I am not about this 85+ degree weather … in APRIL. We had to turn our A/C on and my run this morning was SO HUMID. No thanks. At least it looks like Saturday will be gorgeous for our outdoor wedding (!!!). Little flashes of normalcy are giving me some life as we continue to sift through the “languishing” portion of this pandemic. Happy Thursday Romancers.

Pre-pandemic, our wedding was tentatively planned for coastal California in early November 2020, and we had wanted to have only our close relatives at the ceremony. However, since things with the pandemic worsened, we decided that it would be most responsible to have a quiet, intimate wedding with just the two of us, and share pictures and a video of the ceremony with our loved ones. 

We have both fallen in love with the Shenandoah Valley since moving to the mid-Atlantic region summer of 2019. When we made up our minds that we wanted to elope, we tried to find somewhere close to Shenandoah, and Vista Vows turned out to be a great fit.

We could not have asked for a better day; blue skies with puffy clouds, amazing views of the valley below, and right in the midst of a forest of trees. We are both passionate about nature, so it really was the most wonderful setting. The whole day was magical, but thinking of driving to the Vista Vows location while we were still engaged, and then the drive home to the greater DC area when we had become a married couple, was really special. Luray, VA, and the surrounding areas are absolutely breathtaking, and made for a great start and finish to our day.
