Allison and Rob’s elegant Keswick Vineyards wedding was a lively celebration nestled into rolling farmland valleys and pristine vineyard rows. Sky blue gowns and suave deep blue tailored suits popped against the earliest hints of autumn whispering in the estate’s gold and orange trees.
Wedding planners from Little Acorn Events orchestrated the late-September Charlottesville wedding, arranging a beautiful ceremony in front of the vineyard’s lavish flowing fountain and a heartfelt sunset reception under the grand hand-stitched Aurora tent. Harpist Virginia Schweninger set the ceremony tone as a tearful groom lovingly watched his fiancé make her way down the aisle.
Ashley Eagleson Photography crafted a balanced timeline, allowing for beloved candids of guests and breathtaking newlywed golden hour portraits. The bride and groom took time to mingle, drink and hug their favorite people as cocktail hour unfolded on the green carriage house lawn. Photographers caught the sweetest sentiments in the groom’s grandmother helping him with his boutonnière before the first look and the couple sharing private vows among vibrant grapevine rows.
Charlottesville wedding floral designers from Colonial Florist produced sophisticated arrangements in romantic ivory bouquets, coordinating with MS Events to set an exquisite reception space decked in steel blue and ivory linens, gilded flatware, strung twinkle lighting, floating candles and delicate leafing. Harvest Moon Catering impressed with polished service and a plated regionally sourced feast while Sugar on Top Cakes’ three-tiered masterpiece was met with an elaborate dessert buffet of cookies, macaroons, biscotti and chocolate-covered delights.
