An Intimate Wedding in Culpeper, Virginia | Janice and Tom

Intimate Culpeper, Virginia Wedding | Backyard wedding

I had so much fun capturing Janice and Tom's laid-back, morning wedding. They knew that they wanted to keep things simple, so they decided to rock some custom bride and groom t-shirts instead of the traditional wedding attire. And rather than renting a venue, Tom's niece Megan and her husband Dave offered to host the event at their beautiful home in Culpeper. It was the perfect space for their ceremony and after party, and their backyard had an awesome spot for taking bride and groom photos. It was a fun day filled with playtime for the kids, delicious food from Chic-Fil-A, and some good old-fashioned cake smashing!
