Balistreri Vineyards Wedding for JC and Mark

JC & Mark

Working with JC and Mark on their big day was such a dream. From working with all of the amazing vendors at such a beautiful venue their wedding they couldn't be more perfect. I love the color scheme that these two came up with for their wedding the orange and blue were so well put-together for their fall wedding day. It really popped in the beautiful garden setting at the Vineyard. I absolutely adore this venue because it is so versatile and affordable, the beautiful outside garden as well as the humongous reception space is perfect. Mark and JC had a beautiful sunset ceremony and they did all of their photos before the ceremony, that way they could go straight into the reception after getting married and party all night. Their wedding designer Chikeeh Talker was absolutely amazing to work with. She was on point and helped me so much with getting people for photos and setting up the venue. The catering that they also had was delicious. I had the opportunity to sit at one of the tables as a guest and enjoy the beautiful meal during dinner time.

More about the venue from their website: With room for 250 guests, this spacious setting is filled with natural beauty and modern comforts. During warm weather months, guests can easily utilize both the indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the event with our large garage doors that connect the two areas. Host your ceremony in our outdoor Garden area and enjoy our In-House Catering in the Ballroom, complete with a grand staircase for your big entrance!
