Take everything you love about a Tuscan-style wedding – think gorgeous garland, organic, loose bouquets, and olive branch details and pair it with black tie elegance. The result? This wedding designed by So Eventful. You’d never know this Italian-inspired day actually took place in Sonoma, and we’re happily welcoming the images from Michele Beckwith into The Vault.
From The Bride…Under the guidance of Marisa (planner), our florist and vendors, we chose a soft color palette that would complement our “Tuscan black tie” wedding aesthetic and highlight the already beautiful Mayacama backdrop. Aubriana Kasper at The Bloomery Co. hit the nail on the head with gorgeous green garlands, organic and loose bouquets and a show-stopping ceremony arch. Greg’s love and extensive knowledge of animals was brought to life through the magical watercolor paintings by the Maid of Honor Eva Babiak. Bridesmaid Danielle McWaters custom-designed the invitation suite and all wedding-related paper goods, including the olive oil gift tags. Grandparents of the bride donated their own Machado Vineyards’ olive oil to be “bottled with love” and set at each guest’s place setting…Greg’s groomsmen walked out to the Game of Thrones theme, and we recessed in celebration with a favorite Brazilian samba song played by samba drummers leading guests to cocktail hour. Thanks to friends, family, vendors, Mayacama, and the incredible So Eventful team we had an unforgettable wedding weekend at a venue that we will return to again and again to relive the beautiful memories of our special day.

From The Bride…Matt and I met in San Francisco and after a couple of years dating, Matt completely surprised me and proposed while hiking our favorite Muir Woods trail. When we first began planning, we had tunnel vision on all the small details but as the planning continued we realized we needed to determine what we wanted our wedding to feel like. We knew we wanted to create a relaxed environment focused on our love and our guests where everyone could share a few laughs and joyful tears. Once that was determined, we focused on the bigger picture and started hiring vendors that we felt could best help us create that feeling and the smaller details just fell inline. We hired amazing vendors that all had a deep love for their profession and who we felt a personal connection with. Our venue, Cornerstone Gardens, was exactly what we were looking for and was the perfect backdrop for our day, not to mention we lucked out with 80 degree weather in April. Our photographers, Erin Hearts Court, are an adorable married couple who recently moved to Napa and consistently capture amazing images of love and joy. Our caterer, Sage Catering, delighted our taste buds with an engaging family style meal focused on foods Matt and I love. Our Florist, Siren Floral Co, was given free rein to create our floral beauties and her creativity and enthusiasm exceeded our expectations. Our wedding planner and guitarist are both great friends of ours and we were so lucky to have their support. My sister, Courtney, designed the majority of our printed materials from our save the date to menu’s and my older sister, Shannon, did her magic on my hair. I could continue to give praise to everyone who helped us and put in their labor of love but overall Matt and I surrounded ourselves with people we felt would emulate our personalities and make our day a day filled with joy and beauty. Our wedding day was exactly the laid back day we dreamed of and could not have been more “us.” Like most brides and grooms, we wished the day would have never ended and in the words of my husband at the after party “getting married is so fun.”

As their photographer Coco Tran said so well, “there are beautiful representations of love around the world, though nothing quite so magical as the rolling green hills, vibrant vineyards and mouthwatering foods of Tuscany,” and so this couple took that Italian inspiration and ran with it. With the help of Whitney Nelson Events and Poppystone Designs they created a magical vineyard celebration and with the Bride beaming (thanks to Bella Bridal), we have a gallery that we’re not leaving anytime soon – see it all in our Vault right here!

From Coco Tran… There are beautiful representations of love around the world, though nothing quite so magical as the rolling green hills, vibrant vineyards and mouthwatering foods of Tuscany. As the most romantic destination the couple was fortunate enough to travel to, they were inspired to recreate that inclusive magic for their friends and families closer to home in beautiful Sonoma. Inspired by simple, yet flavorful cuisine, fresh and colorful florals with a hint of antique gold and soft lighting, their intimate wedding was designed to bring everyone closer in the celebration of love and family.
