We loved Emily and Alanna so much from the start of our first Zoom meeting together! The couple chose to have a summer wedding at Silverado Resort in Napa. They loved the beautiful spaces, excellent food, and nearby accommodations on site for their out-of-town guests. The day turned out perfect!
A Beautiful Jewish Wedding Ceremony
Emily and Alanna requested a beautiful chuppah installation for their ceremony and provided three family cloth tallits to be hung from the top. The brides were surrounded by gorgeous flowers and garlands, and they looked so beautiful together. It was an amazing and intimate ceremony. At the rehearsal, the Rabbi also had the brides sign the Ketubah with their daughters holding a tallit above them as we all sang. This was a really special moment that we were happy to be a part of.
Summer Wedding at Silverado Resort
We used some lesser-known spaces at the venue. Cocktail hour and dancing were in the brick-laden arbor courtyard, the ceremony was at the vineyard, and dinner was on the mansion lawn. We selected modern lounge furniture to encircle the dance floor and lit up the space with beautiful overhead lighting from Bright and uplights from DJ Matt Brys of Extreme Productions.
A gorgeous cake from Flour & Bloom was featured on the raised outdoor stage behind the brides. Local flowers and garlands from Flourish adorned bannisters and her lanterns glowed as the night progressed. Silverado Resort created an exquisite dessert bar on top of a delicious dinner. The brides danced non-stop and said at the end of the night that whether we knew it or not, we are now friends forever!
It was such a joy to meet Emily and Alanna and work with them on their summer wedding at Silverado Resort. Their vendors really came together to create a wonderful experience. We always work so hard to bring our couples’ visions to life. We would love to work with you on your big day. Just let us know how we can help!

Hailey and Patrick decided to elope at one of the most beautiful venues in California – Beaulieu Garden. The couple opted for a timeless, classic look, which matched the venue perfectly. We always love working at Beaulieu Gardens! Paula Le Duc's team always does a stellar job with this gorgeous venue, including the most inventive food options. It was lovely to see Hailey and Patrick’s Beaulieu Garden elopement come together so well.
Beaulieu Garden Elopement
Beaulieu Garden is a private estate and one of the oldest wineries in Napa Valley. Built in the 1890’s, this estate has some of the best views in the valley. The architecture has a European influence, inspired by the founders’ French roots. Just the entrance, with its beautiful gate and 146 mature sycamores, is gorgeous. There are a variety of outdoor spaces at Beaulieu Garden. Over twelve acres have been turned into incredible gardens, which set the backdrop for Hailey and Patrick’s elopement!
The couple exchanged handwritten vows in the Sunken Garden. This gorgeous space is inspired by an Italian courtyard and has a fountain. The lush greenery created both a beautiful background for their ceremony and a beautiful background for their photos. Their photos were beautiful. We always love working with Elizabeth Warrick Photography. She captures details and "real moments" with elegance and grace. Hailey looked lovely in her crepe mermaid gown. Her white rose and ranunculus bridal bouquet was held together with a dusty blue ribbon, and it matched the style perfectly.
We’re so glad that we got to work with Hailey and Patrick on their Beaulieu Garden elopement. All of their vendors came together to create such a wonderful day for them. We love working with other amazing vendors to bring our couple’s vision to life. It would be great to hear from you and learn your love story. How can we help you create that amazing wedding day?

Maggie and Adam have been together for many years, and their families are friends. Their spring wedding in Woodland was a fairytale wedding. They had so many cute details, and we just loved pulling their vision together.
Spring Wedding in Woodland
Maggie and Adam got married on a private estate owned by a close friend. This gorgeous estate includes a beautiful Tudor-styled house, a bridge, rose garden, and yes, a sweet pig barn! The owners graciously house the local 4-H students’ pigs – so cute! So, this couple got to get married surrounded by magnificent fields, and it was so lovely after the sun went down.
Local Wedding Flowers
The couple wanted local flowers, and Hannah of Full Belly Farm was the perfect fit. She grows almost all of the flowers that she uses for her weddings! For this colorful wedding, she chose flowers in shades of bright pink, blush, and mauve. The gorgeous peonies were the showcase in her bridal bouquet! These gorgeous flowers really pulled everything together, especially the beautiful arch for the wedding ceremony.
Fun Wedding Day Details
This couple really paid attention to the details. For instance, Maggie wanted custom paperie that really expressed her vision for her spring wedding in Woodland. So, she had paperie made with custom wax seals and handmade letter-pressed paper. She designed it along with us, her mom, and Valley Press Co.
Maggie and Adam also had custom cookies for favors. These included handmade flower-seeded paper, which is such a cute detail! All the Things by Kami did an amazing job with them.
Not to mention, one of our favorite aspects of the wedding was the elegant mobile bar. It is actually a refurbished horse trailer. The mobile bar was such a fun idea, and it fit right in with their elegant backyard wedding.
This magical blush wedding came out amazing. It’s always wonderful to get to know new couples and learn all about their love story. We want to bring your vision to life and help create the special day you’ve been dreaming of. Reach out to us and let us know what we can do for you!

