Blue Valley Vineyard Wedding in Deleplane, VA | DC Wedding Photographer

A Gorgeous Vineyard Wedding in VA

It was a beautiful weekend at Blue Valley Vineyard, and the perfect picturesque setting for my bride and groom to tie the knot! Alyssa and Ashton got married at Blue Valley Vineyard in Delaplane, VA on May 22, 2021. Alyssa called on Terry Kaye Events to bring to life her ethereal vision of a vineyard wedding, and they did a fantastic job!

About Alyssa & Ashton

Like so many other people today, Alyssa and Aston found themselves in the throes of the online dating world, and after a quick swipe on Bumble, (imagine that!) this perfect pair made their way from their phones all the way to the alter! After going on many dates and spending a lot of time together, Ashton knew that he wanted Alyssa to be his girlfriend. It took a little convincing, but his persistence paid off!  Alyssa revealed to her family that they planned to marry just two weeks after they had started dating. How sweet! There were some curveballs, the first being Alyssa having to move back to California to finish college. They made the most out of their long distance relationship, and in April of 2018 after her graduation, Alyssa journeyed back to Maryland to be closer to Ashton. They loved living close to each other!

In December 2019, Alyssa received some shocking news regarding her health. She underwent brain surgery to remove an arteriovenous malformation. While she was in the ICU, Ashton asked her parents for their blessing because he wanted to propose. Both of Alyssa’s parents were thrilled and proposal plans were quickly put into place. Two weeks after surgery, Ashton and Alyssa were in Kentucky with Alyssa’s family. On their second night there, he made a heartfelt speech thanking the family, and ended it with the surprise of a lifetime: He asked Alyssa to spend the rest of her life with him! Alyssa, overwhelmed with this sweet gesture of his commitment and love, began crying, and had to remember to answer the question. It was a definite “YES!”

The Wedding

A + A couldn’t have picked a more beautiful vineyard wedding venue. The day was unforgettable; filled with smiles, tears and lots of laughter! As their photographer, I knew I was witnessing and capturing two people who really loved each other. When Alyssa put her dress on, she was so shocked, declaring out loud “I’M HOT!” And she absolutely was! When she did her first look with her father, I hid behind the camera while her dad shedded some tears over this sweet moment (Note: I’m a sucker for first looks with dads!). It was clear Ashton was equally blown away by how beautiful Alyssa looked. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and included a live illustration of love, choosing to mix sands in a jar, symbolizing unity, love, and commitment. There were lots of tears as they read their vows. After they tied the knot and finished posing for photos, Alyssa and Ashton decided it was time to get in a game of cornhole, because, why not! It was both adorable and hysterical to see them play in wedding attire. As day turned into night, people started busting out their hottest dance moves, eventually leading Ashton and Alyssa to their dazzling sparkler exit to finish off the festivities. With that said, this really was one of my favorite weddings! Not only was the couple amazing, but so was the whole celebration, venue and vendor team! I’m so blessed to have been included, and I wish Alyssa and Ashton all the best for many years to come! Cheers to you both, Alyssa and Ashton!
