Michelle and Tyler had planned their 2020 summer wedding long before knowing that the state government would be shutting things down. So when they were left with the decision about what to do considering government imposed guest count limitations, they opted to go ahead and tie the knot in a wonderful, intimate ceremony with family and friends at Morais Vineyards. They rescheduled their big celebration for 2022. Everything worked out perfectly! Their 2021 wedding day was perfect and lovely and their 2022 wedding was a fabulous celebration with extended family and friends as well.
I began photographing their details in the bridal suite at Morais Vineyards as Michelle enjoyed being pampered as her hair and make up was completed. Both her and Tyler’s details set the stage for their perfect day.
Michelle gifted her bridesmaids with beautiful robes and they toasted with champaign together before Michelle’s mother helped her into her wedding dress.
After she was dressed and ready to go, I photographed Michelle in and outside of the bridal suite. What a gorgeous bride!
Then it was time for her first look with her father. What a wonderful moment between the two!!!
Then Michelle and her ladies posed for some portraits and time together outside as well. What a lovely group of ladies!
Meanwhile, Tyler was preparing for his Big Day as well.
He also enjoyed some quality time with his guys.
It wasn’t long until he was ready for his first look with Michelle. What a precious moment AGAIN! I have grown to love saying that after the microweddings from last year!
After spending some time together near the little wooden bridge, they were ready for some romantic couples’ portraits around the venue.
We strolled over to the glass atrium for that art nouveau backdrop that Morais is known for!
It was a gorgeous and sunny day so we weren’t short on warmth, love and sunshine!
And alongside that near Tiffany blue/turquoise backdrop, we recreated a bit of a Tiffany commercial style shoot!
What fun indeed! We also photographed inside thee ballroom space prior to it being set up for the reception.
That Morais staircase and balcony are so romantic and I especially love that staircase in black and white.
Michelle and Tyler were ready to tuck away and prepare to walk down the aisle to the pergola!
And it was a wonderful ceremony. Tyler and Michelle read to each other as if speaking back with themselves a year ago when they first tied the knot. It was one of the most clever ideas I’ve heard in 2020 and 21.
They also read their original vows from last year and it was so sweet to hear them all over again! And to know that they now have the dog they had dreamed of! (:
Once again, they sealed it with a kiss and we ran off for a few quick portraits in the Mroais Vineyards wine cellar.
We then reconviened for extended family portraits and bridal party portraits after the bride and groom took a much needed water and h’or devours break.
It may have been warm, but that didn’t stop this supportive group from posing with Michelle and Tyler out in the heat!
Michelle and Tyler then took a moment to view their reception space prior to the start of the celebration.
As they danced around, they took in the lovely details and the light streaming in from the windows and doors.
It was such a lovely set up with classic blush tones and one of my favorite details…Michelle’s third grade students had given them marriage advice and they had the advice strategically placed on each table!
Each piece of advice was so adorable!!!
The space was bright and inviting as were the escort cards themselves.
And what a sweet and simple cake from Amanda!
Soon it was time for their grand entrance.
Michelle and Tyler danced their first dance AGAIN. LOL. I can’t help myself.
Michelle’s dad gave the welcome speech and then Tyler and Michelle hopped outside with us for some golden hour portraits together.
It was a lovely evening and the front facade at Morais had the perfect lighting…the best of the day.
Keep scrolling for more highlights from their Morais Vineyards wedding day! And thank you to these incredible wedding professionals who helped to make their day so very special:
We also went back to the atrium just before the sun disappeared for the evening.
What gorgeous lighting for a gorgeous couple!
After strolling by the vineyard, we made our way back toward the little bridge and to the ballroom.
Then it was time for the festivities to begin. There were the toasts (always a joy to hear more about my couples!) and then my favorite..the daddy/daughter and mother/son dances.
Then Michelle tossed her bouquet right into the hands of a very special little girl! And Michelle and Tyler cut their silky cake before it was time for me to head out.
Congratualtions Michelle and Tyler AGAIN! I have so enjoyed serving you both and I hope to get to serve you in the future AGAIN!
And thank you to these incredible folks who helped to make their wedding day so very special! Keep scrolling to see more highlights from their very special day!
