On a dreamy day last October, Deanna and Nick exchanged their vows before having an intimate dinner with their family at the beautiful Raphael Vineyard in New York. It wasn’t the big wedding they had originally planned, but their day was still incredibly sweet and special. We were so grateful to have been a part of this beautiful moment with their open-hearted loved ones that brought us right in as if we’d always been part of their family.
Deanna wore a stunning Berta gown. She was simply breathtaking in the delicate floral lace detailing that covered the entire dress. Her beaded headband and simple veil gave the most lovely mix of elegant and ornate to her look. Nick wore a classic black suit that gave the couple such a sophistication which looked incredible. Their floral arrangements featured muted pink and purple hues which met with the red in their ceremony space so beautifully.
I had been to this venue once before a few years back, and could not wait to get back to Raphael Vineyard. While it may be lesser known, this place is just a hidden gem. This gorgeous vineyard was simply the perfect backdrop for Deanna and Nick’s love. My job of capturing them was a breeze as Deanna looked so effortlessly beautiful running through the trees.
The reception dinner was on-site at the vineyard and just absolutely magical. The time we got to spend with Deanna and Nick’s family was bursting with the love they all share. It was endlessly beautiful and fun, perfectly embodying the couple we were there to celebrate.
Deanna and Nick were a joy to work with. I could not be more excited to reunite with them and their wonderful family this weekend for their rescheduled big celebration of their marriage. I’ll never forget this special day and the beautiful memories we got to capture there, but I look forward to adding more stunning moments to their love story.
