Leslie and Marco: A Vineyard Dream

Leslie and Marco celebrated their marriage on July 22, 2017 at the gorgeous Folino Estate Winery and Vineyard, in Kutztown, Pa. From the décor, to the venue, to the little details… it was the perfect combination of rustic and elegant. Truly, it was straight out of a dream. The wonderful newlyweds were kind enough to share some of their personal thoughts about their big day. Maybe you’ll find some nuggets of wisdom as well! Thank you for letting us continue to celebrate you, Leslie and Marco!
