Tara and Andy get married!
Tara and Andy are our newest Keswick Vineyards couple. They were married here last Saturday, August 27th, 2016 and finished our August weddings strong!
Tara and Andy have personalities that are contagious. There are some people you meet in life and immediately it just works. Similarly, there are venues in Charlottesville that you see and you just know it’s the one. The same was true in both cases for Tara and Andy. We immediately clicked and they immediately fell far in love with Keswick Vineyards. After completing their tour almost a year ago to date, they took the short 2 hour drive back home to DC, picked up the phone and gave us a ring. They knew our dates went fast so they didn’t want to miss the chance of locking down their perfect one!
With the combination of the perfect venue and the perfect vendors Tara and Andy’s wedding was off to a killer start! They hired Keswick Vineyards to be their day of coordinators, so throughout the planning process we were here to offer helpful planning advice and glue together those loose ends couples often find challenging with their busy work schedules. Because they hired us as their day of coordinator, they experienced some advantages that became very helpful to them on wedding day.
It’s no secret that with a wedding comes a bit of stress. However, with a wedding at Keswick Vineyards, comes less stress, and less worry. They were in good hands. In the excitement of the day, a tie was forgotten. Finding this information out very close to picture taking time, Keswick’s team quickly went to trouble shoot, ran inside to the owners house (since Keswick Vineyards is a private residence) and borrowed a tie from the owner, Al. So….what have we learned from this? Al isn’t only useful for his fountain duty, but for his wardrobe too!
After that mini crisis was adverted, we were back on track and smooth sailing. Dinner was served by The Catering Outfit in family style fashion. The couple, having many children in their family, wanted to make sure that they too enjoyed their wedding day as much as they would. They decided to get creative and set up a smaller version of kids tables underneath of the Sperry tent. Clever! They were the perfect size for their tiny guests and even came with tiny chairs and gift bags with activities for the kids to keep occupied throughout the evening. This is one idea I’ll certainly be sharing with our future couples!
