Jennifer and Dominic- Saltwater Farm Vineyard
Dom and I had the good fortune of meeting four years ago when I joined his team at work. We became friends quickly and each day discovered something new that we had in common. After being together for over 3 years, the list of “our favorite things” grew and grew. After getting engaged in Washington DC over Labor Day weekend, we decided our wedding day should be reflective of the things we liked best, which meant transforming our favorite things into a day…. our wedding day.
The tone of the wedding was set once we sent the Save the Dates… Eat, Drink, and be Married. This is what we wanted for us and our guests.
We visited many traditional and non-traditional wedding venues in Connecticut, but one consistently bubbled to the top of our favorite list, Saltwater Farm Vineyard. The location is beautiful; and the rustic backdrop served as a blank slate that allowed us to create a day that was reflective of things we liked and wanted to share with our family and friends. An Acapella group greeted guests as they entered the Vineyard. Mason jars with one of our favorite drinks were passed. The raw bar was around the corner; and more Hors d’œuvres were waiting. The dinner was incredible and consisted of some of our favorite combinations, grilled cheese and roasted tomato soup, filet and seafood. And the dessert bar offered guests a sampling of some of our favorite treats.
The colors gave the Vineyard a modern look; navy (one of our favorites) with silver accents. The flowers had a clean spring look – white tulips, roses, and hydrangeas. And the fun continued with the dance party, bonfire, and candy buffet.
It was a special day, filled with love, happiness, family and friends. It was great to see so many of our friends and family enjoying the day; and we felt grateful to be surrounded by the people that are most important in our lives.
