I am so excited to share photos from Jim and Erin’s beautiful Melrose Caverns July wedding!  Jim and Erin met at one of my favorite Harrisonburg restaurants, Ruby’s Lounge.  After that night, the rest is history!  A big theme surrounding Jim and Erin’s day was family.  I felt so honored to witness the love each of these families has for one another.  Between the speeches and advice during the ceremony and Erin’s family dancing during their family song I definitely had tears behind the camera.  I also appreciated how relaxed the day seemed.  The forecast scared us all but we got so lucky to have no rain and a beautiful sunset!  Jim and Erin opted not to have a bridal party and instead surrounded themselves with friends while they were getting ready and at the reception…and man could these friends party!  Jim and Erin- thanks for trusting me and having me along to be apart of your special day.  I hope you had an amazing time in Norway, enjoy your pictures! **Big kudos to the vendor team these two put together, links to all of their websites at the bottom of the post!  I’m off to start packing my bags for a wedding tomorrow, so excited!
