Laid-back Vineyard Party

Couple Celebrates Marriage at Laid-back Vineyard Party in Charlottesville

It was such an honor to be asked to photograph this gorgeous, intimate reception.  Josh and Laura eloped at Lake Tahoe last July but invited their family and friends to bless and celebrate their marriage at a laid-back vineyard party in October.

The day started at The Inn at Stinson Vineyards in Crozet, VA, not far from where Laura’s father lives in Charlottesville.  The couple and their wedding party enjoyed some quality time together while getting ready. Then they headed outside for portraits in the vineyard.  The surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains made for a stunning backdrop!

On the way to the reception, we stopped at a little old convenience store for a fun wedding party shot.  I love that this couple wanted the focus to be on casual, candid moments but this was a fun image to capture as well!

The reception took place at the cozy Meriwether Springs Vineyard & Brewery in Charlottesville, VA. Laura’s mother passed away last year. However, she included her in their special day with a beautiful tribute photo in her bouquet. Everyone gathered for a sweet blessing ceremony and then the couple celebrated into the evening surrounded by loved ones.
