Welcome back for part two of Jenny and Mike’s vineyard inspired wedding from Elizabeth Ryan Photography! (Miss part one? Check it out here!) The Tuscan inspiration was brought to the wedding through custom, vintage-esque wine labels as table numbers, corks for place cards and grapes hidden in the centerpieces! Of course, I can’t get my mind off those sliders either… who could resist those as a late night, post-dancing snack!?
From Jenny: We liked having The Oaks for the weekend. It was great that our close family and bridal party were able to stay at the inn with us and celebrate all weekend.
We also had custom made wine bottle labels for the table numbers, and corks for the place card holders. I think we definitely achieved our vision! I also found some inspiration through some of the wineries Mike and I visited last year on a trip to wine country. V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena is a favorite and was where the majority of our table number bottles were from!
We really wanted our friends and family to enjoy themselves. Having everyone up and dancing was important to us so we knew right away we had to have a good DJ! We actually called him after hearing him at a friends wedding.
Jenny’s advice to other DC-area couples:
Since the reception was important to us we were happy that we saw our DJ in action. Our photographers were recommended by a family friend as well so I think it is important to have recommendations so you know you will be happy with the results!
