Erika & Aaron

Second Shooter – Andy Harnick
Erika and Aaron got married on May 16 at Veramar Vineyard in Berryville, one of my favorite outdoor wedding venues in Northern Virginia.
As has been typical in the Washington area this spring, the weather teased us all week with periods of beautiful sunny skies sandwiched between torrential downpours.
I woke up on the 16th to overcast skies and light showers, bummed at the prospect that it might rain on this gorgeous vineyard wedding I had SO been looking forward to. Sometimes things just seem work themselves out and you get an occasional break right when you really need it.
Shortly before noon the rain stopped and the sun tried valiantly to peek through the overcast sky.Â While the clouds Â occasionally looked ominous, Erika and Aaron were able to have their wedding outside surrounded by the lush bright green backdrop of the grape vines and a moody, dramatic sky.
With precision timing mother nature finally lost her patience and let loose with heavy rain as were finishing our outdoor Â portrait session. The patter of the rain on the roof created a cozy and intimate reception inside the winery. Here are a few favorites:
