Outdoor Garden Wedding at The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge | Stephanie & Ruben


Stephanie & Ruben were married under giant oak trees, were serenaded by a mariachi band, danced with their favorite people, and had the time of their lives. ✨

Having a FUN wedding was one of their main goals! They were even engaged for a whole year longer than planned (thanks Covid), because it was really important to celebrate with all their favorite people. They wanted to dance the night away, and that’s exactly what they did!

Music was a big part of the day. Their wedding had THREE amazing ensembles – a string quartet at the ceremony, mariachi for the cocktail hour, and a latin band for the reception. I have to give a special shoutout to Mariachi Amor for joining their bride & groom photos at the vineyard for a bit so that Stephanie & Ruben could enjoy the cocktail hour music too.

Stephanie’s vision for the day also featured beautiful garden themed decor. The floral installation at their ceremony site was stunning.

Their ceremony was entirely in Spanish, and though I couldn’t understand everything (I took German in school 🤷🏼‍♀️), I could feel the heartfelt moments throughout the ceremony.

After photographing Ruben’s proposal way back in 2019, I’m so happy to see them as husband & wife. I loved everything about this wedding.

Congratulations, Stephanie & Ruben!!
