John + Marisa | A Stone Tower Winery Wedding | VA Wedding Photographer

Weddings

May 30, 2014

The day really could not have been more beautiful and perfect. The weather at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg was gorgeous as we prepared for a cozy yet gorgeous vineyard wedding. When I met Marisa and John, I knew that their wedding was going to be gorgeous and relaxed and they certainly did not disappoint. They made me feel so welcome, like I was part of the family. We truly had a great time.

I was so excited to photograph at Stone Tower Winery as this was one of their first weddings. Everything was perfect down to the last detail. John and Marisa made such a great choice of venue and saw their vision through.

We were greeted by gorgeous blue skies and these great hand painted signs.  Just one reason why I love being a VA wedding photographer!

The venue has a great cottage where the bride and bridesmaids can get ready. It was such a great spot.

I loved seeing Marisa’s father see her for the first time. His expression was priceless.

Marisa made her final preparations and opened a beautiful gift from John. It was a matching sapphire pendant to match her gorgeous engagement ring.
