Owl Drink to That
Kathryn and Oliver easily won over our hearts when they first came to Keswick Vineyards. Their love had such a presence that it was hard not to be overwhelmed with joy just as they were together. Their friends and family felt much the same as they came together to celebrate just that…the love.
Love, as is true with all weddings, is one of the many reasons a marriage takes place. With this family in particular, a resounding theme for them was “what’s love got to do with it?” (In the famous words of Tina Turner). The answer? Everything.
Kathryn and Oliver had been together for the better part of a decade (so we found out). When you’re with someone for such a substantial portion of your life, your lives then intertwine. Friend groups are meshed and families are joined. It’s a beautiful thing. Both were very evident on September 17th as we celebrated the love of Kathryn and Oliver.
To make their wedding day just as special as their relationship, it was really important to Kathryn and Oliver to incorporate personal touches into their wedding. They wanted for some of the key people in their lives who have benefitted their relationship to be included. The bride’s mother, for example, sang an opera song to the couple and their guests during their ceremony. The groom’s mother handmade their champagne cork escort cards. The bride’s sister and her friend sang a beautiful a cappella song to them during their cake cutting. It was these moments combined that truly made their wedding unique and special, not just to them but also to everyone who was there to witness.
One of the many elements we all fell in love with was their owl ice sculpture. The couple loved owls! They had a wedding owl ice sculpture made to be displayed next to their reception bar which read “Owl Drink to That”. What a hoot!
Best of luck, laughter, and love as you continue forward as husband and wife.
