"It All Started With a Beer" Woodsy Wine Country Wedding
We just wrapped up a great wedding in May that had a ton of cute and unique elements as well as an adorable bride and groom! The theme was centered around the fact that they met at a tap room, with growlers as their centerpieces, and the table names after local craft breweries! To top it off they had taco's and Mexican food served embracing the fact that they met on Taco Tuesday, and I think it worked out perfectly that their wedding fell on Cinco de Mayo too!
The wedding was held at the groom's family home which had an awesome little grove where they set up the ceremony and reception. The day was beautiful, and the grove added a whole new element of charm with the big overhanging trees and beautiful lush grass. The couple had also used some of their own family's old milled wood to make their own backdrop for the ceremony as well as these amazing doors the bride stood behind before the big debut!
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! Such a fun day filled with laughter from all of the girls, and Ali's daughter was running around stealing the show half the day with her adorable personality and excitement!
Such a sweet ceremony, there were tears, and a lot of laughter! This couple is so great together, you can just see the love radiating off of them!
Gotta love that first kiss!! Its perfect! And that awesome handmade DIY wall behind them added such a perfect touch of rustic beauty, wouldn't you say?!
Some more details of the reception below, their awesome wood doors, that adorable cake (more of that coming...) and their dessert bar was a mix of amazing cupcakes, and some Mexican candy to feed off the theme of "it's always Taco Tuesday!"
One thing I absolutely loved about this wedding is that it was a very DIY wedding, but it was done so eloquently and beautifully you would never know. There are so many tips and tricks on how to make your wedding run smoothly even if you are on a budget, and these two knocked it out of the park!

They had a great bridal party, everyone had a blast during the entire day it was so fun to watch! Then came the toasts, these were some to remember!! They were funny, heartfelt and loving, all showcasing how great these two are for each other!
The cake cutting and the first dances were so fun, and of course their daughter jumped into the mix and got her own chunk of cake, but who can blame her?!
These three make a great trio, they are all so cute together and you can tell that this new little family is going to be unstoppable!
On top of having an awesome grove on the property, they also had acres of vineyards which didn't make for a bad time either! These two were just full of laughter and kisses the whole time we were together, I swear we didn't even have to pose them and they would fall into the best shots!
After the sun went down the real party started! There was nonstop dancing, laughing, and fun for everyone! The darker it got the more magical the place turned with the bistro lights hanging in the trees and giving just the perfect amount of mood lighting to bring this epic wedding to a close!
This was an awesome wedding, surely one for the books!! It's times like this that make us remember why we are wedding photographers!
