This gorgeous vineyard wedding comes to us from the videography team at NST Pictures, based in New York, NY! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

We were living in South Eastern Connecticut at the time and we were surrounded by quite a few Vineyards. We wanted to be outdoors, using nature as our backdrop and a tented reception was how we both envisioned the night. I was far from the bride that dreamt of a ballroom/black-tie situation. (Not that there is anything wrong with that!)

See more after the cut!

We chose Preston Ridge Vineyard for its vast beauty, its secluded feel and the views overlooking the vines from the ceremony location. I wanted the wedding to inspire romance and feel whimsical. Most importantly, we wanted it to be fun and laid-back.

I wanted the florals to be a main focal point. I choose colors that would enhance the existing beauty of the vineyard. We incorporated lush eucalyptus and Blue Acacia, garden roses in shades of pinks and champagnes and dahlias in a deep plum to mimic the color of red wine. Our chuppah and arch way (that the bridal party walked through down the aisle) were both handmade by the groom’s father. They were both adorned with florals. The farm benches tied the scene together. Everything seemed to fit organically with the setting.

The bridesmaids picked their own dresses in shades of blush and nude and the groomsmen wore navy suits, brown leather suspenders and blush bowties. I loved seeing everyone’s personal style shine through. The flower girls wore understated flower crowns.

Inside the white century tent we featured a twinkle light canopy and we draped fabric throughout the tent to add warmth and elegance. When the sun went down, the twinkle light canopy created the perfect “mood” to let loose.
