With a romantic garden atmosphere, a handsome Groom (rocking pink tie made by his Mother-in-Law!), and an ombre of Bridesmaids in soft blush hues, and you know this winery wedding is going to be an affair to remember. Filled with vintage details, like antique rentals from Paisley & Jade, as well as fun, retro touches, like after-dancing donuts (!), we can’t get enough of Nikki Santerre‘s gorgeous gallery right here.
From Nikki Santerre Photography…Intimate. Timeless. Romantic. Those are the words that come to mind when I think about Amy and Brent’s wedding day. Amy’s attention to detail were both exquisite and evident in every aspect of her day at Keswick Vineyard, the location of both their wedding and one of their first dates three years before.
From The Bride… Brent and I met twelve years ago at Virginia Tech. He was my first college crush but the timing was never quite right for us. A couple of relationships and eight years later, we reconnected at our friends’ wedding. A year later we went wine tasting with that same couple. The first winery on the tour was Keswick Vineyards. Little did we know we would be getting married at that same winery three years later!
After we settled on Keswick Vineyards as our location, everything else fell into place. The beautiful Edgewood Estate offered an elegant and classic backdrop that fit my style completely. I incorporated details that reinforced the vintage theme: low centerpieces in milk glass vases, old decanters and a wooden mantle at the altar. The neutral color palette with hints of pink and gold added a touch of classic romance and vintage furniture from Paisley and Jade helped tie the look together.
My bridesmaids looked beautiful in long chiffon mismatched Lela Rose dresses and I wore a Sarah Seven gown that Sarah herself helped me pick out! To add a personal touch, my mom handmade my belt and birdcage veil, as well as the ties for Brent and his groomsmen.
The best part of the day, by far, was our first look. Being able to see and talk to Brent before the ceremony helped calm my nerves. That quiet moment alone before walking down the aisle is something I will never forget!
The day was a whirlwind and the reception went by so quickly! We loved laughing and dancing all night with our friends and family. When they weren’t on the dance floor, our guests were relaxing on lounge furniture under bistro lights while they enjoyed the cigar bar and delicious organic donuts from Carpe Donut. We finished off the night with a sparkler exit and a getaway in a classic, vintage car.
We wanted our wedding day to be filled with love and laughter; the day to be romantic and classic, full of our favorite people and all of our favorite things. In the end, that is exactly what it was and every detail was captured perfectly by our amazing photographer, Nikki.
