Weddings that include the words peonies, garden roses, and winery are guaranteed winners in my book, but when you also add in one of the most gorgeous brides ever, words simply stop working. I mean, yowzas. Not only is the bride a real knockout, but Clos LaChance Winery takes the cake for one of the most striking locations west of the Mississippi. And don’t you fret, every lovely moment of this day was caught by the camera of Terra Tabbytosavit Photography, all of which are in our gallery right here.
From Lani Elizabeth… I was memorized when Cassie the bride walked in the door to our studio! Not only was she gorgeous and well-styled with a huge smile and such warmth to her, but she had the sweetest southern twang I ever did hear! We’re not used to seeing many Arkansas girls up here in northern California.
Cassie’s desire for her wedding was clear: elegant, vintage glamour in shades of pink. Not too stuffy, not too contrived and not too over the top. She wanted her guests to feel comfortable so they could relax and have a great time at a big party. Being an Arkansas native transplanted to southern California and having worked in Poland and all across Europe, this wedding was a destination affair for most of the guests. Held at the beautiful Clos LaChance Winery, the setting couldn’t have been more spectacular on their May date. Terra Tabbytosavit, the San Francisco-based photographer, did a phenomenal job capturing the spirit of the day.
With oodles of peonies and garden roses in all shades of pink, who could go wrong? Plus some succulents, of course, for fun. All the centerpieces were created with a hodgepodge of vintage vessels and stacked antique books from our collection, just like you might find at grandma’s house in Arkansas.
