Rustic and Elegant New York Wedding at Red Maple Vineyard • Sara Wight Photography

You know it's going to be an incredible year when we start it with a wedding like this! Jocelyn + Jonathan's fall wedding at one of New York's most picturesque venues, Red Maple Vineyard, is the perfect blend of rustic elegance. The natural backdrop of the vineyard and a muted color palette, paired with more formal dresses and modern decor choices made this wedding one to remember. We are in love with Jocelyn's dress and the mismatched bridesmaid dresses, but the sheer joy on their faces as they leave the ceremony is hands-down the best part of the day. A big thank you to Sara Wight Photography for sharing this stunning day with us!
