Charming Southern Brunch by The Nichols
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Kristin and John‘s Austin wedding was chock-full of charm and inspiration…  We’re so delighted to share their day with you!  The noontime ceremony and brunch reception were photographed by our favorite Austin-based photography duo, The Nichols.  The couple wed at the Barr Mansion, an exquisite organic event venue on acres of lush green property.  Kristin looked fresh and stunning in a Paloma Blanca ballgown, while the bridesmaids wore violet dresses by J. Crew.  All carried beautiful pink peony bouquets…  We love the way their berry and violet-hued wedding emblem design tied together the color palette and gave that hint of Southern charm. 

A warm rainbow of ranunculus gave life to the reception tables inside the Artisan Ballroom, a rustic building with floor to ceiling windows.  Guests were treated to a classic cake, a strawberry torte, and mini herb garden favors.   A sweet congratulations to Kristin and John!  You can see more from their wedding in our gallery!

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
