Kabri and Jora were married at Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue, N.Y. in front of 80 of their closest family and friends, traveling from over 14 states, on September 28. “The grounds gave us the connection we wanted to nature and the outdoors,” Kabri said. “There was a big tree that we could use as the centerpiece of our ceremony, and the open-air pavilion looked out onto the vineyard for the reception.” The color scheme incorporated red, oranges, and purples or “mountain sunset.” “We wanted to evoke the beauty of fall,” she said. As guests arrived, they were greeted with a chalkboard sign that quoted Robert Mondavi, “Wine to me is the passion, it’s friends and family, it’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.” The nuptials began shortly after they chose a seat not a side. To symbolize their unity, the two nail a bottle of wine and love letters inside a wooden box to be open on their fifth anniversary.”While the sun was setting over the vineyard, Jora and I rose and gave the first toast of the evening. . . we wanted to share our appreciation for their fervent desire to celebrate our marriage,” Kabri said. The newlyweds’ favorite part? The food! “The farm-to-table menu that we created with our caterer exhibited the season’s and region’s local and delicious produce. It was definitely the highlight,” she said.
