On December 3, 2016, I had the opportunity to photograph a winter wedding at the Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery in Elizabethtown, North Carolina.
T (the bride) told me early on that she wanted her wedding setting to incorporate water and the outdoors. In my humble opinion, her venue choice of Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery incorporated both nature elements beautifully!!
Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery provided gorgeous lakeside accomodations, including quaint, comfortable, well-appointed lake-side cabins. The cabins were both rustic and modern, and served as wonderful "getting ready" spaces for the bride and groom and their bridal party members. The bride was able to look out over the lake and her ceremony area from her large patio sliding glass door. As she was preparing for her ceremony, the nearby ballroom was being transformed into a beautiful, sweet, Christmas wedding space - complete with a gorgeous Christmas tree decorated with sparkling twinkle lights and ornaments. Candy canes and wintry centerpieces and table accents further added to the seasonal theme of the reception space.
T's dress was exquisite, and her bridesmaid's dresses perfect as well:
Equally beautiful were the bride's blue beaded shoes, tied with matching ribbon:
The couples rings, and the bride's jewelry, were stunning:
Best of all, the couple incorporated their three dogs into the wedding and bridal party!!!
Just prior to the ceremony, the bride took a few quiet moments to quietly contemplate and prepare for her ceremony:
The bride and groom exchanged their vows surrounded by family and friends on the Landing on Vineyard Lake. It's a well-designed ceremony area, with built-in amphitheater/stadium-style bench seating overlooking the landing and lake.
I loved photographing this couple's winter wedding on the lake!!!
Wishing them all the bride and groom a lifetime of happiness in the years ahead!!!
