Lindsey & Cole's Fall Wedding | Upper Shirley Vineyard

As we all struggle through this crushing heat wave, I wanted to think back to cooler times, like this absolutely classic late fall wedding. 

Lindsey and Cole’s Upper Shirley Vineyard wedding brought family and friends in from all over the country (and beyond perhaps). 

 The cool weather, river and setting were the perfect backdrop to this classically modern couple.  The heartfelt toasts and speeches given for each of this couple (from so many in attendance) truly demonstrated how loved and admired they are. 

I met with Lindsey and Cole (and Lindsey’s mother) several times over the preceding year and was always struck by how much of a teamthey were. They were both quiet and a little reserved – and I struggle with that a bit to be honest (a fear that I talk too damn much, go figure). But I soon realized it was the simple fact that they were trusting me with their wedding. This is always true of course, but they were both united in the process, in the whirlwind of planning and vendors that surround any wedding.

I found their trust endearing (as always), and I thoroughly enjoyed working with both them and their families. As ever, the new Upper Shirley Vineyard venue is a stunning gem of a location. 

Thanks to everyone below for making this a fabulous wedding!
