We had back to back weddings on Saturday (December 19th.), and Sunday (12/20/09), which was the same weekend as the big snow - with over 12 inches of snow. Here are some images from our Sunday wedding at Stony Point Reformed Presbyterian Church in Bon Air.97x 3205.JPG

                                The Bride (Sarah Arthur) was well prepared and provided matching boots for each bridesmaid.

                     The Reception was held at Wrexham Hall in Chesterfield - the perfect backdrop for a photo.

I can't really think of a better place to spend a snowy day than the Mill at Fine Creek in Powhatan County, Virginia. The snow began falling on Friday (December 18th) at about the time of their rehearsal, and continued falling throughout the day on Saturday. The result was a winter wonderland with at least 14 to 16 inches of snow. I know this first hand since I waded through some very deep spots to get these photos. The Swiss style architecture complemented the Alpine look of the postcard setting.

              Special credit to Powhatan County VDOT for keeping the road to The Mill at Fine Creek in such good shape. The highway was kept open all day and we found it to be quite manageable - considering the amount of snow that had fallen.

     The staff at The Mill at Fine Creek did their part to keep the entrance (above) open and the parking lot was well cleared. The Kabota tractor/snowblower was the right match for the deep snow.

The ceremony was held inside, and after the ceremony the same room would be used for a dinner / reception.
