Laurita Winery Wedding, a Rustic Chic Wedding – Ashley & Matt

This past May, I photographed Ashley & Matt’s beautifully rustic and chic Laurita Winery Wedding.

I started the day with the girls at nearby hotel. Ashley had the most stunning Naeem Khan dress from Exquisite Bridal. I absolutely loved the lace detailing and the beads on the bust and it fit her perfectly!

While the girls finished getting ready at the hotel, the guys had a blast keeping cool in a wine cellar at the winery.

Once I arrived with the girls, it was time for their first look. Matt was so excited to see his bride, it was one of the cutest first looks I ever photographed!

After the first look, we used as many spots at the winery as we possibly could. Laurita Winery has so many amazing spots for photos, I hope to go back again one day!

Not only was the winery a stunning back drop for an outdoor ceremony, but their ceremony was one of the sweetest of the year. The vows and readings were personal and one of my favorite moments was when Matt wiped a single tear from Ashley’s eye.

Ashley and Matt thought about every detail and again the winery served as the ultimate rustic back drop for their day. I loved their flowers and wine bottle centerpieces!

During cocktail hour, I was able to sneak our happily married couple away for a few sunset shots. These photos were absolutely my favorite from the day and I am so glad they were spontaneous and willing! <3

Once the reception began, our couple opened the night with a choreographed first dance and then we moved into speeches and a fabulous dinner.
