Today I’ve got a simple vineyard wedding that is oh so sweet. This couple is so in love, you can’t help but smile when you see them together. Plus it’s shot by one of my favorite photography duos, Justin & Mary, so what’s not to love?
The lovely Julie shares:
First of all, our wedding day was amazing. Our photographers – We absolutely love Justin and Mary’s style, so we knew that we wanted them to shoot our wedding as soon as we got engaged. In fact, while planning the wedding we used their blog for inspiration.
We had the ceremony outdoors in a vineyard so the main color was green, but we added white accents (the chairs, columns, and flowers), as well as some navy blue (the ribbons on the flower baskets) since that was our main wedding color. I didn’t want an arch, so we worked with our florist to come up with beautiful but cost-effective displays that wouldn’t take away from the natural beauty of the vineyard.
The ceremony was beautiful, and we feel like the pictures literally got every angle and every detail we could have wished for. Justin was taking pictures from relatively close-up, while Mary and Alison were taking them from further away. As soon as the ceremony ended, Justin & Mary “whisked” us away for a few “just married” pictures – and those are definitely some of our favorite ones! We headed down to the wine cellar for a few pics and then took our family and formal pictures. Then everyone went and had a good time at the reception. Overall, I don’t think there is anything that we would have done differently!
For the reception, our vendors really did most of the work. We worked with the florist to come up with centerpieces that we liked, had our food tasting with the restaurant, and then had (several!) wine tastings to figure out what wines we wanted served at the reception. Rhea at the Ginny Lee Cafe made sure that the tables were laid out exactly how we wanted, and everything went according to plan.
The best part I think is that since we chose to get married at a vineyard, we get to go back there as often as we’d like. We were actually there this past weekend, we both stood quietly and looked over the (now snow covered) grape vines and recollected our wedding day six months ago.
