"May Your Life Be Like Fine Wine"
What makes a new wine wonderful? According to the father of the bride, it is the inner taste of the grape in addition to its outer beauty. It is the time and obstacles overcome while ripening on the vine that makes this flavor shine. Lastly, it is the mixture of the grapes that creates a new flavor entirely, one that is even better than the way the wine would have tasted if each grapes had been the sole flavor. Combined, they are stunning.
And, so it is with Samantha and Brennan. Having spent years of dreaming of their future, these two have embraced the deepest joys of love and the daily beauty of life. We are truly inspired by their love---by their obvious affection for their siblings, they way they have honored the examples of love and generosity set by their parents, their good natured sense of play with their nieces and nephews, and even how the details they chose for their wedding day were a reflection of their love for each other and for their family. They were so grateful and humble that they even made sure to praise their dedicated wedding planner, Gina Whittington, from the bandstage.
Samantha and Brennan, you truly are "loving hearts that care deeply for family and friends."

It's hard to believe that there would be a better way for two wine aficionados to celebrate their wedding than by sharing some of their favorite things with their favorite people. Samantha & Brennan savored their wedding by transporting the elegance and intimacy of Napa to the comforts of the Texas Hill Country--with a lakeside ceremony that took place on an acrylic stage positioned just over the bride's parents' home's infinity pool, and a reception in a glass-walled cathedral at Barton Creek Resort. Both locations offered stunning views of the lake and the hills, with all the intimacy of a private celebration.
Guests were served delicious lemonade and cocktails as they arrived at the home of the bride's family for the ceremony. In addition to these refreshments, guests were able to sample different wines from custom wine flights at the wedding reception. They were provided with a card where they could jot notes about each wine and make their decision as to which wine they'd like to drink most throughout the evening.
Samantha and Brennan,
Thank you so much for allowing us to create your wedding video. We hope that the words spoken by your dearest family and friends always remind you of the joy that brought you to this very moment to make these vows. Thank you for inspiring us with your love and devotion!
Love, The Mason Jar Team
