Virginia is for lovers…


Did I ever think I would be going to a goat farm in Virginia for a wedding? No. When a bunch of your friends start moving to DC, this totally becomes a possibility. An awesome possibility. When a bunch of Ehren and Julie’s friends fly in from all over the country (and Switzerland!) a lot of eating, drinking, dancing, laughing, and hat wearing is going to happen. We spent the weekend in Luray, which is a country town in the Shenandoah Valley, full of historic buildings and home of the Luray Caverns.

There were lots of murals in town to pose with…

The wedding was at the beautiful Khimaira Farm. They had a farm kitty who likes to party…

There were porch swings and home brew– made by the bride and groom and named after their dog… so cute!

Just for fun, they encouraged hats at the wedding and many were happy to oblige.

There were fancy hats…

What’s a wedding without a chili cook-off winner?

Of course there was a miner’s helmet, this town is home to amazing caves!

We were even lucky enough to catch sunset on our flights to and from DC!

P.S. If you live in Arizona, humidity is weird. Especially when it’s not even hot. Like you unpack your suitcase and realize your clothes aren’t totally dry. Very weird.

    I love your little hat! Did you use a pattern for that? I would love a tutorial. It would make a great hat for Melbourne Cup.

    That’s so crazy that you were in Luray. VA this weekend! The caverns were a big hit when I was younger and I’ve always wanted to go back since it’s been…oh say 15 years since I went last?

    But I’m glad you enjoyed the weekend in VA – the country is beautiful! And thanks for checking out Rikki’s Refuge…they are such an amazing group and I can’t wait to raise a lot of money for them :)


  6. You look adorable! And if that’s your man? He’s his own brand of adorable. What a fun wedding! You guys look great – and happy.

    As a Virginian, I couldn’t help but laugh at your humidity comment. I’ve lived here my whole life and still haven’t gotten used to it! Styling your hair in the summer is a lost cause. :)

    I’m really enjoying your blog! Keep on keepin’ on!
