Peaceful Trentadue Winery in Geyserville

Just look at that view for this beautiful autumn wedding in the heart of the wine country.
It had lightly rained on the drive up through Santa Rosa, but once in Geyserville, not a drop.
The guests were treated to a serene outdoor ceremony.

The bride decided on a mixture of textures and colors. Black Magic and Circus roses blended nicely with callas and dahlias for that autumn feel.

The girls had a touch of purple added to give the bouquets an extra "pop" alongside their rich red dresses.

The ceremony aisle petals mimicked the swirl pattern that was on the table linens.

Close up of the poles on the Chuppah in beautiful, deep colors of the season.

The tables had 2 different centerpieces. Some were orange/ivory flowers and some were burgundy/ivory flowers.

The head table was dripping in candlelight.

OMG! Doesn't this cake from Jill Branch look delicious!
Special thanks to all the great vendors that added their special touches to this wedding.

Sleek and modern on the Silverado Trail

When I met Kim, I knew this wedding was going to be fun and bubbly just like she was. She had this beautiful color scheme of lavender and magenta with touches of lime green. Her bouquet was an elegant display of white/ivory, green and lavender and is one of the most requested bouquets from new clients.

The bridesmaids carried bouquets of hydrangea, roses, dahlias and orchids in the magenta/lavender and white color scheme.

Boutonnieres for the groom and bridal party.

The ceremony was held on the lawn right off of the patio at the sleek Solage Resort in Calistoga.

The centerpiece vases were wrapped in tropical ti leaves that matched the colors of the wedding.

The cake really popped with the bright colored orchids against the dark linens.

The bride left a wonderful review that can be seen here.

Thank you to Lisa and Ricardo from BV Weddings for their skills to make the day run so smoothly.

Congrats GIANTS!!!!!

Everyone who knows me, knows that I love to bake and that I have a huge sweet tooth! I look at the dessert menu before the dinner menu when I go out to a restaurant. I couldn't help myself, I had to bake cookies to celebrate the world series. They were so cute I hated to eat them...we'll not really...they were delish!

Surrounded by grapes at BR Cohn Winery

K and T were a fun and lively couple that chose fun and lively colors for their winery wedding!

The bridal bouquet turned out to be one of my favorites of the year. It even had a few accents of Bells of Ireland to reflect the Groom's Irish heritage.

The bridesmaids carried lush bouquets similar to the Bride with a little twine on the handle to give it a little country detail.

The couple's dog was part of the wedding entourage and rocked this floral collar. I can't wait to get a picture of that!

The Groom's boutonniere of course had "Bells of Ireland" along with a pod and dahlia.

Corsages were definitely as festive as the girls bouquets.

A sign on a dirt road directs guests into the vineyard for the ceremony at BR Cohn Winery. If you want to get married in the heart of the wine country, this is it literally...chairs are smack dab in the center of all the grapevines. You are surrounded by grapes!

Canning jars filled with flowers hung on the chairs.

Guest tables were a mix of round and long with burlap runners that had a mix of large and small mason jars with flowers.
I can't wait to see some of the professional images from this beautiful wedding. I will post them as soon as I receive them.

This beautiful wedding was at the impressive Orinda Country Club.
The bride chose soft colors of ivory, white, shades of pink and touches of green for her bouquet.

The bridesmaids carried rich orange, peach and green bouquets. They were wrapped in a burgundy wine color to match the color of their dresses.

Both colors came together in the decor for the room. The tables were made with both tall topiaries with submerged orchids and low lush centerpieces.

The Kings table for the bridal party had 2 tall arrangement on each side of the bride and groom with a low centerpiece in the center. Mixed color petals and orchid heads along with a ton of tea lights added to the romance of the table setting.

Low colorful guest table centerpiece.
This beautiful Chuppah is from Miracle Chuppah. They have a wide variety of styles and are very sweet and accommodating. They have a system of setting up that is quick and flawless, allowing me plenty of time to get the flowers on. I love it when vendors work well together!

The end result!

The wedding came together beautifully with the skills of Quintana Events. Alex and Debi once again coordinated a perfect wedding for a perfect couple.

Winter Blues

The color scheme for this winter wedding at the Brazilian Room was cobalt blue and gun metal gray with touches of sparkle and white feathers. It had a real 1920's vibe.

The bride Mary Joy found these "cute as a button" keepsake bouquets for her bridesmaids on Etsy.

This was the Bridal bouquet.

Side view of the girl's bouquets. They were placed in vases with cobalt blue marbles down the center of the head table.

Mary Joy was also the winner of a complimentary wish tree. Her manzanita branches had white orchids and feathers.

Clusters of triple vases with submerged flowers and blue glass were placed down the center of the head table along with the button bouquets.

The ceremony was inside by the fireplace. Large topiary trees were on pillars that flanked each side of the fireplace.

The round guest tables had mostly white flowers with touches of blue and 2 white ostrich feathers in each metal cube.

Clusters on the long head table.

Sign in table.
I will post the professional shots of this wedding soon. Please check back!
