Wedding Day Wine in Every Day Decor

I may have mentioned that Pete and I (but definitely moreso I) are big wine drinkers - specifically reds - but like humans, animals, and anything featured in the J. Crew Holiday Catalog... I don't discriminate.

After tossing around a few Wedding Guest Book ideas, a favorite local winery Va La Vineyards, made its way into our wedding.   Now, Va La deserves their own post and I promise one day soon I'll get around to posting it.  In the mean time, I'll share how we went from a Wedding Decor 'staple' of a guest book made from our favorite vintages to cute fall decor idea.

Our "Guest Book" consisted of five unopened wine bottles of our favorite vintages to be celebrated with on our 1st through 5th Anniversaries.

Getting graffiti'd at the reception...

Post wedding, they've made their home in our Crate and Barrel Reflection Centerpiece surrounded by our collection of wine corks(started circa 2007) and some left over candles from the wedding

I won't be keeping the bottles here for much longer, one because we will be decorating the ledge for the holidays, and two, I don't want to celebrate with corked wine in 5 years.  In the meantime, it has been a great reminder of our wedding day and all the people we were able to share it with.
