Corey + Melissa

A Rustic Shenandoah Mountain Wedding | Luray, Virginia
luray mountain wedding

Stunning….

that’s the word that I would describe Corey and Melissa’s ENTIRE wedding day.  It was just amazing. The scenery, the timeline, the portraits, the LIGHT!! AH! This was my last wedding for the 2012 wedding season. I have another one coming up in late December but Corey and Melissa ended the non-stop shooting spree that has lasted from April 14th until this past weekend. WOW. You would think that after 30+ weddings, we would be a little exhausted and burned out… but God has been really faithful in that area of my life this year. The closer I have gotten to the end of wedding season, the more inspired I feel. Maybe it’s because I know that the end is in sight… or maybe it’s because I have AMAZING

clients that just inspire me to do my VERY best.  Corey and Melissa are an incredible pair and when you see them together, you can just tell that this is it…. they found “The One” and no one doubts that. I lived with Melissa in college and I remember hearing about this guy that she had met while working the ropes course at Young Life camp one summer.  We heard his name come up more and more and before we knew it… they were official!! Corey and Melissa have been long distance for so long and as you watched them on their wedding day, you can tell that they’re SO ready to share life together!! They’re best friends and who likes having to say goodbye to their best friend?!! No one! Well lucky for them, they never have to anymore!! … And that’s amazing!! Corey and Melissa, Michael and I just love you guys and we couldn’t be more excited for you and this next phase of life! It was such a huge honor to be the ones capturing your day!!
