Congratulations

H

e popped the question, you said yes and the celebratory wine bottles are empty. Now it’s time to start planning your wedding, and one of the first major decisions is the venue. We asked brides across the country why they chose a Virginia winery venue for their wedding. Each answer shed light on the unique reasons why winery weddings rock. A beautiful, relaxed setting ranked high on the list. The natural beauty of a winery is enhanced with exquisite floral arrangements and bouquets. Inspiring floral photos and ideas start on page 26. Your wedding day is not complete without a celebration. The overall feel of a reception is determined by many factors, including lighting (page 36), musical entertainment (page 34) and dancing (page 33). A traditional reception timeline on page 32 provides a detailed schedule and overview to aide in your reception planning.

Why Choose a Winery

6  winery weddings  fall 2012


“My wedding guest list was spread far and wide. The 77 invitations I sent to 188 invitees went to 33 states and three countries, so I wanted to get married at a spectacular spot that everyone would enjoy visiting. My guests soaked in the beauty of the vineyards, the wonderful, local wine and the lovely building. They felt that they were somewhere special, not just in a generic hotel ballroom that could be found in any city or state. ~ Libby, Married at Barren Ridge Vineyards, a Kim Moody Design bride “Once we saw Potomac Point Winery’s gazebo, ballroom and Coyote Cave we knew it was the perfect place to say our ‘I do’s’!” ~ Susan, Married at Potomac Point Winery “When it came time to pick a wedding venue we searched for a location that offered an intimate feel where we could keep the guest list small and celebrate with those most dear to us.” ~ Katy, Married at Hillsborough Vineyards “While being so beautiful there is nothing stuffy or pretentious about Veritas Winery. The wine is delicious, the people are more than friendly and the view is stunning.” ~ Brooke, Married at Veritas Winery

Wedding...

Dominique Attaway Photography

“What I loved most about getting married at a winery was the beautiful, natural landscape that the vineyard provided. There was no need to go overboard with decorations because the vineyard was breathtaking on its own, especially at sunset. The other great thing about a winery wedding was the option to have the ceremony and reception in one place. With the reception upstairs above the tasting room we didn’t have to travel to a separate location, which was nice.” ~ Becky, Married at Barren Ridge Vineyards, a Kim Moody Design bride “We wanted an elegant, sophisticated, established and grown-up wedding venue with great food. Barboursville was the obvious decision.” ~ Lydia, Married at Barboursville Vineyards “For us, selecting our venue was the easiest choice we made in our wedding planning. Now we are can return whenever we want and spend a relaxing afternoon sipping delicious wine at our wedding venue.” ~ Stephanie, Married at Lost Creek Winery

Theme Ideas Interests

Genevieve Leiper Photography

E

very exceptional party has a theme, and a wedding is no different. A wedding theme personalizes the celebration from invitations to a bride and groom’s farewell. Keep your theme in mind when collaborating with caterers, florists, bakers and musicians to pull off an unforgettable wedding. The bride and groom should choose a theme that best suits them as a couple. Be creative when selecting a theme and consider the ideas below.

Love the movies? Enjoy a particular sport? Share a favorite food or wine? Transform mutual interests into a wedding theme.

Honor your heritage by incorporating cultural traditions into your wedding day. From a big fat Greek wedding to a Southern themed party, embrace your culture on this special occasion.

Location

A wine themed party at a winery makes perfect sense, but a beach or mountain themed winery wedding works just as well.

Colors

Colors representing a school, professional sports team or geographic location weave personal experiences into a wedding theme.

jewelry

Choose pearl or platinum jewelry to dress up a white gown or gold jewelry to sparkle in ivory.

