Ascension Wine Estate Wedding, Matakana | Sam and David
I had an awesome time at Ascension Wine Estate in Matakana with Sam and David. I think it's fair to say that these two basically giggled and laughed their way through the whole day - at times I had to tell them off for smiling so much! With David being Jewish, I also got to learn a lot about Jewish wedding culture, such as raising the huppah (a cloth canopy above the couple at the ceremony), breaking the glass and saying "mazel tov!" and the hora (the chair dance at the end). Sam also planned the day to give generous amounts of time for photos, which was just wonderful. It meant we were lucky enough to enjoy several beautiful locations in the Matakana area, including Scott's Landing, as well as a magical sunset.
Congratulations Sam and David on a truly gorgeous day!
