A Tribute to Kate:
On May 26, 2021, Kate and Shane stood before family and close friends at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, VA to renew their vows and to celebrate their beautiful love story.
In 2018, at the behest of her doctor, Kate had a routine mammogram. Though she was not yet 40, her doctor warned her about the high incidence of breast cancer in veterans who were stationed near burn pits in Iraq and urged her to get checked out early. Sadly, Kateโ€™s mammogram revealed the worst. She had three tumors in her breast and lymph nodes. Kate was diagnosed with an aggressive form of heterogenous stage IV breast cancer.
She underwent several intense chemotherapy programs, but her cancer unfortunately continually changed, making it incredibly challenging to treat. We are incredibly saddened to announce that Kate lost her battle with breast cancer this week. We all fell in love with this beautiful soul and are heartbroken for Shane and their sweet little boy.
Read more of this couple's story and see the images celebrating Kate's life on today's newest blog post.
We are eternally grateful for this incredible team:

HAPPY NATIONAL BEER DAY!!! It sure is crazy to think how many 10s of Thousands of beers we (or our couples in this case) have poured from our truck and mobile bars in a few short years!

One of the main reasons I started this business was due to the lack of good beverages being served at weddings and events (particularly in kegs). With so many breweries/wineries located in Loudoun County and the surrounding areas, it was a shame not to see these local brews being poured at weddings/events.

I always love when I pour a local brew at an event and a guest asks us where it is from. Not only do we help local breweries/wineries with beverage sales at events we do, but we also drive customers to their establishments to taste their other offerings.

In addition to all that, we love elevating the bar experience for our clients and all their guests!

CHEERS to many more cold beers getting poured through our taps!

Will your epic dance floor photos end up framed and hanging on the wall in your house? Probably not ๐Ÿ˜‚ But they are such fun memories to capture!

You don't always need your photographer there til the very end of the night, but make sure to book coverage through a good amount of dancing so you don't miss out on these moments ๐ŸŽตโค๏ธ๐ŸŽตโค๏ธ

Last year caused so many changed plans for so many of my couples! Like Nick and Khea... They had to postpone their plans multiple times. But I'm so grateful Krysta Norman Photography was able to step in my place earlier this month when they gathered with their family and friends to document this very special day.

In honor of our angel, Kate, we share a few highlights from her Wish Upon a Wedding last year. It was a perfect setting for an intimate celebration, spring florals in blue and yellow highlight the room and melodies of a string quartet playing in the background. It was such an honor to cater for such a beautiful soul and we are grateful to be a part of her special day. Sending love to all those that her heart has touched ๐Ÿ’œ
