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.

Ritzy at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco

There couldn't be a more magnificent place to say I do than The Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, a sophisticated urban retreat, with a romantic courtyard ceremony site and stylish indoor ballroom for the reception, there's no doubt that it's a perfect place for a city wedding.

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. The sweetheart table was overflowing with orchids spilling over the front, silver candelabras and tea lights.
