Our season ended last year at a Private Estate in Napa Valley with one of the most stunning evenings that I have had the pleasure to produce. It's sometimes hard to convey how truly magnificent some of these events are in person - in this case the evening was exponentially more fabulous than gorgeous pictures can convey and my amazing team of both vendors and staff handled every moment with such grace and professionalism that the end result was about as close to perfection as can be achieved. Definitely a proud moment for me. Sillapere designed the florals and decor, Tasha DeSerio Catering brought a 5 star restaurant to life in the middle of an estate courtyard. and so many other talented people contributed their amazing work Got Light, Synchronicity Strings, DJ Lela Rose, Sherrie Long Artists and Heidi De Tailor and Classic Party Rentals just to name a few...
This wonderful couple is very private and would like us to only share images that protect that, so we have only shared just the event details below. We had three fabulous photographers onsite. The couple's photos were captured by the amazing Isabel Lawrence Photographers, event details were captured for Rosemary Events by Kristen Loken and some of the lighting images were taken by Irja Elisa Photography. Thanks to all of them for the amazing images. Here is the ceremony which in my opinion was the epitome of effortless beauty.
The bride wanted a classic bouquet entirely of garden roses. The fragrance was incredible!
Guests were greeted with a refreshing Cucumber Mint water station.
Seating was provided in the form of dreamy pews and upholstered chairs with lush vine accents.
Tiny Pine Press crafted the sweetest petite wedding programs which were presented at the guest book table. The lush velvet guest book was embossed with the couple's monogram. Actually, the papers on this event were RIDICULOUS. Cynthia Warren illustrations, Tiny Pine Press handcrafted and letterpressed everything.... hand selected vintage stamps, custom silk ribbon, velvet seals also embossed with the couples monogram. Honestly... they deserve their own post.
Our bride looked absolutely stunning in a Vera Wang gown and was escorted by both of her parents.
