Maddie met Matt when she came in to interview for the hostess position at the restaurant where he worked as a bartender. While she waited to see the manager, Matt kept her water glass full and the two made small talk. Maddie got the job and soon they were part of the same group of friends. At a work outing for drinks one night, the whole crew was at a table relaxing and sharing stories, when the music picked up and Maddie, who loves to dance, couldn’t convince anyone to get up on the floor with her. At least not until Matt came back from the bar with the next round. He started dancing with her right away. They danced all night, and it wasn’t long before their relationship blossomed. This fun-loving couple chose to get married at DeLille Cellars in Washington State because of its upscale casual style, outdoor ceremony space and of course, its delicious wines! After the ceremony, which took place beside a wine barrel altar, under a wooden arbor decked out with lush florals, Maddie and Matt had fun posing for portraits among the vines.
Maddie made a beautiful boho bride in her A-line gown with its full flowing skirting and sheer lace bodice detailing. She finished her look with a crown of flowers and sparkling jeweled sandals. Her bridesmaids wore non-matching gowns in wine-like colors ranging from pale taupe and blush to rich red and burgundy. They all carried lush bouquets of roses and eucalyptus with wildflower accents and had their hair styled in boho-chic half-updos with braided crowns. Matt and his groomsmen also went for a non-matching look. Each guy wore a three-piece suit but in different colors and styles to play up their individuality. You can see, this is one wedding party that had fun with fashion, they looked great!
At the reception, which took place on the patio outside the winery’s Euro-style chateau, tables were set with classic white linens and gold flatware. Centerpieces were comprised of several vases, each containing a single blush rose and eucalyptus, large lanterns and votive candles. To complete the tablescapes, a single sprig of rosemary sat on each napkin and a bottle of rosemary infused olive oil was placed at each seat, not only did they enhance the bohemian decor, but they made delicious favors. Wooden signage was placed throughout the space and guests were treated to a multi-course dinner under the vintage-inspired chandeliers that hung from the tent’s fabric-draped ceiling. After dinner, it was time to dance! After all, that was what brought this adorable couple together in the first place. Congratulations Maddie and Matt!
