Old House Vineyards | Micro Wedding | Natalie & Ryan


Old House Vineyards. Virginia. Wedding.

Natalie and Ryan’s micro wedding at Old House Vineyards was nothing short of beautiful! Like many couples this year, their plans had to be changed due to Covid-19.

Even though their plans had to be changed a bit, that did not stop this lovely couple from celebrating their love for one another. Natalie and Ryan shared such a beautiful, intimate ceremony surrounded by their immediate families. It was so heartwarming to listen to their meaningful vows and watch the joy surrounding them. It was so clear how in love they are and how much they are loved.

The Ceremony

A ceremony tradition at Old House Vineyards is to place a lock on the bridge and throw the key into the pond. The lock is engraved with the couples’ names and wedding date. It is such a neat and special tradition! How cool is it that Natalie and Ryan can come back to where they said their “I Do’s” and see their lock on the bridge alongside many other couples that have made the same commitment!

Following the ceremony, Natalie and Ryan snuck away for some romantic portraits before enjoying a quiet dinner with their families. The storm clouds were rolling in, but thankfully we were able to squeeze in just the right amount of portraits before the rain came down!

The rain only lasted for about 15 minutes and then it cleared up, giving them the most beautiful evening. Natalie and Ryan were able to share their first dance outside, by the pond, under the most beautiful sunset sky. If you ask me, it doesn’t get much better than that!

Even though their plans may have been altered, I know Natalie and Ryan had a day that they will never forget!

Congratulations to Natalie and Ryan!
