Where do I even begin with this one?? From the second I arrived at Stone Tower Winery, my jaw dropped. I couldn’t get over the massive property. I’ve dubbed it the Disney World of wineries! Aside from the gorgeous property and stunning views, I was so excited to see my couple. The last time I saw Alyssa and Ryan was at their engagement session last October and it was so much fun getting to know them both. They are middle school sweethearts and so their wedding day was so special for all the friends and family who have watched these two grow up together.
The first thing I did after arriving to Stone Tower was check out the ceremony space. With the most beautiful mountain and vineyard backdrop, there stood a large wooden cross adorned with flowers. Alyssa’s brother was responsible for hand crafting the cross himself. Not only that, but he also made several other things including the flower boxes on each of the tables in the reception. I absolutely loved all the personal touches throughout the day. Quite possibly the most personalized touch was Alyssa’s wedding gown. Her custom dress was made from her mother’s original wedding dress. It was so beautiful on her!!
After they finished up with toasts and cake cutting, this reception turned into a full blown PARTY! Alyssa and her father started off with a traditional father and daughter slow dance, but it quickly turned into one of the cutest surprise choreographed dances I have ever seen! I can’t think of a better way to kick off a reception and get guests on the dance floor! I seriously thought I was in the midst of some professional dancers! From start to finish, this wedding was absolutely perfect and I am so grateful to have been a part of Alyssa and Ryan’s special day. I hope you all enjoy these highlights!
