Living in one of the top wine-producing states in the country, there is no shortage of good wine. What’s better than good wine you might ask? Drinking good wine at a vineyard wedding! For Clara and Marko’s special day, the couple planned a Willamette Valley Vineyards wedding at Ponzi Vineyards. Everything from the venue to their first look to the party on the dance floor was so incredible!
This gorgeous Oregon vineyard wedding was an absolute dream! I mean, seriously, what better place to celebrate the start of your marriage than at one of the best vineyards in Oregon?!
Clara and Marko arrived at their wedding venue, Ponzi Vineyards, separately and started with some wedding photos with their families. Clara planned the sweetest first look with her dad and three sisters followed by a first look with Marko. Afterward, we took some couples photos around the vineyard and the two of them had a chance to soak in a few quiet moments before the rest of the day’s activities.
The couple’s vineyard wedding ceremony was held out on the lawn with sweeping views of the vineyard and Willamette Valley all around. Clara’s sister sang their entrance song giving the ceremony an extra beautiful touch.
After the ceremony, the couple snuck away for some sunset photos before coming back to greet their guests. We grabbed a quick full group shot with all their loved ones before going inside to get seated for dinner. One of the things Clara and Marko loved most about Ponzi Vineyards was how easily the space flowed between indoors and outdoors. The venue perfectly accommodated their guest size and gave them the scenic views and natural feel they were looking for.
When asked what advice they have for future couples, Clara and Marko shared, “Don’t stress too much! The small details don’t matter and will be such a small piece of the bigger picture.” As an Oregon wedding photographer, I couldn’t agree more! When everything is said and done, it won’t be the details you remember most, it will be the feelings you experienced and the love you felt from family and friends that surrounded you.
