Rustic Colorful Barn Ceremony

13 Nov

Riverside on the Potomac is one of our favorite Loudon County Wedding Venues and I had the honor of planning Laurie and Cliffs 2013 fall wedding in the newly remodeled barn. They wanted to focus their attention on the food and dancing for the evening, and keep the decor low key, home spun, and colorful with wildflowers and bright fabric streamers as backdrops! I was thrilled to have their wedding featured in the Fall 2014 Knot Magazine, and now I can share all their amazing photos with you as well!! Unfortunately their wedding day was shadowed by rain during the ceremony, so we moved them into the Long Stable Gallery for the ceremony with guests standing around their Chuppah. Fortunately the rain was sporadic enough to get great outdoor shots during their first look!
