Weddings in Loudoun Open House 2018 | Kalero Vineyard | Northern Virginia Weddings
March 11th, 2018 was the Weddings in Loudoun Open House 2018 and I was at a newly opening venue, Kalero Vineyard in Purcellville, Virginia. It’s surrounded by rolling hills that provide serene views of the sunset. It’s a rustic barn that has been rebuilt and updated with beautiful finishes, including indoor heat and 3 bathrooms. Despite the temperatures being in the 40s and a chance of snow in the evening, lots of people came out to browse through the vendors and explore this venue.

I was so excited to put together my first promotional table. Opening up my sample metal prints from WHCC, I fell in love. If you’ve never seen metal prints, I highly recommend them. They provide a crisp and clear surface that allows the image to really be highlighted. I prefer their semi matte finish to prevent glare from overhead lights. The colors are just so true and I received many compliments over them. These have built in easels on the back so they can be set out or fold flat. I also like how modern the metal prints look. It’s a thick piece, maybe 3-5mm and the surface wipes off easily to remove fingerprints or dust.
I worked with Purcellville Florist and they provided me with this sweet smelling arrangement that I was ridiculously excited about picking up. I know the vase looks blue, it’s a reflection of the blue sky coming through an adjacent window, it was actually white.
Overall, I tried to keep things simple and not overwhelm any of the couples as they strolled through. I know how bombarded I felt back in the day when I was shopping for venues and vendors. I’m secretly an introvert and today I’m definitely recovering from all that wonderful socialization. I love my job and getting the opportunity to work with people, however, I give 110% so my tank was running on empty.
