Destination Wedding Photographers | Marianne & Jeremiah at First Vineyard

Oh my goodness. So we are so excited to share this wedding with you all today! As I’ve been reflecting back on the first half of our spring wedding season as we gear up for the second half/summer, what stands out to me is just how extremely grateful we are to be a part of and document such incredibly meaningful celebrations. Marianne and Jeremiah’s celebration at First Vineyard is the perfect example! We photographed their wedding in the Bahamas last summer, which was such a fun, bright, and sweetly emotional weekend! I’ve also known Marianne and her family for…well, most of my life (also, you should definitely visit their Bahamas post to read the story of how Marianne and Jeremiah met!), which makes it even more special to be able to be there. They wanted their Kentucky celebration to be a time of honoring and celebrating their families coming together, and all the friends and mentors who have had a part in their lives and relationships. And it was truly such a beautiful celebration!

First Vineyard is a place with a lot of history. As it’s name implies, it was the first commercial vineyard in the United States with links to many different historical figures. But more personally, it is a place near and dear to Jeremiah and his family. He grew up working there, and he and his family have been involved with the vineyard for years. So for this to be the place where they continued the celebration of their marriage was so, so special. Chris and I had an opportunity to walk around the morning of the wedding and explore the magically cool and misty vineyard and grounds, and there’s just such a sense of peace there. We saw the owners taking care of the vines, and some of the four legged inhabitants of the vineyard, and all the hard work that friends and family put into decorating and preparing for the celebration! A short family joining ceremony led by Marianne and Jeremiah took place before dinner and dancing the night away, and ended with a blue moon rising over the vineyard!

Anyway, enough of my rambling! On to some of our favorite images of the day!
