Everything about this wedding at Martha Clara Vineyards from W Studios New York makes me beyond happy. It put permanent grin on my face the minute I opened it, and what’s better than that on a Friday morning? With a picture perfect palette, lovely florals from Moments in Time and love-filled details sprinkled throughout, you don’t want to miss all the happy sitting right here.
From W Studios New York…Katie & Andre planned the perfect wedding on the North Fork. Not only did they have a stunning vineyard for their ceremony and reception, but they also rented a house right on the water to get ready in on the big day. Katie along with her mom and mother in law spent her free weekends collecting bottles & jars for her centerpieces, hunting for just the right votive holders, making burlap runners, and creating paper tag placement cards. It all paid off as the details came together beautiful for the celebration. One of our favorite moments of the night was the heart felt cheers and greetings that came from the crowd of friends and family as the newlyweds strolled out of the barn lit by the glow of the sparklers!
From The Bride (Katie)…Our wedding felt like a fairy tale, everything was absolutely perfectly (minus me forgetting the marriage license at the house that we were staying at the day of the wedding! Oops it all worked out though!) The day was filled with so much love between Andre and I and our family and friends.
The morning of our wedding it was raining and kind of gloomy, even as I was walking down the aisle it had stopped raining but the sky was filled with clouds and the wind was blowing. Before I finish the story of our wedding, I have to give you a little history on Andre and I. We have been dating for over five years now and towards the beginning of our relationship around six months in Andre’s father passed away (it was so sudden and heart breaking, I’m sad that I never really got to know my father-in-law.) I love hearing stories about Andre’s dad, how he was always the life of the party and made friends with everyone he met and had such a strong will. During our ceremony you can see all of the dark clouds behind us, at one point our reverend acknowledged all of those who were not present at the wedding but with us in spirit. After that the clouds started to break and the most beautiful blue sky started peaking though. This was a sign from his dad that everything was going to be alright and he was with us. You can see it in the pictures! It was such a touching moment, I think that everyone there had goose bumps! It was amazing and beautiful!
I have to say that this was truly the best day of our lives.
