Tuscan-Inspired Vineyard Wedding by Michelle Warren
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

What’s more romantic than marrying your high school sweetheart in the soft California sunlight? Together for fourteen years of life’s ups and downs, Jessica and Shawn said ‘I do” at the family-run Still Waters Vineyards in Paso Robles. Inspired by Shawn’s Italian proposal (he asked her to marry him in Rome’s Borghese Gardens), they planned a rustic, Tuscan villa-inspired celebration filled with dozens of beautiful vintage details. We can’t rave enough about the lovely images Michelle Warren sent over of the day—from the earthy bouquets to the decadent cupcake spread, everything glows with love.

Jessica and her bridesmaids spent the morning of getting ready in a private cabin on the Still Waters property while the groomsmen hung out in the nearby barrel room. They came together for the ceremony atop a hill overlooking a valley of olive trees. The bride used the breathtaking landscape as inspiration for her wedding favors—tiny bottles of olive oil from a specialty shop in downtown San Luis Obispo!

As the sun went down on the warm September night, sixty of the couple’s nearest and dearest dined family style on a meal of pesto arancini, plank grilled salmon, ricotta ravioli, and more Italian fare.  No detail of the reception spread went unaddressed by the sentimental couple. Rustic, romantic florals by April Flowers  topped off vintage crystal on each of the tables. Escort cards were hung from a raised ladder. Shawn’s mother collected antique trunks and other accents to surround the dessert spread (which featured cupcakes flavors from Enjoy Bakery: Chocolate Blackberry Syrah, Meyer Lemon Chardonnay, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Foster). Finally, the custom cake topper featured the couple swinging from an olive tree and a miniature model of the couple’s dog Luey—a perfect nod to their lives before and on their wedding day.   Read the rest of this entry »

A Tea-Themed Brunch Wedding by Orange Turtle Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Joy and Andrew wed at the La Jolla Women’s Club on a crisp, clear day in September. Between the tea-themed decor, carnation initials, and old-fashioned bicycle send-off, there are so many thoughtful details in their early autumn wedding that we simply don’t know were to begin. Almost every element of the charming backyard ceremony has a story behind it, and we’re beyond delighted to share them with you today. Special thanks to Orange Turtle Photography for sending these buoyant, airy images over! 

Andrew and Joy met at a church-sponsored singles retreat in January 2011. They hit it off after being assigned to the same worship group, and stayed in touch via email and Facebook (at the time, he lived in San Diego, and her her home base was the San Francisco Bay area). Not long after, Andrew proposed with a massive pink Post-it “Marry Me” sign meticulously crafted on a Lake Tahoe cabin wall during a family getaway. The romantic gesture became the basis for their wedding palette-—pretty pastel shades of the same color.
