Vendor Lovin’ is a series where I share some of my favorite wedding pros & resources.
Today, I kick off my Vendor Lovin’ series with a venue that is one of my absolute favorite places to shoot. I first discovered Barren Ridge Vineyards when I was working in Staunton as art director for the American Shakespeare Center. David and I were still long-distance dating at the time, and when he came up to visit, we would explore the area and more often than not our explorations included a stop at one of Virginia’s amazing wineries and breweries. One evening after dinner, we decided to check out Barren Ridge, and as we rounded the twisty road leading up to the winery, my jaw literally dropped. The views here have to be some of the prettiest in the entire state. Just off I-64 in Fishersville, Va., this intimate 165-acre vineyard is located on the Higgs family’s former apple orchard in Augusta County.
