Nicole & Skyler's Rehearsal Dinner at JOLO Winery & Vineyards


The story of Nicole and Skyler can best be described as a Carolina country boy who fell in love with a darling Southern belle.  We knew the wedding weekend for these two could only be the perfect blend of their different, but amazing personalities- oh what fun it was to plan and design!   Enjoy a glimpse of this stunning rehearsal dinner set against the breathtaking outdoor backdrop of Pilot Mountain, captured by Amanda & Brent for Millie Holloman Photography

During cocktail hour, guests sipped on wine made from the vines surrounding the party and teased their taste buds with house-made crisp bacon and blue cheese figs wrapped with ham. The groom had very few requests for the wedding weekend, but utilizing his family’s antique apple press was one of them! We surprised the groom with an apple press station serving cider moonshine cocktails and fresh apple escort cards directing guests to their place under the stars for dinner.

Aromas of fresh made paella wafted through the air as the guests entered the tent in the middle of the vineyard. When the sun began to set, stories were shared of blush-worthy college adventures and heart-warming testaments of love only siblings could truly understand. After dinner, guests danced under the night sky to a bluegrass band from Nashville and snacked on truffle popcorn and sweet potato fries.  Guests left the party with moonshine jelly in hand and the promise of a celebration filled with love and adventure the next day.
