David and Hanser's intimate ceremony was held on a Tuesday evening at sunset in the popular Shenandoah National Park along Skyline Drive. The wedding date itself, October 17th, held a special meaning as that is when David's late parents were married. As the sun was setting, Virginia, the officiant, celebrated their love and commitment to one another.

Here's an excerpt from their ultra sweet hand-written vows: "Thank you for taking care of me. Thank you for loving me and promising to spend your life with me. I am forever grateful for the love you give me every day."

Just wait until you check out their snazzy blue suits (not too matchy, though!), the bow ties, and the most gorgeous golden hour ever.
