A fabulously chic setting, and a decadent four-course dinner for their family and friends. These were the top priorities for David and Anne, a couple from the Bay Area with a sophisticated aesthetic and tastes. Tan Weddings & Events, their planner, knew immediately the perfect pairing: Hamel Family Wines would host, and Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn would cater the event, both in Sonoma Valley.
A Wine Country Wedding
Hamel Family Wines cultivates a chic blend of modernity - a tasting room of steel, glass, and rammed earth, and traditional - a wine cave, oak barrels, and a biodynamic vineyard. Fairmont Sonoma proudly caters for large-scale events, prepared with locally-sourced ingredients and customized for the client’s discerning palate!
A Team of Luxury
To complete the guest experience, Tan Weddings & Events assembled a team of creatives including Theoni, Bright, and Le Bloomerie. The place settings and florals created a richly textured, sensual experience that supported the four-course meal of seared scallops, Dungeness crab and cauliflower soup, roasted beet salad, and entrees such as filet mignon with potato dauphinoise. Dessert followed, along with cake from Flour & Bloom, as Talia Koval painted a live canvas of the celebration.
Anne and David, seated at a u-shaped array of farm tables, flanked by their family and close friends, shared words of gratitude - for each other, for the blessings of togetherness, for an evening that was their dream come true.
