Elope and Get Married at a Scenic Venue in Virginia

Elope and Get Married at a Scenic Venue in Virginia

Many couples don’t want the frills and expenses of big weddings, so they decide to elope or have a very small wedding. However they also do not want to be married in the lobby of a courthouse, and want something a little more scenic to make it special.

For that reason couples contact me to marry them in an elopement or small wedding ceremony with photographs at a scenic venue nearby (see my top venue recommendations here). One of the most popular choices is the State Arboretum / Blandy Farm located only 20 short minutes from downtown Winchester, VA. The staff at Blandy are kind enough to let me conduct small weddings there with 10 guests or less. As long as the couple abides by some requested guidelines, Blandy is FREE to use for your elopement or small wedding.

Matthew and Alyssa found Blandy Farm to fit their needs perfectly. While it called for a chance of rain on their wedding day (we all brought along umbrellas just in case), luck was on their side as it barely drizzled while we were there. Still, since we had brought along the umbrellas anyway, I was sure to work them into a couple of the photograph poses.

Looking for a lovely scenic venue for your elopement? Contact me today and let me help you get married in Virginia with ease!
