Khimaira Farms in Luray, VA will always hold a special place in my heart. In fact, my first blog post on this blog (from 2008) was a single image from Martha and Daryl’s wedding at Khimaira Farms, one of the first years that the farm was hosting weddings. Since then, I’ve had at least one wedding at the farm every year. This year, Paul and Emily’s wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. I spent the morning hopping back and forth between Paul and Emily, documenting their getting ready process. Emily was staying at an awesome airbnb and Paul was getting ready at the historic Mimslyn Inn.
We met back at the farm for seperate bridal party and groomsmen photos just before their intimate ceremony, followed by a casual stroll around Khimaira’s gorgeous property for some awesome portraits. After their first dance, and a delicious dinner from Pizzeria Moto (one of my favorite caterers), Paul and Emily snuck back out to capture a few more portraits during the golden hour, which is always truly special in Luray. With that done, you know the drill…we partied into the night.
Many thanks to all the awesome vendors who made the event possible:
