There’s nothing dreamier than a California wine country wedding and this lovely Atwood Ranch affair is about as fabulous as it gets. The sweet combination of lush, romantic florals by Anne Appleman and the uber-gorgeous stylings of Julie Atwood Events is almost too much to comprehend… and I haven’t stopped swooning yet. Luckily, Chrisman Studios was on hand to capture every last moment of rustic meets vintage charm, because I think this gallery and I are going to be lifelong friends. Join me there for even more!
From Chrisman Studios… For their wedding day, Lena and Jeff chose one of the most spectacular properties in California wine country – Atwood Ranch in Glen Ellen.
Guests were treated to pre-ceremony jars of pink and yellow lemonade and were given colorful Chinese parasols to shield them from the warm California sun – which also added gorgeous splashes of vibrant color to the green pasture where the ceremony was held.
During the vows, tears were plentiful as Lena and Jeff described how finding one another changed their lives.
Everyone danced the night away inside the barn that had been superbly transformed into a shabby-chic ballroom of vintage quirks and rustic elegance.
The bride made sure to blend some of her own DIY touches into the decor, such as the fabric garland she made herself that wove around the railing of the barn.
