Outdoor Sacramento Wedding

The bride chose a light and fresh color palette of green and ivory for her outdoor wedding under a big, beautiful willow tree.
The cute couple sharing a moment on the porch swing before the big party!

Love this shot! 

 The tables were decorated with different size mason jars with green orchids and white tulips, topped with floating candles.
Various size mason jars were placed around the place card table.
Pretty arch that decorated the ceremony site next to the river. It was a surprise for the bride to take home and decorate their garden.

 Close up of the pretty green carnations and roses. Carnations have come a long way. The colors are endless, they smell wonderful and they last well in heat or out of water.

Sheppard hooks held silver pails with berries, roses and tulips. These lined the rose petal aisle way.
*Best memory from this wedding: Eating cheeseburgers from the "Squeeze In" before the ceremony with the groom and D.J.Sonny.
So appreciative of this wonderful review from the couple on yelp.
As you can see from all of the other Yelp reviewers...Lisa is amazing. With short notice and an extremely tight budget Lisa worked wonders for our wedding!

I can't say it any better than those who've already posted. Lisa is creative with look & feel as well as with budget...she gets to know you and what you're working with and she makes the magic happen. She's dependable, proactive, honest, and just an overall pleasure to work with...I didn't even meet her until the day of my wedding, everything was done through email - that's how much we trusted her and that's how helpful and understanding she was of our time as well.
I never had the wedding "dreams", never had a desire to plan one and really had no idea what I was doing planning a wedding in three months! I didn't think I'd have one flower there to be honest. At the end of the day, I was so happy we came across Lisa, so happy with the choices we made together, and so happy with outcome. What a difference it makes in the ambiance...and we didn't even have to go broke or go crazy to get it!

It's a Nice day for a White Wedding.

Jennifer and Conrad have impeccable taste. They wanted a crisp and clean look with all whites, ivory and cream colors with just a touch of blush in some of the pieces.
 The mix of garden roses and hydrangea made beautiful, full and fluffy bouquets. The bridesmaids wore black dresses, so their bouquets had a little blush added to them.
 The barrel room at Jacuzzi Family Vineyard in beautiful Sonoma was the perfect romantic setting. The round dome area is where the ceremony took place among candlelight and olive trees.
Large urn centerpieces opened the way to the ceremony seating. These were later moved and used
at the reception.
 The large wrought iron candelabras look like they belong in a castle. They are very majestic and were stunning when decorated with draping orchids and roses.
The boutonnieres were backed with olive branches and surrounded with green hypericum berries.
 The Flower Girl carried a cute white and green kissing ball.

The chairs had white bouquets of mixed flowers with accents of ornamental grasses.
The olive trees that lined the back wall of the ceremony had white and green centerpiece in the pots.
After the ceremony these centerpieces were put around the archways in the stone courtyard.
This grand entrance leads out to the courtyard. It is such a gorgeous place for the couple to have photos taken.
 Tall olive trees separated the ceremony from the dining area in the barrel room.
Different size mason jars with grasses, berries and various white flowers decorated the tables in threes. The jars were all different sizes and were surrounded with votive candles.
 Peonies were out of season, so large, fluffy football mums were used.
Each napkin was adorned with an olive branch. Look how cute the olives are on this branch!
Park Ave. Catering provided these menu cards for each napkin.
 Triple mason jar centerpieces gave a touch of rustic to this stylish wine country wedding.
A big Thank You to Quintana Events for planning and coordinating this beautiful wedding!
