Can I just say it was VERY hard for me to select the images for this post. If Ryan & Heidi weren't such insanely good photographers- my job might have been made a little easier. It also didn't help that this gorgeous couple, Bridgette and Ryan (yes, I know, another Ryan) were super sweet and that all their locations were nothing short of amazing! Come on guys, do you know how hard it is creating blog posts!
So here are the details. This wedding was set at Poderi Crisci Vineyard, you may have heard of it, a rather fine Italian inspired vineyard set in the rolling countryside of Waiheke. They happen to also have a wine cellar, with the story book doors and floor to ceiling stacked barrels. Overall it's authentically the closest thing you get to Italy over here, and believe me I'd know having lived in Tuscany myself. Styling this wedding was all too easy with a venue like this, and some of the personal elements provided by Bridgette were the perfect addition. The hand-crafted guest name tags she made were so good I was contemplating hiring her to create stationery for one of our other weddings! The gorgeous ceremony arch turned out better than our design plans, thanks to the florist extraordinaire Wildflower. So that's about it from me, I'll let you get on and enjoy the photos!
P.S Heidi & Ryan are very cool and uber talented, as you may notice. We'd love to work with them again, so can someone please book us all in again?!
Oh and yes, as you can probably tell, I quite liked this architecturally designed Waiheke house where Bridgette got ready.
