In our quest to bring you classic autumn-inspired weddings, we jumped up & down when Martha at Blooms by Martha Andrews sent us Kristi and Justin’s recent event!
Here’s a little bit from Kristi about their wedding inspiration …
The inspiration for our wedding started with the lovely town of Sutter Creek. Justin and I both loved the friendly, comfortable, small town feel. It was really important for us to have a fun day that reflected us as a couple. Once we discovered Sutter Creek, we started checking out wineries and fell in love with Terra d’Oro. When they described to us how my dad and I would enter down the stairs and through the huge doors, it was too good to pass up.
Most of our favorite times together involve getting outside, fishing, camping and enjoying fresh air. The fall colors came naturally to us once we settled on the venue. With the beautiful trees, vineyards, and wooden trellis, it was the natural choice. Justin does a lot of graphic design for his work and since we both love fishing together, we decided to name all of the tables after local fish. Justin was inspired by a book on vintage travel posters and he came up with all of the designs for the table cards which also served as the menus. I got to choose my favorite country songs for the reception which included “River of Love” by George Strait and “Fishing in the Dark” by the Nitty Gritty Band. It was the perfect setting and the perfect group of family and friends.

We designed the cake with a lot of help from Justin’s sister, Shannon. She lives in San Francisco and took us to this lovely shop which sells nothing but beautiful ribbon. We spent hours sorting through different styles until we came up with the final design. Ingrid did a wonderful job putting it all together – and it tasted it even better.
Martha Andrews designed some pretty incredible florals to wow Kristi & Justin’s guests!
So to those of you planning fall weddings in the future, we’ve shared some beautiful examples of autumn florals at their very best from Martha Andrews. We thank Allison Stahl and Justin & Kristi for sharing this gorgeous day with us!
