It's all in the Little Details | Bethann & Graham

Bethann & Graham were not going to chance any bad weather on their wedding day.  They did the old Southern tradition of burying a bottle of bourbon, upside down, exactly a month before their wedding day and it worked!  On Saturday, August 19th, the weather was just perfect for an all outdoor ceremony/wedding at Keswick Vineyards located just outside Charlottesville, VA.

Bethann LOVES flowers and you could definitely tell that when you saw her florals.  Hanging over their head table was a ladder that was just covered with greenery and flowers.  What a statement it made for their reception.  She was so excited when she saw her bouquet.  It’s so nice to witness the reaction when a bride sees her bouquet for the first time; priceless!

I know flowers were most important to Bethann but my favorite feature from her wedding was the sign they had made that was displayed at the cocktail bar describing their signature drinks.  Sometimes it’s those little details that can make all the difference.

The other detail that I loved was the party favors for guest to take.  They had a bucket full of iced, shortbread cookies in a variety of designs like a wine bottle, the State of Virginia, saying thank you.  Again, those little details stand out.

And finally, the food!  C&O prepared food that was nothing less than delicious!  Food was served in a buffet line but to add just a little detail to that, they had a server dishing out portions to the guests as they made their way through the buffet line.  Another nice little touch.
