A Peruvian Party! | Joshua & Vanessa
Congratulations to our Friday, June 7th wedding couple, Vanessa & Joshua. Unlike many of our couples, Vanessa & Joshua decided to do a traditional ceremony off-site at a church. They still started their day at Keswick Vineyards getting ready and taking some photos but left in the afternoon to say their “I do’s”. Since they did their ceremony off-site, they decided to have their cocktail hour in front of the estate taking full advantage of the backdrop of mountains, fountain, vineyard and of course, Edgewood Estate. As their vintage car from Albemarle Limousine pulled up to the front of the Estate, we couldn’t help but to quickly capture that moment with a photo. That white, vintage car in front of the Estate is such a classic look. LOVE IT!
As guests moved from cocktail hour to the Aurora reception tent, a wine barrel table displaying escort cards was waiting to direct them to their table. Later in the evening, this wine barrel table was used again as a bourbon, cigar bar. Way to re-purpose it!
With Vanessa’s father originally being from Peru, Joshua even proposed to Vanessa in Peru while they were visiting Machu Picchu, we knew it was just a matter of time before the Peruvian side would emerge. Towards the end of the evening they began something called la hora loca, or crazy hour, that they do for the last hour of a wedding. During this final hour guest put on masks, wear lights, have noisemakers, and really let loose! Then, what better way to close out a wedding then to have a sparkler departure!
Thank you to all the vendors who helped make this beautiful wedding come to life!
