"One of our favorite touches was the bride's touching tribute to her father who passed several years ago, he was a firefighter and she had his helmet in the front row! She also had their adorable dog, Dozer, in the wedding!" - Olivia, Vellano Estate by Wedgewood Weddings

McKenzie and Joe had a seamless wedding planning process, thanks to our expert team at Vellano Estate. See what they had to say about their experience: 

"We would describe our wedding-planning experience with Vellano Estate by Wedgewood Weddings to be the best decision of this whole process. Brook, our coordinator, really went above and beyond to help us focus on the purpose of the day while she handled all other details. We really could not have asked for a better experience. She even snapped the first picture of us after we were pronounced husband and wife! She really made it so personable and special."

McKenzie and Joe were inspired by the natural beauty of Vellano Estate to create a less is more aesthetic for their wedding. From delicate floral designs to elegant gold finishes, the decor was classic and romantic, yet understated. McKenzie and her breathtaking gown were the stars of the show, and the carefully chose decor complemented her personal style. 

"Vellano Estate inspired my look of a natural and outdoor look. I loved the simple and elegant fairy tale vibe. I wanted everything to be a “less is more” kind of thing. When I choose my dress, that was really the center stage of all other decision-making."
