2017 Has been gorgeous…

This super hot week has us craving cooler weather, but we can’t move into the fall without a recap of some of our favorite spring and summer moments!

This season ushered in so many beautiful weddings it’s hard to narrow down a handful to post. From the stunning bouquets to the gorgeous gowns and the ceremony sites dripping with flowers, we are continually blown away by the creativity and passion for weddings that each vendor brings through our doors. It is a complete joy to serve so many couples marrying in Loudoun County from rustic designs to classic, each week the barn is transformed into a reflection of our couples and their creative visions.

So what did this spring and summer season look like for Shadow Creek? What first comes to mind is the completion of our landscaping! We added sliding glass doors to our front portico during the winter, and spring/summer allowed for the completion of flower beds and our front walkway. We have been so excited to welcome many new followers to our Instagram account @shadowcreekweddings and had the opportunity to host many amazing vendors at the Loudoun Weddings Tour open house. We continue to be grateful to the amazing photographers who capture all of the creativity of each talented vendor and are immensely thrilled with the additional publications that shared our venue and the work of some of our favorite “friendors.” In addition to weddings, we have been enjoying sharing more about the farm we live on. Shadow Creek is named after the creek that runs through our property and we love sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses of life with horses, baby cows, and ducks.

Loudoun County is truly a remarkable place to live and work.  We feel blessed to call this home and love sharing it with everyone who comes through our doors. So with that, a few highlights from some fabulous moments this spring. If you were married here, or worked on an event hosted here and have a favorite moment, PLEASE send it to us, we would be happy to add it!
