Something Blue Fall Winery Wedding

When it comes to meaningful details, this wedding reigns king. Case in point? The bride’s “something blue” bouquet made even more beautiful by Lux Events And Design. She had the bride’s family and fiance write one word to describe her, and had each sentiment embroidered on blue silk ribbons. It’s about the coolest accessory a bride could ever ask for, and you can see even more amazing ideas captured by Megan Welker.

From The Bride… Where do I begin? There were so many special details and moments of the day. Let’s start with details. One of my favorite details was my bouquet. My wedding planner surprised me with my “something blue”. She had secretly asked my family and Ryan for one word that described me. She then took those special words from each of the special people in my life and had them embroidered on to hand cut silk ribbons. When she presented it to me, I was filled with tears and joy. It was such a special touch.

A few other details that I just loved was the guest place card display. The winery where we were married made olive oil and each guest received a bottle as there place card. Each bottle was placed in a small linen bag and adorned with a handwritten tag and displayed on a vintage dresser and arch. Each guest got to take home a part of the wineries bounty of olive trees. One of the moments that felt special was being surrounded by my beautiful bridesmaids. Each and everyone of them are so important to me and I am forever grateful for their love and support they show me.

Another favorite moment of the day is when the photographer took Ryan and I out to the middle of the vineyard at sunset. She wanted to snap some pictures of just the two of us surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the winery. Being in the middle of the vineyard gave us a minute to take in the beautiful day and everything that was surrounding us, friends family, and nature!

What’s better for the holiday spirit then, well, spirits?! The idea behind our holiday cocktail party shoot was to create something that was comfortable and glamorous at the same time. We achieved this by introducing a mixture of textures: sequins and faux fur in the linens; flannel in the chairs; brass and colored glass in the tabletop accents; and just a touch of leather to ground it all. The venue, Whispering Rose Ranch, with its lodge-like equestrian feel and mountain views over the Santa Ynez Valley, created the perfect backdrop for a cozy, yet feminine, gathering among friends.

From Rebecca Yale PortraitsDiana and Gerry’s wedding was full of elegant and glamorous touches while embracing the rustic vineyard setting. The bride sparkled in her rhinestoned Jimmy Choo’s and Kate Spade earrings while the groom looked sharp in his bespoke blue suit. The couple’s favorite movie is Up so they incorporated the brightly colored balloons into their reveal before the ceremony and the bride surprised the groom with a very special “Ellie Badge” grape soda bottle cap pin from the movie. The Jersey natives made the day extra special by bringing their dogs along to California and they were dressed for the occasion in a bowtie and tutu. The couple said their vows under a beautiful California oak tree as the sun set behind them lighting up the Santa Ynez Mountains. After the intimate ceremony guests danced the warm summer evening away under rows of bulb lights strung up in the courtyard next to the vineyard.
