A Jonathan Edwards Winery wedding | Ali+John

Connecticut vineyard wedding | Winery wedding

Ali and John were married at St. Patricks in Mystic CT, with a gorgeous reception that followed at one of my favorite spots: Jonathan Edwards Winery!  Both John and Ali got ready at the Mystic Marriott and Spa, so we kinda hopped between rooms to see what was going on—

these cool earrings were on loan to Ali, and we were both nervous about losing them!!

this little guy was from when Ali was a kid. As you can see, he had not fared well from the wild night the evening before….

Meanwhile in John’s room, he was given a special token honoring his Grandparents who had passed.

check out this sequence of photos. A lady on horseback came by and John and Ali tried to pet him. He was a bit skittish, but DID dive ion for a bite of the bouquet, which was filled with herbs! I told Yumiko at Hana Floral Design that she made the bouqet simply too tasty
