A special elopement / intimate wedding package offered to couples looking for a private ceremony in the quiet woods.
The Woodland Package is a special option I offer to couples looking for guaranteed privacy for their elopement ceremony held at my private 17-acre residence in Cross Junction, VA (only 20 minutes north of Winchester). My property is easily accessible from a major highway and features a large yard with a rustic farm fence and white archway as a setting for your wedding, plus tons of options for scenic photos including wooded locations, a mountain view, and a traditional red horse barn (with two horses!)…all of which are great choices for those looking to get married away from public view in a quiet outdoor setting. It is also home to my nonprofit organization, Piggins and Banks Pig and Animal Sanctuary, which provides a forever loving home to abandoned, abused, and neglected pigs.
Please note this is an OUTDOOR ONLY venue with no indoor access or restroom facilities.
I was so excited when I found Aaron and what he offered because this was not easy to find in Richmond. We took a chance and drove 3 hours and it was well worth it!! From the start of the process, Aaron was organized, informative and patient when answering my questions. My husband and I eloped in September and it was absolutely PERFECT. Aaron was super nice, his property was beautiful! All around a great experience. I’d say if your looking to elope go to Aaron and get the Woodland Package (private elopement) I highly recommend!
Aaron Riddle was amazing! Very professional, passionate, patient and talented! We were wanting a small intimate ceremony and he delivered exceptional service. Very organized, great with communication and kind. Pictures turned out amazing. He deserves more than 5 stars!
My husband and I were browsing around online for wedding ideas when we came across Aarons website. We knew we wanted something small but I still wanted to feel like a bride. When we saw the Woodland package, we were sold! When I contacted Aaron for more information, he was so responsive and helpful. We were able to get our wedding scheduled on the date we wanted. We added extra pictures to our package and the chance to meet his pigs and we were so glad that we did. Our pictures turned out AMAZING! The whole experience was perfect. I wouldn’t change one thing about our big day, we had a blast!
Aaron went above and beyond. We opted for the woodland package with extended photoshoot and we were beyond thrilled at how easy the process was. He was so kind and professional the whole time. The area was absolutely beautiful. I was originally so stressed about the day, but the second we stepped out on the property, it all washed away. I will forever recommend him to everyone looking to elope or have a private ceremony. 10/10!
Aaron was absolutely wonderful and made everything so relaxed and easy. We had so much fun, and wouldn’t change a thing. It was very cool to meet Mr. Banks (one of his pet pigs)! The photographs turned out lovely, and we are so, so grateful for everything.
I could not be happier. My husband and I decided on a weekend wedding at Aaron’s home followed by a 20 minute photography session. We were both blown away of how beautiful and intimate the service was (just how I envisioned). What I appreciated the most was the vow exchanging. We decided to write our own vows and Aaron didn’t put a time or word limit. He allowed us to be in our moment. His pictures… BEAUTIFUL!!! He’s professional and personable and responsive. For those who live a little further away thinking about the drive… DON’T! His services are well worth it and speaks for itself. Look no further…please consider. Thank you again Aaron, for capturing our special moment!
