Gina & Nick | Folino Estate Vineyard
June 6, 2018
Gina dreamed about a winter vineyard wedding her entire life. It was exceptionally special to join her and Nick at Folino Estate Vineyard to witness that dream come to life.
Winter weddings are quite rare. I’m sure the worry of a blizzard or rough travel conditions steers most people away from having them. Not Gina and Nick. This is what Gina dreamed of; a snowy vineyard wedding. And you know what? She got exactly that and it was magical.
When Ashley and I watched the weather for this particular day, we were nervous. We always suggest going outdoors for portraits; rain, snow, or shine. However, on this particular day, it was set to be -6 degrees. It was bitterly cold with extreme wind. Gina and Nick, however, did not let this stop them. Not only did we capture their love in front of their GORGEOUS sweetheart table backdrop but we went outdoors for sunset portraits. We’re so glad they did. It all made for an honestly documented winter wedding experience.
Folino Estate Vineyard is set in Kutztown, PA. With a beautiful stone building and gorgeous rows of empty vines, the winter romance surrounding Gina and Nick matched why we were there. The greenery and florals brought in by A Cottage Gardener were everything and more. I cannot imagine what the space would’ve looked like without it. Gina’s entire dream came true with perfectly curated vendors and a bit of luck from a snow-loving mother nature.
These two are such a combination of kindness and style. It has been lovely getting to know them, from their engagement session to their wedding and beyond. We loved everything about celebrating this union.
Cheers to Gina & Nick!
