Ashton Creek Vineyard Wedding Photos with Over the Top Florals
An Ashton Creek Vineyard wedding was the only option for Danielle and Taylor! The Virginia wedding venue holds a special place in the couple’s hearts. Not only do their best friends’ family own the venue, but it’s also where Taylor proposed!
Danielle shared that Taylor started dating when they were only 17 years old. And when it came time for Taylor to propose, he went all out! Danielle shared that Taylor’s proposal was ‘seriously to die for.’
His mother owns Over The Top Flower Shop and she had created a large, beautiful flower arch. (The couple asked for a recreation of this for their wedding day!) Taylor led Danielle out to the vineyard where there was a perfectly staged picnic scene more beautiful and lavish than something you may have seen on an episode of the Bachelor!!!
So when it was time for this sweet couple’s special day, of course the flowers were, well. . . over the top!
Ashton Creek Vineyard Wedding on a Rainy Day in Spring
The forecast on Danielle and Taylor’s day just kept getting wetter. The couple made the decision to move their planned outdoor ceremony indoors. Thankfully, there were so many flowers inside, it felt like they brought a bit of the outside in! The day started off a little overcast and the rain held off for a bit, but when it did started raining, it just poured buckets! It rained so hard, we began to wonder how we’d even get the wedding party over to the ceremony site!
We moved their First Look into the production room where the wines are made and aged. The couple and their friends never let the downpours dampen their joy!
There was a break in the rain almost immediately after their ceremony, and I was grateful that it allowed us to head outdoors for wedding party pictures, family formals and couple portraits.
The dance floor stayed so packed that a little dance floor annex suddenly appeared on the other side of the reception hall! Guests of all ages had a great time dancing the night away! The couple also played the Newlywed game, holding shoes over their heads to designate their answers to questions emceed by the DJ.
The day was filled with laughter and, of course, a few tears over toasts, shared sentiments and well-wishes.
Congratulations and Best Wishes to Danielle and Taylor! It was an absolute honor to be there to photograph your Ashton Creek Vineyard Wedding day!
