Jonathan Edwards Winery Wedding
If you live in Connecticut it’s a given that you have either heard of or have been to a spectacular Jonathan Edwards Winery Wedding! If you are planning a wedding at this winery you are going to love all of the inspiration from JC and Kendra’s big day!
JC grew up in Old Lyme, CT while Kendra was raised just a half hour away in a small town equally as beautiful, North Stonington, CT. They were married at the Jonathan Edwards Winery, just ten minutes from Kendra’s childhood home.
Kendra and her girls got ready in the Grand Tower at Foxwoods while JC and his Groomsmen arrived at Jon Edwards winery to get ready in their on-site bridal suite. Kendra chose her Jim Hjelm dress at Kleinfeld in NYC months before her wedding day, surrounded by all of her closest girls. The dress had beautiful lace details which made Kendra fall in love with it.
While getting ready, Kendra’s maid of honor gave her a box full of letters from her bridesmaids – sweet notes of encouragement and love for her day.
Kendra and JC met in the vines of Jon Edwards, accompanied only by the photographer to capture the sweet moment. The wind took away JC’s blindfold just perfectly to reveal his bride.
Instead of a guest book, the couple had their guests sign wine barrels, which they would later use as tables on their deck at home. Their reception details also include a cigar bar, window panes showing the seating arrangement designed with flowers from Mar Floral in Old Saybrook. Vivid Events Dj’d and put up the lighting. When asking Kendra and JC about their favorite wedding day details, they’ll make sure to include the Chicken & Waffle appetizers served during cocktail hour, made by A Thyme to Cook.
After dinner & some tearjerking toasts, the couple danced the night away with their closest friends and family.
