Do you want your wedding to be romantic with a touch of rustic? The overall feeling to be relaxed, but well put together and elegant all the same moment. If you answered yes, then our next wedding is for you. This romantic vineyard wedding is filled with unique and thoughtful touches that were not only special, but also incredibly stylish. You must read on to here more from the bride.
Held at Lincourt Winery, set amidst the majestic wine country foothills of Santa Ynez Valley. Emily and Jordan otherwise known as the bride and groom celebrated with friends and family, ate delicious food and danced under the twinkling lights. The day went as seamless as it sounds, all thanks to event planner and designer Brooke Keegan. You can see every last photo in our full gallery here. All beautifully captured by Sean Walker Photography.
We looked a couple different venues, but soon decided we loved the relaxed rustic feel of the vineyards in the Santa Ynez valley. From the moment we arrived at Lincourt we knew it was the place! Since my family is in the dairy business I loved that Lincourt was once an old dairy farm. The quaint setting also inspired the rest of the décor. I wanted everything to be simple yet beautiful and reflect our casual style.
Some of my favorite details in the wedding were the handmade touches. My grandma and I made little fabric bags to fill with Dutch mints that reminded me of my childhood and we had my young cousins pass them out at the ceremony—it was so fun to have all of them involved
One of our favorite moments was listening to a trio of family and friends play our favorite hymn “How Firm a Foundation” during the ceremony. Standing there in front of family and friends, with my sisters and best friends beside me, looking up at Jordan’s comforting smile I felt so overwhelmed with joy and excitement. Both Jordan and I agree that our wedding day was perhaps the most fun we have had in one day… ever.
Our florist, Kelly Kaufman of Florette Floral Designs did an amazing job capturing the loose romantic vision I had for the flowers. By the time the dinner bell rang I was super hungry and so excited to dive into the delicious tri-tip, veggies, and corn bread muffins provided by SBB Gourmet Catering—it went perfectly with the wine provided by Lincourt Winery. Our wedding coordinator Brooke Keegan and her assistants took care of everything and even our guests where blown away at how seamless everything was.
My grandpa’s vintage 1961 Lincoln Continental was our get away car and I just love the pictures our amazing photographer took of us in it. We cannot say enough good things about our photographer Sean Walker, not only are the pictures beautiful but he is so fun to work with and we could tell he sincerely cared about us. Although I actually never saw it in person except for a quick drive by.
One thing I was most excited about was the milk and cookie table set up for the guests at the end of the night. The little jars where filled with milk from my family’s dairy and the cookies were delicious! We wished the reception could have gone on forever, we are so glad we could let loose and celebrate with the most important people in our lives. Looking back on the day my heart swells with gratitude for how much love and support we felt that day.
