Kerry & Szabolcs’ Funky Elegant Vineyard Barrel Room Wedding
I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! As you already know, Poptastic Bride is all about couples who choose to get married in their own special way not to be unconventional but because it’s a reflection of who they really are.
Today’s bride & groom Kerry and Szabolcs dined, wined and danced at their vineyard wedding among elegant wine barrels and romantic chandeliers and tea lights and had themselves a grand old time! Let’s have a look at their celebration courtesy of the photographic talents of the awesome Melinda Le‘.
Here’s Melinda to give us the lowdown on this happy and sparkly red, white, and and black event:
Kerry and Szabolcs are such a fun couple with funky style, ready to PARTY and have a good time on their special day. They were awesome to work with and their wedding was GORGEOUS! They wed in the very romantic Wine Barrel Room at the Palm Event Center amongst a host of family and friends. Though the threat of rain loomed over our heads, we managed to get some GORGEOUS photos of them! (I just love the afternoon lighting that you only get in Autumn.)
The beautiful couple is here to tell us more about themselves and their wedding too:
Szabolcs a.k.a Will was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary and moved to the Bay Area when he was 9. Kerry was born in San Francisco but she was raised in the suburbs of San Mateo. Both of us are huge fans of quality food and wine. Since Kerry works for Virgin America Airlines, travel has become a huge part of our lives.
The common theme which makes our relationship successful is that while we have responsible careers, we are kids at heart and don’t act our age.
As you can see in the photos, the fun element is present even in what they asked their bridal party to wear:
We chose red baseball socks with the pant legs rolled up and PF Flyer shoes for the groomsmen. The bridesmaids meanwhile had four different red high heel shoes to complement this look.
The first look.
More from Kerry & Szabolcs:
Since religion in not part of our lives, we wanted to have a party feel to our wedding instead of that stereotypical formal atmosphere. The color concept was black and white with accents of the darker reds. We were inspired by the vintage look of the 20′s and 30′s and incorporated paisley designs though out our wedding.
We love to be wined and dined so the Palm Event Center in the Vineyard was the perfect venue due to its amazing food and Mitchell Katz wine pairings. To further incorporate the party feel, Kerry choreographed a small two minute shuffle dance routine with the entire wedding party to LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem.
A huge thank you to Melinda for sending me her gorgeous images of this wonderful wedding! Congratulations and thank you to Kerry and Szabolcs for allowing us a peek into your special day!
