Not Quite A New Year’s Kiss
I am so excited to tell you all about Mr. & Mr.’s Tre Posti wedding day! It is a wine-lovers dream wedding, but first, Mr. & Mr.’s story!
So, without further ado, let’s go back to a simpler time. Think New Year’s Eve 2011. President Obama was still in office and repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Instagram was just starting, and Kathryn Bigalow had won Best Director for “Hurt Locker” and still stands as the only female to win in this category, but I digress. Anyway, it was good times!
Mr.& Mr. met on New Year’s Eve at a party at a mutual friends house. Like most adorable couples, these two have different accounts of how their first interaction went down.
Mr. recalls seeing a rather handsome man across the room, but only knowing a few people there and wanting to get this mystery man’s attention, he threw a biscuit with his left hand, despite being right-handed. The biscuit curved and hit another man. This unintentional target came walking over to Mr. and asked why he threw the biscuit at him. Mr. then had to come up with a clever story to hide the fact that the biscuit wasn’t actually meant for him.
That’s one version. The other Mr. says the story went more like, “My friends left the party early, leaving me not knowing anyone at the party. So, I went into the kitchen looking for the hosts and that is where I met Mr., who I would later find out was immediately smitten with me, so thus the biscuit story was born.”
Regardless, they both agreed upon this conclusion: “We conversed for a bit and realized we both lived in Mt. Washington, PA. Shortly thereafter Mr. (biscuit victim) left the party right after the stroke of midnight (before turning into a pumpkin) without exchanging numbers to follow-up with each other.”
As fate would have it, these two met again two months later in which Mr. got Mr.’s number and from there they shared a very good bottle of wine. Their relationship aged like a fine wine until it was ready to drink on their wedding day!
An Emotional Tre Posti Wedding Day
Flash forward to Mr. & Mr.’s Tre Posti wedding day in 2018!
The theme of the wedding was “relaxed elegance” which they defined as, no jeans, but no neckties either. Everyone looked so good!
The ceremony was everything you would hope for in a winery wedding. Beautiful weather that had the, “I Do’s” right during Golden Hour so the photos are epic! Heartfelt speeches that had both groom’s tearing up in a happy way, and guests getting caught up in the love these two shared. There was lot’s of laughter between tears because these two have a special balance of love.
Their wedding coordinator, Christine Friedland went above and beyond to make sure this was the perfect wedding for these two.
She made sure that no detail was spared from the wine bottle centerpieces to the magnum wine guestbook, to their ceremony in front of the grapes.
The reception was full of dancing, which included a large circle dance to “That’s Amore,” a crowd-pleasing rendition of “Sweet Caroline” by cousin James, and the piece pièce de résistance, of Mr. having an epic dance routine to Beyonce’s, “Love On Top.” The night carried on with lot’s of dancing thanks to Tony Sparks, and luckily, no biscuits being thrown.
Congrats Mr. & Mr.! I wish you many more shared bottles of wine and dances in the years ahead of you!
