A Ruby & Violet Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Talk about romantic… Vancouver natives, Dianne and Richard, had a destination wedding at the Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley… the ceremony was lovely, against the beautiful landscape of the resort.. the reception was utterly exquisite, filled with candlelight.  But most of all, we’re swooning over the ruby and violet color palette. Many congratulations to the happy couple and a special thanks to Briana Marie for sending this over!  See more photos in our Real Wedding Gallery.

Dianne and Richard are the sweetest couple you can imagine, and wanted to travel from their hometown Vancouver, BC, to Napa Valley for their November wedding.  Food and wine are very important to them, so they selected the Calistoga Ranch for their special day.  In addition to amazing cuisine and paired wine, the resort features intimacy and luxury accommodations that Dianne and Richard wanted for their guests.  This is an especially close family, because Dianne’s twin sister is married to Richard’s first cousin and best friend, making this a true family affair!  There were twenty-eight guests in attendance, including two-week-old baby Isla who received her passport within hours of the wedding and traveled with her mom, the bride’s sister and Matron of Honor, to arrive at the last minute!

Two weeks later Dianne and Richard hosted an at-home reception for over a hundred friends and family members.  As the bride describes, “It was a bit crazy at the time trying to organize two events within two weeks of each other, but it was an amazing night to celebrate our marriage with all our friends and family and have everyone be a part of our happiness.”  -Suzy Berberian

Romantic Sonoma Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

I thought Kristie and Matt’s wedding was such perfect inspiration for the bride who wants an ultra-feminine color palette with understated, elegant style. The gorgeous couple met at a coffeehouse six years prior to marrying in a romantic wedding at a California vineyard.  See the full photo spread and story in our Real Wedding gallery this week!
