Bridal Portrait at Keswick Vineyards

Happy Monday! You may have seen Fayette’s beautiful couture dress from Belle Vie Bridal Couture in our last few posts from her wedding at Keswick Vineyards. We wanted to put it in the spotlight a bit more because it is so stunning! Earlier this season, Aaron spent the afternoon with Fayette and her mom photographing her Bridal Portraits. We are so excited to share some pictures from her bridal portrait session especially since we’ve had to keep them a surprise until after the wedding! The shape, detail and impeccable design by Amsale had everyone “oh-ing” and “ah-ing” at the wedding and she looked gorgeous!

Have a dress of your own that you love? We highly recommend taking Bridal Portraits! Not only does it allow you to wear your dress at least twice, but you’ll have beautiful pictures to display at your wedding and enjoy long after!

Fayette and Mark sure know how to have a good time! At their peacock inspired wedding at Keswick Vineyards we had the pleasure of photographing their friends and family celebrating late into the evening. After a lovely ceremony (be sure to check out Fayette & Mark’s Jewish Wedding Ceremony if you haven’t already), Aaron took Fayette and Mark out to take some portraits in the vineyard. Meanwhile, cocktail hour was in full swing underneath the beautiful tent from  Skyline Tent Co! We couldn’t get enough of the delicious food provided by Harvest Moon at the reception. Instead of the traditional sit-down dinner, Fayette and Mark chose to do have buffet-style finger food complete with lobster rolls and mini hamburgers. We loved this relaxed twist on a formal dinner!

Some of our favorite moments were being able to photograph Fayette and Mark during a quiet moment at sunset as well as do a more stylized night photo. Fayette had seen a previous picture involving candles and to re-create it in their own unique way, Aaron took them out by the pool and created a magical scene. We always enjoy when our couples are willing to be a bit adventurous!

Of course it wouldn’t be a Jewish wedding without the Hora, a traditional Jewish dance where the bride and groom are lifted up on chairs while guests cheer for them. This ritual had the whole family involved and caused a lot of laughter, followed by lots of dancing throughout the night! Enjoy looking through part 2 of Fayette and Mark’s wedding pictures!
