Our specialty is in personalizing each wedding that we do by letting its love story unfold through event design, flawless planning and distinctive details that show who you are as a couple. No visual detail is overlooked with us as we are design perfectionists, and no planning detail is overlooked as perfection and program flow is key to the most important day of your life. We act as a concierge service so that all the stress is eliminated for you and your family during the planning process as we want every moment leading up to the big day to be as fun, relaxed and enjoyable on your wedding day. We are romantics, we are design obsessed, we never get tired of being giddy over a good love story or receiving perfect invites in the mail, and most of all, we are in love with love. We can’t wait to be a part of your team and to begin building your dream wedding piece by piece!

All wedding menus are completely customized, and the school sources produce from its own 5th Street Farms Garden and works with the best local purveyors. Organic, sustainable produce, natural meats and poultry are all the hallmarks of Ramekins. At the end of a sumptuous wedding day filled with wine, food, and music, the wedding party can slip upstairs into quiet, plush bedrooms adorned with rustic French antique furnishings. Also inquire about our Kenwood Ranch location, a rustic, elegant setting surrounded by 75 acres of rolling vineyards. We would like to offer the SMP audience a complimentary welcome bar when they book their wedding with us if they mention that they saw us on SMP California.
