Kate + Scott | Villa Bellezza Winery, Pepin, WI

Kate and Scott tied the knot at the lovely Italian Vineyard, Villa Bellezza in Pepin, WI. It was a beautiful fall day with all sorts of weather conditions. First snow in the morning followed by clouds, rain, and then sunshine. Thankfully Kate was prepared for the cold with her elegant fur stole and Scott with his dapper tweed suit.

Kate and Scott didn’t miss a single detail when planning their wedding. Pheasant feathers, pampas grass, beautiful oranges, pinks, and various shades of green made for a spectacular color palette.  The stone architecture of the villa and the magic of the piazza exuded romance under the stars.

Guests were provided warm camel colored throw blankets as they gathered for the ceremony in the vineyard pavilion. Kate was stunning as she walked to the altar wearing a cathedral veil and blusher. Many tears of joy and laughter were shared as family and friends witnessed Kate and Scott read personally written heartfelt vows to each other.

After the ceremony, guests headed inside for cocktail hour to enjoy various drinks and the signature Fall Pumpkin Sangria with Bourbon. Following cocktail hour, Kate and Scott’s reception took place in the beautiful Sala Grande. The vaulted ceiling and warm wooden trusses felt like a European fairytale. Kate and Scott entered the room from the 7 arched balcony and headed right into their first dance in the center of the room. To top it all off, guests and the couple enjoyed the sweets table after dinner featuring delicious Italian Cannoli.

Wishing Kate and Scott, and their amazing families a lifetime of happiness! I’m so thankful to have been a part of this gorgeous fall wedding with some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Grazie!
