A Modern White-Washed Vineyard Wedding

November 29, 2018

So many delicate details surrounded Leah and Jack as they tied the knot at their vineyard wedding! We love her look–a minimalist slip style with just a touch of floral appliqué makes the perfect simple + statement combo.  These two opted to keep their palette simple with creams, whites and greenery, which helped to showcase the breathtaking creekside grounds of Mark Cascia Vineyard. Mix & match bridesmaid dresses, a big beautiful sailcloth tent, and a long farm-style head table kept this wedding looking polished, yet still so personal!

From J. Starr’s Flower BarnLeah and Jack’s love story starts in Montauk, where they first met. Jack was staying with some of Leah’s childhood friends when she joined them for a weekend. As fate would have it, Leah ignored him the first night, but the second night there were sparks and they became inseparable. Four years later, the pair was driving through Provence when Jack asked me to pulled the car over so they could take a photo. “I should have known he was about to propose, because it’s not like him to do that, but I was completely surprised when he dropped down on one knee.”

One year later they got married at a Mark Cascia Vineyard–just across the creek from Leah’s parent’s house. That morning while the girls were getting ready, Jack and his groomsmen enjoyed a boat ride on the creek from Leah’s Dad. A sailcloth tent was pitched next to the water at the vineyard to create a scenic reception space. Flowers became the focal point of Leah’s decor with a variety of centerpieces, a large floral arch, and lavender details. Two white washed farm tables became the head table, where each place card was adorned with a lavender sprig. Leah’s first favorite part of her big day was the waterfront ceremony, where her sister-in-law married them under a stunning floral arch. Her other favorite part was listening to the thoughtful speeches given on Friday and Saturday night from close friends and family. “My two best friends own a speech writing company called Speech Tank, so they made sure everyone nailed it.” And her other favorite part was when her four insanely talented friends sang their first dance. “Surprisingly, that was the only time I cried.” DJ Impulse kept the dance floor packed all night, and the party going until the very last song. One word of advice from Leah to all brides to be: “I highly recommend a disco-ball. No one will remember the plates, what chairs you picked or what the table numbers looked like—but oh the magic of a disco ball!”
