Let’s talk about perfect ways to celebrate your Big Day, shall we?  Because this darling Peninsula Ridge Estate Winery affair most definitely falls in that category.  I’m talking lovely afternoon “I do’s” followed by a laid-back meets all kinds of gorgeous reception chock-full of beautiful blooms and one heartwarming moment after another captured by Contagious Design + Photo.  See them all right here.

From the Bride… We wanted our wedding to be intimate with warm weather and delicious food and wine, surrounded by our nearest and dearest family and friends in a beautiful location. My perspective was that, and that it happened!

Our family did so much for our wedding.  My sister and cousins came into town three days before the wedding and helped me from the minute they got off the plane. My brothers set up pretty much all the hard stuff – I handed them the chandelier and they figured out how to rig it up in the tree…. we rented a cotton candy machine and my brother made the cotton candy.

We even had my grandpa bending wire for the aisle runner! I also had two amazing work friends and colleagues that came the morning of the wedding and really made everything come together for décor and set-up. We couldn’t have done it without all of them! It was a major group effort. It was so special to us all the people that came to our wedding – to have Sean’s grandpa and grandma who are in their late 90’s was so amazing. Our favourite part of the day – probably the “I almost promise” vows from Sean.

It was a breathtaking day with a morning ceremony, light lunch and wine to go with it. The setting was just perfect, there was a cool breeze that made everything seem just right. The vineyards all around us as the guests sipped on lemonade and played lawn games. There was so much going on and it seemed like everyone was having a great time and relaxing with a drink in hand. So many people who shared in the love of the day that made it perfect.
