My fiance Ian and I decided to run away to get married. We did quite a bit of searching online for that place that would still make our day special and our dreams come true. Let's me just say our dreams were Exceeded! We called Mike and Sally. Sally was very helpful in giving us information on where we could find the courthouse to get our license. She allowed me to pick our wedding colors. We decided to come down Tuesday night and stay in Luray, and then moved over to White Fence Wednesday. Mike and Sally were very welcoming. I got to meet their little dog Daisy also and was greeted with kisses. We settled into our gorgeous cottage. Don't let the outside appearance trick you. It's very spacious inside and amazingly decorated. Has even the littlest touches to make it homey. We settle in. Ian went out to the gazebo to wait on me. Sally came in and zipped me up. She shot some cute photos even then. Sally has quite the excellent photographic eye. Our pictures were amazing! Mike made the ceremony special and it felt personal instead of something generic you'd get eloping some where else. We took lots of pictures after the ceremony as well. We had an excellent night trying out all the amenities of the cottage. The sheets were so soft and when we did finally sleep it was a very restful. We chose to have the breakfast basket delivered to us in the morning so we could have a lazy breakfast in bed. Even for a simpler breakfast since it wasn't in the main house it was delicious. I'm still craving those croissants.
All in all Mike and Sally made our wedding and our first night as husband and wife more than I ever had dreamed of, and so much more than I ever could have asked for.
We will definitely be coming back for our anniversary next year. Our wedding photos are up on White Fence's website. Look for MacDonald if you'd like to view our special day.
