Eloping in Winchester, VA from WV – Charles and Karen

Eloping in Winchester, VA from WV – Charles and Karen

Many couples come to Virginia from West Virginia because of how easy it is to get married. In Virginia there is no blood test, no waiting period, and all you need is $30 and your official IDs (driver’s license for example), and you can get your marriage license the same day. That’s exactly what Charles and Karen did. They came to town from their home in West Virginia for a quick early morning marriage in the local park with some photographs. Turns out Charles is a professor at the college I graduated from in Baltimore, MD (UMBC). Small world!

“Aaron Riddle is simply amazing. We wanted a quiet, simple, quick and beautiful wedding, and Aaron provided just that. He suggested Jim Barnett Park as a location, and it was beyond perfect. We hoped for at least one good photo of our day, and have so many amazing shots that now we can’t decide which one we love the most. Professional and a pleasure all the way around. Thanks so much for everything! Would recommend to everyone we know!” – Karen S.
