I am beyond excited to share this wedding today!! It’s literally taken me all morning to choose which images to post, as I’m completely in love with this wedding and couple! Trishia + Justin are such an amazing couple…literally…they are sooo smitten with each other and incredibly cute, it just melts my heart! Enough cheese…but seriously though we love capturing those sweet moments between our couples…from the smiles, giggles and tears…it’s such a joy to witness! You may remember their sweet engagement session last Fall (you know the one with the row boat?), after shooting that session, we just couldn’t wait for their wedding! Trishia + Justin chose to have their wedding at the Nature Camp outside of Lexington, VA. Trishia had grown up going to this camp and it was absolutely the ideal spot for their rustic wedding. They incorporated so many woodland elements, from the flowers to the little forest animals scattered throughout their wedding. They even had a wedding logo that symbolized them…two racoons, one with glasses, the other with a bow (Trishia + Justin to a tee!). The logo was incorporated everywhere and it completely summed up their wedding. Enjoy this incredible couple and their amazing DIY details!

Loved Trishia’s bouquet from Susan of Flower Fields. Susan grows all of her own flowers herself!
Trishia you’re gorgeous!!
In lieu of a unity symbol, they opted to do something a little bit different. They instead had a wooden box made and filled it with a bottle of whiskeyand two love letters. The box is supposed to symbolize their love when it was at its peak and whenever they go through a rough patch with their marriage, they can open the box, drink the whiskey and read the love letters they wrote to each other and reflect on why they fell in love. The hope is that they never have to open the box, which is why they had their closest family and friends help seal the box during the ceremony.
Trishia made this curtain of flowers herself using recycled soda bottles…how AMAZING is this?! I want this hanging in my home!
Each guest received a hand-embroidered tea towel with their wedding logo made by Trishia! LOVE them!
They also picked up these cute woodland creatures from Anthropologie to display their table numbers
Trishia made those quilt squares for the centerpieces
Their food was served family styleWe did this with our wedding and we loved the close community of everyone!
again…amazing soda bottle flowers…
Though Trishia + Justin served strawberry shortcake, they still wanted a cake topper. Trishia’s mother made their cake topper and completely reflected them on their wedding day