Shradha and Ivan wanted to honor Shradha’s Indian heritage and Ivan’s Mexican heritage in their celebration, and we loved working with them to make this vision a reality! The couple was conscientious about their family and friends, who they knew wanted a safe, fun outdoor celebration as event restrictions began to relax. They decided to keep the guest count lower than they originally planned and focus on a meaningful ceremony with Indian rituals, stunning florals, and custom desserts for their guests. Their intimate wedding at The Maples in Woodland was an amazing day!
A Gorgeous Venue
The Maples in Woodland is a gorgeous estate that is perfect for weddings. The classic 1930’s ranch house has been fully renovated and has a bridal suite, groom’s suite, and a full commercial kitchen. The land is perfectly maintained and sits on 55 acres. Couples can choose from a few different options for their ceremony, so they can really customize their event!
Intimate Wedding at The Maples in Woodland
Their ceremony took place on their main lawn with a beautiful Chinese pistache tree as their backdrop. Bright orange, peach, and burgundy flowers were hung from the arch, and the colorful fabric added the perfect accent. The aisle featured pink and red flowers in a swirled pattern. The ceremony featured traditional Indian events, including the Var Agaman, which is when the groom is introduced, and Varmala, the flower ceremony.
After the ceremony, the couple walked around the grounds with their photographer, Hailey Ayson, to take beautiful sunset portraits. The light really captured the beautiful gold sparkle in Shradha's lehenga. They then had dinner at home with the immediate family.
Due to travel restrictions, most of Ivan’s family could not come from Mexico, and the couple is planning a second celebration there next year! We’re so happy they’ll get to have that celebration with Ivan’s family, and we’re grateful that we got to work with them here on their intimate wedding at The Maples in Woodland. We always work closely with our clients, so we can bring their vision to life. We’d love to hear from you!

Cindy and John are such a sweet couple! We love how much they care about and appreciate each other. John loves that Cindy is never too tired to tackle new challenges, and he is always inspired by her grit and how much she cares for him. Meanwhile, Cindy loves that John challenges her to try new hobbies, pushes her to be her best, and is always so considerate. Their wedding at Monte Verde Inn turned out so beautiful, with so many personal touches.
Getting Ready for Their Wedding
Cindy wore two gowns. The first was a stunning ball gown by Monique Lhuillier. It had a lace bodice with beading and tiers of tulle with a horsehair trim for volume. Her horsehair trim veil completed her perfect wedding day look! Cindy's bouquet was a work of art too! It featured lush peonies, roses, ranunculus, and a touch of blue with Delphinium.
The couple chose to do a first look, which is something we love! It really lets the couples have some time alone before the wedding day starts. Your wedding goes by so fast, and this really lets you two have a minute together! After their first look, they read each other a letter and personal vows, which was such a sweet moment for them.
Romantic Wedding at Monte Verde Inn
They chose Monte Verde Inn, which is a beautiful boutique estate in Foresthill. Couples get the complete venue for themselves, and guests can really walk around and enjoy the beautiful grounds. The couple's goals were to have a gorgeous woodsy-garden setting where their families and friends could mingle and enjoy time together. Our team developed their design based on the couple's palette and elegant style, which included custom paperie and signage.
Flowers were a large focus of the design, and the couple wanted the venue to feel like guests stepped into a private garden. When designing, we made sure to create floral focal points throughout the day. The ceremony was a main feature, and the arch was draped in fabric and lush flowers. Large displays were placed on wine barrels and moved to the reception after the ceremony. At the reception, the focal point was the sweetheart table. It featured a greenery garland and a large center piece.
John and Cindy picked a spring color palette of soft blue and blush, which was beautiful for their spring wedding. The blue was tied in throughout the wedding, from her bridesmaid in a dusty blue gown, to her bouquet, to the reception flowers and paper.
We loved working with John and Cindy on their Monte Verde Inn wedding, and their design turned out to be gorgeous. We really take the time to get to know our couples and create a design for them based on their preferences. We’d love to help you make your wedding dreams a reality. Reach out to us, so we can start planning!

Caitlin is originally from Australia, and Christian is from Virginia. Their wedding had been postponed, so they eventually decided on an elopement at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, which is an incredible venue. Their families from Australia and Virginia were able to be a part of the celebration via livestream, including leading toasts for the couple! Their elopement turned out to be so elegant, and it was great that they were still able to include their families! It was a day of gorgeous details and love.
Elopement at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn
First, the couple had their portraits taken at a nearby winery that really showed off the natural beauty of Sonoma! There is so much natural beauty here in Sonoma. Caitlin wore a classic mermaid bridal gown by Lazaro, which featured an organza ruffle skirt and sheer Chantilly lace bodice. It was traditional with a fun twist, and she looked amazing!
It rained unexpectedly that day, but then it cleared up right before the ceremony. Caitlin and Christina shared a first dance immediately following the ceremony to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song” on harp. It was so romantic! After that was the sabrage, or sabering, where the sparkling wine was opened using a special saber. It was such a fun moment!
Special Wedding Package
For Caitlin and Christian’s wedding, they chose one of our elopement packages that we have with Fairmont, which couples love. It makes the planning process much easier! We provide the planning, officiant, harp, florals, and the cake! We do it all, and make sure everything is executed flawlessly. This special package includes up to ten guests, but it also includes the option to come back in the first half of 2022 and get money off the reception site. This is such a great option for couples who want to have an amazing elopement now and celebrate their marriage with all of their loved ones later!
Working with Caitlin and Christian on their elopement at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn was such a joy. We loved working with them and helping them with those beautiful details. We would love to help you have the same wonderful experience that Caitlin and Christian had. Reach out to us today and learn how we can bring your vision for your wedding to life!

