Our inspiration for Kaitlin and Jason’s big day centered around modern elegance with pops of gold and luscious greens. The original design plan included images of cream flowers with eucalyptus, long farm tables with beautiful green garlands, a modern mirrored welcome sign, and gold dinner flatware. Kaitlin expressed that she loved the look of wooden tables and floral table runners for the reception and we could not wait to bring all of these elements to life for their big day.
On a beautiful summer day in Sonoma wine country, Kaitlin and Jason said their “I do’s” in front of Chalk Hill Estate’s iconic overlook as beautiful hills and sweeping views framed the couple perfectly. A modern arch covered in greenery and crisp white florals by Julie Stevens Designs achieved the combination of modern and elegance in the most perfect way.
For the reception, guests were instructed to find their seats via escort cards that were tucked into wine keys. The wine keys also doubled as wedding favors for their guests as each of them were custom engraved with the date of the wedding. A perfect wine country wedding favor, if you ask us! Long farm tables were set up on the lawn at the ridge, under a “zig- zag” market light display, just as Kaitlin had envisioned. Long leafy runners ran down the length of the farm tables and sophisticated place settings of gold-rimmed china and gold flatware.
After dinner and speeches, guests were shuttled down to the Pavilion for a night of dancing with Dick Bright Orchestra who rocked the night away. Kaitlin’s younger sisters shared a surprise performance of ‘Stand By Me’ and invited the newlyweds to join her and the rest of the band on stage. It was a fun and memorable moment for all, including one that’ll stay with us! The Edges Wed Photography
