An Autumn Wedding in West Virginia
From the bride, Danielle: In the beginning planning stages, I fell in love with so many different styles. A few times during the early (and middle) stages of planning, I committed to styles I thought I wanted, mainly due to others influences. None of these styles “felt” right though and around the halfway mark, I finally decided to go back to the drawing board and go with my gut and chose a color palette of goldenrod, ecru and grey.
I wanted to do something different with my flowers. Silk flowers were an obvious no and real flowers are gone in a few days and I wanted my flowers to last longer. I thought the Sola flowers were simply perfect and the Craspedia gave my wedding the modern edge I was looking for. What’s really cool is that I still have my bouquet and Josh’s boutonniere today. They’re in the same condition as the day we wed.
Our dog, Bingo (a Chihuahua-Chinese Crested mix) was such a handsome boy in his bowtie and, while slightly neurotic during the ceremony, he was a shining star during the family photos!
Our ceremony took place outside on the upper deck at Adventures on the Gorge. We had an amazing view of the New River from the mountaintop.
I searched for hours to find quotes that would define our relationship and the love we have for one another. I wanted depth and real meaning. Not just a few fluffy words in a frame.
Looking back, truth be told, I would’ve eloped; on a remote island; Fiji perhaps.
