    New York Vineyard Wedding | Elizabeth Millay Photography

    After spending the long weekend with my sweetheart in Central Coast wine country, I’m in the mood for a vineyard wedding. And today’s New York vineyard wedding fits the bill perfectly. It has just the right amount of DIY, a fun atmosphere, lovely florals, and super pretty bridal attire. Oh, and a field of sunflowers.

    Advice for couples planning now? The best advice I can offer is to keep in mind that everything will work out in the end and that compromises are essential. Planning a wedding is a lot of fun, but can be stressful at times. Whenever we became overwhelmed with planning we would always stop, take a break for a few days and just make sure that we were still planning the wedding we both wanted.

    One of our favorite moments of the day was walking into the cocktail hour and getting a chance to see and talk with all of our family and friends. When we walked in, we were so elated and buzzing with excitement after just getting married! It was an incredibly happy moment to finally hug and greet your nearest and dearest.

    How did you make your wedding YOU?

    We love parties and hosting, so we tried to think of everything that would create not just a beautiful wedding, but also a celebration that the guests would really enjoy and have a great time! We were so thankful for our friends and families helping us celebrate our wedding day. We wanted to make sure they had the best time possible time eating, drinking and dancing the night away. 

    I think a wedding with cornhole and an ice cream cart sounds like the most fun wedding ever, don’t you? Congrats to Justine & Patrick on a party well done! And be sure to check out the list of vendors and artists below – so much pretty to give credit for.

    DIY by the bride:

    • Signature drinks – The Greyhound (Patrick and I met at Loyola College in MD and their mascot is the Greyhound)
    • Signature drink sign for the bar – we found a wooden cheeseboard and painted the signature drink on it with a drawing of a greyhound too
    • Flag drink stirrers – I cut wooden dowels and used glitter and paper washi tape for the flags
    • Place cards – I found blank place cards and my sister wrote out the names and table numbers
    • Pie bunting banners – I used burlap, baker’s twine and jute twine and wrote out each letter of the type of pie and tied them to wooden dowels
    • Ice cream sign – found a chalkboard sign and wrote out the flavors we offered
    • Tissue paper garland – used various shades of pinks and metallic – it hung over the dessert area
    • Ice cream bar – found glass clamp jars and tied ribbons around them for the various toppings; wooden spoons and stamped them with our initials and a dessert stamp; tied baker’s twine around each ice cream cup
    • The cornhole boards – we bought them plain and we painted the border and “D” (Delaney) on it ourselves
    • Moss initials that we hung on our chairs – used cardboard letters and used fake moss to cover them up
    • Favor bags for the donuts – bought small white paper bags and stamped ‘midnight dessert’ on each
    • Hotel guest welcome bags (rubber stamp created by Lion in the Sun) – used the mini cooper logo they created for our save the date and thank you cards and stamped them onto each canvas bag

      I was so lucky to attend this wedding and it was absolute perfection. The couple and their families were all so happy and everyone had a great time! Cornhole with Jenny was also a blast:) Love Pellegrini and the J&P
