Well, I knew it would eventually happen and it did. We had our first rained on wedding:( The good news, our rain plan worked and everything was fine. Stephanie & Nick said “I do” on May 5th amongst their guest under Keswick Vineyards
Sperry tent. Stephanie’s father was a hands on father and made this beautiful pergola to be used for the ceremony. (He also made a table & benches to be used for a lounge area) Initially the pergola was set near the vineyard but Mother Nature wasn’t going to give a break so we quickly moved the pergola under the tent and set chairs on the dance floor and created an aisle. With umbrellas in hand, Stephanie was escorted by her father to the tent. Parents were seated on the dance floor while the rest of the guest sat at their tables. I must say, this created a wonderful, relaxed feeling for the ceremony. Stephanie and the rest of the bridesmaids looked stunning with their hair being done by Moxie in Charlottesville. After the ceremony, guest mingled under the tent while enjoying food & drinks by 20 South Catering. I couldn’t resist myself from sampling some chocolates that were made by the bride’s Aunt on the chocolate table. If you want to order some delicious, homemade chocolates, go to www.ldcandy.com. Personally the chocolate covered carmel with salt on the outside was unbelievable along with the toffee. Right next to the chocolate table was a simple, yet elegant wedding cake by Cakes by Rachel. The tables were adorned with beautiful flowers by Carla Yoder of Artistic Florist in Harrisonburg, VA. Guest enjoyed dancing the night away to music being played by DJ Derek Tobler. The guest were treated when the brides great Uncle played the accordion for a traditional family wedding dance. The finale to the night was Carpe Donuts for some and brandy & cigars for others. Thanks to Albemarle Limousines for transporting everyone safely back to their hotels. The entire wedding was captured by Andrew Harnik Photography.
