Dreaming of a cozy fireside wedding
From Gianny Campos Photography: Ashley always guessed they'd be married in the winter, her must being a fireplace. So with that, they started their search. Ashley came across Early Mountain Vineyards and as soon as they did their walk through not only found it to be the perfect fireplace, but a feeling of Hogwarts she couldn't resist. Alex and Ashley's inspiration was a cozy, elegant wedding.
Fall in love with their decor
They love to host friends, and wanted their wedding to feel the same way. Alex surprised Ashley with his interest in similar colors and accents so planning became a breeze. Florals were important to Ashley as her mom often creates floral designs. Ted, their French bulldog made an appearance throughout the evening in the place cards, signature beverage (Moscow Mule,) and favors. The beautiful fall foliage was brought in through the florals, decor, wine, and the fireplaces. It was a dream fall evening for these two high school sweethearts.
from one bride to another
From the bride: Communicate what's most important to you upfront, that helped us not only prioritize, but also helped us budget for what mattered most. Even though the big day is about the bride and groom, being mindful of details for the families, and guests goes a long way. Lastly, travel accommodations to/from hotels, venue and reception are always a great thing to offer if possible.
