Anna and Hutton's Wedding Day!
When Anna first came to Keswick Vineyards for a tour of the property, she knew immediately that this was the venue for them. We had a Saturday available in 2015 but it was only 4 ½ months away. Would she be able to organize a wedding within that time frame???? Of course, and she did! On Saturday, August 1st, Anna & Hutton were married and everything was just perfect! This just shows you that you don’t need a year or longer to pull off an exceptional wedding. Anna & Hutton arrived early at Keswick Vineyards to get ready for their ceremony which was off site at a local church. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed themselves on the East lawn of Edgewood Estate while sipping some award winning wines and appetizers. Corn hole games were also available for guests to enjoy while the couple got their portraits taken. Once cocktail hour was over, guests found their seat under the Sperry tent and enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner prepared by Southern Inn Catering. I love how Anna used an old window pane to display the menu. She put burlap cloth behind the glass so the writing would stand out more. Great idea! She also had for centerpieces bouquets of the same flower in mason jars with a ribbon tied around them. Very simple yet elegant. Besides a delicious dinner, guests enjoyed some homemade desserts and danced the night away. This wedding had the best ending that I have seen in 5 years. For the last song, DJ Frank Smith played “Lean On Me”. Just as the song started everyone, and I mean everyone, formed a giant circle around the dance floor and put their arms around each other and sang along with the music. Towards the end Anna & Hutton danced in the middle of the circle joined by their parents creating an inner circle. It was just such a beautiful way to close out the evening. And then when that song was over, everyone broke out into singing the UVA fight song. This was one of those weddings that you could just feel the closeness and love of everyone there.
