The building is beautiful. The front is nearly all glass, and it has a beautiful view of the vineyards. This wedding took place on the outside patio and porch area with an especially beautiful view of the mountains and vineyard. There is an outside, casual seating area as well, but due to the weather we stuck to the sheltered areas. Fortunately, the inside space at Big Cork is also amazing. They have events in the bar area and the fermentation/barrel room, and there is a good flow to the space.
The couple did a wonderful job of using the space and bringing their personality and vision to the event. It was such a fun evening!
The ceremony was performed by the groom’s cousin who was personable and kept us all laughing. They had one of their grandmothers serve as the flower girl (which was adorable), and the reception was classic for the couple – wood-fired pizza, wine, and Krumpe’s Do-nuts. The ceremony tent on the patio turned into the dance floor after dinner, and they danced the night away!
It was so nice to see old friends and witness old friends start a new marriage.
I’m so excited to share our engagement photos with you today!
Looking through these, I kept thinking about the Princess Bride and her “Farm boy, poor and perfect.” If you haven’t seen it, it’s one of the best movies of all time (seriously); you must watch it!
The Fellow, being the wonderful man that he is, let me have free reign over theme and wardrobe. I wanted a vintage feel and had been dying to wear the crinoline I scored at Goodwill a little while ago.
We asked his grandmother to do our photos as she does photography as a hobby, and I am so pleased with how they came out!
I had my heart set on taking our pictures on an old stone bridge. We went to Sharpsburg, MD to the Antietam Battlefield where we know of two such bridges, and unfortunately both were being restored and were blocked off, covered with plastic, and had construction pieces and dumpsters right next to them. I was crestfallen.
We decided to stop at the Sherrick House where I could at least have some pictures with a stone wall. A friend at work gave me the adorable picnic basket in the pictures for my birthday, and between it and the historic house, our romantic, vintage bridge photo shoot was turned into the sweetest, vintage, farm, picnic photo shoot, and I just loved it!
