Armin & Eric | Keswick, VA
Armin & Eric’s day was a true miracle. As soon as I arrived on premises of Keswick Vineyards, I started to fly the drone knowing my window of opportunity would be short because of the imminent rain. As soon as I began my flight back down to the ground, it started raining and I got enough drone footage.
We spent the morning with Armin & Eric in their rooms that were so close to each other and they managed to not see each other until the ceremony began. They opened up their thoughtful gifts to each other and saw each other’s parents. It was already such an emotional day with tears of joy and a little sadness from rain ruining their dream of having a beautiful Persian outdoor ceremony. As the ceremony time approached, the wedding planner from Cando Catering, saw a window of opportunity as the weather would miraculously would clear up ONLY for one hour which was just enough time for their 30 minute-ish ceremony. The team carried all the decor and setup of the ceremony that was already setup in the reception tent outside and the ceremony went off without a hitch. There was even some time for some portraits of their families and bride and groom portraits! I’ve had a lot of clouds break just in time for sunset portraits, but I’ve never experienced the rain stopping just for the ceremony. The outdoor event truly helped the video come out more beautiful and it was such an awesome call from Cando Catering. Brilliant move!
The rest of the evening went beautifully planned. From Armin’s father’s awesome toast about F.O.B’s (fresh off the boat, you have to hear it!) and traditional dances and heartfelt toasts from Eric’s brother-in-law/best man & Armin’s older sister, the evening ended with dancing, and driving away in their vintage car. Keswick Vineyards provided a perfect backdrop for this awesome, perfect couple and we couldn’t be more honored to have captured this day for them! Enjoy their Feature Film!
