Newport Vineyards Wedding: Chanel and Joshua


It was the perfect start to the first weekend in September, celebrating Chanel & Josh’s love! It was a gorgeous day and couldn’t have been more perfect for a wedding on the grounds at Newport Vineyards. Chanel got ready in a little cottage near to the venue, where she was surrounded by her close girlfriends and soon to be, sisters. Josh and his groomsmen were having fun and getting ready at a nearby hotel.  Chanel and her bridesmaids made sure to celebrate this long, awaited wedding day by sharing a glass of champagne & listening to Celine Dion on repeat! After everyone’s hair and makeup were done, they got into their dresses and headed to Newport Vineyards for some portraits of all the bridesmaids before Josh arrived with his groomsmen.

When it was time for the ceremony, it couldn’t have been a more gorgeous setup. There was a beautiful arbor, with wine barrels decorated with florals. The sun was starting to set, bringing in that beautiful golden light. The ceremony was so beautiful. Hearing their love story, the bond between Chanel and Josh’s family, the longevity of their relationship, and how they honored their loved ones that have passed away was so special. They honored their faith roots and had everyone pray a blessing over their wedding bands, as it was passed around to all of their guests that were seated. They kissed and unbeknownst to them, confetti was shot in the air! It was all joy and laughs as they walked up the aisle, officially as husband and wife! The sun was beginning to set, so we made sure to get some portraits of their full bridal party and of course, gorgeous portraits of the two of them! They walked over to the vineyard, near the parking lot area where Josh surprised Chanel with bringing along his dirt bike. He was so excited to get portraits of the two of them on it! Josh’s smile said it all.

The guests eventually headed inside as the cocktail hour came to an end. All of the tables were lit with candles. The warm wood tones and ambiance inside were so cozy. It was definitely the perfect fit for who Chanel & Josh are. As everyone was seated, their bridal party was announced. Everyone danced on in, with the biggest smiles on their faces. Chanel & Josh made their entrance together, as Mr. and Mrs., then went right into their First Dance. The Best Man and Maid of Honor shared their heartfelt speeches. They shared laughs, tears, and only had kind words to share about the couple.

After speeches and everyone ate their dinner, Chanel and Josh cut the cake, followed by the mother-son dance. After that, the dance floor was open, and the rest of the night was history! There was cake and desserts for everyone. Even little bottles of wine for all of their guests with their dogs on them. Everyone danced the rest of the night away. After having to postpone their special day, they couldn’t have had a better wedding celebration! The joy in the room was palatable and having their wedding, surrounded by all of their close loved ones, meant so much to them.

Such beautiful details were being captured as the bridesmaids and Bride were getting their hair and makeup done.
