Casalé Di Terra - Waiheke Island

This past weekend I took a little trip over the Waiheke Island to have a look at this spectacular venue.  I am excited to say that I will be photographing here this coming wedding season.  I had no idea that it would be as amazing as it is.  Around every corner, there was something new and exciting to discover.  When I first arrived, the smells filling the beautiful open air courtyard felt just like home.  I managed to catch the owners in the middle of cooking up a delicious Thanksgiving Feast!  This isn't something that you come to expect living in NZ, but these folks are from my neck of the woods, hailing from Greenwich Connecticut. The architecture of this unbelievably stunning venue is something that you would more likely see along the hillside vineyards of Italy. There is something so welcoming and home-like to this place.  It just oozes togetherness, family, friends, and warmth. Needless to say, I'm unbelievably THRILLED to be shooting here this January.  Below are just a few snippets from my little location scout.  Be sure to visit CasalĂ© Di Terra if you are looking for a unique, elegant, and exclusive venue experience. xo-k
