Real Wedding: Raphael Vineyard – Peconic, NY

How great are weddings on a vineyard?  Looking at the photos from Felicia & James wedding at the Raphael Vineyard in Peconic, NY really gives you a sense of how perfect it can be.  With acres of lush green vineyards and beautiful, rustic, old-world architecture, their wedding has a very warm, timeless feel.  Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the vineyards and the weather was perfect (the North Fork of Long Island is considered by many to be the sunniest spot in New York State).  Did I mention that world-class wine was served :).

The Venue
The Raphael Vineyard winery was designed by John Petrocelli who was inspired by the Italian monasteries of his ancestral home.  The Renaissance Room, with antique finishes, seats up to 180, with full views of the vineyards.

Real Wedding: City Club at River Ranch – Lafayette, LA

It was a beautiful day for Brianna & Michael’s southern wedding at the City Club at River Ranch in Lafayette, LA.  The City Club was a great location, with extensive outdoor space, providing a perfect backdrop for their wedding.  Their ceremony took place under a large, octagon-shaped, gazebo — with the charm and character of an authentic red barn.  The gazebo is surrounded by lush landscaping and has a red-stone walkway that was perfect for their walk down the aisle.  The reception took place in the elegant Fleur de Lis banquet room.

Real Wedding Venue: Hyatt Regency Baltimore

This is our first indoor hotel wedding feature and it’s a real beauty.  Hotel weddings offer a great combination of elegance, flexibility and convenience.  Many hotels and inns are also very affordable, when compared to more traditional wedding venues, and offer more amenities (including discounted room blocks for out-of-town guests).

The Venue
Melanie & Phillip’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore, Maryland took full advantage of the space. From the beautiful grand lobby with interior glass elevators to the panoramic skyline views of Downtown Baltimore,  this venue provided the perfect backdrop for their urban wedding.  The catering, ceremony room and event planning was provided in-house as well, giving Melanie & Phillip more time to focus on other aspects of their wedding.  Did I mention the convenience of  hotel weddings 🙂 ?

Real Wedding Venue: Wadsworth Mansion – Connecticut

Weddings at historic mansions just feel special!  There’s something timeless about outdoor ceremonies on lush green lawns and wedding receptions in lavish ballrooms designed at the turn of the last century.  The wedding just seems to become  part of the history.

The Venue
The Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown, Connecticut is definitely a wedding venue that exudes history, class and beauty.  With a rich history dating back to 1900, the now city-owned mansion offers beautiful classical architecture and ample landscaped grounds;  providing the perfect backdrop for photos and setting the stage for a wedding to remember.  The ballroom seats up to 200 guests for a sit-down dinner and additional capacity is available via a tented outside patio.

Amanda and Todd took full advantage of the facilities and even a little rain couldn’t put a damper on their wedding.  The ceremony was held indoors due to the weather, but the room still provided beautiful ceiling to floor views of the grounds.  Having the flexibility to move indoors is a major benefit of venues that only host one event per day, such as the Wadsworth Mansion.

Real Wedding: Sanibel Harbour

Bride and groom Patrice and James were looking for a nautical wedding and definitely selected the perfect venue.  The Sanibel Harbour Marriott in Fort Myers, Florida is located on 85 waterfront acres at the tip of Fort Myers. Even better, the property offers amazing views of Sanibel and Captiva Islands on Florida’s Southwest Gulf Coast.

Before departing on the Princess Yacht for their wedding reception, Patrice and James took full advantage of the hotel facilities and oceanfront views for their photos.  Once aboard the yacht, guests were treated to a grand nautical wedding ceremony and reception while cruising the gulf coast. Captain Kevin Koughan even officiated the ceremony :).
