~ Summer Gervasi Wedding ~
Jerry and Elsie’s summer Gervasi wedding occurred in the beautiful setting of Tuscan-inspired villas and vineyards. To begin the day, Elsie and Jerry had an intimate first look at the lake, shaded by graceful willows. Elsie’s gown was adorned with delicate lace and flowing layers and perfectly complemented by a cathedral-length lace mantilla. Her bridesmaids wore dresses in shades of violet and lavender, adding a touch of whimsy to the ensemble. Elsie chose the skilled hands of Anjuli Lochan to create her flowers. Each flower was meticulously handcrafted with intricate details and vibrant colors, rivaling the beauty of any fresh bouquet.
After the first look, the wedding ceremony occurred on the Veranda outside the Villa Grande. A draped canopy with trailing greenery framed the couple as they exchanged their heartfelt vows. Jerry and Elsie’s wedding not only celebrated their love but also marked the joining of their families. They chose to incorporate a blended family unity sand ceremony during their ceremony. The ceremony represented their children coming together and creating a new, unified family. Each family member chose a different color of sand, representing their unique identity, and poured it into a single vase. The result was beautifully blended colors, creating a lasting reminder of their love and unity.

Afterward, a Tuscan-inspired reception occurred in the elegant Bellaria Sophia ballroom at Gervasi Vineyard. Lavender-hued linens adorned the tables, while centerpieces featured open-frame designs. Each centerpiece was embellished with gold vines and a mix of delicate blooms. Place settings included rosemary-infused olive oil wedding favors, a thoughtful touch for each guest. Jerry and Elsie’s sweetheart table was adorned with a lush garland of greenery and violet blooms, creating a romantic focal point.
During the reception, Jerry and Elsie stole away for a romantic portrait session on the vineyard grounds. This was followed by a touching first dance where the couple chose to include their family in the special moment. The sweetness of the evening was highlighted by a trio of violet-themed wedding cakes adorned with delicate flowers in shades of lavender and violet. Laughter and love filled the air as Jerry and Elsie celebrated their union with their family and friends.
Jerry and Elsie’s wedding was a true testament to the power of love and the beauty of unity. The enchanting atmosphere, the heartfelt ceremonies, and the thoughtfully crafted details all came together to create a magical beginning to their journey together.
