Kate and Seth’s winter wedding at King Family Vineyards was absolutely gorgeous! I am so blown away by how romantic these wedding pictures are. I am usually not a fan of cold weather, but I would brave the chilly temperatures if I could get pictures like these! The frostiness of the scenery gave the whole wedding a mystical feel, and they carried the winter theme inside with the help of Amy Webb from Blue Ridge Floral Design and their wedding coordinator Colleen Miller. Their reception looked like a winter wonderland, I am in LOVE with the sparkly candles they set up everywhere, they’re perfect!
Kate’s dress is so beautiful, and is made even more so because she got it at Church Street Bridal. Church Street Bridal is a wedding gown shop that combines wedding dresses with philanthropy. Designers and shops donate new wedding dresses to Church Street, and when a bride purchases her dress from there, the money from the sale is donated to the Young Women’s Christian Association. The YWCA has a wide range of programs in place that help women and children, like the Domestic Violence Prevention Center and Ygyrl Leaders Mentoring for Teens. We are going to do a more extensive post on Church Street Bridal soon, but I wanted to mention it because I think it’s such a great way to help your community!
Okay, now back to the prettiness of Kate and Seth’s wedding day! Speaking of pretty things, you may notice the diamond horseshoe on Kate’s bouquet and on their wedding cake by Paradox Pastry. They added this detail because Kate loves horses, and Seth is a farrier! What a neat way to incorporate that aspect of their lives into their wedding. Kate had a dessert table for their guests to enjoy, and some thank you boxes for them to fill up and take home as favors. I have been told that the chocolate covered pretzels were incredibly delicious. Derek Tobler was a phenomenal DJ as usual, and helped the guests get down to the cupid shuffle. All the guests made sure to show off their best moves, and a few of them borrowed props from the Crazybooth to give them an extra edge. Good call in my opinion! A feather boa adds to any occasion.
The lace wrap around the stems of Kate’s bouquet is from her Grandmother’s & Mother’s wedding dresses fashioned with a horseshoe pin.
