On a gorgeous day in September, Lucy and Nick celebrated their love before family and friends at Mount Ida Farm & Vineyard. The couple made it their own by weaving in beautiful personal and local touches, including naming their signature cocktail after their golden retriever, Finn, and adding Carpe Donuts into their guests’ welcome bags. We hope you enjoy seeing a few of the touching moments from Lucy and Nick’s special day below!
