Jessica + Taylor’s Scottish Vineyard Wedding surrounded by mountains, vineyards, family and amazing friends was absolutely gorgeous this past weekend. Soft feather weight clouds filled the sky, a cool breeze flowed over the vineyards and a temp of 78 degrees set the mood for their perfect wedding day.
Taylor’s wonderful family is Scottish, and so keeping with family heritage Jessica + Taylor chose to have a Scottish Vineyard Wedding with Traditional Formal Scottish Kilts for all the men and emerald green bridesmaids dresses for the ladies to match Taylor’s family tartan.
As you know, Brandon and I LOVE Scottish kilts!
As the day began, all the ladies prepped in the beautiful Kaya Cottages filled with so much soft angelic light. The “little ladies” were admiring Jessica’s dress while it was hanging up…seriously adorable! Jessica chose to have her special person Stephanie, one of her matrons-of-honor, help her into her gorgeous wedding dress. Be still our hearts!
The men also got ready in one of the Kaya Cottages. And this time it took a little longer for the men to get ready. Getting into Kilts takes a bit of work.
First look with the bridesmaids! The littles were in there too!
And then it was time for Jessica + Taylors First Look followed by their romantic photos. We LOVE this time!
While the romantic photos were wrapping up we got word that Jessica’s father had arrived and was so excited to see his daughter. So we did Dad’s First Look.
It was all starting
The bagpiper began to play as guests took their seats. It was Wedding Time! Red and white roses adorn the aisle and a mountain view set the back drop for their vows.
Just before the reception we snuck down into the barrel room so Jessica and Taylor could share an intimate moment without anyone else around. Followed by one amazing party!
Congratulations Jessica + Taylor,
May God go with you and bless you,
May you see your children’s children,
May you be poor in misfortune and rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.
May joy and peace surround you both,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now And God Bless you Evermore.
May you live you life with trust, And nurture lifelong affection,
May your lifelong dreams come true for you, Move ever that direction.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
May the light of friendship guide your paths together,
May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home.
May the joy of living for each
other trip a smile from your lips, a twinkle from your eye.
And when eternity beckons,
at the end of the life heaped high with love,
May the good Lord embrace you
with the arms that have nurtured you
the whole length of your joy-filled days.
May the gracious God hold you both
in the palm of His hands.
And, today, may the Spirit of Love
find a dwelling place in your hearts.
Much Love + Blessings,
A big thank you to all the amazing wedding vendors who made the day so beautiful!
