Real Wedding | Elegant Winery Wedding

quote

 

This month’s Real Wedding is amazing! Seriously, I have nothing else to say! Let the pictures do the talking!

 

The Venue

 

Where was your wedding and why did you choose that venue?

 

Kickapoo Creek Winery. I have wanted to have my wedding at this venue for years – the setting is absolutely beautiful and the catering is really good.

We had fans to try to beat the heat! The mini pencils are for a word search on the back of the ceremony programs with all the wedding party names.

The Dress

 

Where did you find your dress and the bridesmaid’s dresses?

 

Bride’s dress: Adore Bridal & Sepcialty

I lost my Grandma to breast cancer about 7 years ago. While she could not be with us on our wedding day, I wore her gold stud earrings that she used to wear every day. I also wore a bracelet from my mom as my “something borrowed.”

The Ceremony

ceremony

 

We did a wine box ceremony during the ceremony in place of a unity. My husband and I both wrote letters to one another, sealed them, and placed them in the box during the ceremony along with a bottle of wine. If we ever find our marriage facing insurmountable hardships, we are to open the box, drink the wine together, & read the letters to reflect on why we chose to be together. The hope, of course, is that we do not ever have a reason to open the box. If not, we will open it together on our 5th anniversary, drink the wine, read the letters, write new letters & re-seal everything. This will be continued every 5 years. We have the wine box displayed in our home.

The Flowers

 

Who was your florist, and what pieces did you have done?

 

Georgette’s Flowers

 

This arrangement hung on the arbor, and then was placed on our head table.

These arrangements were hung on the aisle at the ceremony, then were moved indoors and used as centerpieces for some tables.

The Reception

We had family and friends come from all over the country for our wedding. It was so meaningful to the both of us that we have all our most loved people there, and we used a canvas that had pictures reading “Established 8-29-15” for our guests to sign, which is now very proudly hung on a wall in our home.

My dad’s speech was so funny that people were nearly in tears.

Who made your cake?

Trefzger’s Bakery

 

reception (6)

 

We had 10 different “fun fact” napkins that we used in place of plain cocktail napkins.

We also made fun coozies that guests could grab for their drinks at the bar. We still use them!

 

wedding party (2)

 

We had a photo booth that captured many great pictures, and our gift to our guests was a magnetic frame they could place a copy of their picture in.
