Quaint Williamsburg Winery Wedding
Quaint Wedding at the Williamsburg Winery:
Vicky & Marty had their intimate destination wedding at Wedmore Place at the Williamsburg Winery. This cute couple traveled from New Jersey for their wedding day. Their entire wedding party and guests consisted of their children, the wedding officiant and wedding photographer (me)! I love small weddings and elopements, especially when they still go all out on the wedding venue and attire. The beautiful dresses and tuxedos were the perfect touch!
We started the day off with all the girls getting ready in one of the hotel suites located on property. I was able to get a few detail and getting ready shots before we headed to the ceremony site for a first look. I made Marty wait to turn around until Vicky was able to get right next to him. I then gave him the ok and he turned around to see his bride for the first time. After an emotional embrace, we continued with the wedding ceremony. They exchanged their vows in the romantic courtyard at Wedmore Place, the backdrop of this location is beautiful with the brick walls and antique rustic doors! After their “I do’s” they had their first dances as husband and wife, followed by mother/son and father/daughter dances too. They even shared a family champagne toast (apple cider for the kids) and cake cutting before we headed into formal portrait time. Vicky & Marty wanted their family formals behind Wedmore place with all the beautiful greenery. We were able to finish our portrait session outside before it started to rain. We then drove over to the main building of the Williamsburg Winery to take a few bride and groom formals in the wine cellar. We couldn’t wrap up our wedding day without a few James Bond 007 photos too!
By the end of our short time together, I really felt as part of the family and was kind of sad to say goodbye knowing I may not ever see them again. We all hugged goodbye and they promised to call me if they ever come back down to Virginia. I certainly hope they do! A big congrats to Vicky & Marty and thank you for choosing me to be part of this beautiful day! 🙂
