Marin & Max || Shenadoah Mountain Barn Wedding


The mountains, color scheme, flowers, the hint of fall on the air, all of it made for the most beautiful wedding day for Marin and Max.

These two met at Franciscan University through mutual friends and graduated this past spring. They love their families and friends fiercely and wanted their wedding to be special and fun for all their guests. Marin is the oldest of eight kids (just like me!) and her youngest siblings are still very young and they were the flower girls and ring bearers and, on my goodness, they were the cutest things. It was so beautiful to see how much Marin wanted all her siblings to be involved in her wedding day from the beginning to the end.

Their wedding ceremony took place at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Front Royal, VA and it was a truly heavenly Nuptial Mass. Just wait until you scroll down to the pictures of Max when Marin started walking down the aisle. 😭😍 

After their bubble exit from the church, we headed to a family friend’s farm where their open air barn held the reception. The very fluid indoor/outdoor space meant that there were endless possibilities for their guests and kids to enjoy the outdoors during the cocktail hour and reception. And of course, how could you not want to be outside with the glorious mountains behind you? Marin and Max had specially engraved corn hole boards made, an outdoor bar, lawn games for the kids and a snack table for the kiddos complete with endless ring pops and glowsticks which were definitely the highlight of the night for the little ones. 😂

We ended the night with an epic champagne tower and photos under their personalized neon sign which were such a fun way to end their wedding day!

Marin and Max, it was a JOY to serve you both on your wedding and I hope you love scrolling through this blog post and reliving your beautiful wedding!
