How Harry Met Mandy | Amanda & Harry
We welcomed May with Amanda and Harry for our first wedding of the month! Amanda and Harry are a couple I will never forget. When Harry and his family walked into my office, my first though was, which one is the bride? The answer took me by surprise. Amanda was in Singapore for work at the time and she sent Harry to dive into wedding plans on their behalf. For all of you couples out there you can imagine how impressive (and stressful) that can be on a guy! But, low and behold, he handled it well and chose not only the perfect venue, but the perfect date as well!
Simplicity was key here, but all of their details were definitely done right! When you start with a beautiful location, not much else is needed to supplement the picturesque grounds you have to work with. The couple really paid attention to that and showcased Keswick Vineyards simply for what it is… breathtaking!
They had a unique ceremony location (a first here at the vineyard for us) which angled their guests with sweeping vineyard and mountain views. Playing softly in the background was Gallatin Canyon, a bluegrass acoustic ensemble. They continued beats with their banjo throughout cocktail hour as well. Truly a crowd pleaser!
Underneath of the Sperry tent, bistro lights swept the ceiling creating a more romantic and fairytale feel. When guests weren't enjoying the "starry night" atmosphere within the tent, dining on Harvest Moon's delicious food, or dancing the night away they snuck to our Gazebo for some photo booth fun! Those always are a huge hit and leave the couple and their guest with even more lasting memories.
