Wedding Day Details
Katie and Bryon were married in front of the vineyard at 9:30 in the morning. Katie’s father walked her down the aisle to a song she’d always wanted sung at her wedding, “Butterfly Kisses”. As Katie walked down the lavender accented aisle, her mother gave her portraits of her grandparents to pin to her bouquet. When Katie and Byron kissed underneath the wine barrel bracketed alter, confetti showered them in color. A perfect scene captured by a watercolor artist.
After the ceremony, the couple jumped into the their hot air balloon for a quick ride and a photo op as their guests were served mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. The brunch reception was catered by one of their most frequented restaurants, Another Broken Egg. Guests were served a myriad of breakfast dishes on beautiful vintage china from English Teacup and each table was adorned in travel and hot air balloon themed centerpieces. Everyone danced into the afternoon with sounds from a two-piece jazz band. As Katie and Byron exited their reception they were flooded with colorful confetti.
