Rustic Romance at HammerSky Vineyards

For a couple who wanted a wedding that celebrated love and family with a good dose of music, I think these two hit the nail on the head. It’s a rustic celebration under the stars coordinated by Galas By Gerry and captured by Trinity Wheeler Photography. And with a backdrop like HammerSky Vineyards, and a band that serenaded guests while they feasted and danced the night away, this wedding is not only gorgeous but fun too. See even more here.

From the Bride… Sonny and I met through mutual friends at the restaurant I was working at the time. He would come in the restaurant all the time after we met and would try to get information about me from my friends. He asked me out not that long after and we’ve been together ever since. That was 7 years ago. He definitely took his time before he was ready to get married but once he was, he jumped in head first. BTW – were expecting our first baby in June 2014!!

We knew we wanted an outdoor Rustic Vineyard Wedding in Paso Robles with a band and a really fun party. Hammersky was a big inspiration for all our rustic details because it fit into the setting so perfectly. Sonny was obsessed with having a ginormous stage for the band to play on. When the stage was being constructed Gerry and I were laughing because it was so huge. In the end though, it was perfect and the evening turned into one big concert with our closest family and friends. Sonny and I even jumped on stage at one point and joined in with the tambourine. It was a perfect night.

I wore my Nana’s watch who passed away when I was really young. It meant a lot to me and my family. It really was a perfect night under the stars. Live music, great friends and close family. Our wedding was everything we dreamed it would be and more.

Fall Wedding at Hammersky Vineyards

I don’t know the couple, but this Hammersky Vineyards wedding has me in tears. The blooms from Flowers by Denise were stunning, the color palette was perfect, but the thing that really got me was the intimacy and love between the newlyweds, so beautifully captured by Jaime & Chase Photography.

From the photographer… Seth and Miranda wanted their wedding day to feel like they just woke up and decided to get married at home and they felt that Hammersky Vineyards would be the perfect place to tie the knot. This decision to have the event feel spontaneous also influenced their guest list, which included a total of 10 guests- the bride’s parents, the groom’s parents, two brothers and sister-in-law, and three bridesmaids.

Their first look was lovely and took place under a massive 100 year old oak tree named “Uncle Dan.” Miranda and Seth looked so beautiful with the fiery orange vineyard rows behind them! Everything about their wedding day seemed to glow.

The groom’s father officiated the ceremony and once the I do’s were said all the guests enjoyed a beautiful and colorful table of appetizers and Hammersky Vineyards wine. The reception continued with a beautiful candlelit dinner and dancing before the couple waved goodbye to their guests.

The most amazing part about their wedding is the care and consideration they put into their details! Seth is a writer and Miranda is a graphic designer, so they used books, paper and graphic elements wherever possible. The day’s color pallette, which Miranda titled “sparkling neutrals”- gold, silver, blush, ivory, grey was inspired by her personal collection of books by F. Scott Fitzgerald. She even had the books shipped from from Minnesota to California to use as centerpieces!

Miranda spent months looking for mercury glass online and in antique shops, and rented all of the vintage silver pieces from the Dana-Powers House. Many of the other pieces that helped make up the dining table decor included items special to the bride, like her grandmother’s silver candlesticks, and her mother’s lace tablecloths. While the multitude of paper flowers that covered the dining table, dessert table, chairs and cake were made by her bridesmaids, Dawn and Lindsay. Miranda’s maid-of-honor, Sarah, contributed to the day’s details by hand beading the bride’s wedding dress sash and the ladies’ hair pieces. She also sewed the paper garlands that hung from the trees surrounding the cocktail hour/reception area.

A few of the other amazing details included the crystal chandelier that hung right above where the couple stood during the ceremony and the printed floral handkerchiefs that read “Will you be my Bridesmaid?” and “Will you be my Maid-of-Honor?” that Miranda gifted to her wonderful friends.

From the beautiful bride… Everyone was up early to set up the barn for dinner and dancing. Seth made breakfast while we put the final touches on our ceremony, and then I sequestered myself upstairs to get ready and keep calm.

Jess did my hair and makeup in the dining room overlooking the vineyard, while my bridesmaids and mom were in and out, simultaneously getting ready and setting up outside. At about 2:30 my mom helped me into my dress and everything became very real, very quickly! At that point all the nervousness was gone, and I was just giggly and excited, waiting to see my groom. My dad saw me for the first time in my wedding gown and had tears in his eyes when he said: “I’m not giving you away!” A few minutes later I watched from the upstairs window with my bridesmaids, squealing like schoolgirls, as Seth and Chase walked up to the tree (Uncle Dan) for our first look.

The rest of the day was amazing – full of laughter and hugs and kisses. We absolutely enjoyed every single minute of it. We wrote our entire ceremony, officiated by Seth’s father, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to say our vows to each other.

And the weather! It was absolutely perfect – warm and sunny all day, and cool and clear in the evening. It was the kind of weather that Minnesotans only dream of.

After the ceremony, Seth and I walked into the barn for the first time, and were completely blown away by how gorgeous it was. I couldn’t believe this was our wedding. The flowers were more than I could ever have imagined, and all of the handmade details worked perfectly together. It was relaxed, and beautiful and romantic. We shared a delicious meal of local favorites with our guests, and sipped wine for the rest of the evening, telling stories and thanking everyone for putting so much love into our wedding day.

At the end of the night, Seth and I danced to “Coney Island Baby” by Tom Waits, and sent our guests off with cake and hugs. After everyone left, Seth and I went back down to the barn to enjoy the quiet and last flickers of candlelight.

From Touch of Style… In front of their closest friends & family, Tiffany and Austin tied the knot on a beautiful afternoon in early June at HammerSky Vineyards in Paso Robles, CA. As the guests arrived, they were welcomed with Strawberry Lemonade, Tropical Iced Tea and Citrus Water. A beautiful display of organic strawberries, sour cream with brown sugar finished off the beautiful exposed wood farmhouse table. Guests made their way to the ceremony which was centered under a large oak tree; the branches extended out for natural shade. Dark wood chiavari chairs were available for guests to sit as they waited for the bride to walk down the aisle. Two large arrangements of flowers flanked the entrance of the aisle. Petals were scattered down the aisle leading Tiffany to her groom.

After the ceremony the guests were invited over to the cocktail hour. White couches with coral & peach pillows added a pop of color to the space. The reception tables were draped in a dupionique iridescence white linens and accented with dupionique blush napkins. The sweetheart table consisted of a white love seat and a gorgeous exposed wood coffee table. Coral & peach pillows accented the couch for a pop of color. String lights strung overhead lit up the reception. A crystal chandelier hung above the dance floor, giving it a romantic touch..

All of the paper goods were hand painted water color. The menus, table numbers, seating assignment, dessert names, Love notes to the bride & groom and programs were all cohesive and went well with the style and colors. Inside the barn was the magnificent dessert table! Hand dipped paper garland, in shades of pink, peach & cream were hanging from above. Mixed in between were gold circles stung down peaking out through the stands. The exposed wood table was filled with Austin and Tiffany’s favorite desserts. One side was labeled “Hers” and the other side was labeled “His”, indicating their preferences. The guests wrote personal love notes to the bride and groom expressing their love for them or gave them advice as they begin their life together.
