Unique cocktail hour

20130619-191116.jpg

A very fun wedding with a unique cocktail hour. The bride and groom love beer so we paired each appetizer with a craft beer and stationed it during the cocktail hour. Guest could mingle, while trying the different beers.

What a beautiful wedding! We were so happy that Richard + Jacquelyn brought us to the beautiful mountains of Virginia to film their “Old Bohemian Paris meets Vintage Virginia” style wedding!
