Vesuvius Vineyards Wedding: Laura and Ryan


January 4, 2022

I am so happy to share that Laura and Ryan are married! After meeting them for their engagement session here at Vesuvius Vineyards, I couldn’t wait for their wedding day. They’re absolutely the sweetest people and their daughter Sydney is adorable, to boot. I knew that their fall wedding day would be stunning – and I was right! They truly made their family front and center for the whole day and it was so special to be a part of it all with them.

I absolutely loved working at Vesuvius Vineyards! This was my first wedding day at this Lincoln County venue – and it was a dream come true. Laura and Ryan chose an elegant fall color palette of navy, burgundy, and ivory that was just stunning. I’m still obsessed with all of the flowers and the arbor from their ceremony! And I loved how many personal touches they really brought to the day. For one, Laura had charms on her bouquet to honor her late father and her brother who couldn’t be with them because he’s overseas. Laura and Ryan also decided to have their daughter be her maid of honor for the ceremony – it was SO sweet. Seriously, what a special way to include their little girl. There wasn’t a dry eye in the whole ceremony!

The newlyweds welcomed a lot of out of town guests for their celebration, so they wanted to make sure everything was perfect and everyone had a great time. I have to admit, Mike the DJ did an incredible job of keeping the dance floor full. I think this might be a wedding that had some of the best dancers I’ve ever seen, ha!! It’s always fun to see my couples get to party with their guests, especially when the music is really going!

Congratulation again Laura and Ryan! I loved your beautiful fall wedding day. Thank you for trusting me with your memories – and for introducing me to this beautiful vineyard. I hope to be back some day! In the meantime, enjoy a look back at your wedding celebration!
