Allison + Darin | Crosskeys Vineyard Wedding Photographer
What a great day this was! Despite the pretty cold temperatures, Allison and Darin’s wedding day was absolutely wonderful!
We arrived on this gorgeous day to the venue Allison and Darin chose for their wedding. This was my first time at Crosskeys Vineyard in Mt. Crawford, Virginia. It was a grand estate nestled right in the Blue Ridge mountains. The views were breathtaking!
Allison was finishing up her hair when I arrived. Rachel Vicari from A Cut to Dye For was on site to work her magic! The ladies had their makeup done earlier at Tangles Day Spa. The ladies looked stunning and Allison was glowing!
Allison’s dress was designed by Maggie Sottero and she found this beauty at Bridal and Formal Inc. in Cincinnati, Ohio. This dress was absolutely perfect for Allsion and she looked amazing! The rest of the ladies got heir dresses from David’s Bridal. Everyone was ravishing.
The guys looked stellar as well! All of the boys got their attire from Joseph A. Banks. They looked pretty dapper!
The ceremony was just gorgeous. It was on the back patio of Crosskeys Vineyard’s Manor and overlooked the vineyards and Blue Ridge Mountains. I don’t think I have ever had the privilege of photographing a more gorgeous spot for a ceremony! Seriously! If you haven’t been there you should go!
Once Allison and Darin were married it was time for portraits. We made it quick as it was getting pretty cold, pretty fast! They were troupers though and braved the temperatures to get some awesome portraits!
After the portraits the duo quickly made their way inside to defrost and begin the party with their friends and family. The reception was an absolute blast from beginning to end. This group partied all night long! There was great music, awesome food, and lots and lots of dancing!
Here are more of the details! It is important to note all of the vendors that made this wedding day the perfect day that it was!
The flowers: Flowers by Rose
The DJ: Epic Sounds Entertainment
The Food: Crosskeys Vineyard
The Cupcakes: Cakes by Cathy Stewart
The Invitations: Cards and Pockets (Allison printed them herself!)
Allison and Darin’s wedding was an absolute pleasure to be a part of! From beginning to end I loved every minute! After the wedding the couple went off to Costa Rica for their honeymoon! A great day followed by an awesome vacation! What a way to start the rest of their lives together!
Okay! Enough from me! I know you want to see more photos from this awesome day!
