Whitney & Matt | Peaks of Otter, Bedford, Virginia
Whitney and Matt had the most beautiful intimate wedding day! The two of them got married at the gorgeous Cloverlea Farms in Bedford, Virginia...where the flowers are blooming, the fields are wide, and the rolling hills give a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains! I am so excited to be sharing all of the pretty with you on the blog today! :)
"Matt and I were introduced by mutual friends!" Whitney told me. "We had 2 or 3 non-dates to start with, and Matt would often give me rides home. One time Matt had ridden his bike and hadn't brought his car - so he walked me home instead! The only problem was that it was raining...so we had to huddle together under an umbrella the whole way :)
"It took awhile for us to start officially dating each other but being together has brought so much peace and happiness to our lives!
"On our first official date, we made chicken alfredo together at Matt's house. We had wine but Matt didn't own any wine glasses, so we had to walked to the store to buy some. We got to talk to each other a lot that night and it was amazing how natural it felt to just be together and talk about anything and everything.
"As time went on, we began to talk about getting married - and knew it was going to happen one day! We had just had a beautiful, low-key day together when Matt proposed. It was one of the first warm days of spring, I had opened the back door to the house and was sitting on the floor in the warm sunlight that was coming in. I was sublimely happy and content and that's the moment that he picked to ask me to marry him. Of course I said YES! :)"
"Matt and I really enjoy going for walks together, and just generally playing outside! Matt makes great desserts and also makes lattes at home.... so a big part of enjoying our time together is eating good food and drinking hot beverages together! (He makes amazing lemon squares.)
"We are just so thankful for each other, and are so excited about the future! We would love to have a house set a little ways out of town, and maybe near a pond! We want a place we can raise a couple of kids, and Matt wants a machine shop, haha.
But no matter where we are, we will have each other...and that's the most important thing! <3 We can't wait to start our lives together! :)"
Oh Whitney and Matt, it was such an honor to share in your day with you! From the moment you held hands around the door, until you ran through the fields and just shared your joy with each other - it was such a special day from beginning to end. Thank you for choosing me as your photographer, and I wish you two the best in the world! :)
