Real Weddings | Emma and Chad

Last fall, we had the privilege of working with a wonderful couple; Chad and Emma. Their wedding was set in a beautiful vineyard at that perfect time of the day when the sun just starts to be romantic.

Samantha Bender was the photographer that shot this gorgeous wedding. As you can see, her work is suburb and it was a joy working with her. Samantha is not one of those photographers that are "in your face," but rather works with the moment, capturing images and manipulating the light to give everything that she shoots that perfect artistic edge. To be honest, you hardly know that she is there, and then this perfect picture comes from what you thought was a lost moment. She truly is an artist.

Chad and Emma opted for a romantic evening dinner, so since their Ceremony and Reception were at the same place, they decided to do a later Ceremony outside. The vineyard has a rock patio that was perfect for the bridal party while their guests were seated around them. I love doing Ceremonies in the semi-round as it lets the couple be surrounded by the love of family and guests.

Their Reception was held in a tent on the property.  We added drapery, lights and Chinese Lanterns to decorate the ceiling as well as beautiful linens and decor.  You would never know that we had to weight the tent down with big boulders found on the property because of the blowing wind.   I don't know how many times we replaced tablecloths and chargers!

Congratulations Emma and Chad!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.

We added elements of silver and black to a purple color scheme.  The flower balls that graced the top of the centerpiece vases, also graced the top of the Ceremony stone pillars, giving color and texture to both spaces, yet carrying a central theme throughout.
Emma had menus and thank you cards made that gave their guests a glimpse of what was to come.  It was a fun evening and one that we were honored to be a part of.
