NC Vineyard Wedding | Sanctuary Vineyards

Fall vineyard wedding and winery reception

I met Allison and William a few months ago for their engagement photos with their cute pup Ruger.  Both are in the military and expecting deployments in the next couple of months.

We had the most gorgeous possible weather for their NC Vineyard Wedding at Sanctuary Vineyards!  The weather for a late October wedding in North Carolina is either amazing or horrible.  We have had a really good year with hurricanes (knock,knock), but it's just so risky planning months ahead.  There wasn't even a cloud in the sky, and Allison was even worried for sunburn!

The ceremony was held in the northern Vineyard, with wine barrels at the alter and an old wooden door arch to walk through.  Lots of fall colors with pumpkins and flowers everywhere.  The bridal party arrives in style with a hayride to the ceremony!

Allison and family are from Nebraska, and her dad had some jokes about our size of corn!  Allison had a family friend from Nebraska do her hair and make-up.  I LOVE a birdcage veil!  She looked of old Hollywood, with her veil, vintage style dress and gorgeous tattoos!

The couple played up on the fall theme with loads of jewel tones in flowers and dresses, and candy apples for a guest favor!

Before the ceremony, we did a first look among the tractors and silos.  William was a bit nervous as you can see with the hand rubbing!

To Have and to Hold did a fantastic job with coordinating everyone and keeping the show on time!
