Jen + Shane: A Summer wedding in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains

I have been waiting for months to share Jen & Shane's Pippin Hill wedding with you and since it was featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday (HOORAY!), I can finally do that. I remember their wedding day vividly...there was a 98% chance of rain but as many of us may know, nailing down Virginia Summer rain forecasts is next to impossible. Needless to say, we were taking photos outside when all of my weather apps said that it was down pouring and it was sunny. Ha!

Jen & Shane are two people who you wished lived next door to you just so you could hang out and have a beer with. Plus, they have two bulldogs and a chocolate lab...there's nothing better in life than pups (which they named their three signature cocktails after). They met at the University of Virginia on their first day of law school several years ago. Having their wedding in Charlottesville was important to them since that is where they spent their entire relationship and wanted to remember this special place before they moved shortly after to Ohio. According to Easton Events, the rose gold & copper accents throughout the day were a nod to Jen's family's Colorado background. Additional design elements included cow-hide rugs, reclaimed wood, succulents, lush woodland florals, and blue+ grey tones which mimicked the Rocky Mountains.

The best possible thing you can do to ensure that you receive beautiful photos is relaxing, enjoying yourselves, and trusting in me. I'm really proud of these photos and wish that we could do the day all over again so that I could take more & more. Naz's highlight film is at the end so be sure to watch the day unfold in Super 8.   I hope you love these photos as much as I loved being a part of their day! xoxoKatie