NECKLACE

A bride’s necklace should complement the neckline of her dress. A thin chain with a simple pendant flatters a V-neck dress, a mulitstrand necklace accentuates a strapless gown and a collar necklace decorates a sweetheart dress.

hair

Brides can wear a hair piece such as a flower, decorative clip, sparkly bobby pins or tiara.

veil

Veils come in a variety of lengths. Some brush the shoulders or waist while others touch the fingertips or floor. Blushers cover the face and can be worn with any length veil.

belt

A stylish ribbon or jeweled belt draws attention to the waist.

gloves

Satin, lace or cotton gloves add a touch of elegance and glamour to the bride’s attire. White, elbow length gloves are more formal than wrist length or fingerless gloves.

shoes

When it comes to shoes the possibilities are endless, from high heels to elegant flip flops. Shoes can be personalized as little or as much as the bride chooses.

12  winery weddings  fall 2012


neckwear

Pair a bowtie or windsor tie with a tuxedo or a long tie with a suit.

cuff links

A groom can wear gold, silver or colored cuff links depending on the bride’s choice of jewelry. Personalized cuff links add a unique touch to the ensemble.

cummerbund

A cummerbund is worn around the waist in lieu of a vest.

vest

Traditional vests are white, black or gray; modern vests are colored. A vest and tie can match in color or complement each other.

belt

A suit isn’t complete without a fashionable belt. Choose the same color belt, shoes and watch band for a polished look.

watch

Formal celebrations call for a black leather watch or pocket watch. A gold or silver band can be worn if it doesn’t upstage the bride’s jewelry.

socks

Like a bride’s shoes, the possibilities are endless when it comes to a groom’s socks. He can wear black, colored or patterned socks and personalize them as much or as little as he chooses.

shoes

A groom should wear patent leather shoes with a tuxedo or dress shoes with a suit.

A Reception Timeline Wine (cocktail) Hour (0:00–1:00)

Newlywed’s Arrival (1:00–1:10)

First Dance (1:10-1:20)

After the ceremony the bridal party and relatives pose for the camera while guest drink wine and relax. If pictures were taken before the ceremony the bridal party can join in the “wine” hour as well.

When all guests are seated, the DJ or emcee announces the bride and groom’s parents, bridal party and new Mr. and Mrs. as they enter the reception hall.

Upon arrival to the reception, the bride and groom kick off the evening with their first dance as newlyweds. Couples who shy away from the spotlight can play a slideshow of photos during their first dance.

Blessing and Toast (1:20-1:30)

Eat, Drink and be Married (1:30-2:45)

Dancing (2:45-4:00)

Before the buffet line begins a family member of the bride or groom opens the celebration with a welcome speech, followed by a blessing over the food and a toast from the best man and maid of honor.

Dinner is served beginning with the bride, groom and bridal party. It’s recommended that the bride and groom socialize after their plates are empty.

Now the party really starts as the bride and groom step out on the dance floor and encourage guests to do the same.

Bouquet/Garter Toss (anytime)

Cake Cutting (4:00-4:10)

Dancing and Mingling (4:10-4:50)

Tradition has it the girl who catches the bouquet and the guy who snags the garter will marry next (although not necessarily to each other). It’s entertaining to watch what guests will do to snatch the bouquet and garter!

Cake cutting indicates that the evening is winding down; it should occur an hour before the reception ends. This provides guests with an opportunity to politely leave after dessert or stay until the evening ends.

Twist the night away or mingle with family and friends while sipping on one last glass of wine.

Last Dance (4:50-5:00)

Farewell (5:00)

Choose a fun, memorable song for the last dance and savor these final moments of the celebration.

34  winery weddings  fall 2012

It’s time to break out the sparklers, rose petals, bubbles, glow sticks or ribbon wands and bid the newlyweds farewell.

First Dance Tactics Practice, practice, practice! Start practicing at least three months before the wedding date.

Select a meaningful song that you both enjoy. A two and a half to three minute song with a consistent, easy to hear beat usually works best.

Consider the bride’s attire before choreographing your dance. Is she wearing a long dress or a short one? Is it fitted or flowing? Can she lift her arms?

