Intimate Winery Wedding Rearranged by Hurricane

When Hurricane Irma swept through Key West last month, repercussions were felt around the country, even in the wedding world (like another quick-thinking couple we featured not too long ago!). For Rick and Lexi, they had planned their Floridian destination wedding at a venue that lost power and the ability to host their gathering, so they had to find a new perfect place here in Hampton Roads to celebrate their marriage – all in a matter of days! Fortunately, they had an amazing wedding team to come in and still make their wedding gorgeously memorable at the Williamsburg Winery, the home of the couple's very first date. You would have never thought there were flower shortages with Maria Grace Photography behind the lens capturing their lovely details!

While the entire guest list was understandably not able to change their travel plans on such short notice, their larger wedding became a much more intimate small gathering of a few dozen loved ones. The deep burgundy red of Lexi's bouquet perfectly matched the winery backdrop and contrasted beautifully with their original tropical wedding color of mint green and light blue. And as destiny would have it, a local music festival was going on at the same time at their venue that happened to be close friends of the couple, so the whole wedding reverse-crashed the other party! The band dedicated a special song to the newlyweds as they danced in front of hundreds of new impromptu guests. The whole celebration was the cherry on top of what turned out to be a perfect day and shows that yet again love always prevails over weather shenanigans.
