Hurricane Florence was coming to the East Coast. The weather forecast kept changing and televisions were stuck on the Weather Channel. Bianca and Stephen’s Williamsburg Winery wedding was scheduled for when the hurricane was supposed to hit Virginia. They watched and waited, and waited and (praise the Lord!) the hurricane changed directions! And it barely rained on their wedding day! How lucky did these two get?!!!
Stephen and Bianca’s gorgeous navy blue and burgundy, Williamsburg Winery wedding was just perfection! Bianca wore a flowing wedding gown with lace details. This dress had beautiful buttons down the back, which went perfectly with her lace veil. And her blue earrings, given to her by her mother, were the perfect extra detail (and her something blue!). Bianca and her girls were full of smiles and laughter all day, and I don’t think Bianca stopped smiling during the entire wedding day! She was just so joyful to be marrying the love of her life.
Stephen wore a navy blue tuxedo and had custom cuff links, which added the perfect extra detail to his draper wedding day look. Stephen was calm, and ready to see his soon-to-be wife during their First Look! Their first look was such a beautiful moment. Smiles all around (like I said, I don’t think they stopped smiling all day!). And it was a sweet moment for their closest friends, too! Their bridal party had the chance to watch the entire First Look.
They had an imitate ceremony with their closest friends and family, some of whom flew across the ocean to see these two get married! And after the ceremony they were able to celebrate with all of their guests! They even played a game during their reception, which was a European-inspired wedding game. And they enjoyed German-chocolate cake, also inspired by Bianca’s heritage since she is German. It was so special to see so many of their friends and family from across the globe come together celebrate their marriage and love! Congrats to the newlyweds!
The detail on her wedding gown was so soft and romantic!Bianca’s sister and mother (both from Germany), helped her get ready for her big day!These girls were so joyful and excited for their dear friend! I love that Daniel caught Stephen’s nose crinkle!
Isn’t she just gorgeous?!First Look!These two!!! They are just two gorgeous people in love! A favorite!Bianca, you are gorgeous!!!
They were so joyful, all day long!
Such a moment! Bianca is standing with Stephen’s dad and her parents, watching Stephen and his mom dance. Such pretty details! And three cakes – can we say, yum?!These bridesmaids planned a game during the reception. All the tables had sheets of paper with a random list on it. If the guest was some how connected to the item on the list (like, over 6ft tall or blue eyes), they had to stand up at the appropriate time. Bianca and Stephen had to guess how all the guests were connected!
I love this! Both moms dancing the night away!We were able to go down into the barrel room at the Williamsburg Winery to get some very romantic portraits!Vendor Love:
