This past weekend, TDF and I had the pleasure to attend the wedding of a longtime friend of TDF’s, in the beautiful Niagara Wine Country. The wedding took place at a serene Estate, surrounded by cornfield’s, grapevines and wild flowers.
This is the first time I have attended a wedding at a Vineyard Estate, and I have to say I was totally in love with everything about this wedding. The scene was so perfect. It was a a small, intimate wedding. The ceremony and reception took place on opposite sides of the same property. Once we were done witnessing the short and sweet “I-Do’s”, the guests were free to mosey over to this rustic open air barn, to the open bar, and enjoy the delicious appetizers being served around by the staff. After we enjoyed an outdoor buffet dinner, we spent the rest of the evening tearing up the dance floor…until they served us all late night stone-fired pizza, from the outdoor pizza oven…we departed, some very contented guests.
This may be my very favourite dress of all time. I’ve worn it to a couple of events before, (including a bridal shower last summer, and tooling around Las Vegas with flats), I just love the cut and length, the width of the straps, and the tapered affect of the matching belt. I wish I had ten of this exact dress in different colours and patterns. This dress honestly has legs for days, the amount I am able to incorporate it into my wardrobe. It also seems to work for just about any occasion, depending on how I choose to accessorize.
Speaking of accessories, I had chosen another pair of heels for this event, a pair of super-high stiletto’s. Lord was I happy to have brought these wedges as my ‘back-up’ option. There was a lot of traipsing across expansive lawns, and of course through the outskirts of cornfields (to get these shots). Wedges are a vineyard-wedding must.
I would also like to point out that Cheap Thrills + Haute Chic has undergone a name change. Welcome to the new blog, The Amber Edit
