2019 Wedding Season Begins! (and it's AMAZING) | Miranda & Thomas

On Saturday, April 13th, Keswick Vineyards started its 9th wedding season with the marriage of Miranda & Thomas.  Mother Nature did not disappoint this couple at all. What started with a cloudy, overcast day ended with the sun popping thru the clouds just as they said their I Do’s and that sunset, AMAZING!!!!!! I sure wish I could clone this wedding day for all our future weddings.

The décor that Miranda and Thomas did for their wedding sure made our new Aurora tent look its best.  With the blue and white color scheme, the tent took on a nautical feel. I love how they incorporated both rectangular and round tables for their reception; a look I will recommend to future couples.

Miranda and Thomas didn’t start planning their wedding until January 2019.  That only gave them four months to do it. They put together an amazing team of vendors including Exchange Events Catering and DJ TD Layman of Sound Enforcement.  Both these vendors are on our preferred list and I think Miranda and Thomas now know why. Their wedding was perfect! I just love how Exchange Events Catering is ready to greet the wedding couple right after their ceremony with trays of appetizers!

Some of my favorite details from this wedding were how they used wine bottles to display table assignments.  Using different shapes and colors to create the labels made it a little more interesting to look at. Having the guest book on the same table made it very easy so no guests would miss either important detail.

And take a look at those desserts!

Miranda’s Mother made them all.  I have to admit that I couldn’t resist trying one of those Belgium brownies.  OK, not one, perhaps two but that chocolate flavor was to die for, and I just couldn’t help myself.

And finally, my favorite part had to be when Miranda did her toast.  Her toast explained the meaning behind the names they had to identify each guest table so as she told the story, each table would let out a cheer when she would mention it.  An example was having a table named for the place Thomas works at. Seated at that table were people he worked with. Another table was for the neighborhood Miranda grew up in with guests from that neighborhood seated there.  It was just a nice way for everyone to learn a little more about Miranda and Thomas to make this wedding more personable for everyone attending.
