This is a long one folks! It was hard to pick favorites among so many gorgeous details, the beautiful property, and the this sweet couple. Sarah and I actually grew up together – we met in middle school during those awkward stages where everyone has knobby knees and braces. We shared a passion for horseback riding – which Sarah still does competitively and rocks it out! – and have just kept in touch ever since. Their wedding was a hometown reunion at its best.
The setting couldn’t have been more perfect for Sarah and Cory’s personalities; a charming countryside B&B situated right in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The historical house dates back to the 1700’s, and the grounds are complete with a beautiful barn, gardens, and plenty of stellar views. It rained off and on throughout much of the day, but halfway though the ceremony the sun peeked through the clouds and the birds chirped a love song. It was perfection.
Their dinner took place in a large tent beside the rustic barn. The long farmhouse tables were adorned with lush greenery, flowers of a simple color palette, and horseshoes (of course!). Inside the barn hung crystal chandeliers accompanied by several swanky lounge areas and cocktail tables. Local Virginia wine and beer were served alongside large grilled salmon, roasted vegetables and delicious BBQ. The band “Just the Tip” out of New York City really rocked the dance floor (this was my second wedding with these guys and they’re REALLLLYYY good) all night.
Sarah’s family is near and dear to my heart, and it was an absolute pleasure to be chosen to capture their day. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful couple or setting. Thank you to the Zichi and Fritz families for everything. Sarah and Cory, I wish you all the best! xo
