After touring several wineries with Sarah and Connie who are based in San Francisco, Campovida proved to be the perfect choice for the couple who wished to create a weekend escape for their family and friends. Campovida’s lush garden along with mountain and vineyard views would be the perfect backdrop for our couple who wanted to create a wedding that would marry their bohemian and modern styles in perfect balance. They settled on a fall wedding where moody florals and jewel-toned touches would reflect their wedding style choices.
Guests arrived into the garden pathway which leads down a road with views of vineyards, and mountains before they turned into the tunnel of gardens, marked with a personalized acrylic welcome sign that hung from the arbor. Guests were greeted with beverages and mingled while taking Polaroid photos and browsing through the photo guest book. Sarah and Connie’s ceremony took place under a canopy of grape vines and incorporated both of their cultures by way of a minimalist copper chuppah draped with soft white linen and the reading of a Chinese poem. The two were a vision of beauty and love as they exchanged vows which were officiated by their close friend.
Cocktails followed the ceremony in the middle of the gardens where we had cocktail tables set with grey printed linens that served as a modern element. Dinner was served in the circular garden surrounding a fountain with a magical canopy of wisteria growing overhead. Rich velvet linen in slate grey and moody autumnal florals by Hawthorne Flower Studio set the tone for the bold and romantic reception design. We added small touches of modern flair to accent and accentuate the stunning blooms by using acrylic etched table numbers, black and gold flatware, and muted mauve velvet napkins for the menus to be placed on. Each menu featured bold modern black text and a hand applied copper embellishment to tie in subtle gold accents. To end the night on a sweet note, dessert included four different types of sweets from locally sourced vendors which included a wedding cake, miniature pies, an ice cream bar, and beignets.
The evening was spent celebrating Sarah and Connie in the most beautiful way, and we are so grateful to have brought their dreamy wedding vision to life at Campovida!
