We were out at Cave Springs and Inn on the Twenty with Pav and Greg to capture their absolutely beautiful, if not a little stormy, vineyard wedding!
Inn on the Twenty has a lovely intimate room for bridal prep.
Isn’t she just unbelievably beautiful?! Once the birdcage was in place, we had a little calm before the storm to take this and the sneak peak we posted.
Pav and Greg opted for a first look. As you know, we always recommend a first look unless there are cultural reasons to forgo it. A first look gives the couple a private chance to say hello before the ceremony. Typically, our couples who choose to go with a first look are getting ready close to each other and in a completely private setting when they first catch sight of each other. This allows us to capture dramatic, personal (often emotional!) reactions then and when the couple see each other down the aisle with all of their friends and family watching.
After the first look, we drove the short distance to the Cave Springs vineyard for the ceremony. We couldn’t resist posting this pic of one of the ring bearers just a little stressed out from all of the attention.
The trooper that Pav is, she insisted that the ceremony be set up outside. Cave Springs had set up an interior alternative, but Pav committed to an outdoor ceremony, and had the vineyard move all of the chairs outside right at the point of no return. The weather be damned.
As a little celebration, the girls decided to toss their bouquets up in the air and we took this shot from a unique point of view. We promise that only one bouquet was mortally injured during the shooting of this photo. We won’t say which bridesmaid is responsible . . . butterfingers!
