Wine and Romance

A perfect summer evening in the wine country. The celebration took place at the beautiful castle like setting of V. Sattui winery. The sweet scent of Casablanca and pink Oriental lilies wafted through the caves of the barrel room. Candlelight flickered softly throughout the venue and the bride looked stunning.

The bride requested a traditional cascade bouquet of lilies, orchids and roses with an accent of blush pink.

The bridesmaids carried hand tied bouquets in pink with accents of white.

The boutonnieres and corsages were made with roses and dendrobium orchids.

Both mothers stepped away from tradition and took a more modern route with small nosegays to carry. This is a great alternative to pinning flowers on some of the more delicate dress fabrics.

The aisle was lined with rose petals in ivory, pink and hot pink.

Small rose bowls with bear grass decorated the place card table and the cocktail tables surrounding the beautiful fountain in the upper courtyard. The team at Quintana Events put the finishing touches on the place card table. Everything runs smoothly with the expertise of Alex and Debbie, one of my favorite Event Companies to work with.

The table centerpieces were in glass urns with clear and colored pink stones at the bottom and were filled with large open pink lilies. They really popped on the black linens at the reception.

Don't you just love the sweetheart tables at V. Sattui. That half circle shape is great.

Judy from True Confections Cakes made this beautiful 3 tier cake. She was spot on with the pattern. The cake blends in perfectly with the table linen.
