There’s something inherently romantic about being surrounded by lush vineyards and the sweet scent of grapes in the air. At Jonathan Edwards Winery, you’ll find exactly that – acres of picturesque vineyards, carefully tended to create the finest wines. Imagine exchanging vows under a rustic arbor adorned with delicate flowers, with rows of vines stretching as far as the eye can see. The vineyard’s natural beauty and the serenity of the countryside create an intimate and romantic atmosphere. Jonathan Edwards Winery exudes a timeless and classic elegance in the center of New England. The venue’s charm includes the beautifully restored farmhouse with vaulted ceilings and exposed wooden beams, barrel room and two rooms for getting ready creating a clean, minimalistic backdrop.

From the moment you begin planning to the final toast, you can trust that you’ll be in capable hands, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the joy of the celebration.

Molly and Patrick’s love story began in Cleveland, Ohio. Little did they know that a work assignment would lead them to their wedding day. As they spent time working side by side and attending team dinners, Molly and Patrick gradually got to know each other beyond the professional setting. It wasn’t long before they realized they had more in common than just their work. They both shared a passion for trying new food and drinks, which sparked a natural and effortless connection during their first date at a charming French restaurant. Hours flew by as they chatted and laughed, setting the foundation for many more memorable dates to come.

Patrick planned an unforgettable proposal in German Village. Patrick included all of their favorite things, starting with a delightful cup of coffee at Fox in the Snow. They then took a leisurely walk in Schiller Park, where the perfect moment awaited. Surrounded by the park’s serene beauty and the presence of their closest friends secretly capturing the event, Patrick dropped to one knee.

The wedding planning process was an exciting adventure, and Molly knew she wanted their special day to be held in her childhood state of Connecticut. Touring venues brought them to Jonathan Edwards Winery, a place that felt like destiny had led them there. The winery’s charm and elegance were undeniable, and their love of wine between the couple made it the perfect choice.

Finally, the day arrived, and it was nothing short of magical. Surrounded by the love and support of family and friends, Molly and Patrick stood together between the vines, exchanging vows. The celebration continued into the evening, with laughter, dancing, and toasts to the future. (A small passing thunderstorm during the parent dances made the moment memorable) The venue was adorned with twinkling lights, adding an enchanting glow to the festivities. A love that had blossomed from a chance encounter to a lifetime of happiness together.

As wedding photographers, it was an honor to capture Molly and Patrick’s love on their special day. We wish them a lifetime of love, laughter, and new adventures as they continue their journey together.
