Winery Wedding Centerpieces + Bouquets : vineyard themed ideas

Are you planning a wedding at a winery or would like to have your event infused with wine and vineyard themed inspiration? Today I've gathered up some beautiful inspiration for winery themed centerpieces and bouquet. My favorite centerpiece is definitely the grapes and flowers in the baskets - so different and unique. Guests could even help themselves to the grapes actually - wouldn't that be fun? I'm also loving the wine grape bonsai tree which are actually 10-12 year old wine grape specimens - how awesome is that?

Bridal Shoot : a vineyard theme wedding = bridals at the vineyard

Today's Bridal Shoot from Lisa Carpenter Photography features a gorgeous bride, Alicia, in her Allure Bridals gown. Since her wedding was vineyard themed, she chose to have her bridals taken in a vineyard. I LOVE seeing brides in natural surroundings. There's just something so beautiful about the white dress against the backdrop of nature. And, of course having a gorgeous dress like Alicia's is a definite plus too!!!!!!!

Wedding Location: Peconic, Long Island, New York

Continuing with a double-header from Mindi and Rich of Photography by Verdi, the second wedding today is of Felicia and James and in one word, it's stunning. I'm such a fan of sunflowers so I love the pots of sunflowers that were used for the outdoor ceremony in the vineyards.

Real Wedding : a country vineyard wedding in Canada

Today's country vineyard themed wedding of Liane & Antonio with elements inspired by nature is just gorgeous. It's another beautiful wedding from Madeline's Weddings and Events in Canada. When I saw the first shot of those heels, something told me this was going to be a spectacular wedding and it is. Photographs are by Carmin Davidson Photography.

The ceremony and reception took place in separate rooms at The Coboto Center. And, as Madeline wrote, "this ceremony is a perfect example of simple and elegant. All you need is love!" And, this is so true.

You are going to LOVE the next set of photos from Liane & Antonio's photo shoot with their wedding party.

And, can you believe this? Liane made the bouquets and boutonnieres herself! They are all made out of feathers and wheat - I love the uniqueness of them.

Aren't these mini wine barrels just the cutest? They were made the brides father and used as centerpieces. Small grape clusters were at the base of each barrel which matched perfectly with the bottle corks that served as place card holders.

And, at the reception, Madeline and her team worked their magic as they always do - the banquet tables were dressed in floor length gold satin linens, gold organza overlays, gold satin napkins, chocolate brown chair covers and matching chocolate table runners. The ceiling was draped in ivory chiffon and spotlighting accented the entire reception.

Thank you so much Madeline for sharing another truly inspiring wedding with my readers today. To see more from the wedding of Liane and Antonio please see here. And, of course to see more from Madeline's Weddings and Events, please visit their web site and blog.

Real Wedding : a non-conventional approach to a vineyard reception

Today's Missouri wedding is just beautiful. Kelsey and Peter were married in lavish traditional affair at the St. George Catholic Church and the couple chose bright and bold hot pinks and lime greens for their décor. For their reception, they took a non-conventional approach. The reception, held at Stone Hill Winery in Hermann, MO, was in a garage with a large deck that overlooked the scenic vineyards. Their wedding guests were served heavy appetizers and were able to tour the various wine cellars and tasting rooms. After sunset, family and friends partied to dueling pianos which kept everyone on their feet all night. The gorgeous photography is by Lindsey of L Photography.
