Dara and I have been friends for years, and when she told me she was engaged and wanted me to shoot her wedding, I was thrilled to say the least. They were married in the little town of Philippi in West Virginia, and it was the essence of a DIY wedding. The ceremony was out front of the home she grew up in and reception was out back. It was hard to not feel like you were part of something truly special. I’ve also included a few photos from John Ryan Creative Photography but be sure to see them all on his blog by clicking here.
