From the getting ready pictures to the last dance, this vineyard wedding at Waterbrook Winery is sure to inspire any event involving vino! Mark VanDonge Photography captured each gorgeous detail. Here are our favorite ideas you should totally steal borrow:
1. The Bride’s Hair
Tiny strands of pearls braided into her hair create an elegant crown for this beautiful bride.
2. Bright Emerald Accents
Emerald green wedding shoes add some sass to the bride’s romantic look. The pop of rich green in the bride’s shoes and the groom’s tie perfectly complement the lush greenery of the vineyard.
3. The Bride’s Note to Her Future Husband
How sweet is this? Exchanging cards before the first look can calm nerves and amp up the excitement of the day.
4. The First Look
The anticipation is palpable as the groom waits for his bride and the pictures of the look on his face when he turns around are priceless!
5. The Setting
The juxtaposition of a modern rustic building and the lush property surrounding it made for the perfect outdoor wedding with both modern and rustic elements.
6. The Flower Girl and Ring Bearer
Dressed like a mini bridesmaid and groomsman, these two almost stole the show! Matching the flower girl and ring bearer to the bridal party makes them feel all grown up with their special role in your wedding.
7. The Reception
String lights make for a dramatic transition from day to night as you move from the ceremony to reception. Guests sipped on sangria, a fun signature drink for a winery wedding!
Planning tip: Offering a large selection of passed appetizers encourages guests to try a little of everything, and then hit the dance floor.
8. The DIY Details
Crafting DIY wedding details is truly a labor of love. The couple used a blend of burlap, book pages, twine, and touches of green ribbon to create unique accents on the cake, tables, wedding arch, and champagne flutes.
Planning tip: DIY details can really let your style show, but plan to have someone else set them up on the big day. You’ll be busy getting ready and shouldn’t stress about the details.
9. The Outdoor Lounge
When the sun sets and temperatures drop, an outdoor lounge area with a fireplace gave guests a place to relax and keep warm. The glow of candles in mason jars created a cozy little corner.
10. The Thank You Picture
An old window is a clever prop for a thank you sign! A picture like this is perfect for thank you notes.
