This adorable couple has found all the right ingredients for a perfect vineyard wedding. First, start with a stunning bride. Put her in a show-stopping dress. Pick a venue that comes close to complimenting the brides beauty. Add to-die-for florals, and finally, the pièce de résistance, feed your loved ones fresh, amazing, local food and wine. Vibrant Table Catering & Events were not only the masterminds behind the mouth watering Oregon eats, but they also put together those gorgeous florals AND concocted a chandelier made entirely of rock candy. I’m in LOVE. The gallery has so much more of this perfect vineyard wedding, too!
Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I knew I wanted to remain true to the feel of autumn by using warm shades of red and orange throughout. Choosing a winery for a fall wedding probably seems like an obvious choice, but we chose our venue for a different reason. While attending college, a tradition of ours was our annual Memorial Day wine tasting weekend. It felt only natural to incorporate one of our favorite pastimes into our big day. Over the years, we had raved to friends and family about the Oregon Wine Country and wanted those closest to us to come out and celebrate our big day in the area where we developed our love for wine (and each other).
Other details simply began to fall into place. For example, we currently live in Seattle, so I knew I wanted to add a bit of home with hand blown glass votives from Seattle’s own, Glassybaby. The creamcicle color brought out the beautiful hues of the mixed floral centerpieces designed by our amazing foral artist, Page Winograd, of Vibrant Table. We futher built on the wine-inspired theme by incorporating some of our favorite varietals into our table names.
To add a little elegance to the already romantic feel, we decided to incorporate clear rock candy chandeliers, made by the wonderful Vibrant Table, and attach our table assignment cards to each branch. The kids in attendance at our wedding definitely enjoyed these! And keeping true to our fall vineyard theme, we included something fun for the adults – suction cup wine charms. Finally, since many of our guests were visiting Oregon for the first time, we knew we wanted to serve them some bold flavors of the Great Pacific Northwest. All of our food was absolutely wonderful and made on-site by Vibrant Table Catering & Events.
Our big day was an intimate gathering, highlighted by gorgeous fall colors, a lingering sunset over the vineyards, and little hints of us for our guests to discover around every corner of the beautiful setting.
