Grab a glass of vino and join us as we talk all things vineyard weddings!
After selecting a beautiful winery wedding venue, it's time to start planning the design and details. So how do you plan a winery wedding at a vineyard? Take advantage of the beautiful landscapes and property's buildings. Vineyard weddings are known for their phenomenal views and romantic vibes. Choose wedding decor that enhance the natural beauty of the winery like a floral arch for your wedding ceremony and wedding welcome signs for your reception entrance.
Incorporate wine barrels and wine corks in a classy way. Use a wine barrel to showcase your wedding cake, a wine barrel guest book alternative or even wine cork inspired paper for your wedding invitations.
Consider hiring local vendors who know the winery or vineyard property well. Photographers who are familiar with your vineyard wedding venue are sure to know the perfect location opportunities for beautiful images.
Consider a wine inspired color palette for your wedding design! Burgundy lends itself to a winery wedding without explanation. Lots of lush floral arrangements help to pull in your wedding colors and accentuate your venue's natural beauty. Soft, flowing fabrics for table runners or ceremony decor add the perfect romantic touch.

I also made a garter for bride, Sam, from her's wedding wedding dress and her wedding was at a vineyard. It is so winery glam, I love it!
