A Lively Magical Fall Keswick Vineyards Wedding

Hunter and Nicole’s Keswick Vineyards wedding was a lively celebration. As you see some of their wedding photos, you’ll notice that their energy and laughter are infectious! From the moment Nicole stepped into the bridal suite, to the end of the reception there was nothing but pure laughter and joy!

It was important to Hunter and Nicole that they had time to celebrate with guests and didn’t spend the whole afternoon taking portraits. After the ceremony, we quickly took family pictures and then wandered to the vineyard for newlywed pictures. I try to stress that I never want a wedding to feel like a photoshoot and want my couples to spend more time with their guests than they do with me.

Don’t get me wrong. If I could take portraits for hours, I would. However, at the heart of a wedding isn’t taking time for photos. At the heart of a wedding is two people committing to each other for life while being surrounded by all their loved ones from different stages in their life. A photographer is there to highlight and document this moment, not take away from the bride and groom being able to spend time with guests.

Keswick Vineyards is so lovely because everything is all in one place and every corner is jaw-dropping! This made moving from one location to another really smooth and allowed us to be done with portraits relatively quickly so Hunter and Nicole could enjoy their party! Their reception kicked off with first dances followed by toasts that had everyone chuckling.

Hunter and Nicole, I hope these photos can remind you of the love and joy that surrounded you on the day you finally joined hands in marriage!

Before we finished portraits, Hunter and Nicole took a picture of each other on my camera. I think a new tradition has been born amongst AE Couples. While I ADORE and love the beautiful romantic bride and groom portraits, nothing can compare to how you each see and capture each other.Bride taking photo of groom.
