Jules + Chris

This elegant French country inspired wedding had our hearts fluttering from our first design meeting. It certainly doesn’t need to be said that Jules and Chris, above all else, have impeccable taste. From the bubbling champagne tower and artisan cocktails [complete with smokin’ bartenders] to the luscious floral and stunning lighting design – their celebration radiated fun, romance and beauty.

Their love story is similar to their style – simple, classic and beautiful. They met one fall evening at a mutual friends birthday party and no more than a month later Jules knew Chris was “the one”. Fast forward through a few yoga classes, dinner dates and happy years to New Years Eve in Hawaii where Chris got down on one knee and told Jules that she was “the one” – they lived happily ever after!

Karina + Mark

Their love story was like something out of a romantic novel.  They met while studying in Barcelona, Spain. He caught her eye during a romantic walk in Versailles, France.  Six months later after returning from an exchange program in Shanghai he asked Karina on their first date. Three hours, twelve miles, and several villages westward, their connection was forever cemented.  Their wedding was just as whimsical and romantic with a crisp white palette, floating florals and rich golden accents. Get ready to be whisked away.

Leah + Rob

Leah and Rob were so adorable together and their details for the day reflected the sweet simplicity of themselves.  Leah had envisioned their wedding to be rustic chic, elegant, fresh, romantic and of course intimate.  We decided on a color palette with lush white flowers with subtle hints of pink and champagne.  She handcrafted her alter, and various details inside the reception including the flower garlands.  It was truly a sweetly romantic day.

Marissa + Kevin

Marissa and Kevin have impeccable taste. We designed a wedding that showcased some soft romance with bold poppy red colors. Beautifully captured by Stacey Pentland.  Marissa and Kevin decided on a summer wedding in wine country and Solage located at the top of Napa Valley held their modern and chic styleMarissa glowed in her two piece Monique Lhullier gown and her satin Badgley Mischka heels.  And Kevin wore a sharp grey Hugo Boss suit and they left no detail unattended right down to the scent of the reception space.  Above all the tiny details it was the love and their chemistry that truly took your breath away.

Real Wedding: Tanya + Chris

This chic {and ridiculously gorgeous!} couple wanted to offer their guests a wine country experience that captured their NYC lifestyle. After searching high and low they found the perfect setting for their September wedding in Calistoga, Ca. Guests flew in from the East Coast for an early start to their weekend which kicked off with a rehearsal dinner in the wine caves of Clos Pegase Winery and spent the rest of the weekend wine tasting at a few favorite Napa Valley wineries, cruising through the quaint town on their bikes, and basking by the mineral pools in Calistoga. The highlight, of course, was their modern wine country nuptials at Solage Calistoga.

Real Wedding: Brooke + Matt

They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, and after being apart of this energetic wedding I can see why! There is something so romantic and impetuous about being caught in the rain with your true love. And when you aren't expecting it, what more could you ask for than to have all of your besties surrounding you to ensure a smile is on your face the whole day! Brooke and Matt had fun playing with the umbrella in the rain, and they were troopers when we made the last minute effort to pull the ceremony indoors. All of their guests cozied up indoors and watched as these two recited their vows with twinkles in their eyes. Personal touches included Brooke's initial-stiched ribbon wrapped around her bouquet, table numbers which declared the couples first date and other fun facts, and their cork-printed invitations to complete their wine country wedding.

Lisa and Bryan are such a fun couple so it was quite fitting f or all of their friends and family to travel to Calistoga for a fun-filled weekend of celebration. They kicked off their four-day wedding weekend with an intimate rehearsal dinner at Hans Fahden Wine Caves where guests mingled, wined and dined with background music of a piano echoing through the cave and bid a farewell to their guests a few days later with mimosa's and lawn bocce at their farewell brunch.

Real Wedding Liz and Burt: Calistoga Wedding

Napa Valley is one of the most sought after wedding destinations, and at the northern tip of the valley sits the quaint town of Calistoga. You may have heard of Solage, the newest posh resort in Calistoga which offers a variety of luxury amenities. With mountain views, lush gardens and barn inspired architecture it's no wonder Solage attracts couples for their wedding.  The spring colors, perfect weather, along with their vibrant personalities and sophistication were the perfect combination for this fun wedding.

Liz and Burt met while living on alternate coasts. While Liz was attending Law School in New York and Burt was focusing on his startup company in San Francisco, they met online. After months of phone calls and emails, Liz decided to travel to San Francisco for a weekend and meet Burt. While they weren't immediately smitten, their hearts grew fonder when Liz returned to NY to finish Law School. Once school was complete, Liz moved to California and their love blossomed. After purchasing their first home together, Burt proposed to Liz in the garden of their new home.
