From Shannon Leahy EventsHeather and Josh wanted to give their guests the quintessential wine country weekend, selecting Kunde Family Estate as the perfect location for their wedding.

For the design, we wanted to balance the brides love for neutrals and organic materials with fun pops of color. Seasonal stone fruit became the inspiration for our color palette – deep plum, golden yellow/orange, and rich, berry pink. To add a little bit of glamour we added rose gold metallic accents and carried them through the invitation all the way to the flatware on the tables.

Wedding guests enjoyed fresh California fare by Componere Catering, and finished the meal with pies flown in straight from Texas from the Groom’s favorite pie shop, Royer’s Cafe. They ended the evening dancing under Kunde’s ancient oak trees lit by glowing market lights to amazing live music by N’Demand, the couple’s favorite dance band from Los Angeles.

From L’Relyea EventsThis St. Francis wedding was an autumn evening dream. This Atlanta, Georgia couple invited their guests to join them for a romantic & intimate winery affair. We wanted to play into the time of year by focusing the colors on burgundy, cream and some greenery. It created a elegant yet cozy event as fall took its place in wine country. We added simple yet significant details throughout, from weaving pashminas on the ladies dining chairs for extra warmth, elegant warm florals throughout, up-lights illuminating the vineyards, and twinkle lights to create a romantic atmosphere for the guests to dine and dance throughout the evening.

From The Bride…I met Chad in one of the most exciting and romantic places you could meet your future husband: the office. Ok, so while that isn’t the most exciting of places to meet, the journey we have been through together since our initial meeting and courtship has been an amazing one, filled with a common interest in traveling, enjoying new foods, and living life!

After a dating period of 4 years, it was time for Chad to pop the question. He wanted the proposal to be memorable, but also a surprise. He convinced me he was taking me on a surprise birthday trip, as my birthday fell around the same time as our engagement. Since birthday surprises were not the ‘norm’ throughout our relationship, I was slightly suspicious, although very excited, so I managed not to ruin the surprise.

His trip took us both to the beautiful islands of Turks and Caicos, where Chad had a private catamaran chartered to take us out to an uninhabited island, where he proposed on the beach!

Since the proposal fell in the month of December, and the fall is my favorite time of the year, that left me less than a year to plan, so I knew I would need the help of an expert wedding planning team. With the help of Julia and the l’Relyea Wedding Planning team, my vision was able to come to life from across the country!

I always loved the concept of destination weddings. Weddings that only last a few hours to me just seem too short, and I really wanted to enjoy the company of friends and family from across the country for an extended weekend. Chad and I had visited the Napa Valley/Sonoma Valley region in the fall of 2013, and decided this would be a great spot for a destination wedding. Many of our friends had expressed an interest in visiting the area, but had yet to make plans to do so. This gave them the perfect opportunity to visit the area.

I started working with l’Relyea events in February with a visit to the area to tour different venues. They put together a complete schedule to see 10 venues in just 2 days. Chad and I chose St. Francis for its combination of an amazing view, a beautiful property, and ‘blank canvas’ as you might call it. This would not be a cookie cutter venue, as each detail had to be selected from the chairs and tables to the linens.

The only other trip I made to the area before the big day came in April where we had our engagement session with Mike Larson, visited caterers, tasted cake, and had a walkthrough of the venue. Julia immediately started painting the picture for me as we walked through and discussed where each part of the event would take place.

Sonoma Valley Wedding at Kunde Family Winery

The heart behind this wine country wedding? It’s simple, really. In the words of the Bride, “Every detail of the wedding took a cue from our relationship. Not overly traditional or noisy or busy, just a simple, classic celebration with our favorite people on earth.” That’s a vision we can wholeheartedly get behind, and when that day happens to be photographed by Sylvie Gil and filmed by Morocco Lee, you better believe we’ll happily welcome the entire gallery into The Vault.

From the Bride… Life is full of uncertainties, but when it comes to Justin and my relationship, there are a few things that have never wavered. Most notably, our love for one another and our love for wine. So when he surprised me at my doorstep on Christmas Eve with a proposal, we immediately went to work planning our dream wedding in Sonoma Valley.

Eighteen months later, we were saying ‘I do’ under two gorgeous, old California Oaks on top of Boot Hill at the Kunde Family Estate, surrounded by the valley, the vines, and the overwhelming love of our family and friends. Every detail of the wedding took a cue from our relationship. Not overly traditional or noisy or busy, just a simple, classic celebration with our favorite people on earth.

We knew our guests would be traveling in from all corners of the world, so we planned a weekend of events for everyone to get to know one another and experience some of our favorite spots in wine country. We loved that by the time the wedding rolled around, new friendships had formed and we could all just enjoy the moment together. Not to mention, a few glasses of wine!
