Bluestone Vineyard Wedding

Bluestone Vineyard Wedding. Afton and Matt were wed literally within the vines of the Bluestone Vineyard in Bridgewater, Va. Their special day consisted of blush hues, hand-painted signage and a fresh pop of greenery in every twist and turn.

Afton chose a strapless lace fit-and-flare gown that echoed classic bridal style. She accompanied her gown with a long veil and statement earrings.

Her bridesmaids wore a variety of dresses in various styles and shapes but all had cohesive art deco inspired details.
