Amber + Brett: A Chic California Barn Wedding by Weston Neuschafer Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

A grand vineyard wedding in the California sunset for just under 50 guests—sounds like an unforgettable and intimate way to kick off a lifetime of love, don’t you think? Amber and Brett selected Thacher Winery as the site of their September nuptials, and, with the help of Korinna Peterson of Le Festin Events, planned a spectacular country-chic affair from their Brooklyn apartment. Thanks to Weston Neuschafer Photography for sharing his dreamy images of the day with us—we love, love, love the way everything seems to softly glow from within.

Amber and Brett first became friends as middle school teachers in Austin, Texas. Life eventually drew Brett back to the East Coast, and the pair drifted in and out of separate relationships and circumstances until a chance reunion at a Teach for America summit in Washington, DC. During a visit to NYC soon after, Brett told Amber that she was the girl he wanted to share his future with. The rest, as they say, is history—the pair has been living together in Brooklyn ever since!

Though it may look lavish, the couple’s barn reception was only for 48 guests. “We spent the better part of four years in flux before finally maturing into who we needed to become in order to actually be together,” says the bride. “Given this, we sought to create an experience that was designed to celebrate the people who had loved and guided us to this point.” The couple treated their special guests to a lemonade stand, live folk band, a dinner menu filled with delicious comfort food, and other reminders of their time spent in Texas.

The most thoughtful touch of the evening: each place setting at the gorgeously dressed table held a personalized note from the couple explaining why the guest seated there was so important to them. Talk about showing your appreciation!

After the reception, the wedding party continued the fun at a nearby dance hall. Thanks again to Weston Neuschafer for sharing his beautiful photos of the day—we’re officially ready to drop everything and head West!
