Katy & Tony's Wedding Day
Congratulations to Katy & Tony who were married at Keswick Vineyards on May 11th. I remember when Katy & Tony first came to view Keswick Vineyards as a venue for their wedding, we immediately hit it off when we realized we both had Yorkie dogs. They also liked the fact that we are very animal friendly and host "Yappy Hours" every Sunday in our tasting room where people can bring their animals inside our tasting room and animal shelters are here for those who want to adopt. When Katy & Tony heard that my Yorkie went missing and was finally found after being hit by a car, I was touched that they sent me a sympathy card. When they came back for a visit they also brought me this beautiful frame that had my dog's picture in it with a place for me to put his collar. How sweet was that? This was just another example to me on what beautiful couples get married here and how we really do make that personal connection with them.
Katy & Tony couldn't have picked a more beautiful day to get married. The sun was out but we had a gentle breeze with no humidity so things couldn't have been better for an outdoor wedding. With our couples having 12 hours here, Tony & his groomsmen enjoyed relaxing while playing pool in the Carriage House and croquet out on the lawn while Katy & her bridesmaids got ready.
Katy was given away by her father. What a breathtaking bride she was with her beautiful white wedding dress. Her bouquet had colors of blue and yellow which accented the aqua blue dresses the bridesmaids wore. After the ceremony performed by Officiant Buddy Marston, guests proceeded to the East Lawn for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. IK Catering provided the food for the evening which included some good old southern country cooking with such fixings as pulled BBQ, corn bread, cole slaw, mac & cheese and grits with shrimp & bacon. Yummy!!! Centerpieces were kept simple with yellow flowers & candles with pictures of them at different vacation spots to identify guest's tables. On their sweetheart table they had framed pictures of their two dogs. Guests danced the night away to music provided by DJ Pauly Madison. All these moments were captured by photographer Daniel McGarrity and videographer AJ Chavar.
