INN AT WESTWOOD FARM WEDDING, ORANGE VA: MATT + HEATHER

If I could photograph only farm weddings from now until eternity, I'd have a life of bliss! The beauty of nature, the adorable animals, and the golden sunlight keep me swooning! Matt and Heather hosted their wedding at the Inn at Westwood Farm in Orange, VA. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect day! Plus, it was a super fun reunion for Chris and I! We both used to work with the bride Heather and her bridesmaid Kerri at CAMP-of-the-WOODS in the Adirondack mountains of NY! Kerri and I were actually pen-pals for a long time and then roomies for a couple years. I loved getting to celebrate with them all day, and witness the love between Heather and her new husband Matt. I couldn't imagine a more perfect partner in crime for Heather!

Matt and his groomsmen spent the morning at the Inn on Poplar Hill, which had the perfect southern front porch!

Matt and Heather chose to plant a tree to symbolize their unity. Like a tree, a marriage must have strong roots and resilience against all weather and storms. You can read more about it here!
