhouse Barn Wedding, Lizz & Shaun, Khimaira Farm Luray VA

I am so excited to share with you the photos of our 2014 Ultimate Love Story Winners, Lizz & Shaun. Myself and TaylorMade Weddings have been working with Lizz & Shaun for over 16 months to help them design and plan their Vintage Farmhouse Barn Wedding at Khimiara Farm in Luray VA. Even though the weather was not ideal and the ceremony would need to be held in doors, I couldn't be more please with the results.

Sarah & Micheal: Southern Elegance Outdoor Memorial Day Wedding

My cousin tied the knot this past Memorial Day holiday weekend. The blue skies made the perfect backdrop for this summer outdoor wedding with Southern Elegance flair. I was happy I could be apart of her special day.

Seaside Love in Purple

I love getting pictures from clients. It's the crowning jewel on my job! You have to agree you can see the love and how much fun they are having in their pictures.

Brian & Kathryn

 Happy Anniversary Brian & Kathryn who were married a year ago on June 12, 2012. I was so excited to work with Kathryn. She was looking for something different (which I just love). Her colors were dark jewel tones, even in the summer. We worked together to pull the deep purple, rich royal blue, and garnet reds together, while she wanted an all cream bouquet for herself.

Pete & Stephanie

I had such a fun time helping Pete & Stephanie with their bright, cherry, and slightly tropical wedding flowers. Both, the Bride & the Groom, are long time friends of the family, and I was thrilled to be asked to help out with some of the floral decor.

Debbie & Mike


This wedding is a fall affair with loads of personalized accents. Debbie and Mike were married on Nov 17, 2011. A perfect autumn day in the Chicagoland area. Debbie and Mike knew from the start that they wanted a full fall theme with harvest bounty accents.  

Leah & Ryan


Dianne & John

Dianne and John shared their vows on the warm beaches of Ocean City MD. She chose a palette of sweet cream, soft blue, with pops of tangerine. Starfish and shells were a must, to add texture and whimsy to the design.
