Tara and Scott exchanged vows and celebrated their wedding day at Oak Summit Vineyard in Millbrook, NY. Surrounded by the beautiful vines that will become pinot noir and chardonnay, these two had a fun, relaxed day with their loved ones. “Seeing couples (some that have been married for 30+ years) walking hand-in-hand around the vineyard, was one of my favorite moments that day,” says Tara. They chose calming blue accents for their attire and décor with a few rustic details, but didn’t want to go overboard on a theme of any sort. “We wanted everyone to just have a good time. It was really important to us to have amazing food and something for everyone. I also wanted a few moments of drama, which is where the taxi cab arrival and the fireworks came in,” she says. From the looks of these gorgeous photos by Martina Micko they had an unforgettable time filled with lovely details from local vendors. Congrats Tara and Scott!
From the Bride…
How Did You Meet?
Scott and I are actually from the same small town of Catskill, NY. We went to High School together and our families still live 7 miles apart. We knew of each other, but didn’t hang out in the same circle. 10 years after HS, I had moved to NYC from my stint in California and was throwing a holiday party. Our mutual friend called and said “Hey, you know who’s back in town, Scott Templeton, is it okay if he comes to your party?” I said of course, not really remembering him but being nervous because I wasn’t that cute in HS and was now 25 with a full mouth of adult metal braces, so not cute still! I went to meet them at a bar before the party and I remember opening the door seeing him and he turned around and smiled and he had braces too. We’ve been inseparable ever since that night. That was 8 years ago : )
How Did You Find Your Venue?
We actually found it through a caterer’s website that we didn’t end up going with. The vineyard only does 3 weddings a year and doesn’t really do any advertising. Some might call it fate ; )
What Was Your Planning Process Like?
I loved planning this wedding. I had a hand in every detail, so it was amazing to see it all come together. I love looking at my pictures and reliving every moment. The greatest part has been hearing our friends say how much fun they had and what a beautiful wedding it was. We couldn’t have asked for anything else.
