Lauren + Travis have been engaged for about 18 months, and are part of the large number of couples that have been faced with the difficult decision of what kind of wedding to plan during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have a large number of family members that do not live in the area, and were pretty on the fence about planning a big event, just to have to turn around and cancel it. When she reached out to me a few months ago and let me know that they decided on an intimate elopement - just the two of them - I was so excited and happy for them! I find it super sweet that the just want to be married to each other, and put such a focus on that, rather than the event. Lauren had a friend come along to help her get ready, but for the ceremony itself, it was the officiant, myself, and the happy couple only! I hope that they look back on their wedding for years to come and remember how special it was for them to pledge their lives to each other in such an intimate setting.

Lauren + Travis chose to be married at the Historic Rosemont Manor in Berryville, Virginia. Rosemont is a beautiful estate, dating back to 1811 with over 60 acres of beautiful scenery. Lauren + Travis's wedding day happened to be very overcast, with some drizzle, which gave everything such an ethereal feel. I love that early spring gave us some greenery and blooms to work with, and was so pleased with how their wedding portraits turned out! Here are just a few of my favorites from their beautiful elopment:
