Real Wedding : country elegant wedding in a Riverhead, NY vineyard

Today's vineyard wedding of Alex and Joseph {aka Fred}, photographed by Photography by Verdi, is just gorgeous. It exudes country elegance and as some of you may probably know by now my love of sunflowers . . . so I just LOVE the photos of the couple in the sunflower field.

The bride chose hot pink silk shantung for the girls bouquets and matching hot pink gerber daisies, roses, and calla lillies in hers. Alex's mom made the birdcage veil to accompany her Amsale gown.

After having the formal photos taken on the rocky beach - they stopped by a local farmstead {Harbes Family Farm} to have their photo taken next to an old truck.

A big tent was set up for the outdoor ceremony and the barn was where the reception took place. There was even  a country lemonade stand set up with pink and white striped tablecloths and mason jars. And, on the way to the ceremony tent, guests were asked to take their seating cards. The cards were on pink and white paisley paper and hung with clothes pins from tangled grape vines.


Tin buckets were filled with white hydrangeas and lined each row of white wooden chairs for the ceremony and when the ceremony was over, guests waved streamers with ribbons that read "Alex and Joseph tied the knot".
