Mountain Run Winery Wedding | Culpeper, VA | Tansy and Tom

Tansy and Tom’s amazing Mountain Run Winery wedding is here! They had a beautiful September day in Culpeper, and they got married at a venue that is extra special to them. They are good friends with the owners!

Tom and Tansy met while rock climbing (and we went climbing for their engagement photos!) and they made sure to tie their favorite hobby into their big day as much as possible. You’ll see their unique ideas throughout the day!

I don’t know if I’ve had another couple that makes each other laugh as much as Tansy and Tom do. Their whole day was so much fun and there were nonstop silly faces, cracking each other up! And they had a wedding party that completely matched their personalities and sense of humor - hilarity at every turn.

Here’s the first nod to their rock climbing love - rings designed with knots, balanced on some climbing gear!

This is Shmoose, Tansy and Tom’s moose that travels everywhere with them! They take photos of her on all their climbing adventures, so of course she was tagging along for the wedding day too. You’ll catch Shmoose at the ceremony as well!

“Can you guys all crowd around Tansy so I can get a picture of you helping her get ready?”

Ok these are more what I had in mind haha.

I think more wedding couples should follow suit with Tom and Tansy’s ridiculous faces. Makes for way more interesting photos haha!

Mountain Run Winery’s signature giant oak tree came down recently, but the remains are still there! And they are perfect for climbing on.

More rock climbing things! Tansy’s bouquet had rope tied around it, and we had another bouquet made completely out of climbing gear.

They ended the night with a lavender exit, and they will probably smell like lavender forever and ever.
