Evanelle Vineyards is the perfect location to have your wedding any time of the year. Located in Madera California surrounded by agriculture and local vineyards, it has everything you need for your picture-perfect wedding.
Mandy + Stephen met through friends without realizing they both worked for the same organization. Their love blossomed and quickly they were planning their classic black and white minimalist wedding at Evanelle Vineyards. Their celebration of love was a joy start to finish, which is really a testament to how organized Mandy was in planning this affair. Her wedding binder was top-notch and truly made this wedding day a breeze!

Most importantly, switching from your heels to comfy shoes before the reception.
After family portraits, wedding portraits and wedding party portraits, Mandy + Steven made their grand entrance into the reception and were greeted with over 200 of their friends and family celebrating alongside them. Their loved ones really know how to shower them with love and support, it was palpable.
Each table was adorned with white linens, floating votive candles, white florals and a black linen napkin. I adored how elegant and timeless their decor was. I especially loved their neon sign with their new last name highlighted, After their first dances with each other and their parents, we cut the cake and celebrated their fur baby Phanie who got a special place on their wedding cake. They also chose to do dog treat wedding favors as a nod to Phanie, it was the perfect wedding favor!
Everyone had a blast on the dance floor with Good Times Entertainment as DJs, the whole night was filled with classic rock, hip hop and a mix of country. A little bit of everything for everyone. They twirled and swayed to the sounds of their favorite artists, surrounded by their closest friends and family
The Reception Dress!! LOVE
As the night came to an end, guests gathered outside for a magical sparkler exit, Mandy + Stephen ran through a pathway of twinkling lights, cheered on by their loved ones, and made their way to their getaway car. It was a beautiful and magical ending to a truly unforgettable day.
The Evanelle Vineyard Venue in Madera, California was the perfect setting for this black and white minimalist wedding, offering a mix of vintage elegance and natural beauty. From the stunning ceremony site to the beautiful reception, every detail was thoughtfully planned and executed to create a sophisticated and fun celebration. Mandy + Stephen will cherish the memories of this special day for years to come.
