Caleb + Maddie Wedding | Shadow Creek, Purcellville, VA

Caleb and Maddie's wedding celebration took place at the beautiful Shadow Creek Wedding and Events in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Shadow Creek Wedding Blue and Green

Maddie and Caleb's wedding celebration featured colors of sage green and navy blue, accented with white florals and greenery. On a windy November afternoon, these two celebrated their union on Shadow Creek's outdoor patio, surrounded by their loved ones. This celebration was technically a vow renewal since (you might remember) they had their March 2021 Wedding Ceremony in Pittsburgh, PA. We got to spend two days with these two, and I would spend so many more with them and their crew!

If I had to use one word for Maddie and Caleb and their wedding day it would be "love". As Father Matthew put it, these two pour so much into the people and things they love. They have lived their lives loving God, their families, their friends, and each other. It's something so special about the two of them, and something I noticed after first meeting them in college.

Now, let's talk a little about their wedding day! Before heading over to Shadow Creek, Maddie and Caleb got ready at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, Virginia. There, the girls got hair and makeup done while the guys enjoyed the Penn State vs. Michigan football game.

Girls get robe pics on the bed, and guys get goldfish pictures on the balcony! Catherine and Evan had a great time with these guys!

Once we got to Shadow Creek, Maddie was helped into her dress by her mother and Maid of Honor, Lindsay. We LOVED Shadow Creek's bridal room!

Maddie is a beautiful bride inside and out! I truly believe that it's impossible for her to take a bad picture.

After a first look with her girls, we were off to her first look with Caleb!

These two are ADORABLE. I was so happy they had video coverage at their wedding. These pictures are so telling, but wait until you hear the joy and love in their voices during moments like the first look.

In the unpredictable November weather, these two and their wedding party toughed out the crazy winds blowing during this part of the day! Eventually, we headed into Shadow Creek's front portico to finish up portraits In a warmer space!

STUNNERS! This bridal party could be in a magazine!

Thankfully, the sun began peeking through the clouds and the winds calmed down right in time for the ceremony!

Their ceremony was held right outside of the barn, and was decorated in a beautiful archway of flowers. These archway florals were later used as a part of their reception floral design!

Maddie and Caleb's ceremony was officiated by everyone's favorite PSU Priest, Father Matthew Laffey! Their friendship with Fr. Matt in addition to their written vows made for a personal and meaningful ceremony.

After renewing their vows in front of their loved ones, we were off to a quick sunset session!


The elegant reception hall was decorated in floral arrangements and lights that hung from the ceiling. Tables were covered in white linens and decorated with dusty blue and white arrangements and candles.

As the sun set over Shadow Creek, the reception kicked off, and these two got celebration that they deserved.

A good husband drinks the Smirnoff Ice with you, but a great husband drinks it for you!
