Plan B | Veronica & Ben

Whenever a wedding couple chooses to have an outdoor wedding they should always have a “Plan B” ready to go in case Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.  Thankfully, Veronica & Ben chose Keswick Vineyards to host their wedding at on Saturday, June 2nd, and still got to have their dream wedding despite the rain.

Keswick Vineyards prides itself with having a flawless rain plan for our couples.  Being that we already have a tent onsite for the reception, we just move everything under the tent to stay dry.  Having an astro-turf flooring still gives the couple an “outdoor” look and feel to their ceremony and having no walls allows the outdoors to still be seen.  As you can see by these photos, Veronica and Ben still had a beautiful, outdoor wedding.  I just love the special look Veronica gave to her father just as she was married.  All throughout this wedding you could see the special bond these two share.

With a break in the rain, Veronica and Ben were able to take a variety of pictures outside including one in front of the fountain which was their original ceremony location.  The positive to having a wedding on a cloudy, overcast day is the lighting for your photos.  Ask any photographer out there, and they will tell you they would take a cloudy, overcast day over a bright, sunny day any time.  This allows the photographer to take pictures at any location in any direction and not have to worry about shadows at all.  I can’t wait to see their professional photos!

The remainder of the night was spent with laughter, sipping on our award-winning wines, and dancing. In case anyone wanted to “kick off their heels,” the couple provided flip flops to relieve their feet from the amount of dancing that occurred. As you can tell, even when you have to use your Plan B, it can still provide you with your dream wedding and be an extremely fun-filled day, where no one leaves disappointed. Congratulations to Veronica and Ben!
