Castle Hill Cider Wedding

With so many weddings being altered and postponed in light of what is going on in the world, we thought we would shed a little light with Libby & Eric’s Castle Hill Cider Wedding. We have been photographing the Lane Family for years. Libby’s wedding was the third Lane wedding we have photographed, so it was very special to us. 

The Wedding Day

Rain rain go away! Well, Libby did wish for a little snowy send-off, but instead, she got a full day of rain. However, as the superstition goes, it is supposed to bring the couple good luck. Nonetheless, with the stunning background of Castle Hill Cider’s barn-like venue, and stunning fairyland garden decor the day was absolutely spectacular. Now the Lane family really knows how to have fun and throw a wedding. We have been photographing this family’s celebrations and happy occasions since before Jack, the youngest son, was born.

In true Lane Wedding fashion, the large bridal party with all guests in tow didn’t let the shift in plans to -everything indoors- damper their spirits!

Surrounded by a room full of bridesmaids and groomsmen, both Libby and Eric, prepared for their big day. Eric and the men were on one end of the venue, enjoying a few beers, and Libby and ladies were on the other end, sipping champagne. Everyone hustled to get ready as the cider tasting room patrons finished their tastings and headed out into the rain. 

The silhouette of Beth and Maddie against the huge windows working diligently to make sure that Libby was perfectly dressed for Eric’s first look was one of my favorite shots of the day.

We were able to get a few quick shots of the frosted look and a few quick shots looking at the camera between the showers.  However, seeing how emotional Eric was when he turned around and walked to his soon to be wife made all of that go away. It was so sweet and heartfelt. At that moment, it wouldn’t have mattered if it was snow, sleet, showers, or sunshine. 

The ceremony was moved to the attic, which was warm and inviting, with cider barrels and appropriate decor.  Through laughter and tears, Eric and Libby we pronounced husband and wife. 

The Reception

Then everyone headed downstairs into the reception with introductions of broadway-like improvisations from the wedding party. This set the tone for a full evening of fun and celebrating!

A reflective speech by Billy, the father of the bride, started off the night with laughter and stories of little Libby’s antics as a child.  Then there was a family-style dinner, including a long head table, that set the mood for togetherness and harmony. Following dinner, there were hours of non-stop dancing where everyone had an amazing evening celebrating this great couple. I can say with certainty, that a great time was had by all!

It is never too late for a Beautiful Bridal Portrait Session! Courtney and Jay were married in Mexico three years ago and did not take part in some typical wedding traditions. Three years later, as a gift to Courtney’s mom Vicki, she came to our studio for a traditional portrait session.

Courtney looked absolutely beautiful for this session. We fell in love with her gorgeous lace dress. She had her hair and make-up styled perfectly to match the delicate lace.

She was all smiles and her personality came through as she posed in front of the camera. We took some traditional studio portraits. Then we went outside to our gardens, for some outdoor shots. Honestly, we aren’t sure which ones we like better. They all turned out gorgeous.

Our past brides know that we are huge proponents of having bridal portraits done. There is just something about seeing that smile on a bride (even after the wedding) as she poses in her wedding dress and the spotlight is all on her. Courtney isn’t the first bride that we have taken portraits of after the fact. It is never too late to capture a beautiful bride!

While we understand that bridal portraits aren’t for everyone, we do encourage all of our brides to consider having them done. We have never had a bride say that she regrets having a bridal portrait session. However,  we have certainly had them tell us that they wish they had done them. So if you are planning a wedding, give us a call to schedule a portrait session consultation. We will photograph your portraits, even if we aren’t your day-of photographer. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Now that the groom has seen his bride, we can share this Stunning Outdoor Bridal Portrait Session with you! Libby Lane and Eric Dullen were married yesterday, January 11th, at Castle Hill Cider in Keswick, Virginia. We will be sharing those gorgeous images with you very soon! In the meantime, we can show you the images from her outdoor bridal portrait session.

Libby’s session took place on a beautiful fall afternoon. The color of the leaves on the trees was absolutely gorgeous and the ground was perfectly covered with every shade of golden yellow and natural brown.

We have been photographing Libby and the entire Lane Family for many years. There are five children in all and this was the third wedding (so far!).  It is such an honor to photograph so many important milestones in the lives of one family. Hayes & Fisk has done numerous family portraits for the Lane Family and now to do the third wedding is just such a privilege.

We think you will agree that the images below and absolutely gorgeous and they made for a stunning portrait. Hayes & Fisk also photographed the couple’s Engagement Session. Click here to see these images which include the most spectacular rainbow. Libby and Eric and truly “Lucky in Love”.

Now that engagement season is in full spring, we are thrilled to be talking with so many new couples! We absolutely love photographing all things bridal and love that so many brides are continuing the tradition of doing bridal portraits.

If you are planning a wedding, we encourage you to call us today! We would love to talk with you about how Hayes & Fisk can help make all of your dreams come true.
