Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville NY was a unique and rustic location for Meghan and Andrew’s Wedding. If you’ve never been to Brotherhood Winery, I highly recommend it. It has been in business for 180 years, making it America’s oldest winery, and if you can take a tour of the wine cellar, it’s worth it.

Meghan and Andrew’s wedding day was a much awaited chapter in their love story. They each prepared for the day with a calmness and certainty that this was to be one of the best days of their lives. When they saw one another at their First Look, their relief was obvious. They enjoyed every moment they had together.

They honored their deep connection and long relationship in one of the most heartfelt ceremonies I’ve seen. There were speeches and readings, and they took turns reading their very full vows. There were even two people dear to them who acted out the scene from, “When Harry Met Sally”, which if you didn’t know better, it would seem as though Nora Ephron had them in mind as inspiration when she wrote it. That’s how unique their ceremony was.

The reception was exciting and the decor was colorful. Everyone had the same zest for a good time that Meghan and Andrew had. The music by The Silver Arrow Band kept the crowd on its feet from the minute they started playing. Delicious wine was served with the equally delicious food. It was an amazing time had by all, and best of all, Meghan and Andrew could start their married lives together.