Soriya and Kelli are from Texas along with all of their guests. They envisioned a destination wedding in Sonoma, and they ended up changing their date twice and then their venue due to the pandemic. Ultimately, they had a Spring Park Winters wedding, and this gorgeous venue ended up being the perfect spot for their celebration!
Spring Park Winters Wedding
Before they walked down the aisle, this couple had a special moment together helping each other with their shoes. It was a sweet time during which they could just be alone together and have a moment of calm before the wedding. They both had two different shoes – heels for the ceremony and rainbow sneakers for the reception! Combine this with their incredible outfits made by Halston, and you have a couple with the coolest wedding day style!
Soriya and Kelli had their ceremony on the steps of the Inn with beautiful flower arrangements going all the way up the steps. They chose a bright and colorful palette, perfect for Spring! Their flowers included hot pink peonies, wildflowers, roses, and lots of draping greenery. Everything came together beautifully for their ceremony. Their children were a particularly important part of the ceremony, and it was so sweet.
Intimate Outdoor Reception
The reception was on the grounds of Park Winters, and guests sat at round wooden tables with whitewash chairs from Theoni. Throughout the reception, intimate seating areas allowed guests to mingle and connect with each other. Soriya and Kelli chose fun, modern rentals mixed with a few vintage pieces, and it came out amazing.
They had so many great details as well, and they really committed to the wedding they wanted. The Bob Schneider Band flew in from Austin. Their cake had rainbow layers inside to celebrate Pride. Instead of a typical sit-down dinner, they had food stations along with signature cocktails at the bar. In lieu of gifts, Soriya and Kelli had QR codes featured at the welcome table and at the bar that encouraged guests to donate to the couple’s favorite charities. Though Park Winters was not their original venue, the event could not have been more perfect in this truly gorgeous setting!
This couple had such an incredible vision for their Spring Park Winters wedding, so we made sure to source only the best rentals that would fit their design! This included three rental companies and two linen companies that combined to get that perfect look. As your wedding planner, we strive to make sure your vision comes to life. We would love to hear from you, so we can achieve for you what we did for Soriya and Kelli.

A wedding day at Park Winters is unlike any other wedding experience. Magical grounds, caring staff, delightful food, and so much more. Wedding guests have the best experience, and couples are always happy after a day at Park Winters!
We were thrilled when we met Victoria and her sweet mother and learned about their wedding vision. They valued hiring local vendors who know the venue well. Fresh from the farm florals, elegantly-detailed cake, and a goddess hair piece all came together to create a modern, joyful, chic energy for their family and friends. Every details was truly lovely, and full of love, all at once.
Victoria and Wes met at UC Davis and loved coming back to Yolo County for their wedding day. Because their group was smaller, they were not sure if people would dance. Well -- dance, they did (and then some)!
Congratulations to this amazing couple. It was such a pleasure to bring their Park Winters dream day to life.

Looking for a magical mountain wedding venue? Look no further than Highlands Ranch Resort in Mill Creek near magnificent Mt. Lassen in Northern California. Delicious food, expansive views, chic cabins, terrific weather, pristine pine-scented air, and close to a plethora of adventurous opportunities for guests, the venue has it all.
Our team partnered with the incredible Real Weddings Magazine and a talented group of vendors to create the ultimate styled shoot. Paperie details and signage included woodsy notions. The florals were created from the ground up, inspired by the local wildflowers in the meadows. Vintage + modern rentals added a chic vibe to the affair. Even the desserts included a nod to the local flora and fauna.
Our models are a real couple who recently got married themselves! They had a blast trying on different attire, jewelry, accessories, hair & makeup. Some of us stayed the night and explored the incredible area, from swimming at Lake Almanor, to hiking around the Lassen National Park.
For many reasons, this venue is by far one of our favorites! We can't wait to visit again, whether just to stop by for a fabulous meal, or to plan another event.

The Maples in Woodland is one of most favorite venues. The expansive lawn, exquisite Chinese Pistach ceremony tree, historic house, cute stable, lush courtyard, and pretty grounds makes it the perfect venue for any type of special event. And -- the very best bridal suite around!
Eddie and Miranda + the sweetest little baby (ever!) were the most chill, happy couple. They loved muted tones and wanted the venue's natural beauty to speak for itself. A taco bar was in order, and the guests loved every moment of dinner.
If we could describe a very, very happy, blissful wedding day, we would describe Eddie & Miranda's day. As you scroll through the photos, you will see the most connected couple with understated elegance and sheer joy!
