Real Wedding: Vanessa and Brian’s Millbrook Winery Wedding

Vanessa and Brian were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Fall in Millbrook, New York. The bride was beautiful in the Liane gown by Wtoo, and personalized her look with jewelry handmade by her Father. The day featured a romantic playlist tailored by the bride and groom themselves, and sweet little details crafted by the bride!

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

Because I always wear dresses I was going for something big.  I wanted a vintage feel and something different.  When I saw the Liane dress at Lovely Bride I knew right away that there wasn’t any other dress that topped this one.  I put the flower sash from Lovely on the back of the dress draping down.

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

COLOR, LOTS OF COLOR!! I wanted A LOT of everything.  There needed to be tons of burlap, lace, and jars that my mother-in-law and I made the vases out of. Brian and I spent months planning the music for the wedding. I am beyond obsessed with Bruce Springsteen and we worked out the most beautiful playlist for every moment of the wedding. It was like a movie soundtrack and the DJ was in love with us because he is a Bruce fan too! I tried inviting Bruce but I don’t know if he ever got the invitation!

What was the most memorable moment?

Walking to the ceremony and seeing Brian waiting for me was so memorable. Also when my mother-in-law and the caterer came into the bridal suite saying that the wedding cake never came!  Then 5 minutes later it showed up, we found out it fell on the way in and it was a MESS!! But it did the trick! Nothing upset us that day.




If you could give future brides any advice what would it be?

The advice I would give to future brides is that everything you go through to get to the wedding day is worth it. When the wedding day arrives take it all as it comes and remember it’s an organic thing that will take on a life of its own, your job is to roll with it and enjoy it! And Dance!
