Sunny Folino Estate Wedding

Oct 19, 2022

The vines quietly ruffled as the cool October breeze blew across them. It was the perfect amount to just keep the temperature outside nice and cool. Joe stood with his eyes closed down one of the vine rows within the vineyard.

He didn’t want to mess anything up!

We were getting them set up for their first look among the vines. He knew Marissa was standing just one row over and he definitely didn’t want to look too early! He was so excited for the moment so he was being as patient as he could be. As Marissa was getting her dressed fluffed and ready for the big reveal, tears started to form around Joe’s eyes.

This moment was one he had waited for, for awhile!

Now it was just seconds away. Joe and Marissa slowly started to walk towards the end of their rows. Knowing that once they made it, their other half would be standing at the end. The anticipation and love was building up! As they took their final step and turned to look, all Joe could do was grab his eyes to try and hold back the tears. He couldn’t believe how beautiful she was in her wedding dress! Just wait till you see this moment below!

It had us all wiping tears away!

He was just so excited. Almost immediately tears started to well-up in Marissa’s eyes too! This moment, this day, they had been waiting for was finally here! They were finally going to say “I Do” and become husband and wife! It finally was hitting both of them. Before heading back to the rest of the bridal party, Marissa and Joe shared private vows with each other. What a special touch to just take a moment for the two of them to share their love and commitment to each other!

One of my new favorite parts of the day!

Trust me, there were a lot of favorites from this sunny Folino Estate wedding! Marissa and Joe’s choices for bridal party attire were out of this world! Marissa’s girls were in mismatched dresses all with burgundy and light pink theme to them! Stunning! Combined with the guys in navy blue suits and the backdrop of the stone from Folino Estate, it was screaming fall vibes!

I was in love! May be a new favorite!

Yet again, just wait till you see below! You will be obsessed too! The detail and color combinations spread throughout the entire day were spot on! These two envisioned the most beautiful day to celebrate with their loved ones! I am so beyond excited that it turned out so beautifully for them! Throughout their engagement journey, Marissa and Joe have become close friends! Always making appearances at the HMP Game Nights and just constantly staying in touch!

It is just an absolutely honor to call them friends!

I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you two! I know it is going to be something bright! Can’t wait to see you at the next game night, this time you get to join the married couples! Yay! Congrats again you two! You had the most beautiful day!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
