From the very first date Stefania & Darren knew they were perfect together. Their love of adventure, travel, great food and fun bonded them instantly. When it came to planning their wedding, the couple was totally in sync with their vision for the big day.
Stefania and Darren's romantic wedding was filled with personal and meaningful choices. The farm venue was inspired by Darren’s youth and family; he grew up enjoying all that farm life had to offer by often visiting his grandfather’s farm. Stefania’s Italian heritage and love of Italy inspired the decor of the reception as well as the overall vibe of the day.
The day started with a beautiful outdoor ceremony, guests stayed warm with blankets & hot apple cider while Stefania and Darren exchanged vows. Following the ceremony guests moved inside to enjoy cocktail hour and a bespoke scotch bar. The couple chose to share their passion for fine scotch with their guests and paired each scotch with tasting notes and personal stories.
Some of the personal details of the reception included a large map at the guest book table that showed where the couple had traveled alone and together. This was paired with travel photos of the couple and a vintage luggage card box. Close friends and family shared emotional speeches and guest enjoyed a carefully selected soundtrack. Stefania and Darren’s wedding day ended with a full dance floor and delicious cake.
