The Sweetest Thing! | Lyndsay & Rick
It’s hard to beat the beauty of a fall October day in Virginia. Anyone who works in the wedding business knows how crazy busy it is for us. On top of having triple weddings every weekend in October, I have numerous birthdays in our family. This year, our youngest was turning 16. I happened to mention it to this bride, Lyndsey, when she did her final walk thru. I mentioned how long her wedding weekend would be for me because not only did I have 3 weddings, but also had a Sweet 16 birthday to celebrate. So, what did Lyndsey do the day before her wedding as if she had nothing else to do? She baked my daughter her favorite flavor of cupcakes with whip cream frosting (her favorite again) and brought them to her rehearsal along with a card. Wow! Do I not have the best couples and families getting married here? I couldn’t believe she remembered something I just mentioned as small talk and then took the time to make my daughter’s birthday even more special. Thank you so much Lyndsey for your thoughtfulness! Its the sweetest thing!
Lyndsey & Rick were married on Friday, October 20, 2017 at Keswick Vineyards. The weather was something a couple would pray for. Simply perfect! Lyndsey and Rick chose to get married in what we call our “fall” location. We nick named it that because of the panoramic views you have and in the fall, they are hard to beat. Accentuating the view, Lyndsey’s father made these doors that were used as a backdrop for their ceremony. After the ceremony, they were moved to the reception to be placed behind the couple chairs.
Lyndsey & Rick decided to do the “wine box” tradition during their ceremony. Rick added his personal touch to what was included in the box. Most people place a nice bottle of red wine in it. Not Rick. He is a bourbon guy so besides the bottle of wine he also added a nice bottle of bourbon!
For the reception, a chandelier was hung just over the dance floor. This is one of my favorite looks because it is so pretty to see the couple do their first dance under it. A very long head table with farm tables was also used. And, one of my favorite little detail from this wedding, pretzels that were decorated to be a bride and groom were at each place setting. They are adorable!
Another successful wedding thanks to the magical team of:
