A Colorful Sonoma Wedding with an Ombre Petal Lined Aisle

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 LLCLet’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.

Chic Wine Country Wedding With Pops of Pink

From Rebecca Johnson of Kristi Amoroso Special Events… Dana and Charles were excited to plan a wedding in Sonoma as this is one of their favorite places to come, spend time and enjoy great wine and food, on the weekends and they were excited to welcome many of their guests from the East Coast where they both grew up.

Finding the perfect venue was very important to them. They were looking for something unique, private, and modern. The Glass House was ideal as it is surrounded by the vineyards that were so important to the bride and groom, but also offered the highest level of sophistication and elegance. The groom’s Greek heritage was felt in their hosting of the ceremony at the beautiful Nativity of Christ, Greek Orthodox Church.

After a traditional Greek ceremony, guests were transported by shuttles, drinks in hand, to the reception venue in Sonoma. Actively involved with the florist, the bride added some sentimental touches such as a non-traditional guest book where guests signed rocks and put in a glass vase, family photos at the cocktail reception, a well thought out and designed back bar with uniquely displayed items and even a wine tasting bar with wines made from the surrounding vineyards. The cocktail reception also featured a wonderful raw bar and the guest house had a cheese charcuterie room, both were devoured by the guests.

Dinner was set around the pool with the Jazz vibe band, Ever Music group, playing in the background. As night fell and the vineyard’s rows were illuminated, the guests partied late into the night, snacking on late night savory bites, desserts and cake while the DJ spun party tunes until the last guests departed this amazing wedding event, fulfilled.
