This 7 Vines Vineyard Wedding was definitely one of my favorites this year, and one of the biggest reasons was the bride and groom I got to work with! Mike and Amy are absolutely the best! If you didn’t see their engagement session photos, you can take a peek here!
Planning this wedding wasn’t easy, with all of the changes that the pandemic brought on, but these two were determined to not postpone, so they worked on plan B, which ended up being an absolutely breathtaking day!
I love the colors they chose. Burgundy at a winery, with Fall colors, just looked beautiful. And velvet??? Yes, please! I still can’t believe it was almost 80 degrees in October!!! We definitely took advantage of it!
These photos were taken mid day, on a very sunny day, but here’s proof you don’t always need golden hour to get stunning photos…
They had the perfect socially distanced ceremony, and all guests were wearing masks. I was pregnant and felt completely safe all day long. It was very important to Amy and Mike that their guests feel safe, which I really appreciated too.
And of course I pulled them aside for sunset photos… This is definitely my favorite time of day for bridal portraits! Both Amy AND Mike have a calling for modeling in my book, I mean, just look at these two!!! They couldn’t keep their hands off each other, which photographs really well :-).
For my brides: If you’re wondering about a veil, the answer is always yes! It adds so much to photos, and you can easily take it off for a second “look” for the reception! Veils can be a bit annoying at times, but they are so worth it!
One of my favorite parts of the day was that Mike and Amy asked the venue to move their reception outside, to keep their guests safer. The view of the vineyard during the reception was unmatched! I felt like I was somewhere in Italy, and I bet all guests loved it too!
Cheers to Mike and Amy!!!
