This was my first time going to Mountain Ridge Venue located in Rustburg, VA and from what I understand, it’s fairly new. It’s only a few minutes from Lynchburg, but it feels like you are on top of the world with the mountain ridge view (hence the name). When you drive up to the venue, you’ll see the designated ceremony area with a large square pergola and the rustic, but newly built, barn for the reception. The bridal room is so spacious…there is plenty of room for everyone to move around and get ready. The reception area is a beautiful space…it’s rustic, but not too rustic…and the chandelier is incredible. I love the designated area outside for the ceremonies, which is a large pergola facing the mountain ridge…wonder where they got the name. 🙂
Ahhhh were they easy to photograph. It’s easy to say all of the couples I photograph are in love as it’s their wedding day, so it’s certainly going to look like that. These two are obviously in love, but they are also very playful and comfortable with each other, so they had us laughing most of the day. They chose deep reds and oranges with touches of greenery for their decor and the wedding party wore the same colors. It was a welcoming sign that fall was just around the corner.
Thank you so much to Heather Kidd Photography for letting me second shoot to document their wedding day! Please check out my other weddings on the blog: https://clarkstreetphotography.com/blog/
