How to make the most out of your Keswick Vineyards Wedding

How to make the most out of your Keswick Vineyards wedding

Choosing Keswick Vineyards for your Northern Virginia wedding could not be a better choice! Surrounded by the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains and the historic Castle Hill, Keswick Vineyards’ star quality lies within its rolling vineyard hills and stately grounds that span several acres. They’ve hosted more than 400 weddings since 2010 and are women-owned, so you are in good hands with this venue. 

Before I go any further, please let me congratulate you on your engagement. I am thrilled for you to experience the beauty of marriage! I also feel for you, as I know how stressful wedding planning can be. I’ve been there, but I am here to help. Now that you’ve chosen Keswick Vineyards for your special day, I’d love to show you how to make the most out of your Northern Virginia wedding. Check out my thoughts below. 

Take advantage of its spacious views

There are countless ways to hold your ceremony at Keswick Vineyards. If you want a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the estate’s grounds, a ceremony at the beautiful fountain in the front of the home is your best bet. Or maybe you prefer saying your vows underneath the ground’s 300-year-old historic oak tree. You can also utilize its gorgeous vineyards as your backdrop, allowing your guests to hear the faint but relaxing dribble of the fountain in the distance. 

Create an experience your guests will love

What I love most about this venue is its ability to transform into any vision a couple may have. I’ve seen couples create outdoor living rooms at Keswick Vineyards for their cocktail hour (big, plush couches atop vintage rugs with cozy blankets scattered all around), expansive farm table seating underneath the venue’s vast, white tent, and a memory table filled with family and friend photos underneath the venue’s bright white gazebo. 

Because this Northern Virginia wedding venue has so much space to use, you can truly transform it into what your heart desires!

Utilize everything their rental package has to offer

Keswick Vineyards has it all when it comes to your Northern Virginia wedding. This outdoor wedding venue can hold up to 200 guests, allowing you to invite all your loved ones! It offers a gorgeous, white tent for a shaded reception, an expansive dance floor, heaters and fans for optimal guest comfort, and even a catering tent. What I love most about this venue is the option to use their tables and chairs; they have both banquet and round tables to use, with the chairs to match!

The main house features a bridal suite, groom’s room, full kitchen, and unisex bathrooms, ensuring your guests have what they need. They even allow you to use some of their décor items like wine barrels, drapery for the tent, and a variety of lighting options for the dance floor, gazebo, and perimeter. 

Hire a photographer who knows the space

I know Keswick Vineyards in and out, and it’s one of my favorite locations to shoot for a Northern Virginia wedding. I pride myself on capturing the most important memories of your special day, and I’d love to be considered for your wedding photography needs.
