Viansa Winery: an Harvest Moon Autumn Wedding in Wine Country

Updated: Jan 18, 2022

Whitney and Doug had a perfect autumn wedding at Viansa Winery, the quintessential wine country wedding reception venue with acres of vineyards and grapes ready to burst, the golden sun setting behind the hills during the ceremony as the full harvest moon rose in the vineyard at cocktail hour. Highlights in their Love Story: The groom’s son wore the wolf costume in the ceremony processional as a surprise to the guests that made everyone laugh. When we did their formal wedding portraits in the vineyard, the moon rose up above the hills with the sunset’s light still glowing, a photographers dream! At the end of the night, the groom got onstage for an impromptu song for his new wife Whitney covering “Brown Eyed Girl” (I found a great cover to go with their Love Story that sounded like Doug singing!) Thanks to Laura Fraize and Brooke Altman, wedding planners at ViansaThomas Hughes FilmsWine Country Flowers, Susie Q. Cakes and the band the rocked the house Hip Service. Photography and video Love Story, Melissa Mermin.