Take into account the size, shape and type of dance floor when choreographing your dance. Not excited about dancing in high heels? Bring fashionable flats just for dancing, and ask your husband- to-be if he feels comfortable swaying across the dance floor in his dress shoes. It’s a good idea to practice in the shoes you’ll be wearing at the reception. The groom leads and the bride follows. If this is a scary thought for the groom, or even scarier for the bride, sign up for dance lessons and dance the nights away.

It can be tempting to stare at your feet while dancing but it’s much more impressive to gaze lovingly into the eyes of your new spouse.

Let the DJ know about when and how your first dance will begin so he can smoothly transition into the song.

Keep it simple. It’s fun to show off those fancy twirls, jumps and dips but don’t overdo it.

Mistakes happen. Let it go, keep on dancing and have fun. www.wineryweddingmagazine.com 35

OCTOBER 15, 2011 • POTOMAC POINT WINERY How They Met...

Susan and Matt met while working at World Wildlife Fund in Washington, DC. They enjoyed a shared love of movies, travel, and great Italian food during their 10 year friendship. Then, just like in the movies, it all changed when they saw something more in each other.

How He Proposed...

While discussing upcoming vacation plans, Matt stepped out of the room for a moment then casually returned to the couch. He mentioned that several of his friends just came back from amazing trips to Paris and said, “I was wondering if you’d like to go with me to Paris for our honeymoon!” When he pulled out the ring Susan was blown away. It was absolutely perfect!

Why a Winery Wedding...

The couple desired a semi-destination wedding close to DC and a venue new to the guests. As a gourmet culinary instructor and private chef, Matt has always appreciated the taste of superb wine and food offered at Virginia wineries. Once they saw Potomac Point Winery’s gazebo, ballroom and Coyote Cave they knew it was the perfect place to say their ‘I do’s.’

WEDDING MOMENT TO REMEMBER “I loved the first look experience when Matt saw me for the first time,” Susan recalled. The experience began when she entered a private part of the vineyard where Matt stood waiting with his back turned towards her. After she walked up to him and tapped his shoulder he turned around and instantly melted. She absolutely loved her future husband’s reaction when he saw her for the first time in her wedding dress just moments before the ceremony.

SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 • VERITAS WINERY

How They Met...

Brooke and Travis met in high school. They remained close friends until her junior year and his senior year in college when they started to date.

How He Proposed...

Shortly after arriving at a fabulous bed and breakfast on Amelia Island, Travis asked Brooke to grab their dinner information from his travel bag. When she looked in his bag she was surprised to see the box that held his great grandmother’s engagement ring. She turned around to find Travis on one knee holding a ring he had designed just for her. She was so excited she didn’t give him a chance to slide the ring on her finger. She called and texted several family members and friends to share the wonderful news.

Why a Winery Wedding...

For Brooke and Travis it was more about a wedding at Veritas than a winery wedding. Growing up in the area, they enjoyed many Starry Nights music festivals at Veritas. From the first time Brooke visited the winery she knew it would be a perfect wedding venue. The combination of elegance, class, nature and romance was the right fit for their fun loving family and friends.

WEDDING MOMENT TO REMEMBER Brooke and Travis planned a unique, personalized wedding with programs tucked in hand-sewn burlap pouches, a wishing tree guest “book” and handmade paper flags used to send off the couple. A photo booth with props and a live performance by the 10 Spot band were big hits. The most memorable moment occurred during the father-daughter and mother-son dances when the groomsmen and bridesmaids cut in, adding some entertainment to say the least. www.wineryweddingmagazine.com 43


SEPTEMBER 25, 2010 • HILLSBOROUGH VINEYARDS How They Met...

Katy’s family was planning a huge birthday bash for her uncle, and her uncle’s minister, Justin, would be attending. On the to-do list her aunt wrote, “you should flirt with Justin because I think you all should date.” Katy met Justin a few weeks earlier at church and wasn’t opposed to the idea, except that she was a terrible flirt! When it came time for dinner everyone quickly grabbed a seat, leaving Justin, Katy and a table for two in the middle of the room. They sat down together and Katy attempted to flirt with her entire family watching. The next day Justin emailed her and asked if she’d like to go on a date without her family present. Katy replied yes!

