Romantic Vineyard Shoot at Justin Vineyards and Winery

I am guilty of some serious day dreaming, but can you really blame me when I spend my days swooning over shoots like this one captured by Allyson Magda? I mean, with floral design by Adornments Flowers & Finery, stationary and calligraphy from Laura Hooper Calligraphy, linens from La Tavola Fine Linen and rentals Casa De Perrin - you simply just can’t help but spend your day drifting off to dreamland with all this pretty dancing in your head.

From Love and SplendorJustin Vineyards and Winery is set in the rolling hills of Paso Robles with multiple venues available for hosting weddings and other special events. For this gorgeous shoot, however, the striking Chateau at the top of their property was selected as our backdrop. As you make your way up the driveway to approach the mansion, you feel as if you’ve been transported to Europe. The ivy-covered walls, the graceful staircase, the classic courtyard and reflecting pool all evoke an enchanted old-world setting. The mansion served as an opulent private estate until recently, and therefore is beautifully maintained both inside and out.

We embraced the classic elegance of the Chateau in designing a shoot that was romantic, feminine, and altogether luxurious. Our palette consisted of creamy ivories and whites, pale pink, and precious metal accents. The tabletop’s foundation was a stunning new fabric from La Tavola Linen featuring a beautifully “in-between” metallic color that is a cross between gold and silver. The subtle texture added a bit of edge and interest to an otherwise traditional look. Casa de Perrin set the table to perfection with gold and blush Florentine chargers, white china and pink glass salad plates, cut crystal glassware and champagne coupes and their extravagant 24-karat gold flatware. Graceful pink goblets added the perfect blush of color and tied in the silk dupioni napkins and florals. Placesettings were graced with lovely gold-foil printed menus from Laura Hooper Calligraphy, sophisticated in their simplicity. A bit of vintage floral trim brought the entire setting together.

Laurel from Adornments Flowers & Finery created refined drama with a tall centerpiece perched on an heirloom vessel in shades of bone and gold. I loved the artistic detail on the vase, from its gilded feet to the filigree designs. Gently curving French tulips and garden roses spilled lavishly over the vase’s bowl, along with loose vines and greenery for a garden-inspired feel. Additional fragrant blooms were placed in small gold julep cups. The movement in the arrangement made the tabletop a bit more accessible, despite all of the luxe details. I think it’s important to set a table that wows a guest but doesn’t alienate them.

Our models were real-life couples dressed in Kirstie Kelly gowns and Express grey suites, respectively. I especially loved the bride’s voluminous skirt and tie-shoulder details. A setting like the Chateau necessitates a glorious couture gown! The bouquets were composed of the same scrumptious garden roses in varying shades of palest pink, peach and buttery yellow. Long trailing ribbons completed the ladylike look.

Allyson Magda captured every detail beautifully! It was such a pleasure working with this team of creatives in reviving a bit of classic romance, and I think we were able to bring a bit of freshness to a traditional look.

Farm

From Danielle Poff PhotographyErin & Chente exchanged their vows this summer at Windfall Farms in Paso Robles, California. It was simply a stunning affair. With the green pastures and the beautiful barn as the backdrop, Erin, Chente & their guests had the night of their lives. Coral, tangerine with pops of red, tan & gold made up the fun palette. The ceremony was overlooking the green grass fields. The rustic wood arch was covered in greenery and florals. Small coordinating arrangements were hanging off the chairs lining the aisle. Chente stood at the alter alongside his groomsmen and watched for his lovely bride. Erin, looking so beautiful, was escorted down the aisle by her father while a family friend played the trumpet.

The rest of the day and evening was filled with love, great friends and fun surprises. A mariachi band played while guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers. Hay bale couches covered in fabric with bright colored pillows and small seating areas were available to for guests to hang out. As guests made their way into the center of the barn for the reception, they passed through the arch way with hearts in shades of coral and pink strung from above. The guest tables were in the center of the barn on the grass which was surrounded by beautiful horse stalls. Custom made pennant flags were hung from stalls labeling the accent tables, Dessert, Tacos, Coffee & Photo booth. At night these stalls had the perfect amber color up lighting highlighting these areas. The guest’s tables were draped in neutral linen with a coral napkin for a pop of color. On top of the napkin was white heart shaped sunglasses for each guest to take home. In the center of the table, were flower arrangements in dyed gold mason jars. The table numbers were handmade out of old barn wood. Erin & Chente’s sweet heart table was an exposed wood farmhouse table with a floral print runner. On the back of their chairs were wood signs saying “Novio” & “Novia” embellished with brightly colored flowers. As the night went on, guests danced under the bistro lights to the DJ playing all Erin & Chente’s favorite songs. Yummy desserts, an ice cream sundae bar and a late night snack taco bar kept the guests going the entire the night!

Rustic

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.
