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.

Rich Colors and Rustic Charm

The rustic altar covered in greens and flowers was particularly stunning, flanked by too wine barrels with beautiful tall rounded arrangements filled with blueberry roses, burgundy dahlias, and blush spray roses.
