A Dapper Duo | Lauren & Derek
What happens when you combine the beautiful Keswick Vineyards and a stylish couple? The answer is Lauren and Derek’s wedding! On Saturday, June 3rd we welcomed the extremely dapper Derek and his lovely fiancé Lauren as they married here on a very perfect June day.
Being the owner of a tailored suit company in Charlottesville called Tailored Quest, we knew that the details of their affair would be ones to be remembered. We were in awe of the groom having a wardrobe change mid wedding, but that was just one surprise! The groom assembled a handmade pergola for their ceremony with a beautiful crystal chandelier suspended above them both as they said their “I do’s”. The structure was massive and helped frame their vineyard ceremony beautifully.
Lauren and Derek are both military. With that being said, they’re world travelers as well! For their guestbook they had their guests sign a globe for them to display in their home together. To continue along with their travel theme, guests found their seats by searching for the state they traveled from on the U.S. map. Once they found their home state, they’d find their name and which table to go to for reception. Clever!
When guests finally made their way to the reception, they were not disappointed. Lauren and Derek decked the tent out with bistro lights, draping, and (yes) another chandelier! It was a show stopper for sure. They ate, drank, and were merry and then it was time for toasts. Lauren and Derek brought Prosecco from their recent trip to Italy together and took part in their first Prosecco Tower pour as husband and wife. I must say…they nailed it!
Thank you to our vendors for helping send these travelers off to their honeymoon right!
