Weddings: Vintage Vineyard {Part I}

October 18, 2011

This classic wedding took place in a gorgeous winery in Livermore, California earlier this Spring. I created the florals, print goods, and styled the event. It was a lovely, intimate ceremony and reception (about 80 guests) filled with  lots of personal details.

Here are the photos my hubby took (isn't he a natural?!):
I created vintage inspired tag escort cards and displayed them on a found wood fence that I spruced up with decorative nail heads. I carried out the tag design into the signs and table numbers and used black velvet ribbon to add some luxe. The bride added her own vintage birdcage to hold cards and letters.
For the ceremony programs, I designed mini booklets that coordinated with the rest of the signs and escort cards. 

We kept the flowers loose and romantic, with lots of texture.  I used Garden roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, ranunculus, queen anne's lace, anemones, scabiosa, sweet peas and lavender in purple and cream hues. Milk glass vases in different sizes and shapes added the vintage charm the couple wanted.
While the ceremony took place outdoors, the reception was held inside an old barn wine cellar.
I styled different areas with my own personal collection of vintage decor.
 The bride added her own Anthropologie monogrammed mugs, which we used as vessels for more florals.
