Winery, Wine, and a Wedding

“The first kiss and the first glass of wine are the best.”
― Marty Rubin

What is more pleasurable, comfortable, aesthetic, and quaint than an intimate outdoor wedding at a winery. In Delaware, you can find that place at Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes, Delaware.

A Break In the Clouds

This past week has been full of rain and grey skies, but this Morning Cup of Wedding’s couple were lucky enough to get a break in the clouds on their big day. Kerry Harrison of Kerry Harrison Photography got the timing just right before the big storm hit on the grounds of Hagley Museum and Library. Talk about calm before the storm too. The garden scenery is so serene and romantic. I’d like to think that peek of sunshine coupled with the bright yellow of the train car are signs for a bright and happy marriage for Laura and Adam.

Fire The Cannon!

Morning Cup of Wedding is here to launch you into the week…with a CANNON! Angela and Richard really knew how to use a historical venue to the most awesome potential. Their wedding reception at Hagley Museum and Library had a strong start with a cannon demonstration, starting off their marriage a literal bang! Their lovely wedding cake, which was transported all the way from Virginia, nicely complimented the mother of the groom’s homemade, traditional Vietnamese gelatin cake. One of my favorite touches were the large origami-like flowers that hung with the puff balls from the ceiling. They made a great decorative atmosphere with their memorizing detail. Not to mention the great atmosphere in Hagley’s gallery I! The low wooden beams give the crisp space a delightful mix of classically simple and rustic farmhouse.

Full of rustic charm and classic style, the Hagley Soda House offers both a unique ceremony and reception space. The grounds are just perfect for those memorable shots. Love the covered bridge kiss!

Perfect Pair and the Perfect Day

I’m going to hope you’re in love this close to Valentines Day, because if you’re not you’re going to fall in love with this Morning Cup of Wedding. This is probably one of the most perfect weddings I’ve seen yet. Its simple with elegance and style and absolutely filled to the brim with joyful people. The bouquets and florals by The Twisted Vine Wedding and Event Florals carry theme of delicate but breathtaking. Their design is classic, but the colors and the fullness are just sort of WOW! Even the weather couldn’t help but smile on Rose’s and David’s big day. Although her chosen something blue was her super cute blue sole Betsy Johnson heels, you couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful blue sky. The Heritage Shores Club had the perfect spots for the Twisted Oaks Studio to catch amazing moments with their great photography.
