Aria Prospect Wedding | Barbara + Emanuele

Bride and Groom at Gouveia Vineyards in Wallingford

We were right all along, Italians definitely know how to party and organize an amazing wedding. Beautiful ceremony, pictures at Gouveia Vineyards, which is just magical in September, and an awesome party at Aria in Prospect. We couldn’t be happier to be a part of it all and thank you for letting us photograph and document your incredible wedding day. You are a truly special coupe and your wedding is definitely one for the books!

We also wanted to thank all the vendors that helped make this day as amazing as it was: Makeup: Erin Infantino from Simply Gorgeous by Erin, Video: David Long from Epic Filmmakers, DJ: Todd Powers from Jock In The Box Entertainment, Cake: Chimirris Italian Pastry Shoppe, and everyone at Aria Wedding & Banquet Facility by Villa Rosa.

You don’t see many invitations that look this good. This set is really one of the best we’ve ever seen but guess what, our bride is a kick ass graphic designer so no wonder she has the best wedding invitations ever =D.
