With phenomenal views, a gorgeous pastel color palette, sleek naval uniforms and charming Christian melodies, Megan and Tony were blessed with the country outdoor wedding of their dreams at the spectacular Hermitage Hill Farm & Stables in Waynesboro, VA.



After the ceremony, all the guests gathered for a lovely cocktail hour inside the stable. As they enjoyed drinks and finger foods, guests were able to interact with the beautiful horses while socializing with family and friends.



During the cocktail hour, the bridal party and close relatives took time for photographs by Ron Dressel. Hermitage Hill Farm offered a variety of scenes for the photographer to capture the moment with this lovely couple.



Guests took a break from the dance floor to witness the bride and groom cutting their beautifully decorated cake from HotCakes.



At the end of the reception, guests lined up along the stable, forming an aisle for Megan and Tony to make their grand departure as Mr. & Mrs. Sham.
