Raphael Winery New York Wedding

This couple had their wedding at Raphael Winery in New York and it was all about transcending cultures and celebrating with their favorite people. These two make each other laugh so much; it’s so evident in their photos. Raphael Winery is a family-owned winery where European grapes are harvested entirely by hand. This wedding had rustic elegance with customized corn hole yard games to wanders amidst sprouting vineyards and working wine cellars.

It’s all in the Details

Finding ways to highlight the value of family and heritage was extremely important to Lauren and Josh. There were antiques from the bride’s grandmother, thank you gifts of Canadian maple syrup from the groom’s homeland, Quebec, and wooden flower planter centerpieces handmade by the bride’s father. Not to mention the seating signage was designed by none other than the groom himself. Careful attention was paid to every detail.

Congratulations you two!
