Beautiful spring red wedding despite the weather

Talk about April showers! The weather this past Saturday was not exactly coorperative for an outdoor wedding. You can even see the wind blowing the flowers in the pictures. At 1:30 it was hailing like crazy. Luckily for the bride and groom (and guests), it cleared up for the 6:30 ceremony. Nevertheless, Childress Vineyards is a beautiful place for a ceremony and reception. The spring flowers meshed with the vineyard theme – grapes in the centerpiece vases, grapevine around the columns at the ceremony.

The bridesmaids wore spring red dresses. So the colors were red, purple, lavender, and plum. The flowers included sweet peas, stock, lilac, bells of Ireland, hydrangea, roses, and stargazer lilies. Gorgeous!
