Okay. This Oregon vineyard wedding is beyond gorgeous. The eggplant hues, stunning vineyard, the beautiful bride – all beyond. Captured by Kate Kelly Photography, this phenomenal affair was planned, designed, flora’d and catered by Vibrant Table Catering & Events – and I’m sure I’m not the first to say that the all-star team at Vibrant Table totally hit the ball out of the park with this wedding. I’ve been swooning for days. Click here for more!
As soon as we got engaged I knew I wanted our wedding to be personal and to accurately reflect us as a couple. Sports immediately came to mind as a “theme” my now husband and I wanted to incorporate into our special day because we were both athletes growing up and our love of sports has been a common interest between us since we met. Baseball surfaced as the natural fit given my husband works as a college baseball coach. Some elements we included throughout the wedding included tables named after stadiums, baseball wrapped chocolate favors, my Mets garter and, of course, our cake topper which featured a groom pitching and a bride at the plate.
Outside of the sports element, however, I wanted the day to be romantic and for our guests to have a wonderful time celebrating the love that we were committing to for the rest of our lives. The venue – Zenith Vineyard – played an integral role in setting that context. Nestled in Oregon’s beautiful wine country, Zenith represented our DREAM location with views during the ceremony and cocktail hour of lush rolling hills & vines along with an indoor reception space that featured iron chandeliers and a gorgeous fireplace. Several DIY elements including the programs and menus created a personal touch and our color palette of grey, black and shades of purple – from lilac to eggplant – really made the greenery surrounding the winery pop!
Guests of the wedding continue to tell us how amazing (and filling!) the food was. Vibrant Table catered the event and we opted for stations which featured many different options including seafood, beef, fresh salads, a selection of northwest cheeses and more! Into the night, we refueled guests as they danced the night away with sliders and fries!
The day turned out to be exactly what we hoped for and, when I think back, the moment that stands out the most is when my husband and I recited the vows we wrote together to one another. Even though we were surrounded by friends and family, it felt like only we were there in that moment…I still remember it vividly and I know I will for the rest of my life.
