Williamsburg Winery (WW) offered a beautiful indoor ceremony and reception setting on their historic 300 acre farm. The couple had planned for an outdoor ceremony, but with a game day decision due to wet weather an indoor ceremony was VERY well played! Flowers, candles, string lights, and guests filled the room with all the ingredients needed for a perfect ceremony. The room was transformed into a spacious reception site during the cocktail hour. WW allowed us special access to the wine cellar for a vibrant photo shoot!
The B & G were traditional and choose not to do a first look, but they did do a first shot of bourbon. After the bourbon was dug out of the ground, we got creative and sequestered two glasses and a door as a partition. They had a minute to hold hands and share a moment together before she met him at the end of the aisle. So, what’s all the buzz about with a buried bottle of bourbon? It’s a Southern folklore which states that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at the site where the couple are to be married it won’t rain on their wedding day. Don’t rush to the shed for the shovel quite yet – there are guidelines to follow, for instance, it should be done exactly one month before the wedding, it should be buried upside down and COMPLETELY FULL. Following these guidelines should ensure a no rain wedding day.
