Erika and Zach’s wedding was beyond gorgeous. Yes it was on the edge of the incredible New River Gorge, yes the venue was jaw-dropping, and yes, the room was drenched in flowers, but the most beautiful moment was when Erika’s dad walked her down the aisle and you saw both she and Zach taking deep, somewhat nervous, breaths, knowing that they were diving into a life long commitment. This couple was in-it-to-win-it, you could tell they didn’t take their vows lightly! The ceremony was deep and meaningful- focused squarely on God. And when they had become husband and wife, they had the BIGGEST smiles. I couldn’t help but tear up!

The pair and their friends and family rejoiced in the union and danced into the night, lead by a bluegrass band that was on fire! It was such a joy to be celebrate with this new family and I can’t thank Maryn Graves enough for bringing me along to second shoot! I had a great time with you and your lovely couple!
