When it came to wedding planning, Janelle and Joe wanted a wedding that evoked their feelings for each other, as well as their relationship with friends and family. Janelle described her central focus to photographer Novia Markina as “romantic, loving, emotional, heartfelt, and happy”. And with that as the beginning vision, it’s easy to see why this vineyard wedding turned out to be a lovely and heartfelt day.

The August nuptials took place on a small vineyard owned by a family friend, with luxurious scenery and stunning views. The outdoor ceremony took place before rows and rows in the lush vineyard, with simple white fold up chairs and barrels with over sized rose floral arrangements. There were even scripted programs on wooden placards for guests to peruse.

The bridesmaids choose different gowns for each woman, reflecting her individuality in shades of champagne and pink for a beautiful but unique look. Navy blue-gray relaxed suits evoked the ease of the natural setting and the coming fall.

Janelle’s bridal gown was rustic chic, with a scalloped v-neck, trumpet silhouette, and champagne undertones. A soft lace overlay and subtle train, along with soft curled hair worn loose fit well with her sweet vineyard theme.

White tablecloths, classic glassware, white and pink floral arrangements, and a rustic seating chart made for a light, airy, and welcoming reception space. And like everything else, the buttercream cake was elegant, simple, and the perfect complement to end the day on a final sweet note.
