Beating the Heat BOHO style! | Jamie & Hunter
Saturday, August 17th, was a bit hotter than usual as Jamie and Hunter tied the knot and celebrated their beautiful union at Keswick Vineyards. Hunter wanted his guests to be as comfortable as possible, especially “Nana”, and their original ceremony location had everyone sitting in the sun. With quick thinking and an unmatched eye for beauty, owner of Keswick Vineyards, Cindy Schornberg, converted a little forest grove on the grounds into a stunning, shaded BOHO ceremony site! All the guests were seated in the shade and Nana had a front row view of her grandson marrying the love of his life. Using our wooden pergola, two wine barrels, rugs rented from Paisley & Jade and some Bohemian florals from Colonial Florist, this little wooded and mossy grove was totally transformed! I think we will call this our Enchanted Forest location.
After the ceremony, guests continued over to cocktail hour where they again enjoyed the shade of the trees while still having beautiful garden, vineyard and mountain views. Here they were entertained by a wonderful bluegrass band, The Harwell Grice Band, who kept the atmosphere fresh and upbeat! We absolutely love having talented musicians perform during ceremonies and cocktail hour.
In the evening, we had eight fans running through the tent keeping a nice breeze going. Tables were dismissed one by one to visit the incredible BBQ spread put on by Exchange Events. After dinner, the guests were treated to this beautiful, two-tier naked cake and an assortment of pies; including peach, Strawberry and chocolate, all beautifully arranged and presented in the gazebo, adjacent to our Aurora tent.
One of the coolest parts about this wedding was the photobooth! We’ve had lots of photobooths here at Keswick Vineyards but this one was totally different. The couple hired a photobooth trailer that backed right up to the Aurora tent where people would head inside and make all the fun and silly faces they wanted. What a hit this was with all the guests! Finishing out the night, Jamie and Hunter had yet another treat for their guests. They all were surprised when Chik-Fil-A delivered fresh chicken sandwiches to the reception for a late night snack!
Special Thanks to all the amazing vendors that helped put this wedding together!
