Candlelight Dinner

Posted by
Jason Politte (Conway, AR, United States) on 17 September 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

This candle accompanied our recent dinner at the Weinkeller Restaurant at Wiederkehr Village. This was the first restaurant my wife Karen and I ate at as a couple. We were also married at Wiederkehr in 2008. Wiederkehr Village was the first winery in Arkansas and produces some excellent wines. I highly recommend trying them, especially the Beau Noir. It's unlike any red wine you've had before.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.

Very romantic and that string of "pearls" is beautiful to enhance the candle. It is very nice to have these special places and memories. Thanks for the wine tip!

Neat image. That candle is melting with such creativity! Kind of a show off. This is fun and mysterious with the light orbs and two green eyes peeking out at us.
