Another First! | Joshua & David

On Sunday, November 5th, Joshua and David were married at Keswick Vineyards.  Joshua and David chose to have their ceremony on the front porch of Edgewood Estate.  This was the very first time in 7 years that a couple decided on this location. What made this location even more special was their grand entrance.

The wedding party made their way to the aisle by alternating which side of the fountain they would walk on.  There was a dramatic delay when, all of a sudden, you could hear a car approaching from the private drive way.  Joshua and David were driven to the top of the fountain by a private car. When they exited, they each walked on opposite sides of the fountain.  When they met in the middle they joined hands and walked the aisle together to the alter. LOVED IT!!!!!!

Joshua was a hands-on groom and did most of the decorating himself.  I just love some of his ideas. The first one was an item he had on the welcome table.  He had created a memorable frame thing that had cute little items on displayed like concert tickets, love letters, places they had been to, etc.  This gave all guests a little glimpse into their dating life. Very clever.

The other decorating item he did was to hang mason jars from our giant, 300+ year old oak tree with lights in them.  It reminded me of a scene from the Disney movie, Tangled. He threw balls of twine up and over the branches of the tree and then hung the mason jars at different heights.  Hard to really appreciate how beautiful it looked at night from my photos so you will just have to take my word for it. He also attached a “love” sign to the trunk of the oak tree and hung some battery-operated string lights in nearby small trees.

Guests enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner followed by dancing the night away.  And, when taking a break from dancing, guests could take some funny photos in the photo booth to create a memory album for the couple.
