Rustic Enchantment at Wente Vineyards

A romantic lavender affair at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, California. This beautiful couple chose to hold their wedding at Wente’s terrace lawn, which provides an open outdoor canvas, perfect to custom design your dream wedding! Our bride envisioned a tender and romantic wedding, with hints of rustic elegance. To start, we topped the rustic welcome sign with a 3 food garland with white and lavender blooms tucked in. For the bridal bouquet, we arranged a textured pairing of blush garden roses, true lavender and off white roses, with hints of English lavender. The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller version of bride’s, but with no lavender roses and added in lavender sprigs. The groom’s boutonierre was made using off white tea rose, succulent, and lavender sprig. The aisle of the ceremony was doused in delicate white rose petals. For the altar, we placed a 16 foot eucalyptus garland with white and lavender roses tucked in. We repurposed some of the centerpieces for the reception as barrel arrangements to brighten up the ceremony. These centerpieces were arranged in a rustic wood box, using creme roses and hydrangeas, adding in lavendar sprigs with lots of greenery. The sweetheart table was decorated using the same garland used for the altar, as well as some added in candles for a touch of romance. Lastly, we topped the wedding cake with dainty roses and succulents.

Rustic Romantic Murrieta's Well Wedding

Early fall is the best time of year for a California winery wedding, the weather is perfect and the grape vines are full of colorful leaves and this wedding at Murrieta's Well took full advantage of this magical time of year. Rich deep purples and wines mixed with soft romantic ivory and peach, the bride's bouquet was full of soft textures and bold colors, including wine dahlias, Juliette garden roses, peach berries, and white astilbe. Her bridesmaids wore deep purple dresses and carried bouquets matching the brides. The outdoor ceremony was rustic and chic with lanterns, golden pumpkin, and rose petals along the aisle. The altar was decorated with rounded arrangements on wine barrels and white drapery around the barn doors. The reception was stunning with rich purple linens by Napa Valley Linens and rustic wood box arrangements.

Edgy Romantic Cave Wedding

Wente Vineyards barrel room and caves in Livermore California is the perfect venue for this dark edgy romantic wedding. Lavenders, deep purples, dark greys and black made a stunning color pallet for this wedding. The bride carried a simple bouquet of dark lavender roses, black calla lilies and a dramatic pop of white stephanotis. Her bridesmaids wore dark pewter dresses and carried dark lavender and black calla lily bouquets. The groom and his groomsman had black calla lily boutonnieres.

The ceremony was held in the barrel room with purple lighting and ivory drapery and a crystal chandelier at the altar. Silver hanging jars with white roses and black scabiosa lined the aisle. The reception in the caves was romantic and elegant with black cross back chairs, silver linens, eggplant napkins, and centerpieces of cylinder vases with purple orchids and floating candles.
