Heather and Jonathan bonded over their mutual love of hiking, cycling and the great outdoors. It was only fitting that, two and half years into their relationship, Jon proposed to Heather during one of their weekend excursions to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. At mile 57 of a 65-mile bike ride, Jon pulled over into a soybean field, retrieved a ring from his jersey and popped the question. Heather and Jon planned a classy and romantic spring wedding at the rustic Inn at Mount Vernon Farm in Sperryville, Virginia. Although their plans for an outdoor ceremony were washed away by the rain, Heather and Jon had a beautiful and intimate ceremony indoors with readings of excerpts from their favorite literary works, a ceremonial glass breaking and a reenactment of their email correspondences. The breathtaking barn reception was illuminated by beautiful bistro lighting and candelabra chandeliers. “We wanted the floral arrangements and the table settings to feel natural and earthy,” says Heather. Heather and Jon’s stunning wedding is truly one for the books.
