Military Vineyard Wedding

The natural beauty of Keswick Vineyards and the Edgewood Estate has never been so happily matched as with the lovely, unassuming elegance of a Naval wedding, as was the happy occasion earlier this month. Carole and Brent, a giddily-in-love couple, had the privilege of being Keswick Vineyard's first military wedding, and the level of class, elegance, and attention to detail that they created throughout their entire event left everyone hoping it is not the last military wedding to occur on these grounds. Shindig Weddings & Events helped design and plan a lovely Southern wedding, complete with the elegant details of provided parasols for the guests (to shield from the evening sun) to peaches provided at each place setting {a nod to the origin of the bride's middle name}, to a jaw-dropping-beautifully sword-arch upon the couple's recessional. In homage to the bride's Japanese heritage, 1,001 origami paper cranes were lovingly crafted by the bride's friends and hung for display, and all of the menu and beverage choices were hand-selected from local sources. As Carole and Brent fell in love in Hawaii, several Hawaiian influences were incorporated, but none more resoundingly appreciated than the Kona coffee, served over ice, that was brought out as the dancing ensued! With a warm summer's night, Keswick Vineyard's staff helped make the evening comfortable for everyone, providing cool towels for the wedding party at the ceremony and throwing out iced towels onto the dance floor as the night kicked into high gear -- this was Southern hospitality at its finest! As the couple bid goodnight and exited into a lovely town car tied with dozens of raucously celebratory tin cans, hundreds of "Virginia is for Lovers" cookies waited for their guests upon their return. At the end of the night, a beautiful wedding had been celebrated, a fabulous party had been enjoyed, and a sweet young marriage had begun. Special thanks to the following vendors: Meghan Streit and her team from Sindig Weddings & Events, Beggars Banquet Catering, DJ Derek Tobler, wedding dress by Isis Bridal, John Cachero Photography, Citrus Ceremonies Videography, Cake by Pastry Love, Hair & make-up by Jeanne Cusick and venue & award winning wines by Keswick Vineyards.
