Megan + Brandon, Villa Bellezza Winery, Lake Pepin WI

A fall wedding featuring striking florals, a beautiful vineyard, and an Italian Villa? Yes please! Megan and Brandon’s wedding was filled with beautiful details while being surrounded by people who supported and shaped their relationship. Brandon and his groomsmen wore classic black suits while the bridesmaids wore dusty pink which was the perfect complement to Megan’s champagne and lace wedding gown.

Although it was a crisp and sunny fall day, the wind decided to grace us with its presence. Megan and Brandon didn’t let the wind stop them from heading to the nearby marina for photos by Lake Pepin. The wind at the waters edge was intense and cold. Photographing the two of them was a whirlwind of intensity but it was as though time stopped for Megan and Brandon as they held each other calmly.

The wind seemed to calm down a bit just in time for the wedding in the Vineyard Pavilion. Afterwards, guests headed inside to the Great Hall for dinner. The two story room is warmed by heavy wooden trusses spanning the above space. Tables were draped in gold lace table cloths with centerpieces of gorgeous blooms and Pompas grass.  After dinner Guests enjoyed Italian Gelato for dessert before dancing the night away.

Megan and Brandon, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. Salute!
