Wedding in Winchester, Va…

Melanie and David aka Bride & Groom

The Wedding…

We attended the wedding of Eileen’s good friend Marianna’s son David and his bride Melanie. The wedding was held on the property of her aunt and uncle. Eileen and Marianna’s friendship goes a long way back dating to when Marianna was living in Israel and raised her children there when they were young. David and his sister Talia grew up with Eileen’s children in Israel. The wedding was a  barbecue (what else?) and was a lovely event. Here are some of the images that Eileen took there…

Winchester & Berryville, Va….

Winchester is a small city located in the Northwestern portion of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Berryville is the town next door and was the place where they held the wedding party.

The area is quite interesting and has a long history dating back to well before its’ founding in 1802.

Most of Winchester’s  history revolves around the Civil War. There were 6 battles within Winchester during the war. It was the area where Gen. Stonewall Jackson used to help defend the Shenandoah Valley area. Berryville had one battle there. The area is filled with rolling hills and farmland and is the starting point of the Skyline Drive.
