Ethereal Amethyst Styled Shoot | Museum of the Shenandoah Valley | Megan Weckter Photography

Portraits

March 10, 2020

One of my favorite hidden gems in our area is the Glen Burnie Gardens at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV). Surrounded by seven acres of formal gardens, the museum’s Glen Burnie House dates to 1794 and is a Georgian-style brick house listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The formal landscape includes parterre, knot, Asian, rose, statue, and spring gardens. Stone walkways, a tea house, water features, natural limestone outcroppings, and a formal Pink Pavilion with a fountain courtyard make this one of the Shenandoah Valley’s most unique and elegant outdoor spaces.

Because it is one of my favorite places in the entire Shenandoah Valley, I knew it would be the perfect location for a romantic and whimsical styled elopement shoot. Accented with subtle amethyst and blush tones, the shoot included fresh florals, gold accents, custom-made watercolor stationery, and decadent chocolates. The color palette focused around spring-like colors perfect for creating an enchanting look.
