Alex and I grew up in the same mountainous region of Maryland near Deep Creek Lake. He was in the theatre circuits and I had my nose in a science textbook, so we never really crossed paths until I received a message from his fiancée. Chelsey explained their love story, their goal of a WV bohemian wedding, and how hard they both work to provide a loving home for their daughter. It wasn’t just the story, but also the way she told it in great detail, that drew me to these two. They were planning an intimate, boho affair with close family and friends in the mountains of WV near their home.
When I arrived at their little hut at Grand Vue Park near Wheeling, WV, I could feel both the anxious excitement. Chelsey dreamed of this day and wanted it to be perfect. Let’s just say we ran into a time crunch and the weight of the all planning to this point pushed down on her. Alex lifted her up with love and it was the most beautiful display of a what a true partnership is. From the heartfelt details at the reception to the love-infused vows to the tears shared by Alex, Chelsey and all of their guests, the focus of their wedding was precisely where it should be – on one another.
Thank you, Alex and Chelsey! It was an extreme honor to capture this day and all the details and emotions that made this authentically YOUR day.
We were a touch pressed on time but we created space for Chelsey and Alex’s first look! Love these moments.
A cozy reception with a roaring fire and their nearest and dearest was the perfect way to celebrate their union. The pavilion is nestled near the top of the mountain with gorgeous views of the city below.
