Robbie hearts Meghan | Sanctuary Vineyards
Currituck vineyard wedding and winery reception
Robbie and Meghan were married this weekend at Sanctuary Vineyards in Jarvisburg, NC. We’ve met the couple a few times over the past year and were really excited to see all the hard work and ideas they’ve had come to life!
Meghan’s mom is the sweetest lady, and made me feel so comfortable right from the beginning! The bridal parties used the upstairs getting ready rooms at the winery, just a short distance away from the vineyard they were to marry in.
Meghan and her father drove right up to the shut doors, building that first look anticipation until the moment she walked down the aisle.
After the ceremony, we always take time to do the family and wedding party portraits. After we finish we send everyone on their way to cocktail hour while we have private time with the bride and groom. During portraits with Robbie and Meghan we realized we were without a ride back to reception. Although not a far drive, it’s a little bit of a trek when in wedding attire. We made a phone call and the best of our short walk with portraits along the way until we were picked up.
Meghan’s sister Marissa had prepared a sweet toast, complete with props for Robbie to keep his new wife happy!
Elton, who has been referred to as ‘The most interesting man in the 252′, pours Meghan a glass of one of Sanctuary Vineyards most popular wines, Sweet Serenity. The tasting room provides a more quiet area during the wedding. It’s gorgeous too, with its copper topped bar and oak barrels.
We snuck the bride and groom away while the guests were finishing their Currituck BBQ dinner for a quick kiss behind oak barrels. The winery is a working winery when not being used for receptions. The oak barrels and chilling tanks make for a neat back ground.
Meghan and Robbie wanted to catch the sunset on the creek at the back of the farm. They were so fun and up for trying out all of my ideas, from creaky wooden docks to a flooded boat.
Many thanks to my assistant Robin for holding lights where ever I needed them. I love this picture of the bride and groom at the winery bay doors.
Everyone loves a sparkler exit, but it may not always be possible depending on wind and how dry it is. Luckily for us, we had a perfect spring day!
Robbie and Meghan were completely surprised when they saw the car they had to drive back to Virginia in!
Congratulations and thank you so much for having me!
