This time last year we were up at Spring Ranch in Mendocino celebrating a very sweet couple at their spring wedding. Their florals were done by Lily and Mint. This sweet arrangement was perfect... I'm a sucker for lilac. Thanks The Edges Wed for the photo.

Well, it took longer than I thought to publish my 3rd post but what better day to post it than the 1 year anniversary of this wonderful couple. I present to you Part 3 of our 3 part Napa Valley vineyard estate wedding. You can see part 1 here and part 2 here. I saved the best for last because the dinner and dance party we planned for this happy couple was really to die for... Isabel Lawrence and Kristen Loken captured every gorgeous moment of this poolside al fresco dinner. Due to privacy request from the client we are sharing details only.
This is one of those details that is so incredibly complex in craftsmanship, the photos (however beautiful) truly can't capture their artistry. The artwork and calligraphy by Cynthia Warren was drawn specifically for the occasion, menu custom letterpressed by Tiny Pine Press and finished off with a silk ribbon and their monogram embossed on velvet .
