If you thought this was just another Sonoma wine country wedding, think again! Because this couple not only rocked an ombre aisle of rose petals on their big day, but they also incorporated color like you wouldn’t believe. From the prettiest pink reception dreamed up by Charmed Events Group, LLC to the blushing bouquets, Melanie Duerkopp captured it all to share in The Vault!
From Charmed Events Group LLC…Let’s have color, more color…And lots of it! This was the resounding theme of this sweet couple as we started to design the day. Because their wedding was taking place during the heart of summer at one of the most beautiful venues in Wine Country, we wanted to make the wedding fun, colorful, cheery and bright! We used a fun color palette of sherbert hues in coral, mustard yellows, peach, and shades of pink for the design, paired with summer fruits you’d find on fruit stands such as mini oranges and lemons.
Their ceremony took place on the lawn at Cornerstone Gardens with the lovely vineyards on the side and a waterlily pond in the front. With the help of Poppy’s Petalworks, we created a draped opening that was adorned with jasmine vines and bright and cheery blooms. The aisle showcased a decadent and full display of ombre petals in their color scheme. We adorned the aisle chairs with colorful ribbons in their palette accented with blooms.
For cocktail hour, we had a “refresh” station of flavored lemonades for guests to enjoy. Each guest had a mason jar labeled with their names that were pre-filled and guests were invited to take their mason jars home as a memento of the day. We had bowls of fruit to welcome guests at the bar during cocktail hour as well as when they arrived at the ceremony.
Their reception took place under a beautiful tent. We had a beautiful tablescape of coral linens accented with fresh bowls of fruits and beautiful flowers in gold urns. The most unique part of their wedding were the customized, floral placemats that were individualized per guest, they made for an amazing pop of color on the tables. We also accented each place setting with mini sprigs of oranges. Guests enjoyed dinner under the tent and then danced the night away in the barn.
