Real Wedding: Vintage in the Vineyard

Your wedding day is truly one of the most unique opportunities you’ll have to showcase your personality, your favorite things and your love story. Dan and Melissa Photography share a bride and groom with us today who definitely took advantage of this cool perk. Nick and Theresa packed their day full of details that reflected their individuality and personal style! For their backdrop, the couple chose the beautiful Ciccone Vineyard & Winery in Suttons Bay, Michigan. The setting had just the right balance of natural, outdoor views, and rustic, retro spaces — namely, the gorgeous red barn. The rockin’ duo kicked off their wedding day festivities alone with a first look in the vineyards. Then, they hopped on bright and shiny vintage bikes and took them for a spin! But these awesome bikes weren’t the only fun props — a cherry red classic car made an appearance, too. Since Nick restores old bicycles and Theresa’s dad is a vintage car collector, both car and bikes added special significance to their day. The bride and groom held their ceremony inside the venue’s on-site barn. Opting for an offbeat idea, they faced the guest chairs toward one corner of the barn and created a lovely backdrop with a hanging white drape and a bright bouquet of red florals. The following reception waited just a hop, skip and a jump away on the other side of the barn. Yet again, Nick and Theresa took every care to incorporate details which spoke to their personalities. Round tables covered with white linens and red rose centerpieces took center stage while a gorgeous white cake sat on a wine barrel off to the side. The bride and groom spiced up the guest book station with Polaroid cameras, and guests snapped photos to put in the pages along side of their well wishing. This twist on the traditional guest book station proved to be one of the biggest hits of the night! With picks like this and many more, these two certainly made their mark on every part of this incredible day!
