Laura & Christian's Fall Wedding

Laura & Christian were married on Saturday, November 2nd, and had the fortune of the peak of fall colors for their wedding day.  Photographer Elizabeth Larson and myself just couldn't get enough of this couple with the beautiful colors and lighting Mother Nature was giving us.  Please excuse the excessive photos I'm including but sometimes you just can't help yourself and this was one of those times.  Laura & Christian incorporated into their ceremony the sealing of a wine box with love letters in it with a special bottle of wine.  I love when couples do this.  Another cute detail to their wedding was stacking dolls on tables to represent Christian's Russian inheritance.  This couple was just full of fun and silliness which definitely came through on some of the photos with their wedding party.  Instead of the traditional wedding cake, Laura & Christian opted for a dessert table with tasty pastries and Carpe Donut truck for dessert.  What a wonderful wedding these two had.  Thanks to the following vendors for doing such a fantastic job:  20 South Catering, Barb Wired Event Planner, Photographer Elizabeth Larson, DJ Rick Haggard, Hair & Make-up by Faces by Joy, Florist Lacy's of Orange, Carpe Donut Truck, Officiant Lisa Rogers, rentals by Festive Fare and Camryn Limousine.  Click here to read Elizabeth Larson's blog.

Lee & Frank Close Out Our 2013 Wedding Season

On Sunday, November 10th, Lee & Frank concluded the Keswick Vineyards 2013 wedding season with their marriage.  Another beautiful, fall day in Charlottesville with the sun shining was given to them.  Lee is from Hawaii and incorporated some of those traditions into her wedding.  Frank wore a traditional Hawaiian Lei that Lee's Mother brought with her from Hawaii.  Lee and the bridesmaids wore Hawaiian flowers in their hair.  Later in the evening Lee took center stage and performed a beautiful hula dance for Frank.  Once again, I must thank all the vendors that do such a superb job here including:  Caterer Hotcakes, Event Planner Barb Wired, DJ Andy Wilfong, Photographer Aaron Watson, Videographer Ian's Creations, Florist Blue Ridge Floral Design, Officiant Bhavani Metro, Camryn Limousine, Rentals by MS Events, Hair & Make-up by Virginia Glenn at Bella's Boutique.  Click here to read Photographer Aaron Watson's blog or click here to see some of his photos.

Rachel & Sean's Wedding Day

Rachel & Sean were married at Keswick Vineyards on Sunday, October 27th on a colorful Charlottesville fall day.  I love how Rachel & Sean chose to have their wedding ceremony in what I call our "fall" location.  It gives you the best of everything for a backdrop.  You have the Estate, the fountain, the vineyard, the mountains and all the fall colors!  Hard to capture it all in a photo since you are basically surrounded with breathtaking views.  Rachel incorporated just enough orange in her color scheme to blend with the natural fall colors.  Her bouquet by Verde Natural Florist was right on and the simplicity of the centerpieces were perfect!  Love the idea of using old shutters to put place cards in for guests to find their table.  Also, love the look of using an old door as a table top above wine barrels to create a sweet table. Thanks to the following vendors that make weddings here so effortless for our couples:  Caterer Barbeque Exchange, DJ Andy Wilfong, Photographer Audra Wrisley, Verde Natural Florist, Officiant Steve Farmer, rentals by MS Events and Musician Peter Markush.

Lindsey & Joshua's Wedding Day

Congratulations to Lindsay & Joshua who were married at Keswick Vineyards in Charlottesville on Saturday, October 26th.  What a gorgeous Virginia fall day!  The fall colors are really starting to show now.  It would of been nice perhaps 10 degrees warmer, or at least get rid of the wind that day, but all in all everything was perfect!  Check out the chuppah from Verde Natural Florist.  Sandy and her husband Peter did an amazing job building and decorating it.  It blended perfectly with the backdrop of the vineyard.  Funniest part of the ceremony was when Joshua tried to break the glass to symbol the conclusion of the ceremony.  That glass just wouldn't break!  He tried, and tried, and tried again.  Finally someone gave him a rock.  Can't wait to see the video of that moment.  Guest then went from the outdoor ceremony to inside the heated Sperry tent for cocktails and reception.  Guest enjoyed a delicious family style dinner prepared by 20 South Catering and then danced the night away.  Thanks to the following vendors for doing a flawless job:  20 South Catering, Event Planner Barb Wired, DJ TD Layman of Sound Enforcement, JMK Photography, Cakes Unlimited, videographer Chris Scott, Albemarle Vintage Limousine for the vintage car and buses, rentals by MS Events, Verde Natural Florist, Musician Evan Mook and Officiant Brian Purcell.  Click here to view photographer Jamie Kay's blog.  Click here to view this wedding featured on Borrowed & Blue.  Click here to watch video by Chris Scott.

Congratulations to Lauren & Jesse!

Well, we witnessed another miracle when it comes to the weather radar for this wedding.  Lauren & Jesse were married Saturday, October 19th at Keswick Vineyards.  As the afternoon wore on, the radar started to pick up a lot of color and I'm not talking fall colors:)  It looked like a giant rain mass was heading right for us at exactly the ceremony time.  As we all waited to see exactly what would happen I think we all knew we were going into a rain plan, but then the craziest thing happened again.  The clouds parted their way and went right around us.  No one could believe it.  There is just something with our location and the mountains that can split a storm coming right at us.  Not only did the storm miss us, but it ended up giving us one of those colorful sunsets.  Truly amazing!  Lauren & Jesse got their dream wedding and more.  Special thanks to the following vendors:  Blue Ridge Catering, DJ TD Layman of Sound Enforcement, Photographer Jamie Kay of JMK Photography, Hair by Jennifer Snoddy of Classy Images, Florist Couture Design, Cake by Teri Edwards of Cakes Unlimited, Officiant Dave Kingrea, and Photo Booth of Charlottesville.  Click here to see some of Jamie Kay's photos.

