Peyton and Collin's Milagro Winery Wedding
A fun bride and groom from the very beginning. I officially met Peyton and Collin through FaceTime, as they lived in Atlanta, and ended up talking to them for a couple of hours about their wedding details. Peyton told me she was looking for a very chill vibe for dinner and the cocktail hour, so I suggested my favorite album of all time - Urban Flora by Alina Baraz and Galimatias. Immediately, Peyton’s response was...YES! They loved that album and the whole vibe, and thus began the process of booking me.
I remember going to Milagro Winery and feeling like it was the absolute perfect fit for Peyton and Collin. Their style, personality, and overall essence was apparent throughout the whole venue. I was so glad about the music choices we made from that first phone call as it really helped bring that chill vibe they were hoping for.
There wasn’t a single person during the ceremony that didn’t have watery eyes the moment Collin said “I do.” Our officiant took us from laughing to understanding that love is rare, and should be cherished. I think I knew, as well as everyone else, that this couple really understood what cherishing love is.
After the ceremony, Peyton and Collin left with Aline - our wonderful photographer - to continue taking photos. I announced that cocktail hour was open and brought the crowd to where the drinks and hor d’oeuvres were. After about an hour or so it was time for the grand entrance. I prepared the bridal party along with our bridge and groom as they came out dancing from the main house all the way onto the dance floor. After practically everyone joined in on dancing, I asked them to find their seats. It was then that Collin took his bride by the hand to begin their first dance.
Afterward the caterers brought food around for everyone to enjoy. As dinner hour came to an end, champagne was poured to get the family ready for speeches. When those were wrapped up, I announced to 5 unaware couples that they would be joining me on the dance floor for my infamous Dance Off. This time around, Grandma and Grandpa won the crowd over completely and took the prize wine bottle home.
Once the Dance Off was won, we moved on to the dance floor for a slow dance while Peyton and Collin went to cut their cake and give each other a bite of desert.
With the cake cut and served, we continued dancing the night away until it was time for that last dance. I brought them out to the middle of the dance floor for a group dance, and lastly, a group hug, after which we began the grand exit to send the newlyweds off.
Thank you Peyton and Collin, for the opportunity to help you celebrate your big day! We’ll continue talking about music, I’m sure, as the years go by.
A big shout out to our friends at the Milagro Winery, Tina at www.tinaqphotography for running the photobooth, and our wonderful photographer Aline of http://www.alinemarin.com/