How He Proposed...

During a trip to Napa Valley, Justin and Katy visited Domaine Carneros Winery and soaked in the gorgeous vistas surrounding their patio seats. After ordering the sparkling wine tasting flight, Justin asked if perhaps they should have something special to celebrate. He then proposed and Katy accepted.

Why a Winery Wedding...

When it came time to pick a wedding venue Katy and Justin searched for a location that offered an intimate feel where they could keep the guest list small and celebrate with those most dear to them. Since they enjoyed many good times at Virginia wineries, including one of their first dates at Hillsborough Vineyards, it seemed natural to marry at a one.

WEDDING MOMENT TO REMEMBER After the recession, Katy and Justin proceeded off the patio and around the tasting room where they noticed a small garden bench overlooking the mountains and vineyard. They sat down and savored their first moments as Mr. and Mrs. White, unaware that their photographer was right behind them capturing the moment.

JUNE 4, 2011 • WILLIAMSBURG WINERY

How They Met...

Bridget and John first met as children, but they didn’t spend time together until her senior year in college and his senior year in dental school. Sparks flew when John asked her to attend his senior dental gala as his date, and they’ve been together ever since.

How He Proposed...

Bridget planned a trip to New York City for John’s birthday. While touring the Empire State Building he asked a couple to take a picture of them standing in front of the sunset. When Bridget turned around for the picture John was down on one knee. It was a complete surprise and they ended up with an amazing photo.

Why a Winery Wedding...

Bridget and John love the wine and natural beauty at Williamsburg Winery. Since Bridget’s parents work at the winery they knew their reception would be incredible there.

WEDDING MOMENT TO REMEMBER Bridget will never forget the moment she saw John for the first time on their wedding day. It was truly a fairytale moment, when everything around her stopped and it was just her and John. John’s favorite moment occurred when Bridget’s dad stepped on her veil while giving her away. The veil ripped right off Bridget’s head, but luckily the maid of honor came to the rescue and placed it back where it belonged. For John this moment completely broke the ice.

JUNE 23, 2012 • OLD HOUSE VINEYARDS

How They Met...

Jennifer and Jon met on match.com and could honestly be one of those couples on the commercials. There was an instant connection on their first date and they were both excited to see each other again. It’s definitely an online-dating success story.

How He Proposed...

One night while watching TV in bed Jon walked out to the kitchen under the pretense of looking for something to eat. He started digging around the refrigerator, freezer and cabinets. A few minutes later he called Jennifer into the kitchen. When she walked in he was on one knee holding out her dream engagement ring. Shocked, she started screaming and jumping up and down. Of course, she said yes!

Why a Winery Wedding...

On a Sunday afternoon, Jennifer and Jon drove around to local wineries and fell in love with the incredible scenery, historic house and “outdoorsy” feel of Old House Vineyards. While touring the winery they met a bride who married there and she had nothing but wonderful things to say. That sealed the deal!

The Dirt Road Wine Tour I

f you’re looking for a unique wine tasting experience Little Washington Winery is the place to go. While a typical tasting incorporates a sip of five or six wines blended from grapes grown in the vineyard, Little Washington Winery offers their own four to five blends along with wines from little known wine regions around the world. The selection includes rare varietals you may never have tasted and incredible blends you won’t find in restaurants or grocery stores. With artisan wines from Hawaii, Idaho, Arizona, Michigan, Maine, Texas, Colorado, Tuscany and places in between, a wine tasting here is more than a tasting; it’s a Dirt Road Wine Tour.

Each bottle on the Dirt Road wine rack has a story behind it and a reason it was chosen. Members of the Dirt Road Wine Club taste new selections first, and the best of the best earn a spot on the Dirt Road wine rack. The tasting is always fun, interesting, educational and different each visit, with four surprise wines opened every day. Visit Little Washington Winery and experience the Dirt Road Wine Tour for yourself.

