Rustic Pink Military Wedding at French Valley Vineyards

Where do I start with today's wedding? Honestly, this wedding may have a little bit of everything that I love. You get one great couple including a man in uniform. The venue is a lovely vineyard that even includes a rustic barn for the reception plus a stunning view for the ceremony. The bride is all smiles and her hair will make you jealous. The reception has details at every turn including drinking jars with pretty pink striped straws. And to top it all off, the couple snuck away for some photos in an open field. Kathryn and Joshua sure know how to make a wedding come together! A big hug to Dan and Melissa Photography for this gorgeous rustic submission!

French Valley Vineyards was the perfect setting for the country & rustic wedding - a beautiful barbie doll bride and her handsome military man. It was a warm September day and awesome for an outdoor wedding between the grape vines. The reception took place inside the barn and was perfect for the shabby chic decor. Katie and Josh had their first kiss as a married couple beneath the traditional military arch of swords. It was amazing!
