From Vanessa...

My vision for this vintage-chic preppy vineyard wedding would include an intimate ceremony followed by a mini wine tasting with a selection of gourmet cheeses and fresh fruit. Following would be a family style reception with long wooden tables adorned with white linens and soft patterned napkins. Clusters of different shades of loosely packed pink flowers and fresh herbs in terra cotta pots would be grouped down the tables. Guests could top off their dishes with fresh mint, rosemary, and thyme. I can just imagine the smell of the herbs floating through the air... There would be a fantastic band serenadaing the guests throughout the evening. The soft candlelight hanging from the trees would cast a warm glow on the event. The bridesmaids could be dressed in raspberry tea length dresses with pearl necklaces and green pashminas. Perhaps the groom could wear a seersucker or tan suit and the bride a vintage inspired gown. Simply gorgeous.
