Micro weddings & elopements are trending.
Wedding days dreams are made at Bluemont Vineyard. Celebrating the next chapter of your love story, mountain top with the gorgeous views of lovely Loudoun County and views as far East as Washington DC is pretty incredible. But that atmosphere just sets the scene for Jess & Michael’s wedding day.
I met Jess over a year before her wedding. We instantly clicked as we enjoyed a cup of coffee and chatted about the plans for the big day and her love for sunflowers and her pup who was of course ring bearer. From this very first meeting I knew that Jess (Michael) & I were going to have a great experience together for their August Bluemont Vineyard wedding.
After the months of planning and meetings to talk over the timeline, the ideas, (more coffee) and all the photo opportunities, it was finally time for the wedding.
Bluemont Vineyard is just gorgeous in August. As I arrived all the other vendors were busy transforming an already lovely venue into Jess’s Mint green and sunflower filled dream. We had a wonderful team of wedding pros! And I could wait to see our beautiful bride.
When I met Jess in the bridal suite, her and the her ladies were giggly, full of excitement and smiles. Photographing them was easy and such a joy. Just spending the entire day with them all was amazing. They were honestly such a great group of girls. Jess is so lucky to have had so many amazing friends by her side as she said I DO to Michael.
When my awesome second shooter Eric, and the guys arrived at Bluemont Vineyard I knew that the guys were having just as much fun and this entire day was going to be amazing.
If you haven’t been to a ceremony at Bluemont Vineyard, you should cross your fingers that you get invited to one soon. Or maybe plan your own!! Anyways, the ceremony was beautiful and filled with so many traditions from both the bride & grooms side of the family.
Throughout the entire night there were traditions and sweet moments incorporated from loved ones of the bride and groom. And once the reception started inside the stables at Bluemont Vineyard the party was hopping’ all night with a quick break for some delicious cake.
The night ended with the most beautiful sparkler exit out the front of the stable. I you look close at the photos you might even see Jess’ cute mint sneakers, that went perfectly with the day.
I am so excited to share Jess & Michael’s amazing Sumer sunflower wedding with you all. It was the highlight of my August and a bright shining spot in my heart. These two are incredible people and I am so happy to be a part of their lives and love story.
Congrats again you two!
