One day we got an email that read, "We are loving your portfolio, but we have an unusual wedding." That surely sparked our interest to find out just what was so unusual about their wedding plans. We had no idea that we'd meet two one of our most spontaneous and adventurous couples yet. Their vision was nothing over the top or unexpected - what's so special was how they wanted to execute that vision. It was about doing what felt good and meaningful in the moment, and making the best memories they can. That led to having not one, but two memorable days to cherish forever.
Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery
On a pleasantly warm September day, Taneil and Chris wedded at the picturesque Ravine Vineyard in the circle of their immediate family + us. The morning was as calm and enjoyable as it gets. Come first look, that's when the heartbeat goes up and emotions get high. "My heart is like...pounding," in Chris' own words - as you can also catch in their highlights video trailer below. Vineyards are such a beautiful setting to show up in your white bridal gown and embrace your husband to be. Check out our favorite morning details and first look moments below.
Located right by the vineyards, you don't have to try hard to make it look stunning. Nature does it all for you. As the guests sat in a semi-circle waiting for the ceremony to start, strong winds created a scenery that was later remarked by the officiant as "Gone With the Wind". Fits the theme for sure! In addition to the exchange of vows, the bride and groom chose to follow a beautiful tradition of getting their loved ones to bless their rings, and pass on their love and wisdom through holding the newlyweds' wedding bands.
