When I arrived at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, VA for Maddy and Alex’s wedding day and saw the stunning views of the vineyard, I immediately knew this was going to be something special. Don’t get me wrong, as a Washington, DC wedding photographer, white stone and structured buildings are some of my favorite things to photograph! But having been married at a winery myself – Potomac Point, in Stafford, VA – they always hold a soft spot in my heart! The view at Stone Tower was like any other; it was definitely more reminiscent of Napa Valley than anything else I had seen in Virginia! This sweet couple had told me they visited several different venues in the area but after seeing this spot, nothing else compared!
The morning of their big day, Maddy was surrounded by her nine bridesmaids who represented all aspects of her life; from her childhood friend and sister all the way to her college roommates and new sister-in-laws, she clearly valued and fostered her relationships throughout the years. The same was definitely true for Alex, who had the support of seven groomsmen as he prepared for the forthcoming nuptials to take place. And when Alex’s eyes locked into Maddy’s as she made her way down the aisle, it was obvious that a new unbreakable bond was being formed between two lovers who were about to be made man and wife.
Alex and Maddy, I hope you know how lucky I feel to have been part of your family for the day! I bet you’re having an amazing honeymoon in St. Thomas (that water!) and I plan to live vicariously through your pictures for the next week :)
A huge thank you to these vendors for making Maddy & Alex’s wedding amazing! And to Emily Marie Photography for being an awesome second shooter!
