Top 10 DC + VA Wedding Venue Bucket List | Virginia Wedding Photographer | Sarandipity Photography

Posted in: Client Education

If you haven’t noticed, a few things have changed around here! I’m in love with my new website and my new branding! I can’t stop looking at it! After months (and I really mean months) of staring at my computer screen, I have finally created a brand I can be proud of, and that I believe fits me to a T.

That said, today I thought I’d christen my new blog with it’s very first post all about my top 10 bucket list venue locations! These locations have been sitting idly in my head for quite some time, and I’d love to share with you all the places I’ve been dying to photograph!


DAR Constitution Hall | Washington, D.C.

Ever since I started, DAR has been the top of my bucket list. I have been in love with the

gorgeous interior of this place for as long as I can remember.

D.C.’s architecture still amazes me, even after living here my whole life!

Pippin Hill Winery | North Garden, VA

Who doesn’t love a chic barn with rolling hills? Especially one that looks like this!

AND has the most incredible hydrangea bushes when in bloom!

Rosemont Manor | Berryville, VA

Of course it’s on my list to shoot at MY wedding venue! Throughout my whole wedding, I wished I was the one photographing it too

but alas, I had more important things to do that day.

Great Marsh Estate | Bealton, VA 

This gorgeous Georgian Mansion is nestled on a massive 121 acre property.

It’s equipped with tons of lodging for guests and it’s bridal suite is straight out of a fairy tale!

I get some Downton Abbey vibes, don’t you think?

Airlie House | Warrenton, VA

Clearly I have a love for old plantation homes and manor houses! I’ll admit, I’ve fallen in love with their historic charm.

The Greenbrier Resort | White Sulpher Springs, WV

While this technically isn’t in the DMV, this is definitely one of my TOP bucket list venues! I mean, look at that interior!

What’s even cooler, is that the decor changes all throughout the resort!

Goodstone Inn Bed + Breakfast | Middleburg, VA

This has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember – I even looked here when planning my own wedding!

I can’t get over how quaint this BnB is, and there is a moss wall that is to-die-for!

Morais Vineyard | Bealton, VA

How crazy is it that something like this exists in Virginia? It looks like you’ve stepped right into a vineyard in the hills of Spain!

The Anderson House | Washington, DC

The Parisian inspired architecture melts my soul. Can’t you just envision a gorgeous summer wedding on the lawn?

The Bellevue | Chantilly, VA

YES you read that right! Smack dab in the heart of the suburbs lies this incredible venue space that looks like it came right out of a Gossip Girl episode!
