A move across the country and two proposals later, Toni and Liny got to have their special day!

With a love for wine and one of their first dates was at a winery, it only made sense that they tied the knot at Callaway Vineyard & Winery.

“The vineyards and mountains surrounding the venue are breathtaking. Sunset makes for an evening you won’t forget,” exclaim the brides. “The other big seller for us was the getting-ready suites. The venue had two beautiful suites that didn’t feel like one of us was getting the ‘grooms” suite. They have a sign that can be changed from ‘fellas' to ‘bellas'! Only venue that made us feel truly welcomed,” recall the brides.

After getting ready with their respective parties, Toni and Liny were able to share a first look with one another which easily became one of their favorite moments of the day. “This was surprising because we were both hesitant to see each other before the wedding. It was one of the few times we were able to just spend with one another privately, slowing down the day, and just being in the moment. Plus, we got to finally see each other’;s dress for the first time! Many tears and laughs were shared.”

Their large number of guests in attendance really got to understand the love Toni and Liny share on a deeper level throughout their celebration, in part due to their personalized ceremony that was complete with a mini time capsule filled with letters to each other, advice cards from our guests and a bottle of wine to open on their five-year anniversary.

After the ceremony, guests entered the barrel room where greenery and ivory floral arrangements flourished alongside the romantic candlelight. It was the perfect space for the brides to have a sparkler grand entrance and share a first dance.

In addition to their three-tiered semi-naked wedding cake with gold detailing, they also had a table filled with Italian pastries that only added to the sweetness of the day.
