Barn Wedding Venues in Virginia: Anne Claire+Jon

Looking to have your wedding at one of the most beautiful barn wedding venues in Virginia? Sorella Farms will make your wedding day run flawlessly, no doubt about it! The staff certainly outdid themselves for Anne Claire and Jon’s wedding this past weekend.

The couple met during Anne Claire’s freshman year at Liberty University. Her roommates talked her into going to the Block Party and Jon was there with some of his friends. They started talking  and slowly became friends. He asked Anne Claire to date him on a sunset hike one October evening, and the rest is history.

The proposal started out with the guise of taking Anne Claire off on fun little excursions as a stress reliever after work every couple of days. The day he proposed, Jon took Anne Claire to a little store near Sharptop. They would always go here after hiking to get some of the DELICIOUS food that Joy, a lady who works there, makes. Jon had called ahead to make sure she was making both Anne Claire’s favorite soup, and the apple fritters that day.

From there they went up on the parkway and had a picnic at one of the overlooks with a view of Sharptop, a place that holds quite a few memories for the two. He set up his phone to record using the excuse that he wanted to time-lapse the sunset. After they finished their picnic, he waited for Anne Claire to stand up, and when she turned around, he was on one knee with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in his hands. He had carved out the book so that when she opened it, the ring was inside on a brass wire, resting under the chapter heading “the Unbreakable Vow.”

After the wedding, the couple embarked on a road trip to Florida, stopping a few days in Charleston, SC then on to Key Largo. In a few weeks, they will be packing up and moving out to Albuquerque, New Mexico for Jon to get his PHD at UNM and start their new adventure.

Anne Claire and Jon, your wedding was beyond beautiful! I am so honored to have been able to capture such a special day!! I wish you both a marriage even more beautiful than your wedding!
