Intimate Family Focused Wedding – With the Cutest Ring Bearers Ever!

At the Groom’s family’s vineyard, on a hill overlooking postcard worthy views, right where his father and his brother also said “I do,” he married his beautiful Bride. It was one family-focused detail among many, giving this California spring wedding a warm, inviting vibe that you just can’t fake. Mariel Hannah captured that love and her pics speak for themselves – see them all in our Vault right this way!

From Mariel Hannah… Liz and Lucas married within Lucas’ family vineyard, Dubost Winery. Countless members within this tight knit family married under that beautiful and special Oak tree, so it was no question that they would marry there as well. The views were stunning, over looking the rolling hills of Paso Robles as the sun set behind them.

From the Bride… Lucas and I had three words in mind when planning our wedding; simple, timeless, and intimate. Family is incredibly important to us. We wanted each moment in our wedding to hold special meaning to us and our families. Lucas started by giving me his grandmother’s ring while asking me to marry him with our families by our side. We then designed my wedding band using his grandmother’s diamonds. We used a design that she had previously worn. We chose to hold the ceremony and reception at his family’s winery, Dubost Winery. The ceremony itself was held at the top of the property nestled in the Oaks. Both his father and brother had held their individual wedding ceremonies there. The top of the hill, as we call it, is treasured and holds very special meaning to each one of his family members and now, us.

Keeping the family traditions going, I was gifted “borrowed” pearl earrings and pearl necklaces from my grandmother. They were originally my great-grandmother’s and each woman in my family wore them on their wedding day; including my late mother.

The most special part for both me and Lucas was the ceremony. Before walking down the aisle, my father had said some of the most special and treasured words to me. We laughed, we cried (I cried a lot) and then I got to see Lucas for the first time. We chose not to do a first look and I am so happy we did. Our emotions were so raw, and we felt it to be incredibly special to each of us. We chose to write our own words of love, which we shared with each other for the first time in front of our family and friends. It could not have felt more intimate and meaningful.

For the reception, we wanted it to be fun and relaxed. We especially wanted to highlight the beauty of the winery. We chose grey and cream accented heavily with olive branches. Each person received homemade peanut clusters that were my late mother’s famous recipe as the favor. We celebrated with good food music, dancing, a photo booth, and the most delicious cookies, cupcakes and ice cream!

Every moment from beginning to end, felt like us. It was our most favorite day!!!

More than 20 Vendors Came Together for this Beautiful Inspiration Shoot + Industry Dinner

When the Wedding Standard, a collective of wedding professionals, gets together, it’s not just a mixer or networking event. Instead, more than 20 of California’s Central Coast vendors (including Karson Butler Events) created a “mock” wedding to highlight their talent. See all the pretty details from Lindsey Gomes and Cameron Ingalls Photography in The Vault!

From Karson Butler EventsEarlier this spring, a team of the Central Coast’s best wedding vendors came together to produce a community dinner at Terra Mia Vineyard. It was nothing short of amazing! Over 60 Wedding Standard members gathered to enjoy company, cocktails and conversation in the beautiful setting of Paso Robles wine country. The Wedding Standard is a collective of wedding professionals who work for a love for their craft and have a pas­sion for what they do. They are pas­sion­ate about rais­ing a stan­dard of excel­lence in the wed­ding industry.

For this event, we had over 20 Artists pull together to make it not just a typical mixer or get together but a complete wedding experience; something most of us work to create regularly but rarely get to sit down and enjoy. Breaking bread together over an amazing meal prepared by Trumpet Vine Catering was a special treat! Models roamed the event and showed attendees what it would look like to get married at this spectacular new venue. We all got to witness first-hand the potential Terra Mia has to create an unparalleled atmosphere for our couples to say “I do”.

We (Karson Butler Events) worked with Noonan’s Wine Country Designs to pull together a color palette inspired by the venue – plum-tones and greens paired with inspired details that were both luxurious and approachable. Katie is amazing at using local floral and foliage in new and unexpected ways, as evidenced in the chandelier over the dancefloor and beautiful tabletop designs!

We loved partnering with so many great vendors on the Central Coast – home of our west coast office!

The Groom Built His Bride The Sweetest Wedding Day Surprise!

This groom? He’s setting the bar for husbands everywhere. “As a part of my wedding gift, Kenton surprised me by building the arbor we got married under. He put the whole thing together the morning of our wedding, and is now the entrance to my garden and will forever be a piece in our backyard,” said the bride. See how it all played out in the gallery from Rachel Solomon Photography.

From The Bride…From the moment Kenton & I met, things moved quickly. From falling in love, getting engaged, and planning our wedding, we knew God was directing our paths to become one. Kenton proposed in Paso Robles, CA, and we both loved the idea of getting married in the area.

We knew we wanted our wedding day to feel as private as possible, and reflect our personal style of timeless elegance. After a long day of touring many venues, we stumbled upon HammerSky Vineyards. We made it there just in time to see it before the end of the day. The moment we stepped onto the property, we knew this is where we would get married. The property feels so dreamy and allows for such an intimate setting thanks to the restored farm house onsite, which is where my family and I stayed for the whole wedding weekend.

Our dusty blue décor and personalized items were the perfect compliment to our dream vineyard setting. We designed our monogram to be wax sealed into our invitations. The monogram was also stitched into our table runners.

It was important to us that we tie in special family elements. Kenton’s mom handmade each one of our wedding favors, which was Kenton’s childhood favorite dessert and was eaten up by guests before dinner was even served! Lastly, as a part of my wedding gift, Kenton surprised me by building the arbor we got married under. He put the whole thing together the morning of our wedding, and is now the entrance to my garden and will forever be a piece in our backyard. It was such a meaningful gift to me that made our ceremony even more special.

Everything about our wedding went seamlessly. The whole day felt like magic. The property truly made the setting and gave our guests and us the dream-like experience we wanted. We couldn’t be more thankful!
