Rustic Chic Sonoma County Winery Wedding

If I were to attend this alfresco affair, I would never leave. For starters, it’s at Arista Winery (hello dream venue) and with birchwood and mercury glass accents, I’m bound to pin every. single. image. With vendors like Off the Beaten Path WeddingsNicollette MollettNEVE BROS. INC. and onelove photography the entire day is downright dreamy.

From the beautiful Bride… I loved our combination of birchwood, mercury glass and soft pink and peach tones. It created a warm and chic atmosphere. I also wanted to incorporate something from Australia where Simon is from, so I especially loved the eucalyptus leaves.

I wanted our wedding to focus on everything Simon and I have shared with our friends and family for the past 7 years: warmth and love of an intimate and fun dinner party, great food, great wine, and wonderful company.

Mary Ellen’s Pinterest account and Style Me Pretty definitely gave me inspiration. I’ve always had a vision of how I wanted my wedding to look and I know Mary Ellen understood the “look and feel” I wanted and created it spectacularly!

The highlight of our wedding day was experiencing the overwhelming feeling of all of our friends and family gathered to celebrate the love and commitment Simon and I have for one other. My advice is don’t sweat the small things! Have a vision of what you’re after, but not an exact replica. It will save you time and stress and everything will look beautiful regardless.

Rustic Chic Chalk Hill Winery Wedding

Aside from the Bride’s gorgeous Amsale dress (swoon), my biggest takeaway from this rustic, cozy day? The absolute heart that it’s packed with. That love, it’s evident in every happy corner, every sweet smile, and every close embrace in the imagery captured by Matt Edge and the cheerful film Reel Eyes Media. Have a peek at the gallery for even more.

From Matt Edge Wedding PhotographyThe bride, Paige, really wanted the venue to shine, as she has family in Sonoma County, so Chalk Hill winery held a special place in her heart due to the location. An equestrian at heart, she fell in love with the reception venue being a true dressage arena. After that, she just added little touches like the tribute to their mom’s in the gold flamingos flanking the ceremony space, and the floating baby’s breath in the reception space. The sequined linen’s glammed up the space and created a beautiful juxtaposition in a space not primarily used for events. The awesome 80′s tribute band, the Spazmatics, ended the evening with everyone dancing.

From Jason Walz Photography… When the Groom, one of my best friends, contacted me to say he was engaged, I was thrilled. We share memories going back to fourth grade, and there was no way I was going to miss being a guest at his wedding. Furthermore, even though he didn’t ask me to do so, there was no way I was not going to photograph his wedding as my gift!

The groom told me it would be a casual affair with good food in Sonoma, which sounded great. But I had no idea I that it would be a SUPERCOOL and SOPHISTICATED casual affair with amazing details to boot. After hearing more about his and his fiancee’s plans, however, I knew it wouldn’t take much to talk the fabulously talented photographer Bia Sampaio (who happens to be my wife) into putting the weekend aside to photograph alongside me.

Barndiva, simultaneously casual and chic, had the perfect vibe for a Sonoma wedding, as did the bride and groom’s attire, the flowers, the food, wine, etc! And the personal touches, such as having a best friend officiate the ceremony, another best friend MC the evening, and yet another best friend contribute intimate decor touches including a seating chart, table name boards and place cards, knocked the charm factor out of the park.
