Briana and Andrew were married on a sunny autumn day at Vine Hill House, surrounded by vineyards with the last of the season’s grapes still hanging on the vines. The couple was absolutely beautiful, as were their friends and family. And the wedding was beautiful, too. Beauty was definitely the word of the day for this amazing celebration.

Both Briana and Andrew put a great deal of thought into how to express not only their love for one another, but also their love for others. They each prepared special gifts for their parents, bridesmaids, and groomsmen, recognizing the special place that each of them had in their hearts.

I arrived on site at midday, so we had plentiful time in the afternoon to get great shots in the vineyards, along the treelined driveway and inside the Victorian house that is part of the Vine Hill House experience. It was definitely worthwhile – the drone shots are spectacular, the lighting was beautiful, and the sweeping vistas offered a vast background in which to frame the love and joy of this beautiful couple.
