A Colorful Vineyard Wedding With Mezcal and Paper Picado
This was such a vibrant and colorful vineyard wedding! In case you couldn’t tell, that’s my favorite kind of wedding! There were bright wildflowers everywhere, and rainbow colored papel picado strung throughout the rafters of the barn. There were also thousands of tiny twinkle lights hanging from the rafters. Instead of having one color of cloth napkins for the wedding reception, the couple had napkins in all the matching colors of the papel picado. The couple even had custom traditional mezcal cups made as wedding favors for each of the guests.
The couple were married on the property where the groom grew up in Canby. They had their wedding ceremony in the vineyard, which was a 10-15 minute walk from the reception area. The reception was in a large barn. It was a beautiful and perfect venue for a wedding.
All About The Portraits
We started with a first look between the couple. The light in the farmhouse yard was so sparkly. The bride wore bright red shoes, which gave a pop of color that matched her bouquet. Afterwards, we walked around the vineyard. We took portraits of them walking through the rows of grapevines, and then we took some around a pond with a pretty old tree. The ceremony arbor was made of logs and was decorated with strands of yellow and red flowers. The bride’s friend, who owns Hanna Bloom Floral Design in San Jose, did all the flower work.
As much as I love all the color from this day, I think my favorite images from the wedding are of the wedding guests walking down the long gravel road, to and from the ceremony. I’ve always loved weddings that involved a bit of a walk between one space to the next. Something about it seems more intimate.
