Meghan and Dan had a Springfield Manor Winery Wedding near DC, and it. was. beautiful! As you know, this one of my favorite venues to shoot. It has mountains, beautiful sunsets, a lush forest in the background, and wine. It’s a little bit rustic and a little bit city chic. Check out how you can style this venue either way! Springfield Manor Winery and Distillery is just north of Frederick in Thurmont, Maryland. The Catoctin Mountains are RIGHT THERE!
When I met with Meghan and Dan, they were this super cool couple that I clicked with. Meghan said, “I knew you were our photographer when you said, ‘I can act like a bitch and get people where I need them to be without people thinking I’m a bitch.'” SOLD! <3 I love when a couple’s style and life philosophy mesh well with mine. The bridesmaids were hilarious, the dudes drank whiskey, and everyone danced the night away in the barn-style venue on the Manor grounds. Perfection.
Meghan and Dan chose a first look, and it was beautiful. Those first moments seeing each other before the wedding are intimate. By doing a first look, you get to let out your emotions in a personal setting without an audience. All my couples who have chosen a first look have raved about it. The bonus is that we finished their portraits before the ceremony and they headed straight to their cocktail hour. Of course, we went back out for a few more pictures at sunset.
Shandi Wallace shot with me and capture this gorgeous image. Thanks, Shandi! Hope you’re loving your new home in SC. 🙂
Everyone had a few moments to catch their breath, then it was ceremony time.
Like ninjas, we ducked out for a few sunset photos…
…and then continued the night with lots of dancing!
