Dusty and Matt were married on a beautiful Fall day at Cardella Winery, a wonderful new wedding venue located near Mendota. It’s easy to understand why they chose this location for their wedding. Cardella Winery truly captures the feeling of Old-World Italy. The wedding day started in Fresno, where all of the morning preparations began and then moved to the winery in the afternoon for photos and a sunny afternoon ceremony. We loved the personal touches of the ceremony, including Dusty being walked down the aisle by her son and the couple including communion in their ceremony, which was officiated by Dusty’s brother. The reception setup was gorgeous and included custom centerpieces of pomegranates, gourds and grapes as well as an antique farm flatbed trailer used as a dessert bar and photo presentation area. The dessert bar included the couple’s favorite desserts, pies, cupcakes and cookies and guests had a hard time choosing between the options. The reception started with funny toasts (and Matt’s famous dance)
followed by a fun evening full of dinner and dancing under the dramatic skies. Congratulations to Dusty and Matt!
