Sophisticated Intimacy at Wente Vineyards

Wente Vineyards is one of the best wedding venues, from the caves, to the lawn, or inside the winery, there are endless opportunities for wedding design! For our brides bouquet, we arranged a formal romantic pairing of sahara roses, gardenias, lisi, brovardia, and fressia. The grooms boutonniere was a single white tea rose with hints of ruscus. At the beginning of the aisle inside the cave, we placed two large barrel arrangements of blush and cream florals with hints of greenery. For the pews, we placed floating candles inside of cylinder vases. Candle light is the key to romance! We placed bud vases with off white roses at each of the cocktail tables. At the reception, we arranged low lush centerpieces that sat in an elegant gold footed dish. These were arranged using the same bridal blooms as the other arrangements.

Wente Cave Wedding

This lovely winter wedding was full of soft romantic candlelight, dripping greenery, deep burgundy, and shimmering holiday lights. It was a perfect winter ceremony inside the Wente Vineyard Caves with large barrel arrangements, cylinder vases with floating candles and white rose petals surrounding the altar. The beautiful bride carried a hand-tied bouquet with dripping greenery, Marsala roses, garden roses, burgundy peonies and scabiosa, and touches of blue thistle. Her Maid of Honor looked amazing in a shimmering champagne gown, as did here bridesmaids in deep Marsala dresses all carrying a bouquet matching the brides. The reception inside the Cresta Blanca Room was perfectly decorated with sparkling linens by Pleasanton Rentals, holiday lights, and centerpieces dripping with greenery and white and burgundy flowers.
