A Classic Country Club Wedding | Wytheville, VA

  • Aaron + Meredith

We pulled into the quaint little town of Wytheville, Va and it was just as charming as everyone said it would be. The mom and pop shops lined the streets of downtown and the mountains were in the distance. It’s a gorgeous place to live! Michael and I have family friends that are really close to our hearts and they live in the area so we stayed with them the night before the wedding. We loved seeing how everyone interacted with one another because it reminded us of our hometown. Everyone knows everybody… everyone wanted to be a part of the day… and everyone was overjoyed to see these two tie the knot! Someone even said in passing “This is a BIG day for Wytheville!” How cute is that?! It was a big day… and it was a BEAUTIFUL day! The temperature outside felt like Fall and I loved it!!
