I was not sure the end of Winter would ever arrive this year. Although hardly a trace of snow fell, the temps lingered in the low 40’s through much of early Spring. However, we were blessed with a small miracle on Kristine and Jim’s wedding day as it warmed up into the mid 70’s.
Stone Tower Winery might be the best location for a wedding in Loudoun County. They offer the original tasting room/ barn, and a new modern facility. We were located in the old barn which exudes charm. The warm temps allowed Stone Tower to open all of the barn doors as a delightful breeze blew through all evening.
After a charming ceremony upstairs in the barn we relocated to the old wine cellar for some family portraits and beautiful photographs of Kristine and Jim. We caught a spectacular sunset at the end just before they were introduced for their grand entrance. They had been rehearsing a first dance number for weeks and it worked perfectly. They had multiple music changes as well as props. I am not sure who had more fun, the crowd or Kristine, and Jim.
The reception feature a gelato stand, which was a big hit, and of course the wine flowed all night. The evening ended with the happy couple walking through a tunnel of sparklers to a waiting car.
It was a great night to be a Stone Tower Wedding Photographer.
