Classic Elegance At The Palm Event Center

This classic elegant wedding at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton California was soft, romantic and formal in white, gold, navy, and blush.  The Ceremony was held in the intimate Estate Room, the lovely bride walked down the aisle in a stunning Hayley Paige dress with her romantic hand tied bridal bouquet with roses, calla lilies, hydrangeas, and fragrant gardenias. Her bridesmaids in formal gold sequin dresses carried matching bouquets, and the groom and groomsmen wore blush tea rose boutonnieres. The bride and groom were framed by tall ceremony arrangements and the aisle was decorated with white rose petals and floating candles in cylinder vases.

Whites, blush pinks and navy blue adorned the reception,  the soft blush linens on the guest tables and the sequin navy linen on the sweetheart and cake tables from Napa Valley Linens look stunning. The high and low table centerpieces had white hydrangea, blush roses, tea roses, white stock, and larkspur.

Danielle and Micheal's wedding was classic elegance with soft romantic colors of lilac, blush pink and white. Danielle's timeless bouquet with roses, peonies, stephanotis and gardenias was simply perfect with her crystal beaded gown. Her lovely bridesmaids wore soft lilac dresses and carried rounded bouquets of white with accents of blush pink garden roses. Micheal and his groomsmen kept it traditional with black tuxedos and wore ivory tea rose boutonnieres.

The ceremony was held in the tented courtyard under the crystal chandelier. the ceremony space was elegantly decorated with ivory pedestals in different heights holding large hourglass vases with rounded floral arrangements in whites, ivory and blush pinks. The aisle was adorned with a scroll pattern of white and blush rose petals along both sides with hanging jars floral arrangements on every other chair. The reception held in the ballroom was truly a fun party, yet elegant and sophisticated. Both low footed dish and tall hourglass arrangements around the room, with whites and blush pinks.

Fall in Love!

Fall is here! In Pleasanton, California this couple created a romantic fall wedding using bohemian chic as their inspiration. Our beautiful bride carried a loose hand-tied bouquet that matched her bridal party. The bouquets were filled with mocha roses, peach garden roses, blue thistle, blue viburnum berries, bronze cymbidium orchids, burgundy dahlias, and red anemones. To give the bouquets some additional texture there were olive branches and eucalyptus spilling out the sides. The groom wore a bronze cymbidium orchid boutonniere, while his groomsmen wore orange spray roses and blue berry boutonnieres.

Guests entered through the large winery doors at lovely Casa Real at Ruby Hill and walked though a beautiful entry room. There was a table in the center with a guestbook and pen for guests to leave some love for the couple and was romantically decorated using a tall glass vase with tall upright flowers such as tall plum, blue thistle, roses, dahlias, and seasonal fall greens. Surrounding the arrangement sat candles filling the table.

As the bride started her walk down the aisle, her soon to be husband stood at the altar. He stood in front of a fireplace decorated with two pedestals resting on top of the pedestals were two footed-dish arrangements that matched the loose fall colors the couple selected. In front of the pedestals were six large floating candles in cylinder vases.

The newlywed couple then moved to the wedding reception where tables were set with champagne linens from Napa Valley Linens. Each table had a low centerpiece arranged in a mercury footed-dish. The arrangement includes matching flowers to the bride’s bouquet plus a few pheasant feathers to create an asymmetrical look. At the front of the room, the married couple sat at a sweetheart table decorated with bridal vases and more candles.
