Traditional, Elegant Wedding in California, III
July 8, 2009
United States

If you are just now stopping by, we are devouring THE most beautiful wedding that Lisa Lefkowitz sent us. Lisa is a dream come true, always sending us affairs that are sophisticated, elegant and utterly gorgeous, with details that make me swoon time and time again. This wedding, designed by the fabulous Alison Hotchkiss, is that...and so much more.

A few more details from Lisa Lefkowitz...

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the lawn as the sun dipped behind the hills. Kings tables were draped with creamy beige linens and topped with glass chargers. Lauren Godshell of Branch Floral Design created a natural white and green palette and played off the natural surroundings by bringing in wood pedestals and platforms. Guests picked up their escort cards from wooden trays filled with dried green peas.  The tables were labeled with aged wooden table numbers which were staked into the flower arrangements.

And here is a little peak at their menu (so that we can be even more jealous than we already are)...

First Course:  Salad of organic greens, grilled garden peaches, candied walnuts, and prosciutto

Second Course:  Pan roasted halibut, dungeness crab, sweet corn soubise

Third Course: Grilled tenderloin of beef, heirloom zucchini croquettes, and cabernet sauvignon jus

Guests danced the night away inside the Vintner Room under a cluster of Chinese lanterns and enjoyed chocolate cake with raspberry sauce from Perfect Endings.  The event came to an end with the last dance to “Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong and guests were whisked away on shuttles to continue their celebration in downtown Yountville.
