Ryder/Ryder is Ready/Ready! | Trish & Sam
Traditionally here at Keswick Vineyards we have happy couples come to us excited and newly engaged. They take the typical one year journey into their planning process and leave on their big day as newlyweds beginning to embark on one of the greatest journeys of life. Our wedding this past weekend mixed up this routine with us and it was wildly refreshing. Sam and Trish had been married for years prior to coming to see us. Both of them being active duty in the military, they never fully had the opportunity to host their dream wedding…until recently! We’ve had this wedding on our calendar (with many different dates) for quite some time. Deployments and their duties for our country seemed to always push back their date further and further, but this year on August 15th they finally were able to come together and have the vow renewal they have long dreamed for.
It was truly a family affair. Sam’s father officiated the ceremony because…well…it was already official! The couple re-declared their love with sweeping mountain views and the sun shining. Their cousin serenaded guests with the violin and even their Aunt contributed in making absolutely delicious desserts to send the crowd home with a sugar high! It was a celebration we’ve been greatly looking forward to and are so happy to have shared with them. Congratulations (again) to Sam and Trish Ryder!
