It's All History When You Catch the Bouquet
From the Photographer...
Ginna and Sam met at college in physics class. It wasn't until a year later that they started hanging out. Their first date was on Valentine's day and the rest was history! Ginna and Sam attended a mutual friend's wedding. Ginna ended up catching the bouquet at the bouquet toss. For the entire night, she joked to Sam that this meant they were going to get engaged next.
The very next day, Sam took Ginna to a local park by the river. They sat in a chair swing. Sam played his guitar and after a half hour, Sam started to play a song that Ginna knew. The song was about a boy who took his girlfriend to the park and asked him to marry her. When Ginna looked over at Sam, he was already on one knee. He popped the question.
Instead of saying yes, Ginna replied, "You really want to be with me forever?" Sam replied, "Of course!"
The couple chose to get married at Villa Bellezza Winery in Pepin, WI because the winery is modeled after the Tuscan, Italy area. Sam and Ginna had previously taken a trip to Italy together and when they say Villa Bellezza, they knew it was the perfect place to say “I do!”Since Sam had proposed to Ginna while singing a song, it only seemed fit for him to serenade her at the wedding reception. He event got some of his friends to be his back-up!Another fun part about this wedding was that the couple loves wine and cheesecake! So instead of a traditional wedding cake, Sam and Ginna chose to have a variety of different flavored cheesecakes.
It was the perfect addition to a wedding at a winery!
