Congratulations, Ashley and John || Grace Estates Vineyard || Elegant & Romantic || Navy, Wine & Gold || Fall 2017 || Crozet, Virginia

If you should ever leave me
Well life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I’d be without you



Ashley and John,


When you, Ashley, said “You go first” to John, the whole mountain felt your incredible love for each other.   And that hug, at your first look, the way you both just melted into each other. That magic between the two of you was so touchable. With John’s dad as your officiant, everyone was already feeling emotion and, in that minute, everyone teared up right along with you, Ashley!

And you were both the picture of elegance, both so graceful & lovely, from Ashley’s amazing beaded dress to John’s perfectly pressed dress uniform. We were all so sure it would rain but then it was dry all day! Just enough mist at the end of the night to make it challenging to light sparklers!

Your colors brought perfection to the setting with the wine gowns bringing a touch of color to the fall afternoon.

I know you are going to have a beautiful life together, probably taking turns, sometimes leading and sometimes following but always blazing new trails together. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both! It was an honor to be part of your wedding day and an honor to witness the love you have, not only just for each other, but for all your friends and family.
