Happy Anniversary to Stephanie and Rob who married last year at Chrysalis Winery in Middleburg, Virginia. Being that they love Chrysalis so much that they are VIP members, it made sense that they would want to have their wedding there as well. I remember the huge rainstorm that appeared as we were almost done with the rehearsal (luckily, the tent had gone up the day before so we could run under it); and an unexpected windy gust that blew the ceremony arch down during set up (thank goodness we weighed it down for the ceremony). What I remember most clearly was a beaming bride, and a dance some of the guests performed to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. So much fun! Thanks to Katie Stoops for sharing the photos. Enjoy — Vicky
