Sacramento Winery Wedding

Alicia + Nick’s Wilson Vineyard’s Sacramento winery wedding was featured on Every Last Detail this week!  With gorgeous photographs, the day was captured by Elaine Palladino Photography.  The look of the day was filled with soft-toned florals, eclectic centerpieces of bottles, books and crocheted doilies.  I love how the simplicity of everything came together so beautifully!

Alicia’s bridal bouquet was created from ‘Cafe au Lait’ dahlias, hydrangeas, spray roses, stock, roses and Queen Anne’s Lace.  We finished off the stems in a lace treatment to match her dress and added a brooch for a finishing touch.  I love how the soft-muted florals come together so elegantly!

For the bridesmaid’s bouquets, we added a bit brighter pops with some orange tones.  Again, we’ve used the ‘Cafe au Lait’ dahlias, spray roses, Queen Anne’s Lace and ranunculus.

Wilson Vineyards makes for the perfect setting for Alicia’s look.  It’s always important to remember that your design choices should fit into the context of your venue.  For example, here, we went for a more garden feeling palette for the florals, which goes nicely with the outdoor feel of the venue.

The men’s boutonnieres were created from spray roses, a nice hardy choice if it is a warm day.  We finished off the stems with grey ribbon to go with the men’s suits.  I love the pop of orange with the tie!

Centerpieces were created in bud vases purchased by the bride.  With an eclectic mix, it added a lot of interest to the tables.  Paired with crocheted doilies, vintage books in varying colors and the soft-toned florals, it all tied together nicely!

Congratulations Alicia + Nick!  May you enjoy many happy years ahead!

Rustic Peach-Toned Wedding

Brooke and Ben’s Taber Ranch Rustic Wedding was a great celebration to be a part of!  Taber Ranch sits in the Capay Valley, a rustic barn, surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards… it is amazing, and it always reminds me of home (The Central Coast) when I get the opportunity of working there! From the beautiful and eclectic garden to the view from atop the hill, it is an amazing venue (and a true gem) in Northern California.

Colors:  Orange, blush pink, soft coral

Style:  Rustic, Sweet, Soft-toned

Brooke and Ben were such wonderful clients; they took every detail into consideration, really making their event personalized and true to their style.


Personalized signs custom created for the wedding day.  I love this rustic touch!


The bridesmaids wore soft, blush pink-toned dresses with nude shoes.  Their bouquets brought in the rustic elements of the surroundings.  Flowers used included ‘Cafe Au Lait’ dahlias, scabiosa pods, fragrant stock, garden roses and dusty miller.

The barn was perfectly decorated with round tables, mahogany chivari chairs, succulent favors at each place setting and floral centerpieces of mismatched eclectic pieces from Botanica’s Inventory.

The brighter pops of orange were the perfect accent to the color palette.  Brooke and Ben were looking for a subtle color palette, with that little “pop” of color.  

The mix of wood elements with linen brings the soft and rustic sides together beautifully!  Each table had a photo of the couple and a place or trip they went on with a story behind each of them.  It’s these fun little touches that make your event unique!


We used wooden elements such as wooden boxes, log slices and succulents to stylize each of the tables.  I love these two signs the bride and groom had made.  So cute!  haven’t seen this before!

The beautiful cake was displayed on a large log slice.  Floral accents and a large bloom were added to this look.

A closer look at the rustic centerpieces.  With a mix of wood, metal, moss and vintage glass votives, all displayed on a burlap runner, it was gorgeous!

A sweets table we helped stylize.  Candy and mini pies were displayed at varying heights and on silver trays to add interest.

Sweet strawberry topped cupcakes displayed on wooden slabs.  It’s so important to tie your look together in every aspect!

I love this photo booth wall with the open frames!  Thought I’d share to inspire!  Congratulations to Brooke and Ben!  I know they have many, many happy years ahead!!
