After Gustavo popped the question on a beautiful December morning by the ocean in his home country, Portugal, he and Alexia got to work on planning the perfect wedding back in the states. They knew they wanted something rustic, with wide open spaces and an outdoor ceremony space. They found Over the Vines in Edgerton, Wisconsin and fell in love with its picturesque setting and idyllic barn. It doesn’t hurt that this venue boasts it’s very own vineyard too!
Alexia and Gustavo wanted a laid back, fun wedding that guests could relax and enjoy, since some would be traveling from Europe to share the day with them. The family style setting inside the barn offered the feel of a more Euro-style wedding and allowed guests to converse and revel in each other’s company. The grounds of Over the Vines offered stunning photographic opportunities and the bucolic whimsy of the barn and all of it’s country details set just the right tone for this easygoing couple’s vision of their perfect wedding.
The rustic elegance of this farm-like setting provided the perfect backdrop to Alexia’s bridesmaids’ gossamer baby blue dresses and Alexia looked as if she floated on air in her multi-tiered, organza and lace, princess-style ball gown. Gustavo and his groomsmen were smashing in their traditional tuxedoes, proving that you can have a fun, laid-back wedding and still dress to the nines!
