I've decided that golden hour at Cross Keys Vineyard is one of the best around!! You can see the blue mountains perfectly which is what brought Mariellyn and Carl all the way from Florida to get married here! Their wedding day finally felt like fall but it was still warm enough to be outdoors all day and just enjoy the weather and share in the love these two have for each other. They were surrounded by beautiful colors, flowers, and so many people that love them.
If you follow me on Instagram you'll also remember that Mariellyn and Carl buried a bottle of bourbon which they dug up on their wedding day to share with friends, such a fun southern tradition and wedding day celebration.
Here are a few sneak peaks to hold them over before they leave for their tropical honeymoon tomorrow!! I hope you two enjoy lots of bourbon this week!!
Special thanks to my second shooter Hannah Adams whose photos will be shared on the final blog post so you'll get to see more of the guys! And to the following vendors
