Classic meets casual elegance for Erin and Daniel’s vineyard wedding in Virginia and, let me tell you, it is simply stunning. When you have a crafty couple inspired by the colors and warmth of autumn, you know it’s going to be a good one, folks! Think rich hues of cranberry and an outdoor wedding with an incredible view all beautifully captured by Cynthia Shipp Photography! I love, love, love that they had a Celtic hand fasting ceremony, too! Stop by later this morning for the second half of their rustic affair!
From Erin: When we first started dating, we both enjoyed wine tasting and exploring different vineyards in the Northern Virginia Area. It seemed kismet when we looked at Bluemont Vineyard after getting engaged and the only date they had available in October was the day that we met three years prior, October 4. We loved the view and the rustic appeal of the remodeled barn with beautiful overlook of Loudon County. We knew we wanted a rustic, vintage feel, yet still elegant and timeless. We chose a selection of neutral tones (beige, cream, and sage) with a pop of wine to add warmth and depth.
Our favorite memory of the wedding was a rather large one – our ceremony! Our ceremony was written with our reverend (who is also my aunt!). Every aspect and word choice was a deliberate representation of our love and the life and bond we are creating.