The idea of a Dirt Road Wine Tour emerged when proprietors Carl and Donna Henrickson opened their tasting room last fall. To supplement their two

wine selection they began searching for small farms like theirs that preserved farmland and produced incredible small batch wines. By the time Little Washington Winery’s own portfolio had grown to five wines, the Dirt Road Wine Tour was so popular the Henrickson’s decided to continue discovering the world’s hard to find artisan wines.

SIGHT

The color of wine reveals many characteristics including its age, saturation and alcohol content. White wines display a darker appearance as they age while red wines lose color over time and appear lighter. Pale, watery wines tend to be younger than tawny, brown white wines or orange, rusty brick red wines. The saturation, or degree of color in wine, is determined by tilting the glass so that the wine rolls toward the edges, allowing the true color to be seen. Dark red wines are saturated; pale pink wines are unsaturated. Full bodied wines such as Syrah or Zinfandel are thicker, darker and more saturated than light bodied wines like Pinot Noir. A wine’s alcohol content can be detected by firmly swirling the glass on a flat surface. Watch how the wine trickles down the sides of the glass. Wines that form “legs” or “tears” indicate a higher alcohol and glycerin content, which results in a dense, mouth-filling taste.

SMELL

A wine’s aroma is an indicator of how it will taste. White wines such as Riesling and Viognier tend to emit floral or fruity fragrances while Sauvignon Blanc is known for its herbal or grassy scent. Many red wines release earthy aromas of mushroom, damp earth, leather and rock. Wine barrel scents such as toast, smoke, vanilla, chocolate, espresso, roasted nuts or caramel result from a wine’s aging in oak barrels. Barrels can produce a wide variety of scents depending on the type, age and construction of the oak. Older wines offer hundreds of scents that are impossible to name. The best wines emit complex but specific and balanced aromas.

A true wine tasting experience includes touch.

1

Pour about an inch of wine into your glass. Begin with the lightest wines then progress to the heaviest.

2

Observe the wine’s color. White wines appear darker as they age and red wines appear lighter.

3

Swirl the wine glass on a flat surface. The wine’s scent is released as it coats the sides of the glass.

4

Take a series of quick, short sniffs, then step away and process the scent.

5

Take a small sip, allowing the wine to fill your mouth half way. Before you swallow, let the wine slide across your tongue from front to back and side to side.

TASTE

Wines can taste sweet, sour, salty or bitter. Acids, tannis and alcohol levels affect the dryness or sweetness of the wine. White wines are typically sweet and red wines tend to be dry. Those new to wine tasting usually detect jammy fruit and vanilla flavors similar to the taste of a soft drink. Wine connoisseurs can identify and appreciate the taste of more complex, flavorful wines that change in your mouth.

TOUCH

A true wine tasting experience includes the touch of wine on your tongue. The tannis in red wines, especially younger red wines, may feel prickly on the tongue. A mellow softness is ideal.

Consider the following questions when tasting new wines.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

How sweet is it? How acidic is it? If it is a red wine, do you notice the tannins? Is it a light, medium or full-bodied wine? How strong is the alcohol? How fruity is it? How silky or rough does the wine feel on your tongue? Is the wine balanced or does one element overpower the others? Does the wine taste similar to its aroma? Does it leave a refreshing zing around the edges of your tongue?

ADVICE

GROOM

•If she says “Do whatever you want to,” you’d better figure out what it is she wants you to do. •“Do it when you get a minute” means “It should have been done already and without me telling you.” •There is no right answer to “Does this make me look fat?” If she thought it looked okay she wouldn’t be asking. •The best gift a man can give his children is to show them how much he loves their mother. •The second best gift he can give them is his time. •Any meal you don’t have to cook is a good one. If you don’t have to cleanup it’s a great one. •Don’t ever criticize your wife in public- the world should know that you believe she is perfect. •Don’t fight or argue over the little stuff. It’s not worth the effort. •Tell her you love her, buy her jewelry and rub her feet. Everything else is little stuff.
