Arista Winery Wedding
Lena and Vince had their wedding in beautiful California wine country. This Arista Winery wedding was beaming with golden sunlight! It was the perfect contast to their coastal engagement session earlier in the year. And you MUST watch their gorgeous wedding video by Wreesman Reels at the end of the post!
“Vince is originally from Chicago, and I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but we met in Southern California. For us, I guess good things came in threes. We met three days before I was supposed to move out of Los Angeles to live with my parents, and about three months before I was supposed to move across the country to start law school in New York. When we met, we knew that being together would mean a minimum of three years of long distance. He was in his third year of Orthopedic Surgery residency in Orange County, had three years of training left, and I would need the same to finish my schooling as well. Both being wary of long distance (him admittedly more than me), we didn’t think it would ever work out. He even says that on our first few dates, he thought each date might be the last time he’d ever see me. But we did keep seeing (and FaceTiming) each other, and eventually one cross-country trip led to another, and then weekend visits turned into staying with each other for a month or two at a time over winter or summer breaks. Eventually, he moved to Jackson, Mississippi for his fellowship training, and that is where he proposed, almost three years from the day we met. ”
“We really wanted our wedding to feel intimate and personal, as though we were inviting everyone to our backyard for a garden party, so it was important for us to have a lot of personal and rustic touches. ”
