Chapin and Cody had a beautiful Harvest House Wedding in Leesburg, Virginia. Because he was overseas for the majority of the wedding planning process, Cody always kept the big picture in mind. The most important thing to her was that he came home safe and sound. She knew that everything else would work out just fine.
“To be honest, I was more excited to see him step off that plane than I was to walk down the aisle.”
The Engagement Story
“Three weeks before a 10-month deployment, we went on our last little getaway in the Smoky Mountains to hike (one of our absolute favorite things to do). As we hiked along the TN/NC border, we climbed six miles in several inches of snow. He proposed at the summit and it was perfect! Even better, we had to wait to call our family until we got cell signal again two miles back down the mountain.”
The Wedding Dress
“The Blue Ridge is my favorite place in the world and when a Brides Across America event was just 2.5 hours away from me at AGB, I knew it was meant to be! Even though I didn’t end up with a BAA dress, I did find almost an exact replica of what I had pictured all along and it turned out perfect! The store was so beautiful, the staff was amazing, and the quality of service was impeccable. When I drove back to pick up my dress, I brought my puppy (who I picked the day I dropped my fiancé off to leave NC) and we hiked the Peaks of Otter together for the rest of the weekend. It was so nice!”
Special Moments from Their Harvest House Wedding
“I sang our first dance song (pre-recorded a Capella, only the DJ and I knew so it was a total surprise to everyone!). Also, my garter was a Remove Before Flight tab that he wore while overseas. Moreover, we both wrote our own vows and had very similar themes (like rodeo!), and we released 10 doves to represent the 10 years we had been together.
How special is that?! We love Chapin & Cody’s Harvest House Wedding in Leesburg, Virginia and can’t wait to see where life takes them next.
