We had a GREAT time at our Open House this weekend, thank you to EVERYONE who came out to see us! It’s always wonderful to see our booked brides again as you continue to work on the details of your wedding as well as meet so many new brides!
As usual, our package vendors: Gold Star Catering, Lesley’s Creative Cakes, DJ Joel Gibbs & DJ Ramzy Saba represented the Windmill well and showed everyone why they are some of the best in the business! We also love having our preferred vendors share the day with us: Brushfire Photography, Charity Maurer Photography, Sarah’s Wedding Garden and Simply Beautiful Weddings & Events.
In case you missed January’s Open House, have no fear – we have another one next month! Click here to see details and RSVP for our February 10 Open House.
It’s a new year and with it comes fresh ideas! One of the biggest trends coming into the 2013 wedding season is DIY & Going Green!
Everyone is more conscious of the environment and brides are no exception. We’re always looking for ways to recycle, reuse and re-purpose items. Why not turn coffee filters into cute rosettes to hang over a candy table? Or use old frames to display seating assignments?
Pinterest is great for DIY projects and can provide lots creative inspiration for repurposing old items. The best tip is to have FUN with it! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Weddings and Holidays are two of the best reasons to be surrounded by family, friends and loved ones.. why not combine the two by having your Wedding around the holidays?!
These beautiful centerpieces and Christmas inspired decor definitely gets us in the Holiday mood. The tall floral arrangements accented with ornaments looked so GORGEOUS in the Big Barn!
One of the hottest new trends for 2013 is the Roaring 20′s! Think garden setting, vintage pieces mixed with touches of glam, neutral tones with pops of bright color, fun and fringe. The inspiration for this trend are shows like Downton Abbey and the upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby! Our property is filled with treasures from the past. Our Wedding Receptions are held in a restored 100 year old Barn surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. The fountains create a serene and inviting setting for guests while they stroll through the courtyard before the ceremony. Our brides arrive by a Beautiful White Carriage pulled by stunning and meticulously groomed horses. Add some lawn games for some fun and maybe a signature drink for some flare!

Rustic Chic Wedding at the Wine Barn: Jordan & Adam Peplinski – Married on Sep 14 2012
The Wine Barn is the perfect venue for an intimate outdoor wedding. The ceremony is held under a Twisted Tree in our sunken garden with views of the lake in the background. Guests then move to our open air pavilion for the reception where you can enjoy dinner under the stars!
Jordan and Adam Peplinski chose this site to celebrate their wedding with 80 of their closest friends and family. There were two adorable flower girls wearing tutus, jean jackets, little cowboy boots and carrying a sign that said “Uncle Adam, here comes your girl” that nearly stole the show!
But as soon as Jordan stepped out of the Bridal Cottage and made her way down the aisle, you could almost hear the collective sigh as each guest took in her stunning beauty. As Adam accepted Jordan’s hand from her father, you could feel the tremendous amount of love in that small unspoken exchange. During their vows as the sun began to set, the twinkle lights on the Twisted Tree and the hanging chandeliers added a romantic feel to an already lovely moment.
Jordan’s grandmother provided many of the antique pieces that were used for the centerpieces. Kathleen, Jordan’s mother, painstakingly wrapped, packed and transported all of the decor from California and beautifully arranged all of the table scapes. The vintage pieces mixed with vases of fresh flowers brought in by Sarah’s Garden and photos of Jordan and Adam created such a uniquely personal feel to every table. Guests dined on filet mignon expertly prepared by Gold Star Catering, danced to music provided by DJ Ramzy Saba all while Brushfire Photography captured memories throughout the entire evening.
We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding to showcase the true beauty and intimate nature of the Twisted Tree and Wine Barn venue here at The Windmill. Our Love and Best Wishes to Jordan and Adam for a long and happy life ahead!
