A Beautiful Fall Wedding for Lauren & David!
Lauren & David really hit the jackpot when it comes to weather. They had one of the most perfect fall days to be married outside to. On Saturday, October 25th, Lauren & David were married at Keswick Vineyards. The sun was out shining to keep everyone nice and warm while enjoying the spectacular fall colors in the vineyard and mountain side.
I love how they had their Yorkie dog in the ceremony. He was just adorable in his tuxedo! The wedding ceremony was extra special. Their officiant was very close friend of theirs that Lauren had asked to marry them even before she was ordained as a minister. Love the personal touch that adds to the ceremony.
After spending time out in the vineyard for photos, Lauren & David returned to the Sperry tent for their reception and enjoyed some amazing food by BBQ Exchange. The short ribs were out of this world! DJ John Garland kept the party going while guests danced the night away.

Virginia & Patrick's Non-Stop Dancing Wedding
What a fairy tale wedding Virginia & Patrick had on Saturday, October 18th.
Ginny spent her morning getting ready at Keswick Vineyards for her off site church ceremony. She and her bridesmaids were swept away in a super stretch Hummer limousine and a vintage car. Ginny in her princess style wedding dress matched perfectly with that vintage car. It really was a fairytale as she left to meet her Prince Charming at the church. When they came back, they were husband and wife and were ready to party with their guests.
Virginia and Patrick chose the front of Edgewood Estate as the location for their cocktail hour. Guests enjoyed themselves as they mingled with one another while enjoying the beautiful fall view of the mountains and vineyard. Guests quickly warmed up once inside the heated Sperry tent that was decorated with hanging bistro lights through out the tent. C&O catering did an outstanding job keeping everything on schedule and serving such delicious meals.
Once dinner was over, this group was up on the dance floor and didn’t come off for 3 hours! There was just non-stop dancing for this wedding and what a fun night it was for everyone!

Lauren & Justin's Wedding!
On Sunday, October 12th, Lauren & Justin were married at Keswick Vineyards by the former Mayor of Charlottesville, Dave Norris. The ceremony was simply beautiful with the Southwestern Mountain backdrop adorn with the start of fall colors. To top of the ceremony, Lauren's brother played a beautiful song on his guitar. Afterwards, while the guests were enjoying cocktail hour, the entire wedding party had some fun taking group photos. As you can see, the guys really were a bunch of super hero hams! I had just as much fun with the girls but those photos were taken on their camera so I can't share them but trust me, they were hilarious! Guest dined on some delicious food prepared by BBQ Exchange and danced the night away under the direction of DJ Dennis Payne. I love how the couple through out the evening would take their own "selfies" to remember their special moments.

Bethany & Ruben's "Dog" Wedding
Bethany & Ruben’s wedding ceremony definitely went to the dogs! On Saturday, October 11th, Bethany & Ruben were married at Keswick Vineyards surrounded by family, friends and LOTS of dogs! This is the first time that I have seen a precession with a dog accompanying each wedding party couple. These dogs did an amazing job and were so good for photos. Scraps, our local mascot wedding cat, wasn’t as thrilled with these four dogs being here. Thankfully we put her away while they were here or we really could of had some excitement! Ruben is quiet the dancer. He definitely wins the award for being on the dance floor the most. You could just tell he loved it. I really enjoyed it when the DJ and Ruben were getting down with their dance moves. Bethany made good usage of wine corks that I haven’t seen used this way. She put a hole through the cork and then tied a ribbon to a label that had the guests name on it at each table setting. Simple yet very nice for a little winery touch to the decor. I also really liked the plaid shirts the guys wore with their suits. The purple colors mixed with grey just look so rich together. And lets not forget about desserts! So may different types of cupcakes to pick from and a lovely wedding cake with, of course, dogs on top of it!

Christine & Bill's Wedding Day
Congratulations to Christine & Bill who were married at Keswick Vineyards on Saturday, October 4th. With this being the first wedding for our fall season, Mother Nature provided us with beautiful blue skies with a crisp chill in the air. For the ceremony Christine & Bill included the blending of two sand colors to represent the blending of two into one. I love the containers they had for this.
