~ Ohio Winery Wedding ~
Inspired by Gervasi Vineyard, the setting for Jessica and John’s big day, this wedding mixed the wine-inspired theme of the vineyard with classic, minimalistic touches. The couple loves to travel and felt that Gervasi created a ‘travel destination’ atmosphere. Jessica and John didn’t include many traditional wedding aspects as they wanted to focus on allowing their guests to truly enjoy the special occasion.
On the wedding day Jessica wore a classic gown with a detailed neckline and embellished accents. A slim headband and delicate jewelry added to her look. Jessica’s bouquet had brilliant pops of burgundy, green, and pink. The tiger lilies featured in the bouquet added a subtle reference to the couple’s tropical honeymoon. John’s attire included a classic suit with burgundy accents and cuff links that were a gift from his bride.
Following the ceremony, guests retreated to Gervasi’s Villa Grand for the reception. Touches of burgundy on each table and centerpieces of decorated wine bottles handmade by the bride and groom added to the wine theme. The couple’s ‘naked’ cake was decorated with assorted berries and provided the minimalistic vibe the newlyweds had hoped for. Guests enjoyed yard games and dancing all night and were sent home with a favor of a wine stopper.
From an exciting ‘first look’, to an intimate ceremony on the vineyard grounds, to an evening of fun with family and friends, Jessica and John’s wedding was perfection. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Congratulations John & Jessica!
