The inspiration of the day was their love of wine! For Julie & Rob, there is nothing better than wine tastings, cuddling on the couch and watching movies. I have to second that!
They met in Las Vegas at Hofbrauhaus but now live in Virginia. With both having family in town, they knew a Las Vegas wedding was the way to go. Their wedding took place at Dragon Ridge Country Club in Henderson – a gorgeous venue where Julie’s dad is a founding member and avid golf player.
Julie and the girls got ready at Green Valley Ranch and headed to Dragon Ridge. Her beaded gown looked like it was designed with her in mind. Rob was sporting his US Army dress uniform and looked super sharp. The bridesmaid’s dresses and the groomsmen ties color was berry, matching the wine theme.
The outdoor, poolside ceremony, featured wine barrels as aisle markers, and wine colored flowers. During the ceremony, Julie & Rob had a beautiful custom wine box, where they deposited a love letter to each other along with a bottle of wine. At the end of the year, they will read the letter, and drink the wine. This step shall be repeated every year.
The Dragon Ridge reception room is very well designed. Its surrounding windows and chandeliers make it beautiful. But this time, it was even prettier. The couple had bistro lights adorn and light the room, which gave an extra glow to the scene. The color scheme for this wine themed fall wedding was berry and plum. The table numbers were wine bottles, and the candelabra centerpieces were filled with corks. One of the corners of the room featured a wine tasting station for guests.
Now it’s time for the PARTY! Check out how much fun this lively crowd was. I think the big smiles, group hugs, and crazy moves tell it all. Just about every guest was out on the dance floor. The night ended with a sparkler send off. Here are some images from the day.
