Okay, yall, if these two don't make it to their 50th anniversary, no one will.
Daryl and Nick had a fantastic wedding day at Zorvino Vineyard in Sandown, New Hampshire. I LOVED that they kept everything with the rustic, vineyard theme. Lots of burlap and wine corks incorporated into the décor. So much fun!
In addition to her gorgeous wedding dress, Daryl wore pearls and cowboy boots. I LOVED her boots and that all the bridesmaids and several of the guests also wore boots.
The ceremony was awesome. There was a lot of laughter, as you can tell from the photos below. The middle photo was when Nick promised, in his vows, "even when we are old and wrinkly I will still grab your @ss". Needless to say everyone got a kick out of that!
They also incorporated a tradition from the Greek Orthodox Church. Nick's mom and sister presided over the crowning ceremony.
One of the coolest parts of their reception was their first dance. Daryl and Nick had narrowed down their choices for their first dance song to their top 3. At Daryl's bridal shower, they had the attendees vote on which song would be the one they danced to. The winner was Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud", and it was awesome. It was fun seeing their faces as the DJ started the song and they realized which song had been chosen. I thought it was a neat way to include guests in the wedding, since typically the people who attend bridal showers are also wedding guests.
If you attended their wedding and didn't have fun, it's your own fault. They had a fantastic DJ and incorporated a lot of fun things to make it special. I LOVED that they had random picture frames that were passed around the dance floor! People had a great time posing with them and it was a fun way to make sure they had a photo of everyone.
The cake cutting was also hilarious. Nick's faces were priceless! Needless to say, they know how to have fun together.
Everything about their day was awesome and I'm so glad I was able to be part of it. It was definitely the perfect wedding to kick off the 2015 season!
And, I couldn't end this post without including my FAVORITE photo of the day:
CONGRATULATIONS Daryl & Nick!
As always, without the rest of the vendors, I wouldn't have nearly as many beautiful things to photograph, so if you like what you see in the photos, here's the info on the rest of Daryl & Nick's wedding day team:
