Now that you’ve fallen in love with this couple and their hoedown rehearsal dinner I think it’s high time we dive into the wedding day that followed. It’s one of those incredible celebrations that could only ever happen with a crew of top-notch vendors behind it, and thanks to A Savvy Event, Got Light, Paula LeDuc, plus Jessica Burke and Paperweight Films capturing the fun, that’s exactly what happened. Let’s not waste another second chatting and instead, head straight to The Vault.
From Jessica Burke…Allie + Constantine were married at Beaulieu Garden in the Napa Valley. With A Savvy Event at the helm and Paula LeDuc catering, it truly was a one-of-a-kind event. So many amazing touches – from the mirrored reception tables, to the insane lounge setups, crystal chandeliers and everything in-between, it was unforgettable for all!
From A Savvy Event…Allie and Constantine met in New York City, but chose to say their I Do’s on the West Coast, choosing Napa’s breathtaking Beaulieu Garden as their venue. The couple wanted a setting that was warm and welcoming, and one that could host their friends and family for an extended weekend of festivities. Napa, with its unmistakable charm and refined-country vibe, fit the bill perfectly.
The couple opted for a Black Tie affair–a fact that was illustrated by incorporating a black velvet ribbon in the oh-so-swanky invitation suite (which Nessa from The Card Bar executed beautifully). Soft, elegant and romantic details peppered the entire affair–from the French silk ribbon that tied the bride’s bouquet of white and blush peonies, to pink sequined cocktail linens that added that special celebratory flair to the overall aesthetic.
Arrangements both soft and grand boasted everything from garden roses to hydrangea to anemones. Trailing passion vines finished off the florals, adding a touch of whimsy to the formal affair. Guests dined al fresco under the shade of an age-old Sycamore arbor–arguably one of the venue’s most ethereal details. Crystal drop chandeliers were suspended over mirrored dining tables–creating an absolutely magical secret-garden-esque area for guests to celebrate. A myriad of dreamy candlelight and a mix of unexpected florals adorned each table.
Two white leather bars, accented with super chic brass studs and gold accessories were stand-out pieces at the event, and framed the venue’s glimmering outdoor pool perfectly. We created a lounge area (complete with formal black cane back chairs) where guests could relax and mingle. Our favorite detail, though? Plush pillows that boasted the couple’s custom monogram sat pretty on tufted white linen couches and made for a detail guests won’t soon forget.
Overall, the event was the perfect balance of Big City Chic and Napa Au Natural. We absolutely adored working with Allie and Constantine to create an affair that reflected their interests and tastes (and one that everyone–including Allie’s 90-year-old Grandfather–was able to enjoy).
