From Shannon Montez... Rosie and Alex had the most perfect backyard wedding! (It helps that they have a vineyard in the backyard.) From the towering oak to the lake and the vineyard, the setting was absolutely breathtaking. I would say the theme of this wedding was "family". It was so beautifully family oriented, with the long tables and the dinner served family-style. I loved watching the guests pass the food around and enjoy each others company. The handmade details fit perfectly... from the fan/program to the chalkboards labeling things to the vintage cake stands, every detail was perfect.
