Laughter Is The Secret to Life
Sarah and Michael’s long awaited Virginia wedding took place at Keswick Vineyards on Friday, September 8th in front our iconic fountain. Sarah, Michael and their friends definitely have that type of relationship where they like to rib one another so I knew this wedding could have some surprises in hand. Well, I was right!
At the conclusion of the ceremony a small stool was hidden in the bushes. Just as their Pastor said they could kiss, Michael’s Best Man interrupted that moment and placed that stool down so Michael would be taller for their first kiss. As you can see, the entire wedding party got a good laugh out of that one.
This ribbing humor continued into their wedding reception with their first dance. The groomsmen had dared our couple that if they danced to this certain song (I won’t mention it but lets just say it isn’t one you would normally hear at a wedding let alone for a first dance), they would give them $300.00. Well, they did and they are now $300.00 richer!
So, when it came time for cake cutting I definitely knew some cake smashing was going to happen and it did. Thankfully, these two have that special humor type of relationship that adds that extra spark for this marriage to last forever.
As you can see by the photos, the men really enjoyed the cigars that the couple had for their guests to enjoy. Topping off the evening with a delicious buffet dinner and desserts made by a family member. Oh, did I mention my favorite part of this wedding???? Pockets! The brides dress had pockets! Gotta love that.
