You will not find a cuter or more perfect couple than Courtney and Luke! These two radiate joy and happiness and their laughter and love is nothing short of contagious. Their gorgeous fall winery wedding was filled with family, friends, and good times. Scroll through the pictures of the special day taken by Chris Bauer Photography.
The big day started out with celebrations and excitement with family, friends, and their bridal party.
Honestly, being present for first looks is such an honor (even if I feel partially guilty). They are so intimate and it’s so much fun to be able to see their reactions! The way Luke looked at Courtney as he turned around was filled with the kind of love that’s better than the movies.
While I love couple shots, it’s all in the details for this one.
A color scheme of red and dusty blue with accents of lilac were perfect for this fall day. The crisp red of the bridesmaids dresses complimented the men’s gray suits perfectly.
Courtney and Luke wanted a quaint, rustic feel for their reception which was found in the rich wood of their chargers and ceremony programs. Their centerpieces were also created by using different antique lanterns with candles and mirrored wooden frames to hold the flowers. The dusty blue napkins tied in with the tablecloths found at the head table and special tables.
The whole space was set up by the wonderful crew at Wine Country Gardens and the whole venue was filled with twinkling lights and the gorgeous rays from the sunset.
One of the most endearing qualities about Luke and Courtney is their sense of humor. They tied in phrases from Parks & Rec like, “Treat Yo Self,” and talked nonstop about their favorite tv show lines and how much fun they were having.
Their reception started out with grand entrances and a sweet first dance. This was all followed by the trend-setting Shoe Game. The Sanchez’s guests got to learn a few new things about Courtney and Luke during this fun addition!
And then they danced the night away…
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sanchez! I wish you both so much happiness together (and if you want to get married to each other again, you know where to find me!)
