~ Pennie and Dale’s Canton Vineyard Wedding~
Although Pennie and Dale went to the same high school and had mutual friends, they did not know one another until many years later. After reconnecting several years ago, it was on their first date that Pennie and Dale both knew that they were meant to be and they have spent every moment together since that day. After surprising Pennie with dozens of red roses at work, Dale showed up with one single white rose and got down on one knee to ask Pennie to become his wife.
These two wine lovers wanted a wedding with the romance of Italy, so Gervasi was their one and only choice for a wedding venue. The ceremony took place on the veranda outside the Villa Grande and the reception took place inside the very elegant Ballaria Sophia ballroom. Pennie and Dale are sophisticated, yet fun-loving, and a formal and opulent reception with evening attire was what they imagined for their day. The ballroom was full of grandeur with dramatic floral arrangements in shades of violet, lavender, and ivory, including tall elaborate candlestick designs and short pieces in gold pedestal vessels. A five-tier cake was wrapped in gold and ruffled icing.
Pennie chose a modern gown with a classic style; ivory with a beige underlay of lace under the chiffon base of the dress. The top half of the gown was embellished with lots of beading and lace detail. To complete her look, Pennie’s stunning emerald halo diamond engagement ring was complemented by crystal cascade drop earrings and a diamond tennis bracelet. In her arms, she carried a colorful bouquet of roses, dahlias and anemone flowers in shades of violet and cream.
