Glamourous Beauty at Casa Real Winery

Casa Real in Pleasanton, California has an abundance of rustic elegant beauty throughout the entire winery. A perfect venue if you are looking for modern romance. Our beautiful bride’s bouquet was a loosley tied pairing of blush and peach garden roses, off white tea roses, with pops of burgundy ranunculas. The bridesmaids bouquet were smaller version of the bride’s bouquet using all the same flowers. The groom’s boutonniere was an off white tea rose, blush astilbe, with a dash of ruscus and eucalyptus. When you entered the ceremony, the first thing you see are the gorgeous arrangements sitting on elegant ivory pedestals. These were arranged using blush garden roses, white tea roses, burgundy ranunculas, with pops of lavender hydrengeas. Sitting on the first, middle, and last pews, we created floral arrangements in hanging mason jars. At the reception, you immediately notice the two arrangements that sat on the guestbook table. These arrangements had a more modern and clean look, using mostly white florals with few pops of burgundy. The large centerpieces sitting on gold stands were the same arrangements used on the ivory pedestals at the ceremony. Other tables had smaller centerpieces using the same bridal blooms and lots of greenery, which sat in a champagne cylinder dish. At the head table, we placed a 31 foot long eucalyptus garland with tucked in white and burgundy roses. All of the bridal bouquets were also placed at the head table for every one to admire.

Modern Romance at Nella Terra Cellars

Another breathtaking wedding held at Nella Terra Cellars in Sunol, California. This venue is perfect because you have the option to have your wedding indoors, outdoors, or half indoors half outdoors! Our stunning bride envisioned a warm, romantic wedding, while still being simple and tasteful. For the bride, we arranged a formal clean and controlled bouquet using peonies, calla lilies, garden roses, and hydrangeas. These flowers were mostly white, with added pops of blush. The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller version of the bride’s bouquets, adding in touches of phlox. The groom’ boutonniere was a dainty off-white tea rose with hints of rucus and eucalyptus. At the head table, we arranged four large arrangements that sat on tall glass cylinders. These were created using a combination of off-whites, blush and dusty lavender flowers with hints dark green, adding a more garden feeling. The round tables had a combination of different centerpieces. Some had small bud vases of blush and off-white roses, surrounded by romantic floating candles. Other tables had small low lush arrangements using the same florals used in the large head table arrangements. Lastly, we topped the homemade wedding cake with lavender, blush, and off-white roses and hints of greenery.
