Skyla + Codie | Ripley, West Virginia Wedding

We arrived at Skyla’s friend Liz’s gorgeous home as the girls were getting ready. Although it was drizzling, we were all hopeful the rain would stop. Despite the weather, the girls were all in the best spirits! After grabbing some detail shots, the girls braved the rain for some fun outdoor shots.  What you don’t see is that I’m standing under an umbrella shooting these because it is pouring and this tiny porch was the only dry spot!! But these girls were so joyful and fun and up for anything!  Then we snuck across the street to the cutest old white church for some bridal portraits and I am SO glad we did!! Skyla is so naturally photogenic, and her friends were so helpful with her train and kept her covered with an umbrella in between shots.   While I was getting to know the girls, Will grabbed a few shots with the guys!  Then it was time for the ceremony. The rain had not slowed down at all when we arrived at the beautiful spot on their family land where Skyla’s parents also got married. Thankfully we came prepared with a ton of our cute clear umbrellas! All of these signs and so many details were made by Skyla. She was so creative and worked so hard to make her wedding vision come true.  And they’re married!! This bridal party was so much fun!  We had to get a few portraits on this little dock (even though it was super slippery) because this was the spot where Codie first told Skyla he loved her. So sweet!    It finally stopped raining during portraits!!!!        Love this floral ring!!   Sweet sorority sisters sang their DZ song!  This whole group was in my Zumba class I taught at Concord and it was so great hanging out with them!  Congratulations, Skyla + Codie! We love y’all and wish you all the best!!
