*FEATURED WEDDING- Shepherdstown WVA historic Inn fairy tale wedding*
This was a really exceptional wedding filled with timeless beauty! We traveled to the Bavarian Inn, which is nestled in the mountains of Shepherdstown WVA. This historic Inn (and its "oh so cool" infinity pool) overlooks the Potomic river. This venue was chosen because of its European style and beautiful country setting.
I wish I could share with you the full gallery of this romantic day, but instead, I will share highlights of the day!
This Bride and Groom were so easygoing which added to the lovely feel of the wedding day. Their true and beautiful emotion made my job as a memory keeper/photographer very easy! They found interesting ways to incorporate their theme very elegantly. The chosen venue in beautiful West Virginia complemented their Grimm's fairy tale German theme. Henk of Triple T entertainment kept the party hopping late into the night. It was a perfect day to remember and cherish always, and their wedding images beautifully reflected the love that was present that day!

Once upon a time....
This Inn's entrance pathway was very inviting, I knew immediately that this was going to be a stunning wedding.
The bride stayed in the quarters in the main building. It was such a cozy space to prepare for this beautiful day.
There is just something about brides shoes.....
Their rings were enclosed in a Lord of the Rings book that was made by a friend of the bride and groom...
This was such a fun group of guys!!!!
I have a thing for socks..... I find that other people do too!
I love how these turned out, this crew was just so nice to work with!
The bride was stunning!
I simply LOVE this next image. This was a natural moment and I could not have planned it better. This is the brides last few moments before she'd walk down that isle and call her love her husband. I can see the butterflies in her stomach as her friends discussed the groomsmen taking their places.
The grooms reaction to his bride was priceless, the emotion at this wedding was so special, I could tell right away that this was a forever couple.
The wedding party was attentive and happy as they watched their friends tie the knot! And that ring boy.... seriously, can he get any cuter?
"You may kiss your bride!!!"
Their first moments together as husband and wife!!!!
These college friends shared their love for their alma mater!
This photo and the bridal preperation photos were taken by my fabulous secondshooter, Brittney Hare.
What a great looking bunch of people!!!
Here I had the bride whisper in her HUSBANDS ear her favorite moment of their ceremony, it must have been a great one, because look at those smiles! LOVE!
This was one of my favorites, it screams "Carrie Wren Photography"!
Brittney and I found this couch upon arrival to the venue. We knew right away we were going to visit it later in the evening.
Story books were used as table markers to tie in their Grimm's Fairy tale theme.
The cake was fabulous, topped with real roses, it really matched the personality of the wedding.
Guests watched as the bride and groom danced to their first song.
These next few images speak for themselves.... look at all that love!!!
Guests were all so happy and genuine. This was an exceptional crowd!
The party was bumping late into the night and kept alive with the help of Henk from Triple T entertainment!
They were busting out the moves! This celebration of love is one to remember!
And they lived happily ever after....
Now that we have seen their story, Lets work on telling YOUR love story! --Contact me today for all your Gettysburg area Photographer needs!
