Kim & Matt planned their destination wedding in Niagara, where they got engaged. They wanted their friends and family to fall in love with the region like they had, and welcomed guests from across the US - and the globe - with a cocktail reception at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery, following their Friday evening wedding rehearsal.
Ravine Vineyard being one of their favourite stops in Niagara-on-the-lake, it was the perfect venue to greet everyone and mingle, and kick off the festivities of the weekend.
As their wedding planner, planning and designing the welcome reception as well brought an extra chance to stretch my design muscles. In this case, I designed a casually-elegant welcome reception with a bit of a rustic touch. It had a different feel and more colour than their elegant wedding taking place the next day at Chateau Des Charmes.
