Jean & Jason: The Vineyard Estate at New Kent Winery Summer wedding

Over coffee and cornbread, Jean and Jason fell in love. It's just that simple when it's right! Which brings us to a brilliant sunny day in July....where two families became one. The Vintager Inn in New Kent, Virginia provided the perfectly beautiful rustic setting for the binding of hearts. Flanked on either side by rolling green meadows and vineyards, this historic home, built in 1855, bore witness to the exchange of vows, as did family and friends. The wedding party, mostly made up of their beautiful children, meandered down the garden path to the pergola. Wooden signs pointed the way and the children even carried sweet signs of their own. Not only was the ceremony for the well-booted bride and groom, but their children took part as well, pouring sand together to symbolize the blending of their families. Dragonflies danced throughout, as though they too were overjoyed. Three deer stopped by to share the day and listened silently from across the field. After taking full advantage of their beautiful surroundings for photos, the wedding party was introduced in the big red barn, complete with chandeliers and globe lights draping the rafters. From the tree stump cake stand bearing their initials to the wooden place settings, not a detail was missed. The guests wrote their well-wishes on giant Jenga pieces, each guest a piece to their puzzle, making their lives together complete and blessed. After a truly Southern supper, the bride and groom first danced with each other and then with their children. The Matron of Honor, Tricia, gave a touching speech that left not a dry eye in the room. This was followed by her husband, Mike's words of wisdom for the newlyweds. Then the dancing....and games, and laughter, and conga line. Yes, conga line! There was even a fire outside for making s'mores, ATV rides, and a corn-hole board. This was an action-packed wedding! It was a perfect celebration for a couple so full of happiness and love. As the evening wound down, the couple was embraced by their wedding guests in an enormous group hug and then ran through showers of sparklers to end the night. It was quite a perfect ending to a perfect day....congratulations Jean and Jason!
