Kayla and Cody had a perfect day for their outdoor ceremony at the picturesque Zenith Vineyards in Salem, Oregon. They exchanged their vows under a crisp blue sky spotted with fluffy white clouds. With its lush green lawns and expansive grounds, the vineyard set the perfect scene for a relaxing, rustic chic celebration of this adorable couple. And of course, provided some amazing wine for a special toast during the ceremony!
Kayla was gorgeous in her lace, mermaid-cut gown with its tiered skirting and sweetheart neckline. She paired it with delicate pearl accessories and a fingertip veil for a classically elegant look. Drawing inspiration from the deep hue of the winery’s celebrated Pinot Noir, Kayla’s bridesmaids’ rich plum colored dresses were the perfect compliment to the vineyard surroundings. Cody and his groomsmen were handsome in three piece suits with ties in the day’s signature plum shade and Kayla’s show stopping bouquet of calla lilies, wildflowers and greenery completed the theme.
Floral accents at the reception playfully picked up on the wine-toned color scheme and fun details like lanterns filled with corks added to the rustic chic feel of the day. After a delicious buffet dinner and, of course, plenty of Zenith’s award wining Willamette Valley wine, Kayla and Cody enjoyed dancing with their guests before sneaking outside to snap some sunset photos among the vines. Cheers, Kayla and Cody!
