Elegant Vineyard Wedding at Gervasi Vineyard

Gervasi Vineyard Winery Wedding Canton, Ohio

 

Katie and Bryan’s elegant wedding at Gervasi Vineyard was so beautiful.  It was our first wedding back from having Lily, and it was such an AWESOME wedding to kick off our fall season. It was the perfect day with the weather, and everything was so beautiful and elegant.  We started the day at the villas at Gervasi Vineyard.  The villa had the best Tuscan feel, which was perfect since Katie and Bryan love everything that is Italian.  The entire estate has a very Tuscan and Italian feel to the buildings.  Their wedding day was full of romance, elegance, and bits of European Italian flair.

 

The ceremony was in a beautiful church that was her home church of Christ The Servant Parish at Our Lady of Peace Church.  Katie’s uncle officiated for them, which is so beautiful and thoughtful to have a family member take on that role.  A lot of our couples do that.  They have one of their family members or a close friend officiant.  I find that it really helps to bring extra meaning to the ceremony since there is a close connection to that person who is officiating.

 

Once the ceremony was over, we headed over to Gervasi Vineyards to do more portraits of Katie and Bryan and the entire wedding party. The vineyards provided a gorgeous backdrop for their pictures.  They have this beautiful stone archway that had THE BEST light ever, and we rocked a bunch of their portraits just at that one location.  When you find gorgeous light, it is always best to stay in that spot and rock the heck out of it because the light is so amazing.

 

The reception at Gervasi Vineyards was in their open-air reception area.  I was blown away by how much of a European influence the building had.  The open-air arches and doorways with their sweeping fabrics helped to bring that European feel to the wedding.  If Scott and I were getting married again, I would pull for this location because of how open it was.  The breeze would blow through the reception area, providing a casual yet classy evening reception.

 

The day was 100% magical and we are so honored that Katie and Bryan selected us to be their photographers! Thank you so much!
