Eloping at The Fuller House in Winchester, VA

Getting married on a sunny day with warm temperatures is something all couples hope for. Yet things do not always work out the way we hope when it comes to weather, so you either have to be ready to deal with the elements or have a back up plan for your elopement or wedding. That’s where The Fuller House comes into play for my couples!

Kris and Alexandra had originally intended to get married at Blandy Farm. However as their wedding date drew closer, the weather forecast was calling for very cold temperatures and high wind gusts in the 20-30 mph range. When it comes to weather, I always let my couples make the call. I have no problem marrying (and photographing) people in the rain, sleet, snow, or gusting winds….but I am not the one having my picture taken. Therefore I always give my couples three options: 1) proceed as planned, 2) reschedule the date and time in which a re-booking fee applies, or 3) contact The Fuller House and see if it is available for use as an indoor venue.

With the cold and wind looking quite intolerable, Kris and Alexandra opted for The Fuller House. Owned by my good friend Susan WinkelerThe Fuller House is located right in downtown historic Winchester and is a large home with a big open floor plan serving as a perfect quiet setting for elopements or smaller weddings. Susan has some of the most affordable venue rates in town and also allows the booking of 30 minute blocks of time…which was all Kris and Alexandra needed for their elopement and 20 minutes worth of photos. The best part? My clients receive a significant discount if they choose to use The Fuller House!

If you don’t want to worry about the weather forecast on the day of your wedding, The Fuller House is your perfect option. Send me a message and I can help you book a date and time on my calendar and reserve a time with The Fuller House too.

“The photos look amazing! I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Thank you again!” – Alexandra D.
