For anyone planning a Fall Wedding, this affair photographed by Ryan Ray should be at the top of your inspiration list. It's autumnal with a style savvy twist. Honestly, even the pumpkins look glamorous and anytime black and white striped linens are involved, we just KNOW it's going to be a feast for the eyes. So get ready because here comes the gorgeous Bride with a knock-out wedding in tow and Halloween may be over but with details like this, you're going to be counting down the days until next October. See more of this pretty Sonoma wedding in the full gallery.
From the bride... Sonoma has such a "farm country charm" to it, and that is one of the reasons we love it so much. We love the wine country and the laid back atmosphere of Sonoma. It suits us perfectly as a couple. We wanted our wedding to be easygoing, fun and enjoyable for all of our guests. We had about 72 guests travel from different parts of the country to celebrate with us, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The view from the tent was breathtaking and exactly what I had envisioned.
I can't get enough of black and white stripes, so we used an outdoor fabric to make some table toppers. I love the way it looked with the pumpkins. I love October and I love pumpkins, so we used mini pumpkins on each place setting, as well as some of the centerpieces. We used really heavy rustic-looking candlesticks to do some larger flower arrangements and had mismatched mercury glass votives everywhere! I purchased the votives in warm colors like browns and oranges so when they were lit, they gave a warm glow to the centerpieces. The chandeliers in the tent MADE the room! I loved the way they added a little elegance to the tent — having the sides rolled up inside the tent so you could see out over the vineyard was amazing! Everything really turned out perfectly, and to hear guests say that it was hands-down the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to, well, it made me so happy. But not as happy as becoming Ty's wife made me — I've never felt more loved. :)
