Every so often, Morais Vineyards and Winery has the honor of participating in a styled photoshoot. We love these projects because they give us the opportunity to partner with other outstanding vendors in the industry and collectively create something beautiful that will captivate and inspire. Recently, the wildly talented photographer, Maureen Pacheco and the uber creative wedding planner and stylist Esma Krahn, asked us to be a part of an elegant, Latin, hacienda, styled wedding shoot.

This photo shoot wholly exemplified Morais’s inclination toward an exotic flare, from the depth and richness of the color palette to the exquisite details in design and fare.

The “bride” looked stunning in the sensational Angel Rivera gown from Soliloquy Bridal Couture, which was complemented by a whimsical cathedral length Spanish mantilla from The Mantilla Company. The bouquet and other florals were skillfully crafted by Laura, of Buttercups Floral Design. Parrot tulips, hellebores, mums, ivy, spray roses, and ranunculus were the essential elements she used to create the gorgeous arrangements.

Gold chivairi chairs, featured by the venue, played very nicely with the luxurious feel of the table settings. The gold chain lace anchored the delicate and sophisticated elements of the sweetheart table.

Hemibry Catering’s talented team created a scrumptious spread of theme appropriate bites. The ever so delicious empanadas were paired perfectly with their house special dipping sauce, which had just the right amounts of garlic and cilantro. “Great things come in small packages” and that is exactly what these Mini Churros were! Why is food cuter when it’s small? A welcomed sight and even more so, a welcomed bite were the perfectly executed bite sized flans. Topping it off, the “arroz con leche” cups were super easy to eat, not too sweet and with the perfect touch of spice.

What a great idea this little Latin American shot station was! The miniature tequila favors were brilliant! And who could say, “no,” to such an inviting display of fresh lemonade and red wine sangria?

This dessert station though! It, quite possibly, could make one feel they have stumbled into Willy Wonka’s very own wedding reception! We have never seen sweets look so pretty! These delicate sugary dainties were the artwork of the highly skilled team at Simply Elegant Delights. The impressive, three-tiered, organic wedding cake was adorned with exquisite lace applique on fondant with gold ribbon and finishing touches of real flowers. This masterpiece showcased the inspiration and artistry of the fabulously talented Lora, of Gateau Distinctive Cakes.
