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.
