Loads of color isn’t for everyone but a little pop of hue is a universal language in the color department. It takes this classic white wedding and infuses it with a pretty citrus punch of blooms by Daisy Rose Floral Design and images of the day that have solidified our love affair with Em The Gem. Have a look here for more including polka dot dresses and a wedding gown that dreams are made of.


From The Bride…Brian and I both knew we wanted to get married in the San Francisco Bay Area, and after looking in the city and wine country, we knew that Viansa was the place. The setting there was just gorgeous and the staff, especially our coordinator Cortney, took care of everything perfectly. Brian grew up in Sonoma, so it meant a lot to us to have our wedding in his hometown, close to his family. Our ceremony was outside in the courtyard, and then we moved up to the terrace for cocktail hour, and finished with dinner and dancing in the tent. We loved bringing the bright colors of orange and yellow into our flowers, table settings, and other touches to add some whimsy to the wedding. We also added some personal touches to the ceremony, with our custom vows and a special yoga blessing at the end. We went with mini cupcakes and ice cream cones for dessert vs a traditional wedding cake, and my mom added a family recipe of lemon cookies to top it off.
