Elegant Folino Estate Wedding

May 2, 2023

“I am really hoping for some rain on my wedding day!”…said no one ever!

It was the complete opposite of what Ali and Tom were hoping for at their elegant Folino Estate wedding.

Even jewelry stores try to bring a positive incentive if there is rain on your wedding day. No one, and I repeat no one, ever hopes for rain! But if it does happen, it makes it a little less of a sting when the interior of your wedding venue is just as gorgeous as the exterior.

Folino Estate provides just that!

As their wedding day was approaching, so was a weekend filled with rain. Ali was starting to stress about the photos and not being able to have the variety she was hoping for if it was a sunny day. Which she had every right to feel that way! I actually had rain for half of my wedding day and was a bit of a mess the morning of knowing things were not going as I had planned.

I knew exactly how she felt!

But with a venue like Folino Estate, the HMP Team was confident that the variety in the photos would still be endless. From beautiful hallways to unique spaces where the wine is created, this venue never runs out of new locations to photograph at! Just wait until you start scrolling through some of the favorites below!

It just keeps getting better!

Especially when you have a couple as gorgeous as Ali and Tom! We swear they have to be models on the side! Each photo oozed so much love for each other. There may not be a bad photo in the mix!

Although it may not have been the weather they had hoped for on their wedding day, Ali and Tom didn’t let it rain on their parade for their elegant Folino Estate wedding! Their day was filled with so much joy and happiness!

The team had the best time capturing each moment.

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
