Let's Get This Party Started!
This wedding weekend we started off with the marriage of Liz and Scott on Friday, October 7th. Often times with our couples, Friday weddings can seem tough and not feasible with family and friends traveling from all corners of the world. In retrospect, it can be quite the opposite! One of the best part about getting married on a Friday is that you and your guests have the rest of the entire weekend to enjoy the surrounding beauty of Charlottesville. There are so many iconic sights and scenes to explore that your guests will thank you for it in the end.
Liz and Scott’s Friday wedding at Keswick Vineyards brought along quite the crowd. They had an impressive guest count of 150, which shows that no matter what day of the week you land at a beautiful location the ones you love will attend!
As with all marriages, you can’t go on without a little support. For their ceremony the couple asked their guests to join them in a prayer circle. The prayer circle was asking their guests to pray together for the happiness and success of their marriage. It was the perfect way for them to soak in the reason why they were together that day and to have them enter married life with the strength and support of their loved ones backing them up.
After that…it was party time! During cocktail hour they had one of their friends sing and play guitar. We all really enjoyed the energy and life he brought to that hour! We can’t wait to have him come back to the vineyard again. He sent guests off to the reception with the ever-famous “Hey Jude” and then it was time to eat!
Once their bellies were full of good food and great wine, the party really started. Liz and Scott hit the dance floor with gigantic cut outs of their faces encouraging guests to follow them. They were a gift from the best man and everyone took turns using them as props on the dance floor. They were definitely a dancing crowd and the dance floor stayed full all night!
Some dessert and a sparkler send off later and that’s a wrap! Congratulations to you both! You hosted a great wedding worthy of remembering!
