Taylor and Joseph's big day at Blue Hill Farm was one I had been looking forward to all year!! What a way to end the wedding season for me. Taylor has AMAZING taste (I could tell just by following along via social media leading up to her wedding day!), so I knew it wasn't going to disappoint. The weather was PERFECT all day - not a drop of rain, and perfect cloud cover for the ceremony so we got beautiful lighting all day long. As soon as Taylor and Joseph inquired last year, I looked up Blue Hill Farm and immediately fan-girl'd! How had I not heard of this venue yet?! I'm SO glad I know of it now, and hope to shoot there many more times!! It is absolutely stunning, and the venue owners, Waldo and Shirley, are truly incredible. I lost my voice photographing a wedding from the day before, and Shirely was SO sweet to us all day long, constantly making sure we had everything we needed. She even gave me a golf-cart ride back up to the barn when I went to park my car down the hill - love her so much!! The caterers and event planner, Erin (Every Last Detail) went above and beyond to make sure we were fed quickly so a moment didn't go undocumented! I absolutely adored the sweet ladies who worked for Food 4 Thought Catering. I hope to work with them for MANY more weddings - they were SO accommodating and sweet all day long. It truly makes such an incredible difference when you work with the sweetest and most caring vendors possible to make the sweetest couple's dreams come true!! I am so happy for you, Taylor & Joseph, and I cannot WAIT for you to see the rest of your wedding images!! :)

A BIG thank you to all of the incredible vendors who made their day a dream come true!

"We were looking for unique and tasty food for our wedding reception and what we got was incredibly scrumptious food that everyone raved about and a caterer that had an amazing staff that everyone loved. We could not recommend Dale and her staff enough. She was amazing at taking what we were looking for and putting fun and tasty twists on each item for the menu. She was very prompt in her communication. She was amazing from hello to Congrats! You will not go wrong with #Food4ThoughtCatering."

Thank you Shannon & Leslie! We enjoyed being a part of your special day!

We are deeply honored to be included at #18 of the Best Wedding Venues in Virginia along with so many truly iconic venues across this beautiful state. In 2017, Venue Report put Blue Hill Farm B&B & Wedding Venue at #11 out of their top 80 new wedding venues globally. Maybe we've slipped a bit in our old age but still we're humbled to be on the same list with places like Tuckahoe Plantation, Pippin Hill, Oatlands Plantation, Salamander Resort and Inn at Little Washington. Not sure what we can do for an encore except thank EVERYONE for their support and encouragement the past couple years.
