Real Wedding by Alison Events
June 6, 2008

When the girls at Allison Events in San Francisco sent me this wedding, I swooned. The colors are so rich, the style is this perfect rustic elegance...everything just seems so beautiful.


Planning done by Alison Events, Event Design by Nicole Sillapere, Photography by Mel Barlow, Venue is Calistoga Ranch

From Kelsey at Alison Events...

Originally the couple decided to get married on the dam overlooking the small lake on property. It ended up raining that morning and we had to move to our plan B. We moved the ceremony indoors to part of the restaurant, and the reception was held in the wine cave. It ended up being wonderfully cozy and inviting.

Both Ali and Elliot wanted to have a fun colorful event and gave us complete design freedom do do something unique. They wanted it to be playful and fun but also bold. Ali, being an industrial designer, wanted something aesthetically different and unique. They were more contemporary in style which is why they were drawn to Calistoga Ranch and it's modern California architecture.
