Niner Wine Estates Wedding 2021 Sunset

This Niner Wine Estates Wedding may have been one of the hottest days we’ve photographed in a long time, but Marissa and Alex were the coolest! They married on their 8 year anniversary at one of the loveliest vineyards on the Central Coast.

Summer Wedding Gown

I love Marissa’s Alexandra Grecco wedding gown. Made of ivory silk, it is the perfect cut and fabric for a warm summer wedding in Paso Robles. Ever so beautiful, she wears her hair in loose waves and completes her bridal look with a long veil and Jimmy Choo heels. For the evening reception, Marissa changes into a sparkly Sarah Seven dress. Alex looks perfectly dapper in his tuxedo from The Black Tux.

Following their first look, Marissa and Alex exchange their handwritten wedding vows privately.

Tray Passed ‘Frosé’

Upon their arrival to Niner Wine Estates, wedding guests cool down with ‘frosé’- tray passed frozen rosé drinks with floral accents. A large acrylic welcome sign welcomes everyone by the guestbook. The seating chart is also a beautiful statement of piece – acrylic with white writing.

The Ceremony

Because Niner Wine Estates is already so picturesque, two tall floral crescents with greenery marks the couple’s ceremony spot. The large heart-shaped grove of trees on the estates property is always within view of its visitors. I love that the heart shape is totally wedding appropriate at Niner Wine Estates.

The Reception

Marissa and Alex are very close to their family. With wedding catering through Niner Wine Estates, dinner is served family style at a long rectangular table at the head of the reception area.

The Perfect Sunset

Sunset photos during Niner Wine Estates weddings are some of my favorites. At the top of the property we enjoy epic views towards the ocean and mountains. Marissa and Alex share a few moments away from their guests to reflect on their beautiful wedding day and share champagne.
