The second annual Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival was last weekend and, if you missed it, well… you really missed it. Be sure to find your way to next year’s version.
It’s a great opportunity to rub elbows with some Hollywood folk, enjoy some amazing movies, eat some awesome food and sip, sip, sip!
During the festival, founder Jerusha Stewart was described as a “force of nature.” This is certainly appropriate! Our community owes her a debt of gratitude for bringing this fabulous event to Vero Beach.
Here are some peeks into what I saw while working as photographer for the festival. The last image is of actor Geoff Stults. Don't miss that!
