Congratulations to Danielle & Michael who were married at Keswick Vineyards on Saturday, July 18th. These high school sweethearts finally tied the knot! They chose to have their ceremony up near the front fountain of Edgewood Estate with the vineyard and mountains as their background. I loved the floral arrangements that were hung on shepherd hooks on each side of the alter. The arrangements were done in little wine barrels! Their florist also made a wreath to go around the top lip of a wine barrel to dress up their unity candle. What a beautiful ceremony they had! After the ceremony guests enjoyed some cocktails and getting some pictures taken in a photo booth. Guests were entertained by the wedding party as they performed a group dance. Get a load of the photo of Michael doing a lift/dip with Danielle. So much fun was had through out the evening with a sparkler departure as they left in a vintage car.

Congratulations to Donna & Eric who were married at Keswick Vineyards on Saturday, July 11th. Donna & Eric met through a friend of Eric’s 2 years ago at a cycling event at The Miller School. Eric was instantly attracted to Donna. They both were serious cyclist and that love was very obvious at their wedding. So much so, that along with wedding rings they exchanged their I.D. bracelets that cyclists often wear incase they get injured.
I love all the cycling details that Donna & Eric had come up with. You will see in my photos just some of those. One of my favorites was the wedding cake that was made by a friend of theirs. He incorporated gears from a bike into the cake stand! Donna had bike wheels hanging as the back drop behind their wedding cake that were adorned with some flowers. Guests seating charts were also attached to bike wheels with cloth pins. And of course, my favorite, using a Tandem bicycle built for two as their get away car fully attached with cans dragging behind it as they rode off.

Congratulations to Hannah & Steve who were married at Keswick Vineyards on Saturday, June 27th. At their rehearsal the night before, Hannah had pretty much given in to the fact that it was going to rain on her wedding day. With the weather forecasting a 90% chance of rain, it was almost a sure thing. Hannah was determined to be married in front of Edgewood Estate by the vineyard so she put her rain plan into affect. She purchased some really cute rain boots for her and her bridesmaids to wear. She rented an additional tent to house her outdoor ceremony under. Everything was all set for her “rain” wedding day. So, Saturday comes and guess what? Yes, Hannah & Steve woke to rain that morning BUT by mid day, the rain went away! It was amazing to watch the radar as the storms seem to part and go around Keswick Vineyards. I’ve seen this many times and couldn’t of been more happy for Hannah & Steve. So, no cute rain boots were needed and instead of the tent being used to protect the guests from rain during the ceremony, it was used to shade them from the sun! Steve told me after the ceremony that he kept telling Hannah it wasn’t going to rain and boy was he right. Way to call it Steve!
