Welcome back to Part Two of Janelle and Thomas’ romantic vineyard wedding at Trump Winery in lovely Charlottesville! I ended yesterday’s post with a preview of today’s post and a promise of much more to come . Well today I am back to deliver the goods, so sit back, relax and soak in all the beauty of this day!
I thought I’d start out with a few shots of the reception decor. Janelle chose a palette of green, white and coral for her tables which gave the room such a soft, clean feel.
Shout out to Chandlers Bakery for the fabulous cake!
Meanwhile, out by the lake, everyone had gathered for portraits and a little fun.
I love these two shots of Janelle and her three brothers and then her with her best girls.
We loved our time hanging out with these two. We finally had to let them go in and enjoy their reception, but man, it wasn’t easy! 😉
Perhaps my favorite from our time together…
A stroll through the vineyard…
For the cocktail hour, all of the guests gathered outside on the patio overlooking the lake and vineyard. What a gorgeous venue!
Janelle loves willow trees, so we made sure that we included the one at Trump in some of our shots.
Janelle and Thomas entering their reception…
…and going right into their first dance together.
Janelle’s father kicked off the toasts for the night.
Let me tell you, there was no shortage of cute babies at this wedding!
After dinner Janelle was brought out to the dance floor for a little Polish tradition: the polka!
Even the flower girls joined in!
Then the dance floor was open to all. Thanks to dj, John Garland
, they boogied the night away!
Checking her inbox…
We escaped out to the vineyard one last time just as the sun was setting. We just couldn’t pass up the dreamy light!
Some of Thomas and Janelle’s friends came out to join us. After channeling their inner chimpanzee, they all gathered around the newly weds to sing and pray over them.
This was, without a doubt, one of my favorite moments from the evening.
Janelle and Thomas: What a blessing it was to witness and document your marriage and wedding day. John and I were both so touched by all of the big and small ways that you care for each other and those around you. What a beautiful beginning to your lives together! We wish you all the best!
Un abrazo fuerte,
