Intimate Fall Elopement Inspiration at Devil’s Backbone

Hannah Joy Photography

I do so love a good elopement! Especially when they take place at venues as unique as Devil’s Backbone Distilling Co! In a rich fall color palette of coffee, gold and mustard yellow, with splashes of orange, this intimate wedding celebration certainly ticks all the right romance boxes. From an outdoor ceremony, to a cost lounge and the most delightful table set for two, you’re in for a treat! So, pull up a seat and get comfy as this post transports you to the breathtaking mountains of Virginia…..

Here are a few words from photographer Hannah Joy….. “This was a collective vision led by the uber-talented Sara Kite at the Faded Poppy. All of the vendors live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and we wanted to create a shoot that embodied the spirit of the mountains.

As a nod to the planning team at Faded Poppy (half of whom are from England!) we added a few British-inspired elements, such as the vintage sport jacket and the scones as the couple’s dessert.

This whole shoot is full of golden and brown tones, unique details, and a focus on love and beer. Above all, we had so much fun working together and capturing a truly in-love couple!”


Isn’t it gorgeous?? A huge thankyou to the wonderful creative team, but especially to Hannah Joy Photography who captured it all so perfectly.
