This Vineyard Picnic E-sesh is Everything

Having had experienced the magic that is Charlottesville I totally get why these Californians opted for a vineyard e-sesh there. For not only can I can attest to how incredibly captivating this place is, it’s also got wine that is simply put: delish. Thanks Hedge Fine Blooms and Top Knot Studio for creating the pretty, because we’ve got this e-sesh from Michael and Carina Photography to share. See it all in The Vault!

From Michael and Carina PhotographyFor thousands of years, wine has been associated with romance – and no wonder! Rachele and Justin’s love of wines is matched only by their love of each other. It was such a joy to photograph their engagement session at Keswick Vineyards, one of our favorite wineries & locations in Virginia!

From The Bride…Justin proposed in San Francisco and we spent our engagement weekend celebrating in Napa Valley, so I wanted to have our engagement photos taken on a vineyard to tie it all together! We went to the rustic yet very elegant Keswick Vineyards in Charlottesville, VA where we started off with a wine picnic (something Justin & I love to do together). Everything in our picnic was from a local Charlottesville market that we picked up that day, including the bouquet made by a local florist. Another detail that I love when looking at the photos is the wine corks on the cheese knives are meaningful to us – one is from the bottle we had in San Francisco the day we got engaged, and the other is from a bottle we brought back from Napa and shared with our parents to celebrate our engagement! It was important for us to include some extra meaningful details into our pictures. We had a great time turning our engagement session into a date together and truly had so much fun, although I’m sure the wine helped!

From Audra WrisleyThis stunning jewel toned wedding at Khimaira Farms was set in front of a mountainous landscape in Luray, Virginia. Using wildflowers to accentuate the natural beauty of the landscape, the goat farm’s rustic barn proved the perfect backdrop for an amazing wedding day. The bride’s trumpet style Nicole Miller gown was a chic and classic silhouette, as well as the deep purple and teal green bridesmaid dresses. The evening’s cocktail hour began with a baby goat visiting the guests, and concluded with many joy-filled toasts.

From Abby Jiu PhotographyOn a gorgeous spring day, Jennifer and Jeffrey were married on her father’s personal estate, Jessamine Farm, near the Little Inn of Washington in Washington, VA. The 75 acre estate offered beautiful views of the Blueridge Mountains, and the property itself simply accentuated the natural beauty around them. The ceremony was held on the front porch which had a long staircase that was adorned with green garland and a beautiful statement of peonies and roses. A fox statue at the bottom of the staircase, adorned with a flower wreath, played to the farm background of the property and the fox motif was carried throughout the invitations and escort cards. Jennifer and her father were brought to the ceremony on a horse-drawn carriage, which Jennifer and Jeff later exited on as husband and wife.

Guests were greeted with watermelon quenchers as they arrived, and cocktails were later served on the back veranda where guests could mingle or explore the historic property and gardens. The reception was held under a cloth tent, which was decorated with lush greenery and bright coral and pink flowers. The guests danced the night away with laughter and smiles. Desserts were later served poolside before the couple exited under a canopy of sparklers.
