Carey and Jason - Wolffer Estate Vineyard, Hamptons


All my clients are in love but I have to say Carey and Jason, their connection is one to envy. Jason looks at Carey like Nicolas Cage did at Meg Ryan in City of Angels, silly reference but if you've seen the movie you know what I mean.

The beautiful Wolffer Estate Vineyards

French Blue shutters that inspired their color story

I loved the detail on her dress. There was a certain fragile and vintage feel to it that just added to the sweetness of their wedding.

BORROW THIS IDEA: We wanted to tie in the vineyard theme without being too kitchy so for the guestbook, I suggested they create wine labels that read "Happy Anniversary" and put them in a Kolo album. Guests were encouraged to sign directly onto each label and then we transferred the labels onto bottles of Wolffer Estate Wine. Now for every anniversary, Carey and Jason can open up one of their very special wedding wines and read the warm wishes their friends and family wrote to them on their wedding day.

Love when cherry blossoms are in bloom!

Long tables complimented the long rows of vines (though still barren)

BORROW THIS IDEA: Save yourselves a seat! It doesn't have to necessarily be an elaborate chair sign but just something to make sure you save the best seat in the house for the bride and groom.

HELPFUL TIP: When selecting your seat, please keep a few things in mind: 1) Make sure you have the best view of the room 2) Try to keep your backs to as few of your guests as possible 3) Try to be central so that none of your guests feel too isolated 4) Look behind you and make sure your backdrop is a pretty one - think of your photos!

....and they lived happily ever after.

What a beautiful wedding! I love the idea of personalized wine labels for the two of them to share every year on their anniversary!

We used personalized wine as favors for our wedding. We bought mismatched cases from Costco at a steep discount and personalized them with custom wine labels from www.bottleyourbrand.com Our guests loved them and we have a few spare bottles to enjoy on our anniversary!
