    This was an experience of a lifetime!

    The historic barn is full of character and charm, perfect for my rustic wedding! The mountain views and surrounding orchards provided a breathtaking backdrop! Katherine and her staff ensured that our wedding day was exactly as I dreamed it would be!

    Rustic and charming!

    As a local wedding videographer, I'm always excited to explore and film new venues! This past weekend, I had the honor of filming here... at The Homestead Farm at Fruit Hill Orchard! This venue is absolutely GORGEOUS if you are into rustic buildings and barns! The venue sits just northwest of Winchester, VA and is perfect for both weddings and special events! I can not say enough good things about the owners Katherine Solenberger and her daughter Emily Warren.They were super nice and very professional. Dinner hit the spot too....they fixed everyone some good ole' fried chicken and some sides for dinner! If you are looking for an outdoor venue that includes both history and charm, contact Katherine today! You won't be disappointed! Be sure to tell her that I sent you! Here are a few screenshots from my aerial drone flight! See.....what did I tell you?!!!

Here at the Homestead Farm, we believe that our clients always come first. I have been in the wedding business for years, beginning at historic Fort Collier as the President of that organization, where our site hosted weddings amd many other events over the years. Every Thursday evening at the Homestead Farm, we host "Bluegrass on the Farm" with food and fun for up to 100 guests. I really enjoy events and the great people I get to work with. My grandfather was a florist and I grew up in that business, so we offer full wedding flowers as part of our packages too!