Amanda & Justin's Wedding Day

What better way to close out a 3 wedding week end at Keswick Vineyards than with the marriage of Amanda & Justin.  Unfortunately, that tropical storm, Karen, was still lingering around to give us another overcast & drizzle day.  The good news again was we were able to get a break in the drizzle to do the ceremony outside!  Amanda & Justin opted to do a first look which really works well in these October wedding days in Virginia since it gets dark outside much earlier and you lose that really good lighting for photos.  The guys were all dressed in black tuxedo's with the bridesmaids in beautiful, wine colored full length gowns.  Guests were able to enjoy a lounge area while taking photo's in the photo booth.  Later in the evening a cupcake truck came to satisfy everyones sweet tooth.  Thanks to the following vendors for doing an incredible job:  Event Planner Barb Wired, 20 South Catering, Officiant Claire Goodman, DJ T.D. Layman of Sound Enforcement, Photographer Marta Locklear, Hair by Jessica Myers, Make-up Artist Judy Hayward, Southern Blooms by Pat's Floral, Pastry Chef Passionflower, Transportation by Camryn Limousine, Cupcake trailer by Sweethaus, MS Events for lounge furniture & photo booth & Festive Fare for rentals.

Congratulations Corrie & Matthew!

Congratulations to Corrie and Matthew who were married at Keswick Vineyards on Saturday, October 12th.  While Mother Nature continued to provide us with overcast and misty weather from the left overs of Tropical Storm Karen, Corrie's Mother went to work setting up her daughters dream wedding.  Corrie and her Mother are very crafty people and made so many things for this wedding.  Her Mother sewed all the tablecloth overlays, napkins, placemats, even the bouquets!  Can you believe those bouquets are made of fabric????  Amazing!  Corrie's Mom had also made this incredible quilt as a wedding gift that was hung behind the sweetheart table.  Another surprise for Corrie and Matthew was a huge canvas painting that was hung in the tent of the couple, along with their dog, in a sports car.  Corrie also had collected china with every plate being different, furniture to hang out in under the tent, different items to be set up as centerpieces that were different on each table, a big trunk to put ice in and display beer on the lid of the trunk.  There are just way too many things that Corrie and her Mom did to make this wedding so personable to describe.  Corrie and Matthew chose to be married on the East lawn of Edgewood Estate under a 300+ year old oak tree.  Even though Mother Nature was being difficult, she did let up on the drizzle so we could still do an outdoor ceremony.  Everything was simply beautiful!  Corrie had two dresses for her day; the traditional wedding gown and then a party dress for the reception.  Love how her dress and bridesmaids dresses match the feel and decor of the tent.  Of course, none of this could of happened without the help of the following vendors:  Event Planner Barb Wired, Catering by The Catering Outfit, DJ Dan Sims, Photographer Jodi Miller, Hair & Make-up Artist Jesse Wagner from Aveda Newport News, Hedge Florist, Officiant Rob Marshall and Albemarle Limo's for buses.

Congratulations Lindsay & Bryan!

Congratulations to Lindsay and Bryan we were married at Keswick Vineyards on Friday, October 11th.  Mother Nature sure did a 180 from the weather we had last week end.  Because of the left overs from a tropical storm, the skies were overcast with some drizzle.  Thankfully, the drizzle let up right at ceremony time so Lindsay & Bryan could have their wedding outside like they had dreamed of.  They chose a little different location to have their wedding ceremony.  They chose what I call our "fall" location because on a clear day you have such a panoramic view of the mountains, the Estate, the vineyard and the fountain accented with fall colors.  Unfortunately with the overcast skies you couldn't get all of that view but it was still beautiful.  Thanks to the following vendors for all of their exceptional service last night:  Catering by Harvest Moon, DJ Mark Allen, Photographer Tyler Corvin, Musicians Linden Trio, Hair & Make-up by Anne Kibler of Charlottesville Makeup Artist, Verde Natural Florist, One Preppy Cookies and Bakeshop, Officiant Steve Beam and Albemarle Limousine for buses to ensure everyone made it home safely.

3 is a charm, right?

What a great way to finish out a 3 day week end of weddings at Keswick Vineyards with the marriage of Leah & Jeremy.  Leah and Jeremy are such a beautiful couple both inside and out and it was such a pleasure to be able to take some photos of their special day along the side of their professional photographer Christian.  The weather was just perfect again.  The tent was beautiful with the added Asian lanterns over the dance floor.  Check out their cake.  Albemarle Baking Company did an amazing job decorating it with a grape theme which matched the beautiful plum colored bridesmaids dresses.  Leah also surprised Jeremy with a grooms cake of his motorcycle.  I love how they had personalized shades made to put over wine glasses with tea lights in them for each table.  These shades you can have made with your menu on them, a photo or table number like Leah & Jeremy did.  Thanks to all the vendors who helped make their wedding extra special:  Catering by Beggar's Banquet, DJ Andy Wilfong, Photographer Christian Hommel, Pastry Chef Albemarle Baking Company, Officiant Erick Weaver, Florist NW Designs, Hair & Make-up by Theresa Oliver, Musicians Mike Dunn and Janet Muse, Day of Coordinator Diane Burner and Skyline Tent Company.
