On a lovely afternoon in late October at the historic Keswick Vineyards, Jennifer and Brian exchanged vows and celebrated the beginning of their journey as husband and wife. Their beautiful wedding, coordinated by Adam Donovan-Groves of Donovan-Groves Events, exuded timeless elegance with touches of playfulness.
While preparing for her wedding day at Keswick Hall & Golf Club, Jennifer choose sparkling sapphire Kate Spade heels and an elegant Vera Wang gown. Her bridesmaids wore blush-colored gowns in different complementary styles.
Brian wore a navy blue Joseph Abboud tuxedo, and he and his groomsmen sported baby blue polka-dotted bow ties and pastel boutonnieres.
Sacred Ground Ceremonies joined the couple in front of Keswick Vineyard’s grapevines. Jennifer’s gorgeous bouquet by Pat’s Floral Design of succulents, garden roses and pastel-colored florals perfectly complemented her gown’s lace details.
During cocktail hour, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed artisan drinks and hors d’oeuvres by Harvest Moon Catering. These drinks included The Virginia Gentlemen, a drink named after the University of Virginia’s A cappella group, who also performed live during the cocktail hour.
Cream candles and floral plates on gold-rimmed chargers in the reception tent added to the wedding’s elegant ambiance. Pale pink flowers and navy serviettes effortlessly incorporated the bride and groom’s color palette and menus, printed by Rock Paper Scissors, gave guests a sneak peak of the delicious meal to come.
Following dinner, the evening was filled with love as guests toasted the newlyweds and danced to music by JG Entertainment. Cakes by Rachel’s stunning three-tier cake was the perfect addition to the decor.
Later, Brian and Jennifer ended the magical night with a sparkler-lined exit. Friends and family cheered on as the couple embraced, celebrating their new life together as husband and wife.
From the perfect October sunset to the a capella performance, the couple’s wedding was an enchanting celebration, sure to be remembered fondly by all.
