Kristy and Oncu | Villa Bellezza Winery Wedding

You would never have guessed that Kristy and Oncu’s wedding was planned in under six months. They found the perfect venue in Villa Bellezza in Pepin, Wisconsin. Josie from Sixpence Events helped Kristy finalize the details of the day in quick order.

The sunny day began with getting ready and Kristy and Oncu’s first look. Guests gathered under the pavilion for their heartfelt ceremony, which included a unique wine ceremony to celebrate the sweet and dry seasons ahead. After the ceremony, Kristy and Oncu practiced their first dance with their dance instructor (p.s. Oncu is a professional ballroom dancer…) before the reception festivities kicked off.

Just before speeches began, we took Kristy and Oncu outside to catch the last few minutes before the sun sank over the horizon. I absolutely love these sunset portraits. Enjoy some (many) highlights of this beautiful wedding day. Congrats again to this lovely couple!
