Can you believe we're already four weeks into 2012? Also, can you believe the amazing weddings we've seen already this year? Well believe it, because the pretty continues in this California vineyard wedding, designed, planned, and flora'd by Jess Flood Event Design. It's a little bit classic, a little bit eclectic, and a WHOLE lotta bit stunning. And... Jessamyn Harris Photographer captured every little detail and put them in a full image gallery in order to satisfy your need for more!
Will and I met at a concert. Going to shows and finding new music has been a key element of our relationship. We wanted our wedding to reflect this, so we made music a theme. We created a compilation of songs from our favorite bands whose shows we had attended together to give away as favors. The tables for dinner were named after different music venues in San Francisco that we'd been to, and the seating cards were made to look like a concert tickets.

The most important thing to us was that people have a really good time and feel welcome. We didn't want it to be too formal; instead we wanted it to feel like a really fun party in someone's backyard. We picked a bluegrass band to play for the ceremony and reception. We had a selection of pies rather than a wedding cake. Our flowers were placed in a variety of old bottles rather than vases. We used succulents as our centerpieces instead of cut flowers. We loved the idea that the plants at our wedding would continue to live and be enjoyed by our guests even after the wedding was over.

The best thing about the wedding was that all our friends and family really enjoyed themselves. We kept hearing from everyone how much they liked our other friends and family members that they were meeting. We felt completely loved and supported and lucky to have so many incredible people in our lives.
