Cristina and Chris were married last year on a clear, sunny summer day with the Blue Ridge Mountains as the backdrop to their vows. Whenever I met with these two, they seemed to always be talking about their amazing community of friends and that really informed a lot of our decisions about the day. We made sure Cristina had ample time on site at the truly stunning Blenheim Vineyards to hang with her girlfriends and get ready without feeling rushed. We kept the guest list pretty intimate and had just under 100 guests so it felt more like a gathering of close family. The cocktail hour was a roaming party of passed hors d'oeuvres inspired by their favorite local flavors that allowed guests to wander in the back gardens overlooking the vineyards. Once everyone made it to the tent, they were treated to a stationed dinner that encouraged guests to get up from their tables to mix and mingle. As the night progressed and the sun began to set (and boy, did we get an incredible sunset!), the DJ turned up the tunes and everyone (literally, everyone! this crowd could dance) packed the dancefloor. I loved this sweet wedding and what it represented for Cristina and Chris.
