VIRGINIA WEDDING VENUES

Weddings at Old House Vineyards in Culpepper, Virginia

Old House Vineyards in Culpepper, Virginia is a 75 acre winery that host weddings for up to 200 guest! The outdoor ceremony space is on a man made island accessible by a dock leading out from the vineyards. The processional from the vines and across the dock is so beautiful and picture perfect. Old House Vineyards was voted best Virginia winery for weddings in 2012 by Virginia WineLover magazine. The reception is held in the outdoor tented area next to the vines and lake. I have captured multiple weddings at Old House Vineyards and am always excited to return for more!

Weddings at Celebrations at The Bay in Pasadena, Maryland

Celebrations on The Bay is a wedding & event venue located in Pasadena, Maryland right along The Chesapeake Bay. I have captured several amazing weddings at this venue and each one is different! The venue has an amazing view of The Chesapeake Bay and the dock makes for a great spot for portraits as well as the gazebo, grass, and trees around. Each wedding is different as there are multiple setups available as far as tented reception or indoor reception. You can also have your ceremony on the deck on on the grassy area, both which overlook The Bay. Celebrations at The Bay is always a pleasure to work at and I have enjoyed all the photos I have captured there! Getting married at Celebrations on The Bay? I would love to chat with you about your wedding day!
