Some of the details showcased for the style shoot included, not only the individual charcuterie boards at each place setting. Whisked Sugar Bake Shoppe creating two one-of-a-kind designs for the cakes for the style shoot. One was a beautiful wedding cake. The other was a very detailed Red Riding Hood Theme cake. Tiers of Heaven, not only baked a basket of goodies for “Grandmother” as favors, but owner, Jennifer Frey even created a howling wolf created entirely from sugar in the center of the large basket of chocolate chip cookies.
The bride and groom models are real life couple Maddie Mackintosh and David Betz, who originally met while in high school but later reconnected at a Bluegrass music festival during their college summer break. They are planning their own wedding for the fall. David had asked Maddie to marry him by taking her to a waterfall along the Shenandoah River that they visit every year. It was the location of one of their first dates. As they were standing at the top of what they call “the falls” Maddie asked David if he was ready to jump in, meaning literally to jump into the water beneath the falls. When she turned around to hear his answer, he was on one knee! After Maddie said, “Yes!” They did jump in together! Maddie said she likes to think of their proposal as “the big jump” as it is the beginning of the rest of their lives together. Maddie wore a strapless Adore by Justin Alexander gown provided by The Valley Bride. The Valley Bride also provided the burgundy hooded cape. David wore a classic black tuxedo from True Elegance Bridal & Formal Boutique.
We invited three different photographers to the style shoot, each of them giving a little different perspective to what we were trying to achieve. This album was created by Images by Madison, LLC.
