My recipe for a perfect summer wedding? A stunning outdoor venue, loads of sunshine and peonies + garden roses everywhere you look. It’s that simple. Of course, a crew of A-team vendors like Summer Street Photography, Hana Floral Design, Gourmet Galley and Wilson Stevens Productions doesn’t hurt one bit either. See the pretty results for yourself and don’t miss the film from The Pixel Perfection.
From The Bride…Tyler and I knew from the start that we wanted our wedding to center on family, friends, laughter and love. We have known each other since high school and we were so excited to celebrate our big day with family and friends who have watched us grow both individually and as a couple over the ten years that we have been together. Our first step in planning our wedding was to find a unique, memorable venue. We knew from the moment we first visited Saltwater Farm Vineyard that it fit the bill. The vineyard served as a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony and our reception was held on in the venue’s converted airplane hangar. With help from amazing vendors, our wedding was beyond what we ever could have imagined.
We awoke to amazing weather the morning of the wedding. I spent the afternoon sipping mimosas with my bridesmaids as the girls from New Leaf Hear Studio (I’ve been a loyal client for over a decade!) did our hair and makeup in the vineyard’s bridal suite. Yumiko from Hana Floral Design built the bouquets and floral arrangements around my favorite flowers, peonies and garden roses, and Jennifer Glissmeyer from Gourmet Galley made sure the whole day went perfectly.Tyler and I decided early on that we wanted to share a “first look” before the wedding. I am so happy we did – it was such a special moment for the two of us to share before the ceremony. The big day feels like a whirlwind – my advice to brides is to soak-in and savor as many little moments as possible – from the seconds just before you walk down the aisle to watching friends and family enjoying themselves at the reception.
