A Little Touch of Italy | Marissa & Connor

Keswick Vineyards had the pleasure of celebrating Marissa and Connor’s wedding on Saturday, September 21st, 2019. What a fun group they were! Friends and fun were definitely the most important things for this couple and boy did they have a lot of friends! Their wedding party was not small by any measure. How wonderful to have so many of their friends stand with them at their gorgeous ceremony. It was another beautiful day for their ceremony with the sun shining and a few puffy clouds in the sky. The arbor they rented from us was decorated flawlessly by Faded Poppy (I love the drapery!!).

At the reception their large wedding party all sat together creating one of the largest head tables we have ever seen! This was a really great look made possible by renting elegant farm tables from MSEvents and accenting them with long garland. This created an almost Tuscan style reception with one long table seating so many people. You have to love the bold place settings as well; what a great contrast against the natural wood.

To continue this Italian theme, the couple had Exchange Events create an Italian menu including Chicken Parmesan, Pasta, Risotta with Shrimp, and the most amazing meatballs (my new favorite appetizer!).  So, don’t think Exchange Events is limited to the best barbecue you could possibly eat; they do so much more!

My favorite part about the reception though had to be the Pittsburgh Cookie Table. We have seen more of these lately as the trend grows, where the couple and the family bring dozens (and dozens!) of homemade cookies and spread them out on a table for dessert (the coconut ones were my favorite). The night concluded with everyone dancing the night away under the beautiful bistro lights in the Aurora tent.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this wedding so much fun!
