This Trump Winery wedding went out with a bang. Literally. It was beautiful all day, until the last 1.5 hours of the reception. The weather took a turn for the worse. Constant lightening and loud, booming thunder. Several loud cracks made the guests jump, but the party went on! Then, about 15 minutes before the last song, another loud boom, crack and complete darkness. There went the power. Thank goodness for Kerri of Blush Events. She was there to help the guests out to the shuttle under umbrellas and make sure everyone got out ok. I would highly recommend her! By this time, most of the area was flooded. I thought leaving the building to get my car was scary enough with all the lightening, but the drive back to the hotel was the most intense drive of my life. I had never experienced flash flooding before. It exists, people, and it’s no joke. Thankfully my second shooter, Kelley, was in the car with me keeping me calm.
On a much more positive note, Meghann + Jon chose such a gorgeous venue for their nuptials! From the breathtaking approach as you pull into the drive, to the intimate ‘barn’ where their guests enjoyed a superb dinner, and to the options for indoor/outdoor reception spaces. My favorite had to have been the 1940 Senior Packard Limousine they rented for the afternoon to take photos with. What a beauty!
Meghann + Jon, thank you so much for including me in your wonderful list of vendors and for choosing me to document your wedding day! Hope you had a wonderful time on your honeymoon!
