The most glorious and magical of days happened among the trees in idyllic Shingle Springs. Faye and Chris envisioned an intimate wedding with close friends and family that was relaxed, musical, and a bit boho!
The bride collected unique decor and tableware, and created smudging gifts for favors. Ceremony in the trees with hanging florals and a meditative singer was a highlight, as was the cutest photo booth bus we've ever seen! The cake hung from the rafters, appearing to float on its own. Beta fish swam in bowls during dinner. The most luscious, colorful florals exuded vibrance and love. And, the estate gifted the couple with a horse as a wedding gift!

A feast for the senses, our TWE team designed vibrant vignettes for Real Weddings Magazine, along with an incredibly talented team of vendors. The shoot was a nod to Indian traditions and themes, creating a modern-day "fusion wedding".
We enjoyed working with our "real" couple models, while playing with textures and color. Our spice blending bar offered a unique make-it/take-it idea in lieu of traditional wedding favors.

Pheasant Trek at Dunnigan Hills sits on 80 acres of olive trees and vineyards with pastures for grazing cattle and a pen for cute miniature donkeys! So there's plenty of room for 200 wedding guests to enjoy the pastoral setting and this working Yolo County ranch estate.
Owned by a charismatic wife-and-daughter team who owns a global cattle business, Pheasnt Trek became the site of a styled shoot coordinated by Tan Weddings & Events. When principal planner Jennifer Tan met with the owners, it sparked the excitement of showcasing this northern California ranch as a wedding venue.
Tan Weddings & Events assembled the areas top-notch creatives such as Nicole Sepulveda-Smith of XSiGHT, Strelitzia Floral Company, and Khacek Confections, among others. TWE and the team were guided by the venue's highlights such as two rustic barns, a vineyard, and an olive orchard. The authentic textures of a well-worn ranch provided the perfect backdrop for the rentals, decor, and florals. The team shared a vision, executing a design aesthetic that balances the venue's rustic materials with the exquisitely elegant colors and lines of the team's decor.
The venue provides may spaces for an event production of any size, tailored to the couple's vision. At Pheasant Trek, expect to have a grand celebration, and if you are lucky, pet a donkey!

Taylar and Cameron originally wanted to elope with a small group in the redwood grove in Davis. Upon seeing that the creek was under construction, the couple began chatting with our team about the idea of moving the event to Villa De Nardi, and before we knew it, we had a ceremony and reception planned within weeks for 40 people!
Villa De Nardi ended up being the perfect space for the guests, with the garden for the ceremony, and dinner under the lights on the main reception space. Gold flecked doughnuts, handcrafted place cards, vintage tableware, and lush florals made for gorgeous summer nuptials and some of the prettiest tablescapes we've ever seen!
A quick timeline for creating this exquisite day allowed the couple to be able to adventure together overseas as needed, wherever the groom's miltary station would take him. The amazing photographer moved the timeline to accommodate photos and dinner as the sun went down to combat the summer heat. Finishing off the evening with their first dance, the couple and their guests talked the night away, and then headed into Sacramento for an after party!
We wish this couple so much love and happiness as they continue on their adventurous paths together around the world.

Close friends and family travelled from Japan and the bay area to celebrate May and Aki's wedding in Sonoma. The couple wanted their guests to experience a true "California" wedding and fell in love instantly when they saw the rolling hills of vineyards at Gundlach-Bundschu.
The ceremony included a wine ritual where the bride and groom mix a red and a white wine together, signifying the blending of the two families. Toasts were shared in Japanese and English.
Aki works for a company who develops vegan alternative food products, and the couple wanted a clever way to incorporate these with the wedding. "Just" foods provided a variety of dips for the appetizers and vegan cookies. And, the couple valued high-quality food and wine for their guests! Fairmont Sonoma catering team worked hand-in-hand to provide an amazing, multi-course feast paired with Gundlach-Bundschu's wines, along with a custom menu featuring English on one side and Japanese on the other. As the guests headed through the wine cave at the end of the night, the couple handed out custom olive oil gifts and thanked each person personally.
About 3 months before Sarah and Gabe's wedding, they found out that their venue was sold to a new owner, and they had to find a new place to have their wedding! The Maples ended up the perfect spot for the couple and their guests. An amazing vendor team pulled together to create a dreamy day for the couple, which included their FAVORITE food -- tacos!
The ceremony included a wine letter box with a custom etched box, bottle of local Elevation Ten wine, and special, secret words of love written by the couple, to be opened years later on an anniversary of their choice. Soft florals, and a palette of pastels with accents of gold throughout, the bride designed her dream wedding. Everyone agreed that changing venues was meant to be, and it all came together beautifully!
