Bluestone Vineyard Wedding – Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer



Bluestone Vineyards

Wow, Bridgewater, VA, you totally impressed me on my first visit! The views of the Blue Ridge mountains, the vineyards, and the windy roads were reminiscent of one of my favorite Virginia towns – Charlottesville. You’ve got some healthy competition now, Charlottesville! Bluestone Vineyards has incredibly well-kept vines with a perfect view of the Blue Ridge mountains and a beautiful reception facing the views all with lots of light. Also, small note, I’m a sucker for stone work on the exterior and interior of buildings and Bluestone has some!!

Remember Lauren and Nathan from their Norfolk Botanical Gardens Engagement Session? Well these photos from their wedding are just as sweet as their engagement session!  These two are probably the kindest, most selfless people I have ever met in my life. They are Wyldlife leaders (yay, Young Life couple!) and have the biggest heart for middle school students. Every single toast mentioned their hearts for middle school students and it couldn’t be more evident in how they live their lives, even on their wedding day. All the details they put together in their wedding and timeline exuded their love for Christ. He truly was the center of that day. Their wedding was the kind of wedding where I just wanted to cheer all day, “you’re married! I’m so happy for you!!” I can totally picture Jesus right next to me saying the same thing 🙂

Congratulations you two! I hope you have the best honeymoon, I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store!
